Splashy Dots isn't just a game, it's the saviour of the universe. OK, so universe might be a bit of a stretch, but certainly the saviour of those tedious commutes and times stood waiting around for your friends to turn up.
That’s because this paint-heavy puzzler is a head-scratching, boredom-busting joy that’s as engaging to play as it is easy on the eye.
The premise behind Splashy Dots is a simple one; drag your finger to join up the dots of paint, creating an artistic path from the start point to that hollow end dot. In practice, however, things are a little trickier, taxing your brain into thinking logically, and at times illogically, to solve the increasingly fiendish puzzles.
All dots must be covered in your smear-heavy trail, and there’s no doubling back. This creates the sort of confusion that will frustrate you to your core while keeping a smile plastered across your face.
Not only do you get a sense of achievement at puzzling out the harder levels, but once you’ve found the right route, your paint-splattered mess – sorry, artistic creation – is available as a framed image to add to your in-game gallery.
