l1neum stands in the tradition of 80s arcade games like "Qix" and "Volfied" OS X

A Software Santa PICK! 


Your spaceship sits on the wall enclosing the battlefield. Use the arrow keys to move your vessel. The battlefield resembles the racing grounds of "Tron." Your enemies are roaming the grounds. Your task is cutting off parts of the terrain. Hold down the Spacebar and move into the battlefield. As you reach the wall in a different spot you have cut off parts of the terrain. Your aim is to cut off more than 80% of the battlefield. When you enter the enemyÕs territory, you are susceptive to attacks by the enemy. On the other hand, you are able to kill enemies (or activate extras) by enclosing them. At the end of the game your lines will be converted into a 3D sculpture. The game l1neum stands in the tradition of 80Õs arcade games like "Qix" and "Volfied."
