You can see where this is going...

The red and blue waldos are about to cross over bonder tiles with a BOND + command on the bonder near the bottom left of the screen.

The problem is nothing seems to bond! Thinking it may be a bug, I've tried restarting the game and rejiggering the red path to drop the carbon atom onto the bonder, perform BOND +, then grab it again to no avail. I've also tried sending the blue waldo over a BOND + command without success. Searches online have found a couple other people in similar situations with no apparent resolution.

I love this game, but this is aggravating! Thanks for your help!

Huh. That looks like it SHOULD bond. – Frank Aug 28 '12 at 1:37
Perhaps the game is mistakenly enforcing a bond limit? Not sure. Looks like it should work. – Steve V. Aug 28 '12 at 1:51
Have you tried swapping the bonders? The bonders themselves are numbered internally to fire in a particular order, though in theory that shouldn't affect this setup you could still try it to see what happens – Private Pansy Aug 28 '12 at 2:03
@YiJiang, yes, I tried shuffling the bonders. No luck. – Lee Fastenau Aug 28 '12 at 3:08

This is a Disassembly Reactor; you can tell because the bonders have a small '-' symbol instead of the typical '±' symbol. The bonders in this reactor can only break bonds, not create them.

I guess I will accept the game author's solution. :) Thank you so much! (And thanks for an amazingly addictive and smart game.) – Lee Fastenau Aug 28 '12 at 4:24
