    Hey all... Just wanted to announce "Power Lines", a game I just released to the Catalog. It runs on all webOS phones, but it plays especially well on the TouchPad, so I thought I'd post this announcement in the TouchPad forum as well.

    Its a 2-4 player multiplayer game where you go head to head with other people, all on one device. Each player guides their curving Power Line as it leaves a trail behind. Force your opponents to crash into the outside wall or other Lines before you do. The last player alive gets one point. First to three points wins.

    The controls are easy to pick up (just turn left and right) and the rounds are short, so it is perfect for a group to just pick up and play. Each round gets tense as the screen fills up with the Power Lines and you must navigate the twisting pathways that emerge from the trails left behind. Each trail has gaps in it, so there is always the chance for a dramatic comeback!

    The link to Power Lines in the App Catalog is in my sig below... Enjoy! I know my family and friends have...

    There's a Power Lines showcase and giveaway with promo codes here!

    .
    The first screenshot shows a round just as it is starting, so there is lots of room to move. And, the second shows the complex pathways that have emerged as the round progresses. (Screenshots taken on a TouchPad, but phones are similar, without the on-screen buttons)

    So it's like TRON light cycles? Sounds fab!

    Entered the contest, but perhaps it's worth supporting you for a measly $1.

    Yes, it is like TRON light cycles. But, your "lightcycle" travels with a curving path instead of straight lines. And, the trail you leave behind has gaps in it. So, if you're good, you can always find a hole to slip through your opponents lines. But, as the screen fills up, things get more tricky and paths get more winding... I love it. Can't you tell?
