Fancy free. The best way to describe this new puzzle game, Dots: A Game About Connecting. I say fancy free and mean it in two ways. Number one – it’s a game that relies on it’s beautiful simplicity to give it that edge on other games. Reason B – It’s free to play, probably one of the best thing about this game is the fact that it is free.
Not a lot can really be said about the gameplay except that you, the player have to connect up the same dot colours in a chain as long as possible, unless you make a square. Pro players who make the fabled square will have all the dots of the same colour as the square disappear from the play area. Chains can weave in and out of other colours and the bigger your chain the better your score. See, super simple. You can also buy bonus’ such as freeze the clock. The currency? The dots you’ve collected in previous games. All of this excitement in just 60 seconds. The clock has you frantically looking around for your next best move.
What I have enjoyed the most about this little game when playing it is the sound. There is none, well not until you start making those chains, the higher the chain the louder the noise. The noises by themselves would be annoying but manage to compliment the game so that you can tell when you’re making a good chain. The other thing I like is the distinct lack of push notifications. There are none, and it’s like the game is just like “Don’t worry, I’ll be here when you need me. Go play Angry Birds, honestly no I don’t mind.” It’s a game that hasn’t taken it’s self to seriously and has been stripped down to just be a great little pick-me-up game. Simply perfect, fancy free.

Betaworks One Inc. are the company behind this game and should be really proud of it. It’s a number one game in 8 different countries, and at the moment sits at number two here in the UK on the free to play charts. Another thing to make a point of is how new it is, 30th April. That’s not many days and so far it’s a great success story.
If you want to start connecting the dots for yourself and try this utterly brilliant game you can follow the link to get it for your iOS device – Dots: A Game About Connecting. There’s no concrete information on Dots for Android, but I would make an assumption that it will eventually come your way Android users, if it’s iOS success is anything to go by.
