GridLines is an electronic adaptation of a popular pen-and-paper pastime known as Dots and Boxes, first published in 1889 by French mathematician Édouard Lucas, where two players take turns connecting dots on a grid to create squares. In this version the players can be human or computer-controlled, with other customization settings and modes available from the main menu.

There are three single-player modes. Classic mode has five difficulty levels to choose from, each featuring a computer opponent progressively more skilled at the game. Bonus mode is similar to the previous settings, but with different values for each potential square, with certain grid positions giving extra points and adding a strategic element to the gameplay. Custom mode has adjustable options for opponent skill and bonus points, also setting the board size and how many lines are already added to the grid from the start.

In the multiplayer mode, two human players compete on boards of variable size. An integrated mp3 player can be used to add a custom soundtrack.
