Marble Lines

Game Description: Destroy all of the marbles before they reach the hole.

How to Play Marble Lines:

  • In Marble Lines the marbles are lined up, and gradually advance towards the hole.
  • The marbles are shot from a turret located near the center of the screen. Move your mouse to change the direction of the turret. Click the mouse to shoot the marbles.
  • The turret shows two marbles. The larger marble is the one currently loaded in the turret and ready to be shot. The smaller marble shows the next available marble to be shot. Press the space bar to swap the larger marble with the smaller marble when it is to your advantage.
  • Your goal is to destroy all marbles by forming groups of 3 or more marbles of the same color.
  • If you destroy all of the marbles before they reach the hole, you will advance to the next level. If you fail, the game is over!

Marble Lines Game Options:
  • The game sounds may be turned on or off by clicking the microphone icon, located near the upper right corner of the game screen.
  • To pause your game, click the question mark located to the left of the microphone icon. To resume, click 'Start'.

Marble Lines Playing Tips:
  • Make sure your mouse cursor remains within the game screen. If your cursor goes off of the game screen you will be unable to shoot the marbles.
  • Marble Lines will always show you the next available marble that can be shot. (You will see the next available marble displayed as a smaller marble in the turret). Pay attention to this. Knowing what marble comes next can help you plan your next shot.
  • Sometimes the marble in the turret may not have a clear shot at two adjoining marbles of the same color. There are four things you can do. One option would be to wait until you do have a clear shot. (Only use this option if the wait will be very short). A second option would be to fire at a marble of the same color. Now you have two adjoining marbles for that color. The next time this colored marble appears in the turret you may be able to shoot this group of two. A third option exists if you have a clear path to any edge of the game screen without any marbles blocking your way. In that case, simply rotate the turret and fire toward the edge of the game screen. The ball will harmlessly exit from the game screen and not add to the number of marbles you need to destroy. Finally, a fourth option, would be not to fire the marble currently in the turret, but instead, to swap it with the next available marble. To make this swap, click your space bar. (This swap is only possible if the two marbles in the turret are different colors. If the two marbles are the same color; no swap is possible. You will have to fire the current marble in the turret before you can get to the next marble).
  • Look for combinations. For instance, if you have the following sequence of marbles: yellow, yellow, red, red, yellow, and yellow; you could fire a red marble at the two adjoining red marbles and all 6 marbles will be destroyed! (Your shot would take out the 2 red marbles because the red marble you fired from the turret creates a match of 3 red marbles. And, the 2 yellow marbles to the left of the 2 red marbles, would join with the 2 yellow marbles to the right, forming a combination of 4 yellow marbles). Once you become a little bit experienced with Marble Lines you will easily learn how to recognize these combinations.
