This game is a sequel of the popular Staries game. The rule is similar, you will be given a grid of stars and you can drag a row of stars horizontally or a column of stars vertically, when you stop dragging and 3 or more stars of the same colour are connected, they will be destroyed and new stars will be dropped from above. The lock feature in Staries is removed, and is replaced by a time limit for each level. If you can destroy that many stars within the time limit, then you win and can play the next level. In the game, there will be some special stars which are marked with a time penalty icon. If 3 or more time penalty stars are connected, they will be destroyed but you will suffer a time penalty and the time remaining will be decreased. So do not connect time penalty stars if possible. If you can form groups of 4 or more stars, then you will be awarded a time bonus star. Connecting 3 or more time bonus stars will not only give you some time bonuses, but will also destroy all the time penalty stars on the screen. So try your best to form groups with more than 4 stars to get time bonus stars. As the game progresses, you will need to form more and more stars to clear a level and the game will be harder and harder.
