Introduction

Hit the Dot is an iPhone and iPad game that will test your speed, accuracy, and patience as you attempt to hit the dots as they appear on the screen, so get your thumbs at the ready because it’s time to smash some dots!

Play Against Your Friends

Hit the Dot includes a total of five different game modes such as Survival, Time Attack, and Speed Tapping, with the former requiring you to keep tapping the dots to prevent more than five from appearing at a time. How long do you think you can last?

I’m also pleased to see that the developer has included a two-player mode called Dot Attack as this allows you to split the screen into two and then try and keep up with your friends. You’ll probably want to play this mode on an iPad as I can see things getting very messy with the small display of an iPhone!
