Right since the early days of the video gaming industry in the 80s, we have seen a number of classic games which was also the first genre of video games that came up in the industry. These games were liked by many people and since then, we have seen thousands of classic games being developed for playing on PC and other devices. Under this genre, match 3 games are quiet popular, the famous ones being bejeweled, diamond twister, jewel twist etc. and a number of others have been developed since the popularity of these games. Falco Lines v.1.4 is a similarly designed line game but with an extra element of complexity in its design and gameplay.
Falco Lines v.1.4 by Falco Software Company is a freeware board game with an entertaining layout and a mix of colors. The game has a 2D interfaced, 9x9 board consisting of various colored balls with seven different colors. The player has to eliminate the balls by arranging at least five identically colored balls in a straight line pattern which can be either a vertical, horizontal or diagonal line. For this, you can move a single ball per turn in a straight line only if there are empty cells in its path. But you have to take the moves very cautiously because if no lines disappear on your move, then three new balls are added to the board and the game gets over when the board is full. This adds to the complexity of the game over the traditional line games as every move made in vain will add to the difficulty for further moves.
To conclude with, Falco Lines v.1.4 is a nice line game made for the people who would like to have an upgrade over the conventional match 3 games. The game has wide compatibility for a number of versions of windows. Hence, it scores four rating points out of five for its gameplay and graphics, despite being a freeware.
