Kill Time by Connecting the Dotdots

If you’re a fan of games similar to Bejeweled and Candy Crush Saga, packed with color, simplicity, and addictiveness, you most definitely want to check out XDA Forum Member lordjone‘s Dotdot for Android.

Dotdot puts a slight twist on the familiar game play of Candy Crush Saga, because much like many other ‘match 3′ games, the aim of the game is to connect as many dots of the same color horizontally, vertically, diagonally or any combination of the three, to achieve the highest score. The high score is calculated by the number of different dots you’ve collected during the 90 seconds time limit runs out.

One of Dotdot’s notable features is its extensive social integration. It has a leaderboard and achievement features that are synced with your Google+ account, and allows for the synchronization of achievements and saving and loading of your current progress to cloud. Dotdot is also one of the first few games adopting the the recently introduced Google Games services.

However it’s the design philosophy pursued by lordjone in Dotdot that’s quite the stand-out. With a Holo-like simplicity with pops of color, it is the direct antithesis of Candy Crush Saga, which can be considered ‘colors on steroids.’ There are also multiple themes designed by the community, and the background color can also be chosen from a Hex color palette.

So next time you have some good old time to kill, whip out your phone and try something a bit different with Dodot. It’s free from the Play store, ad-free, and compatible with Honeycomb and later. Check out the original thread for more details.
