Lineapolis – Old School Pre-Tech Gaming, Now on WM

If you are an old school guy or gal, you may remember those boring times at school where you had nothing to do while your teachers where yapping and asking you to not say anything. At those times, you would take a piece of paper from your folder and would turn it into a game mat for you and possibly the guy or gal sitting next to you. All sorts of popular games emerged from these kinds of situation, but none was as much of a head scratcher as the one made by XDA member mrdarek.

The game is free and should work under most resolutions according to the dev.

I try explain my game but I’m not native English speaker… Principal game rules are simple. You need draw line by 5 adjacent points. On start it not possible so game rules allow add 1 new point for create line. You have some default set points on start, their number increases with the progress of the game. There is also bonus mode in game – you can store points for future use if you draw line by 5 existing points.
Idea is not new. Before computer times I play this game on boring lessons in school using only paper and pen. But i was not happy – I could not restore my best games, so I create computer version of that game – now I can save games, undo moves, reviews games, found hidden moves e.t.c.
Unique value of that game is that you can play just for fun drawing lines or can play in ambitious style and try get best score.
Peoples don’t know my game because is unique in Internet – so many sudokus sokobans and other games for single players but no one has coded my favourite game. So try my game and give me opinion here, might you like it.

You can find more information in the game thread.

Whenever Apple launches a new product or service, it definitely manages to grab the attention of all.
