A highly addictive one-player game distributed with GNOME. It is a port of a game called Color Lines.

The game is played on a 9x9 grid, with the initial condition of 4 balls randomly placed in grid spots. The play is to move one of the balls to another area on the board which can be reached by rolling the ball horizontally or vertically any number of spaces. After moving a single ball, three more balls are randomly placed on the board.

The only way to remove balls from the board is to line 5 or more balls of the same color in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally). If you remove 5+x balls, you get 10+2x points. There are balls of 7 colors available in play:

The object of the game is to keep the board from being completely filled with balls.

As of 6 August 2004 my high score is 2048 Ok, I don't get out much.
