Gnome version of Same Game, in which you click blocks of balls of the same color to make them disappear. You get points to eliminating all the blocks, and the points grow as the square of the size of the block of balls, so most strategies involve picking a color and going for one big click at the end which eliminates all or most of that color, while preserving the color until that point. You also get a thousand-point bonus for clearing the screen, so getting rid of the final remnants of each color becomes important.
I checked, and it seems that the formula for scoring the number of balls you remove is simply (n - 2)**2, where n is the number of balls removed. Depressing, but true. I was really hoping for something more complicated. -- AlexWilkins
