Connecting the dots with the Windows Phone puzzle game Pop The Dots

Pop The Dots is a puzzle game for Windows Phone that has you connecting dots of the same color to reach a scoring goal within a set number of moves or under a time limit.

Pop The Dots has over fifty free levels with the option to unlock more levels through an in-app purchase.  The puzzle game has a casual feel to it and Pop The Dots isn’t a bad choice to pass the time with.

Pop The Dots Main Menus and Level Objective

The main menu with Pop The Dots has options to jump into the game, access the game’s settings (sound on/off) and unlock the full range of levels via in-app purchase ($2.49).  The purchase will also eliminate the ad-support.

Depending on the gaming level, you will have to achieve a predetermined score in a set number of moves or set time limit.  You also have levels that challenge you to collect set numbers of the colored dots within a move or time limit.  Game play is the same regardless of the challenge.

Pop The Dots Game Screens

You have a series of dots on the screen where you must connect the same colored dots to remove them from play and earn points.  Dots must be adjacent and can be connected by dragging your finger horizontally, vertically and diagonally dot to dot.  The only limitation is you cannot move back over an existing connection.

Once connected, the dots disappear, points are earned (or credited to your dot count) and new dots are added from the top of the screen.

While Pop The Dot isn’t a complicated game to play, meeting the challenge for each level gets more intense the further you advance through the game.  It is a fun game and I like the variety of challenges scattered about the gaming levels.  Pop The Dot is a nice gaming choice when you need a little help passing the time.

Pop The Dot is a free, ad-supported game available for Windows Phone 8 and 7.x devices.  You can get rid of the ads and unlock all the gaming levels through a $2.49 in-app purchase.  You can find your copy of Pop The Dots here in the Windows Phone Store.
