   This game uses such a basic idea but is executed so well that it is a
very playable game.

The object of the game is to fill in a square so that at least 75% of the
square is colored. You color the square by moving your character (more
like a triangle shape piece) up, down, left, or right through the square
trying to cut the square into the smallest piece possible. This would be
easy except for the fact that there is a sizzling line moving randomly
throughout the square. If this sizzling line touches you, you lose a life.
There are also two other enemies that move along the perimeter of the
square and if any of these touch you, they will also kill you. Every time
you cut the square into a piece, that part of the main square will be
filled in with a colorful design. Once you fill in at least 75% of the
square with color you will go to the next level where the sizzling line
will move faster and is harder to avoid.

The graphics and sound are basic but they don't have to be fancy for this
type of game. Playability is what this game is all about and boy is it
ever playable. The game is monotonous because there is no variety to the
levels, you just have to fill in the square, but don't be put off by this,
play the game and you will be instantly addicted.

In conclusion, this is a CLASSIC example of a game that has such a basic
idea but is executed so well that it becomes a great game. You will become
addicted the moment you start to play. Games don't come much more playable
than this. Everyone should own a copy of this game.
