Windows Phone Game Review: Chain Explosion

Chain Explosion is a simple, mildly addictive, fun game for your Windows Phone. Chain Explosion is a game of timing where you create chain reaction from a series of balls bouncing about the screen. The game is challenging enough to keep you interested but unfortunately, there are only twelve levels to Chain Explosion.

Game play is simple. Tap on one of the bouncy balls and they expand. As other balls collide with the expanded ball, they expand as well. Shortly after expanding, the balls explode causing a chain explosion. The challenge is that you can only tap the screen once to start the chain reaction.

The goal of each level is to explode a set number of balls. Reach the goal and you progress to the next level. Fail and you can always give it another try. As you progress up the levels, the required number of balls to explode increases.

Chain Explosion is a nice game but again, just short lived. It takes about five minutes to work your way through the twelve levels and while you can replay the game over and over, the challenge diminishes with each round. As is, Chain Explosion feels more like a trial version. Just enough gaming to get you interested but unfortunately there isn't a full version to buy in this case. Hopefully, more levels will come into play with future updates.

Chain Explosion is a free game for your Windows Phone that you can find here at the Marketplace.
