About

A Zoë Mode production for the video game charity initiative OneBigGame, Chime pits gamers against the melody in an all-new puzzle experience. Place blocks against the clock, complete solid quads and try to cover the whole playing surface, all the while remixing and embellishing pieces by musicians from across the planet. And you get to feel good about yourself, too: The console version of Chime was originally developed for OneBigGame with all the developer’s royalties going to Charity for sales up to June 2010, and Zoe Mode will continue to donate a proportion of its royalties (equivalent to 5% of purchase price) for sales of the Steam version. OneBigGame always aims to donate a minimum of 80% of all donations to its charity partners Save the Children and the Starlight Children's foundation.

Key features:

  • Puzzle: Rotate and place shapes to form solid quads and fill up the grid before the time runs out
  • Listen: Chime features music by Moby, Paul Hartnoll (Orbital), and more
  • Remix: Fill the grid to alter the track loop, place pieces to play notes, and create quads to trigger a range of song samples
  • Replay: Reset the grid by reaching 100% and continue playing and beat your high score
  • Experience: Each of the six unique levels is made up of its own music, grid, and shape sets, including the new Portal-inspired sixth level: “Still Alive”.
  • Free-play mode: Choose between three different levels of difficulty or just play for the sake of making music with no time pressure

      The Game I have now some Years and have never regretted buying. Always good for a quick Lap, as the Design and Music Selection just never get boring. Simple: Awesome! :)

      There is something almost meditative about this Tetris variation. Beautiful Music and with the different Levels of difficulty also something to play again and again. The one Euro was really well invested:)

      What to say... at the base, just bought to get one of the successes of the steam contest of December. The game proved to be very pleasant and relaxing, while having a good dose of challenge. It would be a shame to be missing at this price.

      A good puzzle game my time, it brings together just about every quality I expect from a game of the genre. Namely: an OST posed and pleasant, a good balance between reflex and reflection, a ribambelle of fashion with all their interest,... and there is not much else to add to advise you to play there.

      Very flasky Cool tetras Variant, which has very nice music, and also incorporates this into the Game. In addition, it has succeeded visually real. Purist Yet very stylish. The game remains the Way you want it. Either, you try to make High Scores without End, or daddly a Round.

      Very nice Atmosphere, although I didn't like some Songs, but that depends on your own Taste anyway. The Gameplay itself is not as simple as it seems. That the "Quads" "harden" brings Pace to the otherwise rather "lame" songs. However, this is happening far too quickly to me, which allows me to score fewer Points.

      Cheap at all. A kind of Tetra on a plateau that modifies the sounds as the pose progresses. The basic background music is composed by people more or less known according to the songs like Moby. I just regret the lack of title that makes it not often played back. In any case when you have like 10 mins to kill it's nice to get a part because simple and effective.

      Simple puzzle game inspired by Tetra or Lumines (to which it borrows the tempo bar) in appearance, chime is actually much more than that. True blessing for any music lover, the game offers you to form blocks of 3x3 squares minimum to raise your score, and above all, fill the game grid, condition necessary for progression; the rhythm of the music. If chime is not necessarily seductive aesthetically, his hypnotic soundtrack of very good taste is undeniably worth the detour. Special mention for the music of the last level, undeniable proof of the good taste of the developers, which justifies the purchase of the game on its own. Sold in addition at a small price, chime really deserves your attention!
