A simple game you can't stop playing

Dots (iOS | Android) is a simple, yet very well-designed color-matching game that doesn't dazzle you with tons of features or game types, but is still incredibly addictive.

The object of the game is simple: connect same-colored dots to clear them from an ever-refilling board to get the highest score possible in 1 minute. You do this by connecting as many dots as possible horizontally or vertically, and by making squares with your finger to make them disappear. Your score is counted by how many dots you eliminate in 60 seconds.

The game initially will remind you of Bejeweled, but with an elegant, minimalist graphical style. The all-white background makes the primary colors of the dots stand out. Simple bouncing animations as dots fall add to the overall feel, while musical notes chime with each extra dot you connect together in a chain.
