Astute Dibs is a puzzle game inspired by Color Lines with some elements of the board game checkers. The objective is to eliminate as many "dibs" balls as possible for the highest points.

The gameplay field is a 9x9 grid on which various colored "dibs" appear. With the mouse, select any dib to be moved. Each dib can only be moved one space at a time, like in checkers. The removal is done by jumping the selected dib over two or more others, either the same color or another, in straight lines. Cornering can be marked in the dib's "path" with a right click of the mouse.

It features three difficulty settings, two different skins (standard and Balls Mania), 24-bit graphics, original sounds and MIDI music.
