| January 1, 2012 | 10 Replies

Happy New Year again! You may have had a heavy new year celebration so let’s have a light, yet still fun lumiappaday. This has been on every platform in one iteration or another, it’s the simple yet addictive chain reaction style game.

Bunch of particles on the screen running and bouncing off walls, pop one at the precise point that you think other particles can crash into it, hence chain reaction. You don’t need any more info than that.

Fun game, simple and free. 🙂
