A little difference in strength of forces does not make much difference (atoms would be a little smaller or bigger, so what?).

No, Shroedinger equation can not be different. What can be different is the value of fundamental constants h, c and G, or the number of unfolded dimensions of space (say, 4 instead of 3). Then the solutions of Shr. eq. will be different. Some particles (like electron) can not exist in 4-dimensions, so that Universe should be completely different. But this still does not mean that complex (or not-so-complex) self-reproducing systems can not exist in such Universe. If Shr. eq. in 4 dimensions with that particular values of h and c does have the solution which allows such complex systems to exist, then you may label these systems of particles as "forms of life".
