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.

Phlinx • Cannon does not move

By GoLucky4 » July 5th, 2014, 6:15 pm

Please help...I have to guess to try & shoot the groups of colored stones. I was fine a couple of days ago. Now, no matter which of the 3 ports the cannon is not working at all.
Thank you in advance for all of your help, I really appreciate it!

I agree with HMSwtGrl about your anti virus program. You can try disabling it long enough to see if you can play the games. Disable, restart your computer, try the games. You can enable the anti virus program after that.

you may be better off with Firefox. Just need to make sure you have java and flash enabled. it could also be your antivirus causing issues.

100 to home depot who I had scrub my computer, thinking I had a bug..199. to Trend Micro who without question has spent the hours trying to fig out the magic of playing JAVA etc games. Sun they took control of my computer at 9AM and we shut down at 6pm. that was the 3rd day they had worked on it. Had Frontier Commucations scan, as screen was saying conection problems. So. yes I spent the money, sadly I don't live in a city with a million people who know abt computers and problems. and I have to relay on only a few people. Last guy said why not dump pogo and go with all the free games you can pay on line. But, living alone at 74 pogo has been a great friend. Question answered?

Phlinx • not getting credit for the 10 ball drop in phlinx

By Beachlove9Pl » June 29th, 2014, 12:10 pm

After not being able to play phlinx in internet explorer at all....I switched to chrome.

Well....guess what? I didnt get credit for dropping over 10 balls. I am tired of jumping through hoops to play games on pogo.

This is inadequate at the very least!
