Prometheus harkens back to the old arcade days and the game Qix. Your job is to claim sections of the board by enclosing it in a shape drawn by the diamond-shaped controller. While you do so, you must avoid the sparks and the collection of shifting, rotating lines that moves around the game screen.

Sparks also appear if you claim your territories too slowly. Contacting either the sparks or the lines causes your controller to explode. Every level, you are told how much territory you need to claim to win. This number starts out at 55% and goes up a small increment with each level. You must get this number or higher to win that round.

Areas you claim are colored in, while free areas are black. This game has a high scores table. ~ Lisa Karen Savignano, All Game Guide
