Ratings and Reviews
The concept of the game is a good one and quite simple, it’s basically a connect-the-dots, minus the creation of a picture and plus some added obstacles. The only instructions given are to move your finger around at the bottom of the screen, and as a result your node thing moves. Once you lose, either by not connecting to the next dot in a given time or by hitting an orange obstacle, the game over screen has two buttons: an ad symbol and an upwards arrow. The ad is pretty self-explanatory, but what is the arrow supposed mean?? It restarts the level, but how is an arrow supposed to symbolize that?
And then there’s the settings. The gear icon is below the starting place of your node, but you can’t tap on it to open it. You have to move your node down the the icon as if it were a dot to connect to. This seems like a smart idea I’m theory, by it’s never explained that that’s how you open settings. Once you do, you have a ton of buttons that are only symbols and have no words—except for the “no ads” in-app purchase, of course, because the developer wanted it to be VERY obvious how to give them your money. Some of the symbols include a yin yang, which has no explanation, and a stack of two rounded-corner squares with an curved arrow wrapped around them. When I tap on it, it asks me to enter my Apple ID without explaining what it’s for.
As I said, the game concept is good, but it could be greatly improved with clearer controls and instructions.
Has Potential, but Still Incredible
The game is simple. It’s a little time-spender for when you have that extra time. It could be better with an actual scoreboard, and more features, but even still, the game isn’t bad. People have been saying it’s boring, but it’s because the game has pattern, and forces you to use your head and think quicker as the levels progress. If you don’t like that, the game isn’t for you, and should just leave. The game doesn’t lag, has smooth frames, and smooth graphics. All in all, it is the perfect foundation for a game, so enjoy it, but if you want more, look else where. I will definitely keep playing this! Thanks.
At first the game seems a bit repetitive, but as you get better there is good progression. I still think there should be an in game shop for the gems though.
In the reviews section there is a large problem with people giving a review too quick, try to get to a score of around 500 and then say whether is is repetitive.
