> to turn them all the same color. There is no time limit, allowing players to
> explore every possible solution to the puzzle and implement a variety of
> strategies for success. Evolution Mode speeds the game up, as waves of
> Honeycombs rise vertically and players must think fast to clear lines of the
> hexagonal panels and keep them from filling the screen. By meeting certain
> gameplay goals in Puzzle and Evolution modes, players will unlock bonus
> content such as special music tracks, visualizers and backgrounds to
