Unchain your brain with Chainz, a challenging new puzzle game of colorful logic. Rotate links to form chains of matching colors. Set up chain reactions and incorporate bonus links for big rewards. Featuring two unique game modes and a special hint feature to help you when you're stuck, this exciting puzzle game is sure to keep you chained to your mouse for hours!
Chainz presents a board full of multi-colored links. Players rotate them to form chains of three or more same-colored links. As the chains disappear, additional links drop down to adding the possibility of new combinations forming that score extra points! Some bonus links multiply points earned while others serve as «wild links» that can be joined with links of any color. As players clear links from the board, a meter on the side of the screen fills; when it hits the top, the level ends and the next challenge begins.
In later levels, players secure high scores by forging chains whose links bear one or more letters in CHAINZ but they also have to contend with the black links, which can’t be rotated but can be included in chains. Those in need of assistance can click the Get Hint! button, but they will lose 2,500 points in the process.
Players can choose to play either normal or timed games. In the former, the game ends when there are no more moves on the board; in the latter, the meter on the side of the screen must be filled before time runs out in each level. In addition, Chainz allows players to switch between window and full-screen modes, keep track of their success on the high score board, and pause or save the action so they can return to it later.
Chainz game features:
- Unique Chain-linking Gameplay
- Normal & Time Attack Modes
- Save your progress for later play
- Valuble Bonus Links
- Bright, Colorful Graphics
- Playful Sound Effects and Soundtrack
Un-chain your brain with CHAINZ! Rotate colorful links to create valuable chains in this challenging puzzle game.
Chainz has a certain appeal to it. The Chainz game is a great break from the every day work load. You do have to keep and eye on the board to know what to turn and when to turn it. One thing that should be added to the next update is to be able to connect in a diagonal manner and also to be able to move or swap links.
You have to reach a goal to advance either timed or untimed. You have great power ups like rainbow links and multipliers to work with. The game moves fairly fast, but in the untimed mode things will slow down. Also you have hints if you need them, but it cost you 2500 points. Speaking of points if you spell out Chainz you get a 25000 point bonus.
