Dots is one of the hottest new puzzle games to hit the app store. It’s tearing up the charts with well over 1 Million downloads and 25 million games in the first week. After playing the game for less than an hour, I can understand why it’s so addictive, even if i’m not addicted to it myself.
Dots takes the classic “connect the dots” formula and then adds it’s own unique twist. Connect the dots in the longest strings possible for maximum points in less than 60 seconds. As you accumulate more dots every round you can purchase power ups that will allow you to enrich your game play and enable you to collect more dots. It’s the crack-cocaine cocktail enjoyed by anyone who’s lives have been ruined by Candy Crush and Bejewelled before that.
The visual design and sound effects really add to the charm of this delightful game. Simple share mechanics will enable you to collect power ups even faster, and because it’s such a delightful experience, you’ll be more than happy to share it with everyone you know.
Do I like it?
Personally, I just don’t find the experience addictive enough. I like the simple mechanic and I truly love the design, but it’s not enough game play to keep me entertained for any longer than a loo break.
This game is going to go gangbusters in the mobile charts. Try it for yourself and let us know what you think.
