Color Lines (aka Lines) is a computer puzzle game, invented by Oleg Demin and first introduced as a video game by the Russian company Gamos (Russian: Геймос) in 1992 (Wikipedia).
The game starts with a 9×9 board with three balls chosen out of seven different colors. The player can move one ball per turn, and the player may only move a ball to a particular place if there is a path (linked set of vertical and horizontal empty cells) between the current position of the ball and the desired destination.
The goal is to remove balls by forming lines (horizontal, vertical or diagonal) of at least five balls of the same color.
If you form a line with at least five balls of the same color, the balls in those lines disappear, and you can move another ball.
If not, three new balls are added, and the game continues until the board is full.
i Color Lines is a faithful remake of original Color Lines PC game, but runs in your browser, mobile phone and tablet.
Once your game is finished, you have an option to type in your name and your score will be shown at the Leader Board.
