If Tetris Pieces Could Sing 0

Your Tetris tactics will mislead you; your Lumines strategy will slow you down. Chime, though visually reminiscent of the giants in the puzzle genre, is a game that will take some getting used to. It would be one thing if it were completely different -- all you'd have to do is learn the new ideas and apply them to the game. To excel at Chime, however, you must first unlearn judgments picked up during your 100th hour of Tetris, then begin the regular learning process.Chime is such a patchwork of ...

What a difference 45 minutes makes. 0

My experience with Chime goes as follows:  1. Load Steam. 2. See Chime on the front page. It's $4.99 US. I am intrigued. 3. This looks like if Tetris and Lumines had a bastard child! Purchase. 4. 60% of sales go to charity! D'awwww. 5. Load game, Intriguing music plays. I really enjoy the pinging noise that the menu makes. 6. Start the first level.  O.K. Here is where the actual reviewer-ing happens.  Immediately what impresses me is the music. Catchy and melodious, it's perfect for what I perce...

Excellent product that seems impossible not to recommend. 0

Chime is a pretty humble effort in more ways than one.  The gameplay is simple, it's only five dollars, and it only has five levels.  There's also the impossible-to-ignore fact that the developers have pledged no less than 60% of the game's profits to charity.  I simply can't think of a reason not to recommend this game to anybody.  As I said, the gameplay doesn't take a 300-page manual to explain, but that doesn't mean there's nothing to it.  The basic mechanics are simple enough, but some of t...

Chime is a wonderful idea for gamers, and experimental musicians like Philip Glass. Although considered a minimalist composer, Philip Glass has created music for a broad range of mediums, and with experimental film forms like Godfrey Reggio's "documentaries'. It is obvious that Philip Glass (like all proper composers) has an immense adoration for John Cage, and it is though him that everyone can come to appreciate Chime.   Chime has an almost infinite combination of pieces which can be formed to...

Man can not to talk about Chime and not mention Lumines or Tetris. Chime lends the blocks from Tetris, the grid and the general feel taken from Lumines. Chime has also more similarities to Lumines. Both are music themed puzzle games.  The purpose of Chime is to colour the game grid completely. This is done by using Tetris-type blocks for creating 3x3 shapes. These are called quads. A tracker like bar is sweeping from left to right in sequence with the music. Each time this hits the quads the...

Chime-ing in! Hehe 0

Chime is a pretty good example of the direction I’d like to see games take. A charitable donation is made from spending your money on the game, which isn’t half bad. I could never write a lengthy review about something that barely warrants this much. Having never played Lumines or variations of that, Chime is like starting fresh in my world. A new iteration to some of gaming’s best puzzlers. I really like to play it but that is a direct result of me looking for something small I can space out wi...
