Circle The Dot
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This is a simple game with simple rules. Just trap the the blue dot within the matrix of circles. This is one smart dot though...
Just tap on the gray dots and they will turn to orange. The blue dot is blocked by these orange dots.
Surround the blue dot with the orange dots before it escapes!
But is it even possible?

Reply to David Gibson's review
This game is amazing, dude. The excellent AI for the blue ball may make the game difficult, but once you get a good, clean strategy, it becomes relatively easy. I beat the dot on about 1/2 of my rounds. At first, I liked your review because you were just warning the players that the game is difficult, which is true. However, when I read on, you tended to get really mad at the developers. It's not their fault the game is hard. The difficulty just means they are very good programmers who want to give a challenge to the players. Don't worry, I'm not calling you stupid. I'm calling you over reactive. Please do not write comments or reviews when you are in rage mode. Hopefully, all of you people who have wrongly insulted this game can learn something from this. I've been you on games before, writing rage mode comments left and right, but after realizing that I had only been doing wrong, made it my goal to make the world a better place on this area. That's all I have to say.

Easy to rage at, Fun to master
Alright, there is no denying it, this is a really hard game... If you don't know what you're doing. The AI is tough, seemingly cunning, but slightly predictable. It is true that some levels are simply laid out badly and cant be beaten, but the "load time" is minuscule, so you can simply reload it. On the levels where it *is* beatable, the game is a lot of fun!
My only complaints are that there is no"restart" button readily accessible in the game, and that the AI becomes somewhat predictable. The first of these two is pretty easily fixable by the devs. The second one, however, would be a bit more work, and seems like it would come later in development.
Overall, it's a great game, and those of you raging at the game and asking for it to be removed from the app store should really just delete it from your own devices...
As most others have mentioned, the way this game works makes it unbeatable most of the time. The blue dot will always take the shortest route to the edge of the screen. Placing dots around the blue dot increases the distance between it and the edge of the circle, so it moves away from you in search of a shorter route. The problem with this arises when there are multiple routes that are the same length before you place your dot. This occurs the vast majority of the time, and when it does, the blue dot will always escape no matter what you do. I don't think this is erroneous on the game designers' part. It would be very convenient for a company to make money off of you if they convinced you that "you were so close that time, slugger, give it another go! I know you'll make it next time!" when in actuality there are a set number of times you can win, and every 5 games a clickbait ad shows up (and to be honest, knowing Ketchapp, this doesn't sound too implausible)
