4 in a Row

Available on the App Store

The classic game that's easy to understand, but hard to master. Your goal is to connect a line of four horizontal, vertical, or diagonal chips before your opponent does. But watch out, it can be trickier than it sounds!

Play against the computer on your iPhone or iPod Touch, another player on the same device, or for maximum fun, another player with their own iPhone or iPod Touch on the same wireless network.

4 in a Row is the perfect game to play against friends, or any time you have a few minutes to spare.

Basic Gameplay

Each player takes turns choosing a column to drop a chip in. Your goal is always to align four chips of your own color in a row, either vertically, horizontally or diagonally. The first player to do so wins the game. You may restart or exit a game at any point. Undo is available in case you mistakenly hit the wrong column, but only for your last move.

One Player Mode

In one player mode, you play against the computer. You can set the level of difficulty in the preferences, which you can get to by touching the gear button on the main screen. Currently there are only two difficulty settings, but more will be coming in the future.

Two Player Mode

Two player mode allows two people to play against each other using the same phone. Just take turns touching the column you would like to drop your chip in. The game will let you know who's turn it is as you play.

Wireless Mode

To play wirelessly, you must have two iPhones or iPod Touches on the same wireless network. One player creates a game by selecting Wireless from the game types, touching Start, then choosing Create Game. The second player then joins the wireless game by selecting Wireless, touching Start, and choosing Join Game. This will cause the game to start.
