- Is that all? Nothing else, really?
A simpler match-3 variant
It's hard to start this review without having that old Nokia catchline on mind, but what you have to know anyway is that you're just about to play one of the simplest and most addictive games so far. We won't talk about graphics, because they are nothing else than color dots on a white screen; or sound, which is a recompilation of bleeps and bloops. It's all about gameplay, the old match-three-of-a-kind gameplay without needing to match three at all, you can connect just two dots as long as they share the same color.
Game's about getting the highest possible score in sixty seconds, that's all. If you prefer, you can change the game mode to getting the highest score with a certain number of moves and let the clock aside, it's up to you to play wittier or brainier.
To ice the cake, there's a "local multiplayer" mode (a hotseat mode indeed) and some purchaseable power-ups. Great game, based on the most basic premises. Enjoyable by anyone, anytime.
The task is simple; connect as many same-colored dots as you can in 60 seconds. Get competitive by connecting Twitter and Facebook to see your friends' scores on the High Scores list. Check out Endless Mode, the no-limits, gravity shuffling mode of Dots. An un-timed, moves based mode is available; kick back and take your time while planning strategic moves. You can also prove that you are better at Dots than your friends with our local Multiplayer mode. Play a board then pass to a friend for an ultimate one on one showdown.
Each dot you earn can be spent on Power Ups. When used wisely, Power Ups can have a big impact on boosting your score! Get more dots for every dot removed from a game, or, if you're short on time, you can buy them.

Major battery drain when idle. Please fix.
Needs to learn to eat less battery, and it always crashes when I'm exiting it. When this will be fixed, I promise to rate it with 5 stars
It keeps Crashing
Update on update: Dots has turned a real battery eater. 4 hours of power left, played one game, then quit: battery dead 15 minutes later. Addicting to play, whether for one game or many. Fun, but at least once every other game misinterprets a movement (an
