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.

Are you talking about a Badge? Which one? What are the requirements?

No, I'm saying that I had two hours at the moment I activated it. Once it became 1 hour and 59 minutes, it said "one hour" because that's the way the display is set up. Once you reach 59 minutes, it should give the "minutes left". It still was active once that first hour had passed but I didn't continue to play because I've already earned it.

I also set it on beginner, not easy.

I don't think I'm understanding correctly. Are you saying that you also did not have two hours to complete? I tried it your way by changing to easy mode and then activating the badge. For a moment there I thought I was okay. It did not indicate I had two hours, but it didn't indicate I had less than that, either. But as you say, after the first round of four games, I quickly had one hour. Maybe I need to contact customer support?

That I can't answer. When I activated it to make sure I was remembering correctly, I showed 2 hours to complete it. However, once a few minutes passed, it showed an hour left because it doesn't count down minutes until after it's under 60. Since I knew it works that way, I didn't track it and since I've already earned the badge, I just let it expire.

While I do appreciate the tips, this does not answer my question. The rules of the challenge has changed. I no longer have two hours to complete the task. When I run out of time and reactivate the badge, I still start with less than an hour. Why the change in time?

Phlinx • Re: Cheated out of required time

Play on Beginner. Start a game and click the arrow left to get from easy to beginner.

Get the game loaded and ready to play before activating the badge.

Winning is not required to receive credit. Set up your shots to create groups of 5 that can be easily detached. One way is to make a string of unmatched colors under a color group, then take out the color group. You can "toss away" unwanted colors to an empty part of the top of the screen or shoot them to the top. You can either hit new game after the day section and restart or play through. The groups count in the night section, too. Depends on how long it's taking the splash screens and jackpot spins to load between rounds.

I'm playing an older challenge that requires you to complete the task in two hours. I tried it when it was first available, but did not do very well and decided to get some more practice and experience. It is now much later and I've picked it up again, but now instead of two hours I am informed that I have less than an hour. What gives?
