In Silent Chain, you touch the enemies without touching their spikes to bind them to yourself. The more connections you have the more points you get when you connect or kill another. You can shoot the enemies too, which will make your mass decrease faster.

Move - Arrows
Shoot - Z
Gather - X

Bloody hell! I'm in awe. How does he do it?

This is actually one of his best, too. Laid back, sedate, even. It's probably the most original game he's made so far, conceptually.

Also, my highscore is currently first at 429 [lol]. Beat that, Tim :D

Meh, it's mostly a patience tester, a lot like MSoids was. If the game does have some kind of difficulty scaling over time, it's either way too slow or way too random.

I mean, there is an initial difficulty curve where you learn how to play that game, but once you get good enough, that gets you to about 500 point in either game. After that, it seems rather random when I die, which makes me believe that after a point, skill is less of a factor in your score, and luck takes over.

So both games are "patience testers" because to get a good score, you have to play either quite a few times before you get lucky enough to get a highscore (once your skill level has gotten to that point).

Ahhh, Tim. Touché.

I finally beat yours and zmann's score, with 2000+, no less, and eagerly went to check the highscores, looking foward to seeing my name in that no. 1 place.

Only to find that you had beaten it.

I wanted to heed the call of nature so badly at that time - glad I held on for another thirty seconds. :D

Still, I'm sure someone will beat that score soon. ;)
