  • App Store Info


•• Top 100 Arcade/Action iPad game for two straight months in all countries! ••

•• iPhone version is featured under Apple's "Hot New Games", "What's Hot" and "New and Noteworthy" sections in iTunes •• HD graphics, control multiple chains, and more space for longer chains exclusive to the iPad version! This high adrenaline touch and drag action game has four unique game modes that offers four different gaming experiences for one low price!

• HD graphics! Beautiful backgrounds. Shapes and powerups are now larger to take advantage of the HD graphics.
• More space! More room to create longer chains that weren't possible with the iPhone.
• Control two chains at once! You now have even more control over the action.
• Gameplay optimized for relaxed iPad use! Kick back in your chair, put your legs up and play the game in your lap for the best playing experience.

With no complex controls to learn or buttons to press, CHAIN LINK HD only requires one finger to play. Touch and drag an assortment of shapes across the screen to chain them with other similar shapes and send them into the pulsating vortex to score. The longer the chain the more points awarded but long chains risk colliding with foreign shapes which will destroy the chain and potentially end the game. With four degrees of difficulty, players of any age can enjoy this game.

There are 17 power-ups a chain can collect on contact to ensure survivability and maximize points, ranging from miniature chains to multi-colored chains to metamorphosis to chain invincibility.

• Hyper Chain - Score as high as possible in 60 seconds.
• Timed game mode - Race against the clock to earn enough points to add additional play time. Collisions subtract points but don't end the game.
• Arcade game mode - Shapes fly across the screen and any collision will end the game. Offers leisurely play with no time limits.
• Static game mode - Shapes are created on a static grid and don't move. Clear the screen by chaining around the maze of other colorful shapes without getting too close. This mode gives the player three lives so one mistake won't end the game.

Competitive nature is built into the game! Send in-game challenges to your friends. Winning results can be posted to facebook and twitter to gloat to your friends. You also get real time notices as you beat high scores and climb the ranks of the global leaderboards that can optionally be posted to facebook and twitter. Plus over 40 leader boards and 30 achievements.

Earn and complete quests for extra points and unlock new power-ups.

The chain will react based on how fast or slow you move your finger.

There are three ways to earn additional points:

• Speedster - Make a chain fast. The first one is a 2x bonus but if you do more speed chains within a short period of time then the multiplier increases.
• Repeater - Score repeated times with the same type of chain.
• Traveler - You can also try an optional flick to send the chain flying towards the vortex for extra points. The further away you are from the vortex when you flick, the higher the score.


• Offers easy, medium and hard degrees of difficulty! A special hardcore mode is offered for players who have mastered the art of chaining.

• A rich 3D sound experience when using headphones.

• High production value with beautiful graphics, advanced particle effects and fluid chain movement.

• Designed exclusively to take advantage of touch screen devices so controlling the game feels natural.

• Listen to your own music from your media library as you play.

• Save and restore your game at any time.
