The main draw of this game is the sheer amount of variety in it. The markers will fly onto the screen toward a line, and you need to tap on the screen when it makes contact. The thing is that, during the level, the line will move from one spot to another and split up into four lines at random times, and that adds to the challenge.

What’s more, is that there are no in-app purchases in this game. All of the content that you unlock in the game can be achieved by just playing it.
