The top skill you'll need in order to be successful in the Line 98 Free app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone is logic. That's right: you need to let logic completely take over as you do your best to clear all the lines from the grid. The grid is made up of different-colored balls and it plays out like a challenging and addictive puzzle. The game is very easy to pick up and understand yet you will spend hours upon hours trying to master it.
Your mission in the Line 98 Free app is to solve the puzzle you are given by clearing the grid of all the lines of the balls. Despite the fact that this one is easy to understand you'll find the effects and graphics to be pretty impressive for such a streamlined offering. The app even supports Game Center so that you can challenge your friends as you all try to climb the Leaderboard and reach the top. What better way to challenge your friends than by a game of who has the high score?
The app is free to play and currently requires iOS 8.0 or later to use. It has just been updated with a number of bug fixes and general improvements. Customers have given this one four out of five stars, which is a very solid rating. Users have called this one difficult but fun, interesting, and addictive. They would, however, like to see the instructions include a bit more information.
The Rules of the Game
In the Line 98 Free app you will be working to clear as many lines possible before the grid ends up filling up with balls. On each turn you will be allowed to move just one ball. Each turn you are working to match up at least five balls of the same color. If you're unable to do this, three balls are added to the grid, giving you even more than you need to clear. You will want to take your time and think through each move because you also want to think about how that line that is cleared will affect the placement of all the other balls in the grid. The bottom of the screen will show your current score as well as how many balls you have cleared.
