Start the game by pressing any key. If nothing happens, click the game area with the mouse pointer to make sure it has your attention. Use the arrow keys for moving and draw a line with Z or X keys. Z draws the line slowly - which gives more points. X draws the line faster. To capture a new area draw a line from somewhere on the green border, to somewhere else on the same border. The goal is to capture Tix by conquering ever more of his territory. But be careful! While you are drawing the line, you are vulnerable to attacks. Good Luck!
