Excerpt: One of the coolest things about Chime on the Xbox 360 (editor: Xbox Live) is more than 60 percent of the purchase price of Chime will be donated to children's charities around the world, helping those who need it the most. This kind of a move from developer Zoe Mode, and publisher Valcon Games is fantastic. It certainly grabs the attention of media outlets like Family Friendly Gaming.
Conclusion: Chime is exactly the sort of game that XBLA thrives upon. It is a quick in, quick out game with flashing lights, fluorescent colors, and simple rules. It is, in short, a casual game. That isn’t a crime, though. It hits the mark in all of the areas that count for the genre, and in the case of sound and raw addictiveness, knocks it out of the park.
Summary: " Chime " is a fantastic game, and easily worth twice the price. It sits as one of the best puzzle games I have played in recent times, just beaten to the post by Lumines . It beggars belief that OneBigGame not only put it out at such a low price, but also are to give the profit to charity.
Conclusion: Chime does a good job of providing a fun and enjoyable experience that may not have a ton of music to choose from, but it offers enough to make the 400 Microsoft points ($5 US) a worthy expense when most of that cost will be going to charity.
