Exercise your brain muscles with this new take on a classic board game. 4 in a Row is one of our latest two-player HTML5 games that will challenge your abstract strategy skills.
4 in a Row is inspired by the connection game that rose to commercial prominence in the 1970s. Its appeal is timeless. Adult players may feel nostalgic as it brings back fond childhood memories, while younger players will enjoy discovering a new favorite.
This connection game shares similarities with another classic, Tic Tac Toe. They both require a player to form straight lines (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) in order to win.
4 in a Row is played on an upright board with 7 columns and 6 rows, for a total of 42 slots. Each player is assigned a colored mark (blue or pink).
In Tic Tac Toe, the players can place their marks on any available slot. In 4 in a Row, a player can only select a column to insert a mark. The mark will occupy the lowest available slot.
A player has only 25 seconds to drop their mark into a column. The game is reset if any player runs out of time.
The first person to place at least 4 marks in a straight line wins the round.
If there are no online players with whom you can can be matched, you will be pitted against an AI bot. The game’s AI is quite smart, and you may need a lot of brain juices to outwit it.
A really cool feature we included in the game is the chat box. It allows players to exchange messages with their opponents while playing.
We have also made it possible to use emojis in the chat box. You can use any Unicode (official standard for web characters) emojis, such as the ones you can get from getemoji.com.
The game allows players to select their own avatar. There are currently 8 fun characters to choose from (4 males and 4 females).
In addition, you can enter a nickname of up to 12 characters. Nicknames can include emojis too!
Our team has created a new version of an old favorite game. 4 in a Row is a two-player based on the strategy game that has been enjoyed throughout the years by kids and adults alike.
The game allows players to choose avatars, enter nicknames, and chat with other players.
Since it was built using HTML5, it will run smoothly on any computer or mobile device that has a web browser. It does not require downloading, so sharing with family and friends is as easy as sending a link.
