The goal is simple; connect same-colored dots vertically and horizontally in your choice of timed or moves mode. Stockpile dots along the way to gain power-ups and themes.
• TIMED: Can you beat the clock? Connect as many same-colored dots as you can in 60 seconds
• MOVES: An un-timed moves based mode; kick back & take your time making the right moves
• ENDLESS: Relax and play; the no-limits, gravity shuffling mode of Dots
• TIME STOP: Pause time for five seconds, or add five extra moves. Perfect for racking up those final dots!
• SHRINKER: Remove a single dot from the game board
• EXPANDER: Remove all of the same colored dots from the game board

Latest update is awful
I have loved this app for the 3 years that I've owned and loyally played it, but this most recent update is so awful, I've knocked off two stars and probably won't play again unless it changes back. The app now loads very slowly, as do all of the pages within the app, where it used to be very zippy. For example, getting in to the 'Challenges' page, you can't scroll until it loads thumbnails of all the challengers. It's also very slow to respond to the back button in any page. This is on my 5th Gen iPod touch using iOS 8.4 (latest), which is plenty fast to run all other games. They also added an extra animation to the dots so they don't just fall, they also bounce, which makes gameplay annoying. This is not a complicated game, I don't know why they made it so unnecessarily complicated / slow!!?? Also, it forgot all of my color settings, which is just annoying and seems like a nudge to try to get me to buy the 'designer' color feature. No thanks.
Love both 30-moves and Endless Dots
I like strategy games, but not speed games. If the 30-moves option wasn't available, I wouldn't have this game.
That said, the 30-moves option is there, and I am totally addicted to it. I LOVE it. I haven't multiplied out all the permutations of possible games because I'm too busy playing...but I am pretty sure I am unlikely to see the same start of a game twice.
I could probably do nothing but eat, sleep, and play this game all the rest of my time.
Get it! Buy the very cheaply priced Endless option. It's great to have when you're too tired
to strategize :-)
My only PROBLEM WITH THE LATEST RELEASE IS THAT I CAN't find anyway to change the size now. Previously there was a size 1, 1.5 , and 22. Now I can't play on my iPad because it's too big.
Update changed things
LOVE this game, but after the latest update, the dots fall at a much slower pace than before. This is infuriating and cumbersome; I can't score as high now that the dots falling alone take up so much time. The new backgrounds included in the update are very nice, but if they interfere with the speed of the game itself, then I'd be more than willing to sacrifice them. Please bring the old speed of the game back!!
