Rules

  1. Your aim is to draw as many lines as possible.
  2. To draw a line, click once on the point where it should start, and once in the direction it should be drawn in.
  3. A line can be drawn in eight directions, either horizontal, vertical or diagonal and it always stretches four points/dots away from the origin.
  4. To draw a line, 4 of the 5 dots the line goes though, must be points (bigger).
  5. If a line is drawn through five points (big), you gain one extra "available point" which could be used later.
  6. Available points will be used automatically if you attempt to draw a line without the necessary 4 points, or if you do not have enough available points, the line cannot be drawn.
  7. Lines cannot overlap, but they can start in the same points.
