Hit the Dot is a simple game designed to be challenging and fun.There is only one action, flick the circle into the dot. The game is the simplest I’ve come across on the AppStore but don’t be fooled. The further you progress the harder it becomes. It can get addictive, so much so that I have spent 30 minutes playing just to try an beat my high score and to see how hard it gets.
The game is pretty basic and simple. You can play on your own or challenge a friend to the high score. You start playing by flicking a little circle at a bigger one. The challenge comes with the timer that runs down through the game and a dot that blocks your path to the larger circle. You will have to bounce off walls to try and get the hit. You can bounce your circle off blocking dots too to get to the larger circle, so strategy comes into play. The path to your target will never always be clear, it’s up to you to flick the circle in the right way. The blocking dots starts to appear in around level 4, progress to about level 12 and more dots appear, and more and more and more and more. You get where I’m going with this, it gets harder because of the blocking dots.
There isn’t really much to say about the game. It gets harder with every successful hit. You will want others to experience the game so it’s an excuse to challenge your friend. It’s a good distraction game, definitely one for the train ride to and from work. If your into simple and fun games then Hit the Dot is the game for you. Hit the Dot – A Simple Flick the Dot cost $0.99 and offer hours of fun if you can progress through the levels.
