### Object of the Game

To be the first player to get four dots in a row, vertically, horizontally, or diagonally.

### Game Instructions

Zero Gravity Connect Four is played in a playing grid in which there is no gravity; pieces are "pushed" in from any one of the four sides, and based on the direction in which they are pushed, they float to the opposite side of the playing field.

Thus, if you push a piece in from the top, it floats to the bottom. If you push it in from the left, it floats to the right, etc.

When it is your turn, move the mouse to an edge (outside the playing field), and your playing piece will follow your mouse pointer. When the piece is located where you want, click on it to push it into the zero gravity playing field.

Players take turns 'dropping' pieces until one player gets four in a row.

The grey squares are barriers, and pieces cannot be pushed through them. Note that the placement of the barriers varies from game to game.

When you begin the game, you have the option of choosing how many barriers will be in the grid. Barriers are randomly placed within a quadrant and then mirrored across the axes, so the number of barriers is a multiple of four. Barriers can make the game interesting, but they can also make it nearly impossible to win, so don't be surprised if choosing a large number of barriers makes for a challenging game!
