In order to achieve the 1CC coveted by the fans of the genre.
The Line mode offers to players the possibility to fight an enemies horde, trying to reach a line which go up progressively. If an Enemy join the line or if the line reach the top of the screen, the player lose the game. Each enemy killed will make the line to go down a bit.
