Fire your ball into the line to hit a ball where your ball and the line ball add up to 10. eg. If your ball is a 4 then try and hit a 6. You can also use your ball to destroy a group of same numbered balls. Your aim is to prevent the line of balls reaching the hole at the end of the channel. When this happens the balls will rapidly pour down the hole and you lose the game.

Playing by Single Switch
The cannon will rotate slowly clockwise. When it is pointing in the right direction, click the mouse to fire. After you fire the cannon will rotate more rapidly anti-clockwise to allow you to quickly reposition the cannon. Once the cannon has moved past the direction you want to aim at, click the mouse / switch and the cannon will move more slowly forward waiting for you to click the mouse / switch to fire.
Use your cursor keys to rotate the cannon and press the SPACEBAR or ENTER/RETURN key to fire.
Single Switch Scanning
The ball launcher will rotate automatically. Press your key, mouse or switch to launch the ball. The rotation speed of the launcher can be controled using the 'Marble shooter rotation speed' settings below.
NOTE: If you choose "Mouse Click Only (Scanning)" then a large green button will be displayed below the Game Menu and below the Game. Your mouse cursor must be positioned over the large green button while scanning for the mouse/switch clicks to be detected.
