Casual Corner: One More Line

We know how it is. You worked hard for your 10:1 KDR, but sometimes, you just want to take five, relax and enjoy a quick game on your phone. Unfortunately, finding good games is anything but quick – most mobile gems end up buried under a mountain of trash. But like we said, we know how it is, so every month we shine a spotlight on a great diversion to get you through the work week.

Sometimes you don’t want to shoot things or stress your mind over simple puzzles that never really had you fooled. Sometimes you just want to kick back and mindlessly tap your phone. Maybe you want to do that to some funky disco tunes that take you back to a simpler time when phones didn’t exist? If that sounds like something you’d enjoy then One More Line might be the game for you.

Developed by the people over at SMG Studio One More Line is a game where your only care in the world is how long you can tap your phone and lead this trippy little blob along. That’s it. There’s no pointless story, odd puzzle, or unnecessarily difficult mechanics to learn. Just you, a finger of your choosing and the most relaxing pose you can get into for some line drawing.

All you do is tap away at your screen while this line flies along in circles. The blob will attach itself to a circle and spin around until you lift your finger. Once you do it’ll move on and assuming you don’t run into a circle or the walls, you just keep going up. If you do run into a wall or an object the run is over and you just start over from the beginning. That being said you can’t run into a wall while you going in circles around obstacles, meaning you can use that to manipulate your position a little. You can, however, still run into the circular obstacles and end your run while spinning.

The further you get and longer you play will unlock rewards. These rewards do one simple thing and that’s change the aesthetics. You can change the appearance of your avatar to one with a hat, an arrow through it and a few other options that take some time invested to unlock. You can also change the trail you leave behind in color and style. If you don’t care about any of these things then you can also just set it to random and enjoy the surprise as you run.

Honestly, there’s nothing to it. This game is that simple or shall I say “Casual.” Just find yourself a “Corner” and let the disco funk put you in a nice trippy trance. You can download One More Line on both iOS and Android here and here respectively.
