Acclaimed indie puzzler SpaceChem is coming to the iPad, developer Zachtronics Industries has announced.

SpaceChem Mobile will be priced at $5.99/£3.99 and is scheduled to be released on October 1.

The iPad version is a port of the original PC game, and includes the campaign and player-created ResearchNet puzzles. It lacks the boss battles and storyline found in the PC version, however.

"The satisfaction derived from finishing each individual circuit is virtually unmatched," wrote VideoGamer as it detailed ten of the best indie games on PC earlier in the year.
