Lumines Wiki

The Timeline (or the Time Line) is the line that sweeps across the playfield. It deletes squares it touches. The timeline makes a full loop in 8 beats of the current track.

When creating a square, the Time Line will start to erase it. When all connected square and/or chain blocks are finished being erased, they will disappear. The player will then earn points, based on how many squares were deleted.

Additionally, the Time Line's speed changes based on the current Skin's BPM.

  • When playing on fast Skins, such as STRANGERS, there will be less time to create squares resulting in breaking a player's Score Bonus, as well as reducing score.
  • When playing on slow Skins, such as Lights, the player must be careful, as too many squares may exceed the playfield height, resulting in a game-over.
