The Game of Harmony
DOS - 1990
Description of The Game of Harmony
E-Motion (E for Einstein) is a nice little action-strategy game developed by The Assembly Line with fairly original gameplay. Quite hard to master, so probably not suited for everyone. The US release by Accolade was called The Game of Harmony, which is the same game, just with a different title screen.
We all know how extremely boring our science lessons are (or were) at school, but this game makes science rather more interesting. You control a skimmer which you use to collide atoms and molecules together so they annihilate each other, but if run out of time, the atoms will reach critical mass and you'll lose a life. Also, if two atoms of the same colour come together, a new atom will be produced. The graphics are quite nice, even though there's not all that much to see! There isn't much sound either, but it's still reasonable.
It is quite a good game, but it's a bit too tricky for my liking. Recommended if you like the likes of Atomino, or other challenging block-related puzzlers.

Utter BS, "Wise" Old Man. Harmony runs at a standard 320x200 VGA/MCGA resolution and only uses 256 colours.

Assembly Line wrote this for the sheer purpose of pushing the then-new 32-bit SVGA video cards to their 640x480 "16 Million Colors" limits. Unless you're a stoner/hippie/junkie, you'll probably find this a bit hard on the eyes. Had it been a screensaver instead of a game, it would be about as memorable as After Dark. If you absolutely have to try this out, and you're not on any sort of controlled substance, wear a pair of polarized shades to reduce retinal overload.
