The object of Phlinx is to create groups of 3 or more matching sones and make them disappear. Free the four captured glyphs and win the puzzle game!

Gameplay consists mostly of using your sun disk to shoot stones into the playing field. To aim your sun disk, just move your mouse around in the playing field. You'll see that the sun disk rotates to follow your cursor, and an aiming line shows you where your shot will land. Once you are satisfied with your aim, click the left mouse button to fire!

If you're having trouble finding a good shot, you can also move your disk to any of the three different platforms you see at the bottom of the screen. To move to a different platform, either left-click on the platform or use the space bar to rotate between platforms.

Once you have launched a stone, it will travel in a straight line, bouncing off the pillars on the sides, until it hits another stone in the playing field. The stone will join the rest of the playing field at the point where it landed. If that stone becomes part of a group of 3 or more stones of the same color, they'll disappear.

If, after these stones disappear, there are other stones disconnected from the rest of the playing field, they'll fall to the ground. These stones then make their way down the ramp and knock the progress meter closer and closer to its goal at the top of the pillar. It's by releasing these stones, not just making matches, that you earn tokens and win the game.

Your sun disk contains two stones. The larger stone in front is the one you currently have loaded. The smaller stone in back indicates the next color that will be loaded into your sun disk.

As you make shots, new rows will be added to the playing field. These new rows will be added based on the number of shots you make, not the amount of time you take. So feel free to take your time between shots to aim, chat, read a short romance novel, or bake a batch of chocolate-chip cookies for your favorite game developers (Cough cough.) The rows won't advance during that time.

Here are some tips and tricks to help you enjoy a game of Phlinx the free online puzzle game!

Don't forget you can bounce stones off the side pillars. This will help you make matches higher up in the playing field so you can drop lots of stones. It helps you a lot in the nighttime stage.

If you're having trouble lining up a shot, don't forget that (in the daytime) you can move your sun disk to different platforms. You can line up better shots that way.

Remember that making lots of stones fall is the key to winning, not just making matches.

At the end of every round, we provide you with a helpful hint. Be sure to read those.

I'm going to wager a guess that the badge will be used for either a Super Edition badge or another Site-Wide Challenge. But those are just my humble guesses -- wish I knew for sure!

I liked all of the badges, but personally I thought the bathtub full of tiles just sounded... painful! :o

I think Pogo is giving us the badge to show their appreciation for their members. I'm always happy to enjoy a free badge in whatever game it is given.

I would imagine that the badge will be given for whichever game is represented by the artwork that wins the vote.

I am guessing that Option 1- Man running up pyramid steps might possibly be for Phlink because the game screen for Phlink has pyramids.

I am guessing that Option 2- Man surfing on an ocean of tiles might be representative of Ride The Tide because the game has this as a feature.

I don't have a clear guess for Option 3 – Man relaxing in a bathtub of tiles but I am thinking perhaps it may be Mahjong Garden (or really any of the Mahjong Games) because to me the man in the tub reminds me of a Zen Warrior enjoying a ritual bath.

Hopefully it will be out tomorrow and the mystery will be solved.

It would be nice to know the reason for the badge. I don't know which one to vote for without knowing why Pogo is giving it to us.

Please use the Help link to contact Pogo directly with your concern. As fellow members, we don't have knowledge of the reason behind the change. Thanks.

Thanks gg

I just went and looked again. There are 20 non member rooms listed and a TOTAL of 19 players scattered through the rooms. It is ridiculous to make an unnecessary change. Why? It is very annoying to see a room you have played in for years moved for no apparent reason. Every day I saw many familiar "faces" in "In Denial", so the room was moved just to annoy us? Several of us would vie for top 24-hour score EVERY DAY. Grrrrrrrr!!!

The seemed to have moved a bunch of Phlinx rooms to Non-Members rooms. The room I play in - Denial on de Nile, is still a Club room :)

Phlinx • My Favorite Club Room is Suddenly a Non-Member Room!

By faith552 » April 28th, 2015, 3:44 pm

I have been playing Phlinx in the room "In De Nile" every day for years. Today when I went to play, I didn't see the room. I scrolled down and there it was.. as a non-member room! :o What's the deal? It's not like the non-member rooms are too crowded and they needed another room. Please put "In De Nile" back where it belongs!

I play in Expert mode. I haven't had that problem lately. It may have been just that one day.
