<para>&kolorlines; is a simple but highly addictive, one player game by &kde;. &kolorlines; has been inspired by well known game of <application>Color Lines</application>, written for <application>DOS</application>, by Olga Demina, Igor Ivkin and Gennady Denisov back in 1992.</para>
<para>The goal of &kolorlines; is quite plain. The player has to move the colored marbres around the game board, gathering them into the lines of the same color by five. Once the line is complete it is removed from the board, therefore freeing precious space. In the same time the new marbres keep arriving by three after each move, filling up the game board.</para>
<para>&kolorlines; cannot be won, and is played exclusively to get a high score. The game ends once the whole game board is filled up with marbres.</para>

<para> When &kolorlines; starts you are presented with the game board split into 81 squares (the game board is 9x9 squares), and right away three new colored marbres appear on the board. Use your mouse to move the marbres from cell to cell to group them into the lines of the same color. However, after each of your moves the computer drops three more marbres onto the board. To avoid filling up the board you should gather the marbres into lines of 5 or more marbres. When such a line is complete, the marbres are removed from the field and your score grows.</para>
<note><title>Note:</title><para>The new marbres will not be added to the field after a line removal. Instead you will be rewarded with yet another move before a new triplet of marbres is added.</para></note>
<para>The increase in score depends solely on the amount of the erased marbres.</para>
