A downloadable game for Windows

Congratulations, you're famous! Your square fans are the same colour as you and will eagerly try to gather round you while staying away from other circles. The local press wants to take photographs of you posing with your fans to make you even more famous. Unfortunately there are other famous circles in the neighbourhood and there's only time to bring one of you to the height of fame.

Score points by leading your fans into the light blue scoring zones that appear around the arena. The more fans you have with you in the zone at once, the faster you'll earn points. The first player to reach 200 points becomes known world-wide and is the winner.

Tips

  • You only get points for your fans being in the scoring zone if you're inside the zone as well. You get one point per second for every fan that's in the scoring zone with you.
  • Other player's fans will try to avoid you - if another player is getting ahead, try ramming into them to frighten all of their fans away.
  • The level wraps around at the borders - if you lose track of your fans, you might be able to catch them coming back again from the other side of the screen.
