Prometheus is an arcade game which requires swiftness, a fair amount of strategy, and a bit of luck. Throughout the game, your main goal is to capture as much territory on the playfield as possible, thereby tightening the bounding box around the sweeping firestix. To this main goal is sometimes added the additional goal of separating two or more firestix into different regions on the playfield. Levels get progressively more difficult as the amount of territory you must secure increases.
Prometheus can be played as either a single player game or a two player game. The two player game is possibly even more strategic than the single player game, as players can choose to cooperate together or compete against one another. Your goal of capturing territory to complete each level remains, but now you must deal with the other player, either peacefully or aggressively.
