Wildly popular game Dots comes to Android and Kindle Fire

After notching nearly one billion games played on iOS, Dots comes to the Android platform to snare more addicts.

Android users say goodbye to your idle time and hello to Dots.

Roughly three months after its iOS debut, the wildly popular brain game Dots has come to the Android platform.

The puzzler from Playdots, Inc., which entices players to connect as many same-color dots as possible, is now available for Android devices and Kindle Fire tablets and features multiple game modes. This first non iOS release includes single player and multi-player options as well as a new un-timed Moves mode. Rather than racing against the clock, players have 30 moves to use as strategically as possible.

Chances are good that you've seen your iOS-toting friends playing this maddeningly addictive game this summer. Reportedly, the last few months have been kind to Dots, having garnered more than 5 million installs and nearly one billion games played. Thanks to its simple play anytime premise I say it isn't much of a stretch to forecast millions of installations on Android phones and tablets in the near future.

Eager to give Dots a spin for yourself? Dots is available for free in the Google Play Store and Amazon Appstore and includes support for nearly one dozen languages.
