    Very fun game and worth the small price. The music is good - really enjoyed playing the game with 2 or 3 of the 5 songs. The others are not as good but ok. Some players may not be as much a fan of the music however, and if like many other players, you play the game for extended periods of time, the repetition of the music may get annoying.

    It is very easy to play this game for hours
    on end thinking you've only played an hour or two, when actually it's been 4-5 hours. Expand

    At first this game seemed to have potential. But I have to say it's very disappointing. Not only are the controls a bit clunky and unresponsive, but the game's mechanics, scoring system and concept are not immediately obvious. It's got unnecessarily features and flashy graphics; not to mention the truly uninspiring "level" (if you can call it that) design. The soundtrack is also horrible; basically gave a new born baby a Xylophone to play with and recorded it. Any arcade game which requires a tutorial to explain what everything is on screen, what the aim of the game is etc. is pretty bad. But this is just embarrassing, because it's a game which should be extremely fast-paced, straightforward and addicting to play over and over yet it fails miserably in all departments other than ambition. I can credit it for trying to make a mindlessly boring game like Tetris into something more appealing...which it also fails at. Expand

    Chime is easy to recommend. It's cheap, it'll keep you amused for hours, and the $5 you spend goes to charity.
  2. It manages to take inspiration from known quantities in the puzzle and rhythm genres to create something that feels distinctive and, more importantly, is a lot of fun. That the bulk of your money is going to charity is a feel-good bonus for a game that deserves your time regardless.
  3. A lack of depth doesn't stop Chime from quietly turning its own genre on its head either. Zoë Mode's game shows what can happen when you give up destruction in favour of creation, and exchange tension for a kind of dreamy calm.
