Little Alchemy is a creative and educational crafting game where players combine different elements to create new items. Starting with basic elements like air, earth, fire, and water, players mix these to produce more complex items.

You can play Little Alchemy Classic for free in your web browser! If you want to play the sequel, that’s Little Alchemy 2.

How to Play

Start with the basics

There are four starting elements. These are fire, water, Earth, and air. The game encourages exploration and experimentation, as each new combination unlocks unique items, contributing to a growing collection of elements to explore. It's an engaging way for players of all ages to learn about various combinations and their outcomes in a virtual environment.

Mix the elements

You can access the available elements in the sidebar. Each new item you produce will appear there! The canvas can get a little messy as you test out more elements, so there is a cleanup button you can use in the bottom right to wipe the slate clean.

Alchemy combinations

Recloak is constantly updating Little Alchemy Classic with new items to craft. There are currently 560 items to discover in this original game.

Some combinations will be more evident than others, and there are often more ways than one to create a new item. Some combinations rely on logic while others require more creative, out-of-the-box thinking. Here are some basic creations so you understand how Little Alchemy works:

  • Fire + Earth = lava
  • Earth + air = dust
  • Steam + air = cloud
  • Earth + lava = volcano
  • Fire + stone = metal

These are all logical combinations. However, some don't seem as obvious, like water + horse creating a hippo. Sometimes you have to think outside the box and mix elements you wouldn't expect to create anything just to see what happens.


If you reach a point where you can no longer find combinations, there are extensive guides online that can help, like on the Fandom page.
