With over 160,000 download on iOS, Chip Chain is a free download (with optional in app purchases) which has the classic ingredients for a successful game - it's easy to pick up but the gameplay mechanic means there's lots to master.
Each day, 2 of 4 unique modes are available to play and with them changing daily it adds a bit of variety to the game without requiring you to make a purchase. You either earn gems by playing or buy gems to unlock them all.
The modes are "TIMED - Time is running out: quickly place your chips before it’s too late.", "SHORT – Do your best with 40 chips: place them with care and take your time!", "LONG - Unlimited chips, but be careful not to stack yourself into a corner." and "DAILY - Compete against friends to see who can rack up the most points using the same chips. A new board every day!".
Chip Chain uses the ScoreLoop system (which I didn't realise is part of RIM!).
It's a nice little game and a welcome break for me from the frustration of Candy Crush Saga. Give it a try by downloading from the Play Store.
