Color Lines is a puzzle game based on Lines, a PC game originally released by Oleg Demin in 1992. The objective is simple; survive as long as possible, and achieve a high score! Underneath the simplistic gameplay is a game that will fray your nerves and eat into your free time.
Color Lines offers a large amount of music tracks from Tom et Jerry, and a lot of skins from various authors.
Rules for classic challenge mode
The computer places three coloured pawns randomly on the game board.
The computer chooses three new pawns at random, and displays them in the "Preview" area of the status panel on the right of the screen. These pawns will be placed on the board during the next turn.
The cursor is displayed, and the player moves it and selects one of the pawns to move. You must move a pawn during each turn; you cannot pass.
If you move a pawn and a line of at least five pawns of the same colour has not been created, then the turn is finished.
If a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line of at least five pawns of the same colour is created after moving a pawn, the computer removes the pawns from the board and calculates the points that you have scored. You can then move another pawn.
In order to move a pawn, a clear path to the new square must exist. In other words, the pawn must be able to move to its new location, from square to square, without any other pawns blocking its path. If the pawn cannot be moved, the cursor flashes and the computer emits a beep.
