  • Summary: Arrange pieces, paint the board, make music. Chime Sharp is a sequel to 2009’s Chime, a music puzzle game with an ambient heartbeat. You tessellate shapes to cover a grid, while a beatline reads those shapes as notes. As you cover the board the music builds to a crescendo of your own design.

    With throwback games being all the rage in independent development, many developers have chosen to go the 8/16-bit, pixelated, "ain't this cute?" route to tap into nostalgia while bringing along more modern systems and mechanics. Chime Sharp goes the opposite route; it may look like a modern game, but it feels like an older game in the best ways possible. With its highly accessible gameplay style and a difficult-to-master level of play, Chime Sharp is an easy endorsement for virtually all gamers.

    All in all, Chime Sharp is still a great puzzle game that is simple to play and fun to learn. Those in the zone moments are great, and the constant feel of “just one more try” is here and just as addicting as the previous games. Any puzzle fan out there should add this one to their library.

    Put simply, if you enjoyed Chime, then you’ll love Chime Sharp. Anybody who enjoys a block or tangram-type puzzle would be wise to give it a go.

    Overall, Chime Sharp offers a refreshing new twist on a classic game. Some design flaws hold it back from being a truly excellent game and there are serious accessibility issues. However, excellent soundtrack choices and clever game modes make this game a worthwhile play!

    That leaves me with wondering what is the point of Chime Sharp – especially when much of the game will be locked down and inaccessible to many. Well I’m not really sure to be honest, but then I’ve never really understood the point of Tetris either. If however you want a reasonably decent game that you can just sit down with, for ten minutes at a time, drawing off the positive, fast-flowing vibe it brings, then you’re in luck.

    Puzzles genre have a new member. Chime Sharp wants to contribute new features in the genre with a minimalistic proposal in the visual section, but with a lot of game modes among which it is difficult not to find one that suits your tastes.
