Chime was a much-loved music puzzle game on Xbox Live Arcade, PC and PS3. What happens if you file away the rusty edges?
New music + new modes + new visuals = CHIME SHARP.

Place pieces, paint the board, make music. Chime Sharp is an sequel to 2009's Chime, a music puzzle game with an addictive, 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 beautiful crescendo of your own design. The only way to discover Chime is to play it, but if you want a glimpse, consider what it might feel like to cross Tetris, a music sequencer and a hypnotic dream about your favourite pop song.

Chime Sharp takes Chime's classic dynamic and updates it for 2015. The core rules are the same but the aesthetic is clean and modern and the game's soundtrack has been completely refreshed. With fifteen new levels, experimental modes, new-era connectivity and sharper ways to play, Chime's finally back -- and it wants to be your new favourite mixtape.

Chime Sharp reviews and comments

Tetrominos a little different from those of Tetris, why not, but the most painful is the legibility of the grid, it's the big mess! Color shades were used instead of free colors. And then nothing is explained, no Tuto mode, a selection of levels that starts with community creations?! With a very austere entrance it leaves a taste to not return to it.

Product received for free the job of building the levels must be colossal, there is no doubt... But here, the player is unfair, he always wants more. Chime sharp is a very good musical game, with the undeniable relaxing effect and the clever game system, but it's too fast to turn around. It is really fun and it is a joy to discover the playlist... but once it's crossed, not sure if it's coming back. The baby of chilled mouse, Twistplay, Ste Curran and Zoe mode (whew!) is, like the first chime, absolutely delightful, but also very short. It is nevertheless a musical experience to advise warmly!

Unfortunately, after playing more than 20 hours the first Chime and now playing the second I must say that something was lost in the transition. Maybe It's just that these new tunes I don't like, but I can't find that feeling of addiction I found in the first one. The game is The same, now with more songs, but I just do not like. I Even started playing the first Chime again and I still feel that little magic in their songs. The game is bad? No. It Retains The Mécanicas of the first and does not innovate in another section. My recommendation is that you look for some of the tunes in the game and listen to them before you buy them. In the next link you can find the names of the songs. http://steamcommunity.com/app/326520/discussions/0/359543951714333829/

Chime sharp is a musical puzzle game this is the sequel to the chime game released in 2010 on Xbox 360. You've never had an Xbox 360, don't worry, nor do I know anyone who owns one. To wonder if it is not an urban legend! Accompanied by musics (obviously, a game without music... We hesitate and rightly), you must cover as quickly as possible the surface of the terrain on which you play. The criticism does not seem very convincing but, I must say that the game did not make me an excellent impression, I greatly remained on my hunger with many questions. I tell myself that the game is not made for me and that's why I did not hang... but, that's not why it is bad, I reassure you, every game has its audience and there I am not the type player of chime sharp. Buy or not to buy? Wait for the balances! ;) http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=736704621 to read all of my impressions on chime sharp. [www.graal.fr]
