App description: Introducing Chain Pattern, prequel to Chain Link Pro (144 reviews with a 4 star average and was featured under Apple's "Hot New Games", "What's Hot" and "New and Noteworthy" sections in iTunes).

Chain Pattern has one simple rule - match the pattern of shapes shown on the screen by touch and dragging various shapes into a matching pattern. Touching each shape will link them together forming a chain that fluidly follows your finger. As you match and score with each pattern, a new pattern quickly appears to keep the action going. The patterns start out simple with three shapes of the same color but will eventually grow to six shape patterns of a mix of all shapes and colors. Collect various power-ups to maximize your score.

THREE UNIQUE GAME MODES
Arcade game mode - Shapes fly across the screen and you need to match them in the same order as the pattern.
Static game mode - Shapes remain stationary and become obstacles to pattern making. Clear the screen by chaining around the maze of shapes without getting too close.
Memory game mode - The pattern appears briefly and you need to remember the right order to arrange the shapes. A hint system will flash the next part of the pattern if you get stuck.

Additionally, each mode offers an easy level without a time limit and you can make up to three mistakes before the game ends. The normal level is a race against the clock to create patterns that will add additional play time and one mistake will end the game. There is also the Hyper Chain level where you can make unlimited mistakes but you only have 60 seconds to score as high as possible.

ONLINE FEATURES
Chain Pattern includes an incredibly rich online experience for your competitive nature that is above and beyond what most mobile games offer today. Taking full advantage of the OpenFeint online network, you can send challenges to your friends to beat your high score, post major game events to facebook and twitter and receive in-game notices when you break a worldwide top score. Also contains online leaderboards, weekly leaderboards for Hyper Chain and over 20 achievements.

This game is good. Same style. But I think I prefer Chain Link Pro better. I love how you can flick the things into the hole and I just like that game better. Would definitely grab this for a buck if you liked CLP though

I just watched my brother play (unbroken). Seems like a lot of fun, but will probably have to steal his iPhone in a bit to get my hands on the game to get a feel for it.

Picture Chain Link Pro, with no vortex in the middle to shoot. At the top there is a pattern you have to recreate with your chain. If you get the wrong order, you're dead. Bottom left corner is a kind of circle showing your progress as you move through the levels. This game definitely brings a challenge. There are still some power ups, but not as many as in CLP

I have to question the practice of releasing the same game three times with little but a modified ruleset being the difference.

That said, this is a nice game. As was the one before it. And probably (I haven't picked that one up) the one before that too. "Been there, done that" though, was my main impression while playing.

Serious bug alert: I got a call while playing and upon resuming the game there was no sound. Restarting the app didn't help and I actually had to power down and restart my device for the sound to work again.
