The addictiveTwo Dots is built on a simple premise: clear the dots, meet the goals and progress to the next level. Of course, it’s not that simple. You have a limited number of moves and sometimes a seemingly impossible goal to hit. You have to join a minimum of two dots of the same colour to clear them, and only in horizontal and vertical lines, no diagonals allowed. It gets progressively more difficult as you work your way through the levels, which leaves you trying to work around obstacles on the board, anchors that “drop” and awkwardly shaped boards that make it difficult to clear dots. There are helping hands. Creating a closed square of the same colour will clear every dot of that colour on the board, in a single move. Creating bombs out of dots will also help clear your way. Every time you fail to clear a level you lose a life, and you only get five – unless you want to pay, so use them wisely. Lives replenish over time. Beautifully designed and as addictive as Candy Crush.
