RULES AND FEATURES
Simplicity of play and simplicity of execution-these are the main advantages of this version of popular entertainment from the 90s. Indeed, the progenitor game Lines (Balls, Lines, etc.) appeared back in 1998. During this time, dozens of variants and various modifications of line balls have been released, but the most popular ones are those with the least bells and whistles and difficulties.
So, here is a square playing field of 9x9 cells. At the beginning of the game, three balls appear on it in random cells. Balls of different colors take part in the process. The player's task is to rearrange one or another ball on the field every turn, trying to line up single-color balls in horizontal, vertical or diagonal lines. Five identical balls formed in a line disappear from the field. If there are more than five of them, for example, six or seven — even better — you will get more points.
But do not forget that after each move, if the line is not formed on the field and, accordingly, does not disappear, the number of balls increases by three. Thus, if you get too carried away with making long lines or several combinations at once, then you risk not leaving the free space necessary to move the balls around the field. Here we will clarify a little. To move the ball, it is necessary that there is at least one free passage between the starting and target cells of the field.
The mechanics of the game are such that the rearranged ball goes from its position to the specified one on the free cells. However, it can only move between cells vertically or horizontally. If all his possible paths are blocked by other balls, then he will not be able to pass and will remain in place.
The game lasts as long as there is at least one opportunity to rearrange any ball. Enjoy your stay!
