Dominate is a logic puzzle that uses a standard 'double six' set of 28 dominoes. The puzzle board represents all of the 28 dominoes from 0:0 to 6:6 placed next to each other in a 7 by 8 grid. The problem is, you can't see which squares join to which others to form the dominoes.
Your task is find those links, by applying logic to determine a layout for the entire board such that each domino is used only once.
+ Auto-generated boards
+ An almost limitless number of puzzles
+ Inbuilt solver provides hints and a target time to beat

TIMING & HINTS:
Dominate rates each puzzle it generates to give you a target time, the faster you are the higher your score. If you're stuck you can ask for a hint, but the better you get, the more hints will cost you.
If all you want to do is solve puzzles and you don't care how long it takes, that's cool, you will still be able take advantage of the virtually limitless number of puzzles in the game.

Ratings and Reviews
Instant classic, a cross between sudoku and dominos
This is my favorite iOS game, by far.
The rules that are simple, but there is much strategy under the surface. Although the game looks like dominos, the thinking needed to solve it is similar to that in sudoku.
The tutorial is good, but the hints are an even better way to learn because they come just when you need them.
Each new version has been better than the previous one. The latest version adds a better point assignment system; previous updates made the interface much nicer.
This should be considered one of the all-time great computer games. It is too bad it is only on iOS.
Looks simple but quite challenging
In this game, it looks quite simple, but it’s not; it’s quite challenging. All 28 dominoes have been placed in a 7x7 square grid, but you can’t see the edges of the individual dominoes, so you can’t tell which two numbers go on a single domino. It’s your job to figure out where each individual domino is. The logic is much like Sudoku. It’s I’d give it 5 stars if its hints included help with where you have made mistakes. It looked like some hints were wrong, but that might have been a result of my having made prior mistakes. It also needs some way to help you track when you’ve narrowed down the possibilities.
I need a twelve-step program to kick this habit...
If you're into logic games, this one is fantastic, and sickeningly addictive. It's a little challenging at first (I'm okay with that - this usually means I probably won't get tired of it, and this has proven to be oh-so true with this game), but once you get the logic behind it, it's play, play, play! (OMG - make me stop!) The one thing I wish they'd add is the ability to restart a game, or even just a way to wipe the board with one click, so I don't have to undo it all manually. I see in the update that there are now undo arrows, but that still seems to just undo a step at a time. Once I've followed a particular rabbit trail to nowhere, I'd like to be able play the same board, but from scratch. Thanks for this really marvelous game!!
