This download is one of the first PC versions of this wonderful game. It is freeware, and the computer AI is quite good. If you like the game but want a more modern interface and better graphics, check out the Windows versions in Related Links section below.
Bad news everybody!Okay so this\'ll be short, but in all likelihood, I am going to be shutting this page down. It\'s expensive (very), and I do not think it\'s needed anymore given the success of GOG.com, Abandonia, and a few others. I simply don\'thave the time to keep it up and running, nor can do I have the time to make it the kickass community that I think it needs to be. I tried to ping abandonia about taking it over, but I never got a response. if anyone else has any alternative ideas, drop me a line at admin at hotud.org and we can figure something out.

Chain Reaction is a popular puzzle game that was invented in mid-1980s for the Commodore 64 and other computers, and new versions are continually being made for new systems, including Windows and handheld computers. The game plays somewhat like a cross between checkers and life, although it is more unique. Players take it in turns to add bombs to a grid of squares, taking new squares of their own or adding to squares that already contain their own bombs. When the number of bombs in a square reaches a certain level, the square will explode and shower the bombs in to each of the surrounding squares, changing any bombs in those squares to the color of the player who started the explosion. These explosions can cause other squares to reach their explosion point, and thus chain reactions of explosions can take place right across the board, and so on. The objective of the game is to eliminate all the bombs of the other players, so that yours are the only bombs left on the board.
