Chime is a Rhythmaction game available on the 360.

Chime is a Rhythmaction game. Rhythm action games combine the enjoyment that comes from creating music with the challenge of video game scoring. The player is usually tasked with dancing on a mat, tapping a touch screen, pressing a button, singing into a mic or strumming a fake guitar controller in time with the music.


We have our reporters and community keeping an eye on Chime for you, and we'll keep you up to date with the latest developments as they happen.


Considered Gamer review Mon, 15 Mar 2010

Chime 360 is a breif bright experience and similar to Lumines. I found it a wonderfully calming experience - a perfect respite from the busy modern life. But not only this because Chime benefits children's charities across the world courtesy of OneBigGame.

Initially I found Chime a little confusing to play which became slightly embarrassing when I realised just how simple the game's concept actually was. There's a grid on screen in which various shapes must be placed to create larger quads in order to eventually fill the board. At the same time a beat bar goes across the screen which co-ordinates the musical beat with the placement of the various quads making each track sound different on every play. Once over 50% of the board is filled, the next level is unlocked to play. Chime offers a timed mode and a free play mode which I found the most relaxing of the two.

Family Gamer review Mon, 08 Feb 2010

Chime's mix of music and puzzling strikes a Tetris shaped chord in a sea of action packed musical games and pledges 60% of profits to good causes. It's a great 360 XBLA game, even without the good works.

If truth be told, I've never been a fan of Guitar Hero and the world of musical games. Partially because I can actually play the guitar and find Guitar Hero to be wrong. It's always, like my drummer tells me when I thrash away at his kit, behind the beat. And that doesn't sit well with my hand's muscle memory. But with Guitar Hero I can at least see the appeal - I have spent many hours in my youth playing air guitar in my bedroom, and this game would have been manna from heaven to the 13-year-old me.
