Finally, Smart Lines is available again, but this time only for Ubuntu/Linux for the time being.
Just open the Ubuntu Software Center and it should be there, in the "What's new" list!
Or head to the "Board games" category.

Bugfix for Squares on Firefox
A few days ago it was brought to my attention (thanks Marc!) that
Squares didn't work anymore under
Firefox. It turns out it was due to a change in Firefox 4 which ignores the HTML 4.01
spec and follows HTML 5 spec instead... Anyway now it should be working again!

Unfortunately, Smart Lines has to be removed for the time being. Thanks again
to everyone who registered it! You are still able to re-download the full
version if you need.

any installation. No Java, no ActiveX, no virus, no spyware, no ads; it's just
for your pleasure! (And mine :))
Will you beat the high-score?

Smart Lines 1.2
The new version of Smart Lines comes with a lot of improvements:
This update is free if you already bought the game. Get it by entering your
email address on the support page.
- First of all, Smart Lines is now available for MacOS X as well as
- The new "Master" difficulty level will turn your brains upside-down. If
you found the "Expert" level easy to beat, you should try this one :).
- Don't wait for the computer to play in "Expert" mode: the AI has been
optimised to play 10 times faster!
- Enjoy five new beautiful background pictures, one per difficulty level.
- Stars appear in the easy difficulty levels to show you the lines of 3
spheres so that you don't miss them. This makes the game easier and
- Reworked tutorial messages.
- The game is automatically saved if you quit a game in progress.
- The demo version gives you access to more levels than previously.

Bytten's Ernies 2005

The games which got these awards where selected from all 110 games reviewed by Bytten since they started 2 years ago.

Just a small news item to keep you informed on what's going on here. I've
been working on the MacOS X version of Smart Lines, on which progress has been going very
nicely. The next update will be available for both MacOS X and Windows!
The game is also running in a Linux PPC (PowerPC) version, but it requires
more work to be releasable. Please tell me if you are interested.
By the way, two very nice reviews have been published on the web since the beginning of the year:
Bytten gave a tremendous 96% rating to Smart Lines, and
GameVortex rated Smart Lines 85%.
