👾 The lost Atari arcade game returns with Jeff Minter's Akka Arrh

Color Linez


Color Linez is a windows version of the Russian game Color Lines which was originally released by Gamos.

It is a single player, freeware, turn-based colour matching, game played on a 9x9 grid. Each turn the player may move one ball and this causes three randomly coloured balls fall onto the board. The object of the game is to arrange the balls to form lines consisting of five or more balls of the same colour. The lines can be arranged vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. Each line completed immediately disappears and scores points. There is basically no end to the game, but your first objective is to surpass the handicap points scored by the "king". Once the original handicap has been exceeded that score becomes the king's handicap for subsequent games until it to is surpassed.

The game is played entirely with the mouse.
