Connect the Dots with Connect:Classic
As our smartphones and tablets grow more and more powerful with each passing generation, mobile gaming titles have similarly evolved to the point where they would seem right at home on a PC or console of only a couple of generations prior. But sometimes, you want to get away from all of the gory giblets and fancy graphics in modern FPS games, and instead play something a bit more mentally stimulating. This is where puzzle games like Connect:Classic by XDA Forum Member adrian_dsl come in.
As one would imagine from its name, the goal of Connect:Classic is to connect dots of similar colors that are on your game screen. And just like the old game Numberlink, you are only able to connect dots with single, continuous paths that cannot branch off or cross over each other. To keep things interesting, the game keeps track of the amount of time it takes to solve each puzzle, and rewards stars accordingly. Connect:Classic also keeps you hooked with its 1500 free levels–ranging from the incredibly easy to legitimately hard puzzles. Finally, all of this is wrapped into a minimalist and modern-looking UI that is a pleasure to look at.
Head over to the game thread to get started connecting dots and giving your brain a fun and casual workout.
