Sometimes the most simplest of games can be the most entertaining. For example, take this super-humongous iOS hit game from Playdots, Inc. It features a white board with plenty of pretty dots and your task is to simply connect the dots with the matching colors. Unlike Bejeweled or Candy Blitz, there are no fancy jewels or candies to match, and there are certainly no fancy frills and ornamental decks to dazzle you. It’s a plain and simple game of matching tiny little colored dots within a specific time or within a certain number of moves.
In just over 3 months after its release on the iOS platform, Dots has managed to reach #1 in over 20 countries, is the Top iPhone app in over 30 countries, and has been played over 1 billion times. Staggered by all these facts and figures? Well, starting today, Android gamers the world over can get a piece of the action because this best seller is now available for free in the Play Store.
Dots features two game modes; Time based, where you have to match as many colored dots as you can within 60 seconds; and Moves based mode, where you have to match as many colors as you can in 30 moves. The game also has power ups that help boost your scores in the form of Expanders, Shrinkers, and Time Stops. You can earn these power ups as you play or just hit the store to buy some. Dots also includes an interesting localized multiplayer mode, where you and your friends can play with each other by making a game and passing the device around to your friends for the next shot.
For more global competitions, you can also connect on Twitter and Facebook and chase each others high scores. If that’s not enough good reasons to play Dots, I don’t know what is.
