Circle Dots by Kijug Software is a simple but addictive little game that will challenge your reflexes and keep you coming back for more. When I started playing this one I was convinced it was too easy, but I sound found out that wasn’t the case at all. Games like this prove the point that games don’t have to be highly sophisticated to be a lot of fun; in fact, these types of games can often be more fun than a lot of games with sophisticated 3D rendering technology. There’s something to be said for keeping things simple, and the developer of this game has come up with a winner by taking this approach. This is a free app and it’s compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
There are all kinds of simple games in the App Store that are highly addictive and they usually have a couple things in common. The graphics are very basic and the strategy is very simple. Some of them feature cute little simple characters and some of them rely on basic geometric shapes only. Circle Dots fits into this latter category and the only thing you’ll have to contend with in this one are circles and dots. It may be a simple game to play, but it gets a lot more difficult the further along you go.
What surprised me about this game is that it didn’t include any ads ad all: it really is a free game in the truest sense. This is extremely refreshing and highly unusual. It also features Game Center integration so that you can test your abilities against players from around the world. It makes things a lot more interesting, and it’s always nice to see how good you really are. This app will require 2.6 MB of available space on your iOS device.
How to Play
The premise of Circle Dots is simple. As the dots fly towards the center of the screen they will pass through a circle. If you tap on the screen they will disappear from the screen and you can continue with your game. If you tap on the screen before they enter the circle, or if they pass through the circle before you tap on the screen it’s game over. You don’t have to tap on the circle itself since anywhere on the screen will do.
This game may sound too easy but it’s anything but, for a couple of reasons. The more dots you make disappear the quicker they start flying at you. The other problem is that the circle continues to shrink the longer you last as well! It gets pretty difficult to time your taps right when the circle itself is barely bigger than the dots. This game may be simple, but it’s not easy and it’s a whole lot of addictive fun.
Circle Dots is one of the most addictive little games to be released for the iOS platform for quite some time. It’s a simple, yet addictive little time waster that will keep you coming back time and again. If you’re looking for a good way to kill a couple of hours you should definitely check out Circle Dots.
