Dots We Play Dots

From the makers of Dots and Two Dots comes a new but familiar game, Dots & Co. Available for free in the Play Store, Dots & Co is everything that the previous Dots games were and more: beautifully designed, simple but captivating, and made more fun with creative narratives.

Dots and Two Dots saw huge success, with the original game reaching 55 million downloads in a little over a year. Dots & Co is the latest release from the We Play Dots team, and if you’ve played the Dots series before, it will look very familiar.

Just like the previous versions, you link dots to eliminate them. Keep in mind though, you have a limited amount of moves and a designated amount of dots to eliminate for each color. The tricky part is that you can only connect the dots vertically or horizontally (or as a square, which you can use to eliminate the entirety of a specific color).

Compared to Two Dots, things get challenging quite fast on Dots & Co, perhaps because the shape of the board where the dots lay changes from very early on. Overall, however, I found it to be much more engrossing because of its focus on narratives.

Throughout the game, you meet various characters, and as your missions become more complicated, these characters offer special abilities to help you eliminate the dots. Now, you might be wondering, “What happens if you run out of moves?”

Unfortunately, once you’re out of moves, you’ll have to be willing to spend some money. For a dollar or so, you can purchase special powers to help you beat the game.

But to be quite honest, unless you’ve hit an extremely high level or you’ve somehow managed to squander all of your moves, it is unlikely that you’ll need to resort to spending money.

That said, I’ll be getting back to the dot-connecting adventures that await. If you liked Dots and Two Dots, definitely give Dots & Co a try and let us know what you think in the comments below!
