Game starts with several randomly selected balls placed on the board that has has 81 cells. Game objective is to earn the highest score (no limit).
Points are earned every time you remove balls from the board. The more balls you remove the more points you earn. You can get 10 or 11 points for 5 balls depending on “Next Balls” shown or not. One point added if “next balls” is switched off.
To remove balls, arrange at least five same color balls to lines – vertical, diagonal or horizontal. To move a ball, select it first by clicking on it, and then click on a destination square.
Try to keep at least a half of the game board cleared. To make your game easier always keep more than one line of the same balls ready for clearing.
Build up lines near the border, so you have more room for navigating the game pieces around in the middle.
Try to keep more than three almost completed lines existing on the game board at all times.
The various belt colors in the game symbolize the stages of a growing player’s expertise. A beginner is getting a White Belt. Once the beginner has managed to learn all the basic game moves, he or she is presented with the Yellow Belt.
With every move computer adds three new balls to the board, however new balls will not be added to the game board after a line removal. Instead, you will be rewarded with yet another move before new three balls.
You can only move a ball if a free path exists between the current location and the destination selected.
You can check your position against other players at any time. Everyday more and more players from all over the world join Color Lines. The leader board becomes crowded.
Use “Countries” drop down list to sort Color Lines game players by country or sort by belt color.
Use “Scroll” to jump to the top or to the bottom of the leader board.
This game brings together the best players from around the world to participate in World Championship – an annual international competition. It is very simple to participate and win – your score should be the highest score at the Leader Board by December 31st.
Remember – the more balls you remove at once the greater your score is. You are playing against computer that cannot be won, so you compete against the highest score, yours or other players.
