Get ready!

Tapping on the screen causes the rotating dot to take a step. If you wait long enough for the circling dot to perform two complete rotations, the level ends.

Patterns

You're rewarded with patterns after earning so many points. The pattern in the middle of the screen was earned at 20 points.

The about screen is the only additional screen found within the app. Everything else revolves around ads or the various levels.
