Chains has some annoying graphics bugs. Recently I alt+tab'd the game and the monitor went black and started to search for the analog/digital signal... without success. Another alt+tab didn't fix the issue so I had to use task manager. Also with some resolution options the games frame rate is unlimited and produces coil whine.

But gameplay-wise it's not a bad puzzler and has different challenges. So despite those aforementioned bugs (not a constant issue) I would still recommend it, just not for the asking price of 5 €. Wait for a sale.

Looking through my backlog of games and found this gem. I really enjoyed the puzzles. I recommend turning the music off and playing some chill music of your own instead. I found it extremely relaxing and enjoyable.

Product received for free
TECHNICALLY, I received this for free because I bought 10 random Steam keys on (insert website about buying things cheaper here) and this actually alright game happened to be within the 10. However, I would value this at around $2 maybe? If you can get it with a coupon or on sale, definitely do it.

Opinion: Really nice "match 3 in a line" game with simple mechanics and nice challenges. The physics actually got my attention; the balls act like you would expect them to.

8/10 or 9/10

Note: Game is on sale at the time of this review, so get it =)

A nice take on bejeweled and other matching games, Objects are different sizes and keep moving and the containers are different shapes and have different rules. Didn't get very far, but fun action puzzle game.

This is one of those games that takes a fairly simple premise and expands it into a short but challenging puzzle game with a surprising amount of depth.

Gameplay is simple: connect dots of the same color to make them disappear, satisfy an objective unique to a given level to advance. What's impressive is how many different objectives 2DEngine.com came up with using a limited range of tools. Ranging from simple objectives such as get a high score to more complicated objectives such as keep a stream with multiple choke points flowing for 5 minutes.

The aesthetic is simple, colored dots and silhouette containers.That and the simplistic menu design are reminiscent of Flash games, but it doesn't have much impact on the game. Music's not bad, it seems to get louder when you get closer to failing an objective, but not much to write home about.

Overall, it's a decent game, there's a couple hours of quality gameplay, maybe a little more if you're into score attack.

20 levels of decent puzzling, bubble popping goodness. Doesn't last long though and the asking price is a little steep, but it's a nicely crafted game with some interesting challenges.

It does require a certain balance of luck and thought though, which is a little frustrating sometimes as on some levels, there is literally NOTHING you can do to stop yourself from losing the level simply because of how the bubbles fall.

Still fun though. I do recommend, at a lower price.

I get the feeling it's supposed to be a fun, relaxing game, but some of the levels go against that feeling. Some of them are frustrating and rely purely on luck, RNG, and where the balls fall rather than any sort of critical thinking on your part. I'd say out of the 20, you'll have trouble with two or three, but the rest should be enjoyable.

Get it on sale if you want a puzzle game you can sit, think a bit, and click. But I cannot recommend it at the regular asking price.

"Chains" is a simple and short color-matching puzzle game.

It features 20 levels which offer enough variety between themselves. Some of them require thinking, but mostly they just test your speed and reflexes. Once you finish them, that's it. You're done. OK, you've got Hard mode which ups the difficulty a bit, but frankly, this wasn't enough to keep me from going through them once again.

The only reason for which I can recommend this game at its regular price, and in fact I do, is that you get the fantastic soundtrack by Silence bundled with it (look inside the installation folder). On the 90% off sale, pick it up regardless.

A fun little game to play if you're bored.

Match up the same consecutive colours in rows of 3 or more. The first level is basic, but the next levels makes you do different tasks with chain reactions making it fun and interesting.

Gameplay is pretty fun and the music is really good, especially the menu music which sounds like PAYDAY.

6/10

テトリスで4段消しの準備が出来たのにテトリス棒(■■■■)が全然出て来なくてイライラしたことってありませんか?
このゲームはテトリスでたとえるなら「3分以内に4段消しをしろ」というステージで
テトリス棒(■■■■)がまったく出てこない!といったことがちょくちょく起こるゲームです

このたとえで「理不尽なクソゲーだな」と思った人は
セールで激安になっていても買わないことをオススメします

逆にこのたとえで
「やりがいのありそうな運ゲーだ!」「こんなクソゲーを待っていた!」
と思った人は是非購入することをオススメします

English reveiw below :)

98円以上での購入は、絶対におすすめできません。
98円は同梱のサントラに金払ったと思ったほうがいいでしょう。

遊べないわけではありません。
セール中98円で購入しましたが、中盤までは結構楽しめました。
シンプルなルールで、ちょっとクリア条件やステージ構成で味付けして
いろいろな工夫やアイディアを感じることができたのは
このゲームを買って素直に良かったと思える点です。

ただし、それを完全に上回るほど残念・不快極まるところが以下。

・一部の背景が、眼球が強く痛むほど異常な色合いをしている
・スキルではなく運によりクリア不可能な展開になる
 パズルであるにも関わらず、「玉の出が悪い」ので失敗を強いられる

 例を挙げると、「●個以上こぼさずに●個消せ」と言われているのに
 ランダムな色パターンとあと1cm届かない判定、物理計算で
 玉を消しきれず必ずこぼさざるを得ない配置ばっかり発生する。

ただただ残念です。
Web上で公開されるフリーのFLASHゲームなら高評価も納得ですが、
終盤までプレイした今となっては……
+評価の全てが悪質なサクラにすら見えます。

(中盤までは楽しめるので、ほとんどプレイせずにプラスしたのでしょう)


498円はボッタクリです。
終盤まで進行することは、あなたの健康を害し心を乱します。
1時間ほど、だいたい6割くらいまで進めてアンインストールしてください。


NO RECOMMEND PAYING THIS MORE THAN $1.
OR PAY FOR ITS MUSIC TRACKS (soundtrack in folder!)

This game contains 20 stages.
First 10 stages will make you fun and happy to play!
You'll have unique experiences around this puzzle. I'm sure.

BUT, LATTER 10 STAGES WILL KILL YOU.

Some of middle stages are too vivid to see,
hurting your eyes and disrupt playing seriously.

And last 5 stages, THE WORST THINGS OF THIS GAME,
all you need is LUCK, NOT BRAIN,
you'll FORCED TO RESTART or FAIL.
(ex. the game asked you "clear ** before you drop ** balls".
it's simple. it's ok. you try....and failed.
they asked you clear all balls, but there're balls you can't!
no way but press restart. and again. again. again. again.)
   *because of its random colors pattern and physics.
you can do NOTHING but pray... not play :(

ARE THESE REALLY PUZZLE?

I think all thums up reviews are NOT lie.
They play first 10 stages and they are fun. it's true.
Musics and Sounds are good. it's true. Soundtrack within. great.

一時期流行った"物理演算でオブジェクトが動くタイプ"のもの。似たようなものがフラッシュゲームにありました。
同じ色を3つ以上繋ぐと消えるのが基本ルールでステージごとに一度に30個消せだの一個も下に落とすななどなど、追加のルールがあります。

From the makers of "Obulis" (also reviewed by me) comes this nice physics engine game. First: The game "Chains" is no big deal. That means the game mechanics are quite simple and the graphics are flatten. But what it makes special is the relaxing chillout soundtrack in the background. Never felt so comfortable in a game.

The levels are generally easy. You have to link the same colored bubbles to chains, as longer as better. Sometimes there are pretty inventive modes like calculation numbers inside the bubbles to a balance or to deny downfalling bubbles to block a tube by upchaining and eliminate them. There's all kind of challenge and entertainment you can expect from a good puzzle game.
Take a -90% Coupon and pay only 40 Cent to tryout all the great 20 levels.

Fun little puzzle game that isn't worth the asking price.

Chains reminded me of something you'd play for free on Kongregate or Newgrounds. It has a fun core mechanic (linking chains of circles to make them dissapear) that they mix up and use in innovative ways with each level. The music is really good and fits the game perfectly. The graphics are what you would expect from this sort of game. Most people should be able to beat all 20 levels in 2 hours or so.

I'm not recommending this because it is over priced but if you can get it for $0.50 - $1 then it is definitly worth checking out.

Chains is a game about linking 3+ bubbles of the same colour. It features 20 puzzles, each different from one another. Rules, objectives, layout change from one puzzle to the next, sometimes even the gravity is modified.

Basically though there are two types: puzzles that make you think a little, and puzzles where you have to act fast. Unfortunately there is much more of the "act fast" ones. When I got this game I thought it will be relaxing & laid-back. It wasn't most of the time. Chains require focus, reflex and speed, which makes it rather tense experience, stressful even. Hey, I'm old ^^>

I finished the game, although that turned out to be a test of patience. The progress I made was wiped a couple of times or rolled back (I had severe saving issues for some reason), so I was forced to repeat each puzzle at least a couple of times. Without all that repetition the game is very short.

I'm recommending this because "on fence" or "so-so" is not an option. Plus Chains isn't bad, so thumbs down would be unfair. Also, I like the music/ambiance, the art style/ design choice and the variety. I appreciate each puzzle being different (even though not my speed), as I'm often tired with games that have hundreds of carbon copy puzzles with barely any modifications. Ideas for some puzzles/ level design are neat as well :)

Pros:
- No learning curve at all: Just 'link' the bubbles.
- Creative: The levels are quite different from each other, except for 2 almost identical levels where one is required to 'link' a certain number of bubbles (only this 'number' changes).
-The music is relaxing, as mentioned in other reviews.

Cons:
- The game itself is not relaxing at all!
- More often than not, there is a countdown timer, making one either rush or fail.
- Too much depends on luck, and not on one's play style -- especially on higher difficulties.

Neutral:
- Each level unlocks the next.

Verdict:
- Fun for 1-2 times, possibly to see different difficulties. However, I definitely would not pay full price (£3.99 at the moment) for this game (got it 90% off).

Some of the challenges require far to much luck (like flipper) and in others (like stream) are too vage on how they are scoring you. On the other hand some of the challenges are extreamly easy and are passed on the first attempt. There are a couple of good puzzles but they are so few it doesn't make up for the downside of this game.

Buy? Yes. It's a SURPRISINGLY and REFRESHINGLY GOOD match 3 (or more) physics puzzler. Normally, I'd shy away from either of those genre's, but it was a small download thanks to the Indie Royale Prarie Dog bundle. The main mechanic is linking adjacent, like colored orbs together in chains of 3 or more. Left click to link, right click to cancel - those are your controls. The goal widely varies from level to level - the first level requires you to just make enough chains, the next requires to continue making chains on a weight based door before it becomes too heavy with constantly falling orbs. One level requires you to keep a stream of orbs falling while preventing clogs in a "pipe" level, another has you try to make a big chain as orbs fly from the edges of the screen to the center based on gravity. Another has you link different sized orbs that are worth points relative to their size, and you have to make a chain with the exact score. It's surprisingly clever and very enjoyable with a great soundtrack (A link to the artist's page is on the game's site). The cheap gradient effect of the orbs kinda clash with the crisp, PixelJunk-esq background graphics (which look good IMO), but it's not the worst thing in the world. I got through half of the game in about 30 minutes, so you can probably beat the game in a couple hours, unless you get stuck (I'm stuck on Level 11). A very neat title that I'm glad that I found.

Chains offers a relaxing puzzle experience, but not much else.

Pros: Music, Graphics
Cons: Gameplay, Luck, Value

Originally released in 2008, Chains' twenty puzzles each give a slightly different challenge. The music provides a nearly perfect atmostphere for relaxation and the graphics are simple and easy to understand.

However, the gameplay itself is rather boring with wildly varying difficulties. Some levels require little to no thought while others require a nearly perfect combination of RNG to win. But the biggest strike against Chains is that many other games offer the same casual, puzzle experience for free.

Chains simply doesn't stand out enough among other free games.

Unless I'm remembering wrong, there's nothing especially worthwhile here. I finished it with under 2 hours of playtime and the game retails at $5. I don't think I'd recommend playing this unless you get it in a bundle.

This game is infuriating. When played on Normal some levels are near impossible, yet become almost laughably simple on Easy. I wish there was more middle ground. I also experienced some lag/freezing when clearing bubbles that shoud not have happened given my processor/graphics. The one good thing I can say about it is that it has an amazing soundtrack.
