How to Play
Two Dots is a very simple game to play. When you open the app you’ll be greeted by two cute little cartoon heads set in a snowy forest, with quirky music playing in the background. This doesn’t have a lot to do with the actual game play but it’s a fun way to begin. To get started you simply tap on play and you’ll be taken to the level map where you can choose the level you want to play. There are more than 350 levels, but you can only play ones that you’ve previously completed.
Once you’ve selected your level, you’ll be provided a set of goals for the number of dots you have to connect of each of the game's colors: red, blue, yellow, and green. You can connect dots horizontally and vertically, but not diagonally – there are no limits to the number of dots of the same color you can connect in a row, in fact the more the better. If you manage to connect the required amount of dots for each color in the designated number of moves you get to move on to the next level. It starts off fairly easy, but as the number of dots needing to be connected increase, it gets a lot more challenging.
Two Dots is a simple and fun puzzle game that will keep you entertained for hours. The gameplay is easy to learn but, still challenging and there are over 350 levels. This app is definitely worth checking out.
