Object of the Game

  • The object of the game is to keep your board as free of incoming balls as possible for the duration of the game.
  • A player moves the balls to form lines of 4 or more balls of the same color vertically, horizontally or diagonally. Such lines of 4 or more balls are immediately deleted and points are scored.


In the example, a player can move a gray ball in the right-hand side of the board and place it in the empty spot together with other gray balls so that they form a vertical line of 4. Such line will be immediately deleted and points will be scored for each deleted ball.

Moving the Balls

To move the ball, click on it -- and it will start 'vibrating', indicating that it is selected and ready to move. Now click on the destination square -- and the ball will move there if the path is available.
Please note: the balls can only move horizontally or vertically and they cannot pass through other balls. The balls cannot move through gray-colored 'block squares' that occasionally appear.

Scoring

The longer the deleted line of balls, the more points will be scored.
  • Line of 4 balls scores 12 points -- 3 points for each deleted ball
  • Line of 5 balls scores 20 points -- 4 points for each deleted ball
  • Line of 6 balls scores 30 points -- 5 points for each deleted ball
  • Line of 7 balls scores 42 points -- 6 points for each deleted ball
There is also a time bonus for finishing the game earlier [via Finish button]

Strategy Tips

  • At the beginning of the game, try to form longer lines (5 or more) to score more points
  • Keep track of which next balls are about to appear (small balls on the right-hand side)
