Despite a few complaints, this Lines-style game offers a greater challenge than many of its brethren. When you fire up Atlantis, you'll see a snake-shaped tube that rapidly will start to fill up with different colored balls. It's your job to fire balls from a cannon to make matches of three or more before the line reaches the end of the tube. Keep an eye out for the falling bonuses, which help you out by slowing down the flow of the balls or even reversing them. The graphics, music, and sound effects both seem appealing for a game such as this, but you always can adjust the audio volume from the Options panel. You'll also get the ability to play in full-screen or windowed modes, but you won't find any extensive customization options. We didn't like that Atlantis places extra shortcuts on your desktop without permission; nor do we think the one-hour trial period is particularly generous. Still, puzzle fiends will probably still find Atlantis addictive.
