Atomix takes place in a maze like arena. A number of atoms are scattered around the arena and it is the players job to slide the atoms around until they form the shape of the molecule shown in the box on the right.
When the player clicks on the atom he wishes to move, arrows will appear around the selected atom. To move the atom click on the arrow which points in the direction that you wish it to move. The atom will then slide in that direction until it is stopped by a wall or another atom.The molecule can be assembled anywhere in the arena where it fits, but it is easier to build it in some places than others.
The game automatically ends when you slide the last atom into position.
