QUALITY
 

CHIMES - THE GAME is a unique puzzle game consisting of five stationary colored circles that emit shockwaves when tapped. When these shockwaves hit smaller floating spheres of the same color, the spheres disappear. The goal is to eliminate all spheres before they disappear off-screen by using the fewest number of taps. The difficulty ramps up quickly when multi-colored spheres are introduced, making precise timing essential. If you tap two circles in a row, their shockwaves combine into multi-colored waves which can then eliminate the multicolored spheres. Lackluster visuals means there isn't as much satisfaction in persevering through the difficulty levels. For an equally challenging and much prettier puzzle game, try Osmos.
