OverviewOverview

Chime is a block-dropping music puzzle game where you control a single shape to move, rotate, and then place it onto a grid. A beatline moves across the grid in time with the music, setting off events when it hits placed shapes.

As you place the shapes in relation to the music, you can form solid blocks of 3x3 or more that trigger different musical sounds. The larger the group the higher the score. Your aim is to gain 100% coverage with this blocks, earning points as you go.

Timed Mode pits the player against the clock, with three different levels of difficulty based on time limit. Free Mode acts as a very basic sequencer. There is no time limit and the player is able to place shapes at their leisure to create different sounds and alter the music as they see fit.
