Big is often used as a synonym for significant, powerful, extensive, expanding, serious, and large. For the same purposes, “Little Alchemy 2” uses the element Big. Many other elements can be created with the help of the Big element. Any combination of ingredients can be used to create Big. But you can’t finish the game without reaching a certain point:
Make the Whole Wide World
Long before there were humans, the universe and its huge objects were already there. In “Little Alchemy 2,” constructing the world and subsequently humanity is necessary to achieve success from a purely human standpoint.
After doubling earthly components to make a planet, combining the planet with fiery elements to make a sun and solar system, and then doubling the solar system once more, you have created a universe.
- Earth + Earth = Land
- Land + Land = Continent
- Continent + Continent = Planet
- Planet + Fire = Sun
- Planet + Sun = Solar System
- Solar System + Solar System = Galaxy
- Galaxy + Galaxy = Galaxy Cluster
- Galaxy Cluster + Galaxy Cluster = Universe
A black screen with stars, planets, comets, galaxies, and other celestial bodies appears, along with the words “EVERYTHING THAT EXISTS,” and the Universe icon appears.
Make a Human Out of Clay
If you want people to be able to grasp the larger picture, you have to make them. Some researchers postulate that the compounds present in clay were crucial to the emergence of sophisticated life on Earth.
Making Clay is the first step in creating a human. Mineral clay is created naturally from a mixture of dirt and tiny rock fragments. If you’re missing any of these components, you can get them by using the following strategies:
- Earth + Water = Mud
- Air + Air = Pressure
- Pressure + Earth = Stone
- Mud + Stone = Clay
When you click on the icon for Clay, a compact brown block appears beside the text “There’s wet dirt and then there’s fine, wet dirt.” To create a human, you must mix the element of Clay with that of Life. If you don’t have Life, you can make it by fusing together the following:
- Fire + Fire = Energy
- Water + Water = Puddle
- Puddle + Puddle = Pond
- Pond + Pond = Lake
- Lake + Lake = Sea
- Earth + Sea = Primordial Soup
- Energy + Primordial Soup = Life
The DNA RNA sign for life shows on the screen with the phrase “It finds a way.” Combine Life with Clay now that you have it. A humanoid figure inside a circle represents the Human emblem, which is accompanied by the phrase “The most dangerous game.”
Provide a Eureka! Moment for the Human Brain.
If you want to make it huge, you’ll have to teach people about it first. You must make the elements for studying the theoretical foundations of knowledge (the Idea element) and the abstract notions (the Philosophy element).
The “aha!” or “light bulb” metaphor compares the moment of insight to the instant when a light bulb first begins to glow, thereby giving rise to the common usage of these terms. In-game, you combine the following to create these components:
- Sun + Energy = Solar Cell
- Solar Cell + Sun = Electricity
- Stone + Air = Sand
- Sand + Fire = Glass
- Electricity + Glass = Light Bulb
- Human + Lightbulb = Idea
The “Light Bulb” icon (a human brain with a light bulb above it) and the text “A thought given weight” will appear once the Light Bulb element has been successfully created. Integrating Human and Conceptual Thinking into Philosophy:
- Human + Idea = Philosophy
The Philosophy icon, a thought bubble, and the words “The study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and the existence of poultry,” appear. When “small” becomes “big,” a white circle with four blue arrows inside it appears on the screen, labelled “When small grows up.”
What Does Big Create in “Little Alchemy 2”?
The concept of huge allows people to conceptualise and articulate a wide range of meaningful ideas in the real world. Without the concept of huge, it would be difficult for humans to distinguish between, say, a pebble and a boulder, a hill and a mountain, a river and an ocean, and a lake and a sea.
It would also be difficult for people to draw parallels between the development of different organisms. For instance, they wouldn’t have a complete picture of how a seed develops into a mature tree.
Common expressions like “the deep blue sea” (meaning to either the ocean or a difficult situation), “the big tent” (the main tent at a circus), and “the largest planet” (Jupiter) would be lost as well.
They wouldn’t be able to conceptualise the immensity of space or the passage of time, let alone visualise a continent in relation to a smaller geographical area or a blizzard in comparison to a minor snowstorm.
In “Little Alchemy 2,” Big can forge any of these components, and with many others based on analogous relationships. The goal is to amass 40 of each element.
- Big + Soil = Land
- Big + Land = Continent
- Big + Pebble = Rock
- Big + Rock = Boulder
- Big + Stone = Boulder
- Big + Boulder = Hill
- Big + Hill = Mountain
- Big + Earth = Mountain
- Big + Puddle = Pond
- Big + Rivulet = Stream
- Big + Stream = River
- Big + Pond = Lake
- Big + Lake = Sea
- Big + Sea = Ocean
- Big + Grass = Plant
- Big + Plant = Tree
- Big + Snow = Blizzard
- Big + Rain = Flood
- Big + Wind = Tornado
- Big + Duckling = Duck
- Big + Cat = Lion
- Big + Bird = Ostrich
- Big + Mouse = Rat
- Big + Birdcage = Aviary
- Big + Car = Bus
- Big + Tent = Circus
- Big + Village = City
- Big + Shovel = Excavator
- Big + Kite = Paraglider
- Big + House = Skyscraper
- Big + Aquarium = Swimming Pool
- Big + Safe = Vault
- Big + Explosion = Atomic Bomb
- Big + Watch = Clock
- Big + Lizard = Dinosaur
- Big + Planet = Jupiter
- Big + Saturn = Jupiter
- Big + Story = Legend
- Big + Fairy Tale = Legend
- Big + Faerie = Elf
- Big + Deity = Giant
- Big + Monster = Giant
- Big + Goblin = Orc
- Big + Ouroboros = Jörmungandr
- Big + Griffin = Ziz
- Big + Phoenix = Ziz
Indeed, the World is Enormous!
Surely at this point you’ve seen how “Little Alchemy 2″‘s elements can be combined to form ever-larger objects. Many of the game’s largest aspects, including Big, have already been discovered. But there’s a long way to go before you’ve amassed them all.
Discovering the Hill element, for instance, reveals the Geyser, Map, Pyramid, Tunnel, Volcano, and Waterfall. When you add Mountain to your search, you’ll be able to find not only Mountains, but also Avalanches, Glaciers, Mount Olympus, Mountain Ranges, and Yetis.
