    Absolutely love it! The music is great especially how the song changes depending on how well you are going. Could not believe it was only 400 point!!

    An absolutely AMAZING game. Strongly recommended. Not only cheap (Approx. £6) but 60% will go to charity. It is addictive, fun, and well worth checking out. And, on top of all that, you get 50G JUST for buying the game!

    A friend recommended this game and it is *really* good. Part Lumines, part Tetris, it also channels REZ inasmuch as how you play affects how it sounds (always very cool, imo) and those Bit Generation games on the GBA. Looking really simple initially, it's actually quite deep, as you can either go for grid coverage or highscore (or both, if you're really good.

Looking really simple initially, it's actually quite deep, as you can either go for grid coverage or highscore (or both, if you're really good. I'm still struggling). most of all, it's very chill / cool to play. possibly the best 400 points I've spent in the XBLA marketplace since I got my 360. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Expand

    This game is fantastic! Here's to hoping for some DLC, because where it stands the 5 included levels are not enough. Other than that, pitch perfect. Kudos for including Philip Roth...Cliff Martinez would be another great choice (Solaris).

    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

    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.

    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.
