Imagine throwing a load of bombs up in the air then setting one of them off and watching the ensuing carnage as they all explode in the sky. Pretty dangerous, huh?

Well, not if you install ChainReaction on your Pocket PC.

The object of this game is to explode as many of the 50 bombs that appear on screen as you can.

All the bombs fly up in random directions from the ground and you must tap one of them with the stylus to set it off. A yellow and red blast then appears around that bomb and any other incendary devices that touch it will go off as well.

You get three tries at it per game and the challenge is to see if you can get a perfect 150. It's quite good fun and once you've figured out the best time and position to strike you'll find yourself racking up lots of points.

In fact, this is probably the downfall of the game, as you'll probably be able to complete it within an hour.

The graphics are pretty bland - the bombs are basically just white dots and the rather tasteless image of Hiroshima exploding in the background cannot be changed.

There are no options or difficulty levels to speak of, although your high scores are auto-saved. I was disappointed by the lack of sound too, and would've liked to hear Diana Ross' version of 'Chain Reaction' playing in the background.

Chain Reaction is all about exploding stuff! Launch only a single explosion, and see how good a chain reaction you get! Don't shoot too fast, you only have three rounds to try and get a perfect score: 150!
