Doodle God is a game made by Avallon Alliance Ltd., and it can be found on

In Doodle God, you are playing the role of God, and you are in the process of creating the world.

You have your four major elements to work with: earth, wind, water and fire. However, as Doodle God most realize that’s not enough, so usually a player will combine the elements, which fills the world with a bunch of magical creatures.

Doodle God is a matching puzzle game where you have to take elements and combine them to make new elements.

Some of the elements are ordinary. For example, if you combine fire and earth, you get lava.

Some are more clever. If you combine fire and water together you get alcohol.

Combining more advanced elements with other elements creates even more interesting things. Combining alcohol with water makes vodka, for example.

I really like Doodle God because it is a simple game that makes me think critically about simple things. I also think it’s interesting to try to combine things just to see what happens.

The game gets fun when I am able to put two and two together and make something new. The graphics are relatively good; you’re not just looking at blocks moving around. However, it doesn’t graphics comparable to games such as Call of Duty.

Unfortunately, Doodle God does not have much when it comes to game play. All you do is match elements until there aren’t any more elements to match. Once you are done matching, the game is over and your can either be done or you can try again.

There is also some frustration from sitting there for what seems like hours trying to find two elements that work together. In the end, it seemed like the only right solution was to match every single thing with everything else until I got lucky and matched something correctly.

All in all I really do enjoy playing this game despite the frustration and what some might call oversimplification. All of the cons for me seem to be outweighed by the critical thinking parts, which I really enjoyed.
