Test your dexterity! Dactyl is an addictive, fast-paced exercise for your fingers. The premise of the game is simple--defuse the bombs before they blow up. Clear your mind and put your fingers to work...

Note: Dactyl 2's first level is approximately the same thing as this app. (There is no penalty in Dactyl 2, however, for stray touches.) To get a feel on where you rank in the world, consult Dactyl 2's leader board for that level.

Also available:
* Dactyl 2
* Dactyl School

I've had this app since iPhone 2g and I'm So happy you updated it I haven't even played it yet but you get 5 stars

Dactyl takes a simple game and makes it fun

It's free, so why not try it, don't blank it. And even if the app was 59p it still would be worth the price.

I hope the developer reads all of these reviews, because I have an idea for an upgrade.

Expand the area, or at least the leyway for the gaps where everything goes orange and you get and instant fail, 9 times out of 10 my games end because my fingers are just too big to hit the bomb with deadly hits. I mean, not too much, but enough to let people with a finger touching the bomb and also partly the danger zone. Instructions and the ablilty to view scores, what about different levels, backgrounds and what about a world score board. The harder levels could be faster bombs appearing etc.

As others have said; this game is brilliant, simple and very addictive! I would like to see an overall score board instead of just a phone board, that way I could really tell how i'm doing! As at the moment I'm only just reaching 200, (thinking this is good - with time I will get better hopefully) but comared to other reviews I've read this is really naff!

I think it is worth noting that everyones entertainment levels are different, so looking at the same interface pressing red lights isn't really for you! However for a reaction game it is simply addictive and I would buy!

Would be nice to see a game menu with different levels and perhaps instructions, as even though, with time you do grasp the rules with missing bombs and not pressing bombs in time, it did take me a while to understand exactly what I was doing wrong, but, again this could just be me!

Excellent, well worth a try! A definate keeper!!!
