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 had to look at my stats and think you must mean biggest win.
On mine: Biggest Win: 1917
Highest Score: 378
Largest Group Played (Drop) 98

I think the biggest win must be the result of the second two. :lol: I play all levels but prefer Normal.

I think men have more patience than we do and make the higher scores easily. (Sigh) I try.

I have been wondering the same thing. I know you need to drop large groups of stones, but then you win and go on to the bonus round.

Hi CAgal,
Thank you for your response. I completely forgot about the store/switch feature, as I have never utilized that when playing. a definite "blonde moment"... :lol:

Thanks again!

For that badge I played on Beginner Level. There is usually only one power up showing at first. Build up a good group to drop before you drop that power up. When you do, store it/switch it out. It didn't take me that long. It was a nice change from just dropping groups. Good Luck.

Phlinx • Planet Phlinx badge

By gr8meatymo » November 20th, 2016, 7:51 pm

Hi everyone ~

I have been struggling with this particular badge. The requirements are to "Win 60 rounds without using any power ups". I find that if I avoid shooting them down/creating large drops that would contain them, I end up getting overloaded with stones and losing the round. Is there some sort of trick to this?

I am hoping that I might get some advice as to how I could achieve this.

Thanks in advance!

That usually indicates a mouse problem.

If it's a corded mouse, clean it.

If it's a cordless mouse, replace the battery.

If the mouse is old you should consider replacing it because the left click function wears out over time and will cause the issue you have described.

You might not notice problems in other games because it's a subtle change but you will notice difficulty in some games such as Phlinx and Mahjong Garden.

I replace my mouse at least once a year.

No, you aren't.

However, the problem is still due to the same issue that causes our own Minis to load incompletely: a lag in communication between our own computer and Pogo's server. It doesn't matter if the Mini is ours or someone else's, we still get that info (or don't get it) from the Pogo server.


I agree...you aren't the only one, this was recently discussed in a room I was in where others could see...and Seska's explanation is correct. If your computer loads slowly it doesn't matter if it's your own mini or someone else's.

Phlinx • Phinx Double Shots

By NevadaJimbo » November 19th, 2016, 8:27 am

What's going on with the shots in Phinx. It's today's challenge and it has become a real pain in the posterior to play. Double shots of the stones. And it's not just happening early on in the game when it doesn't really make any difference. Late in the game it is causing all sorts of trouble with stone overload.

Driving me nuts. :x
