Today Numbers Reaction 2 is released. Go check it out :-)


Numbers Reaction is my take on the genre of Chain Reaction games.

I have twisted the concept a bit by adding the abbility to create comboes, which will cause bigger explotions.

The levels are created dynamically, so you can play as long as your skills allow :-)


Yuphii!! i just passed the 53-target and got a score of 523. I must say that you guys who got over 800 are pretty though - and got a pretty though computer as well :)

nice, but could use some improvement

the numbers on the dark blue bubbles are a bit hard to read, en the major problem is the combos. you only have combos of numbers that follow eachother like 2-3-4-5. that is the only combo you can get here. my suggestion is to add a combo like 5-4-3-2 as well, which makes it also possible to get a combo of 2-3-2-1. that would make it also a lot easier (i had to try target 26 around 30 times) and maybe some combo which makes use of the color of the bubbles. maybe coz it could make it too easy. however, then you can divide it into 4 difficulty grades:

(Very) Easy: combo 2-3-4-5, combo 5-4-3-2, color combo
Easy/Medium: combo 2-3-4-5, combo 5-4-3-2, color combo, you may choose 2.
Hard: combo 2-3-4-5, combo 5-4-3-2, color combo, you may only choose 1
INSAAAAANE: no combos

that would make the game alot better and might get you an "awesome" rating. at least you will have me voting 4 or 5 instead of 3.

Thank you for your comment. I think the idea of 4 difficulty grades are great. Many people complain that the game is to hard while others enjoy the challenge.
I will have to do some heavy optimization to the game though, because when you get 40 - 50 bubbles on screen it is lagging even on modest hardware. And with easier grades, people are likely to get lot more bubbles on screen.

I will update the authers comment when a version 2 is ready.

If anyone else got ideas to improve the game, please let me know.


first of all, it's spelled combos, not comboes. it gets way too hard way too fast, just put some more bubbles in. other than that it would be a fairly addicting game

very nice

good job keep working

good game

this is basically boomshine, but it is much better. good job.


This is a wonderful spin on the chain reaction genre.

The only thing I would say is you should add a good soundtrack to keep things a little more interesting.
