since everyone was bitching about it - i released a version of Chain Rxn for FREE on the iPhone / iPod Touch. it has the identical scoring and gameplay as the original facebook version.. granted, Danny Miller did create the game and deserves credit - but, now there is a free version.

PS: for those who want to troll and post 1 star reviews; go play in your own backyard, boomshine and chain rxn are two different games based on similar concepts; there wasn't a decent copy of chain rxn, so i wrote my own.

it's a freebie with ZERO ADVERTISING at all in it; so, we are not making any money by releasing this game (in fact, it has been a headache to get through the apple approval process).. enjoy it for free. sometimes, things should be free.. thousands of people are already enjoying it.

EDIT: Mobile 1UP has no affiliation with Danny Miller nor the developers of the Chain Rxn FaceBook game.

Well yeah, Missile Command obviously... but I'm sure back in the day there were clones of Missile Command going around which were even more similar to Boomshine than that was.

i played boomshine; after playing chain rxn on facebook - it lacked the addictability that chain rxn had. kudo's to daniel tho, interesting idea, but surely not 100% original. it is obvious people like both versions; each to their own.. now a faithful, reproduction exists..

some say i should have charged for it :P it took me around 20 hours to write - so, i cannot justify the time/effort to charge for it.

Boomshine is the original and Chain Rxn is a rip-off clone with better scoring mechanics. Most rip-off cloners at least get some permission, where as the folks that "created" Chain Rxn did not. The game in this thread is not available, probably because the official Chain Rxn Facebook app is now available as an iPhone app "Chain Rxn Zwigglers" for $1.99

I refuse to support these criminals.

High horse much. Games get cloned about a million times a day. So someone wanted to play a fun game on another platform, there wasn't one so he made one and released it for free, big deal. OH NOES! He must be a billionaire by now with all these stolen ideas he's got!

You said it yourself, the scoring was better. It was an improvement, that's how the world works, we take old ideas and expand on them to make them better. Now we're stuck paying $1.99 for a port of a free flash game. Boomshine wasn't totally original in the first place anyway.

It's #40 in the Top Paid Apps section

Two guys walked into a bar. You think they would've seen it or something.
