Designed for youngsters but reckons itself to be fun for anyone.
Dot Fun is primarily an educational game aimed at a younger audience, but it can be enjoyed by anyone regardless of age! A number of dots burst on to the screen and you connect them using the touchscreen revealing the hidden picture underneath. Once successfully unveiled, the completed imagery features entertaining animations accompanied by amusing sound effects: for example, a soccer ball bounces while being chased by a baby Panda, spaceships streak, robots march, birds in flight, monkey and baby somersault over a jumping tiger, kangaroos hop, penguins and giraffes waddle, elephants and polar bears march across the screen, star spins, images pulsate, and those are just a handful of examples! Sound effects include monkeys, elephants, jungle sounds, bubbles and a variety of pleasant tunes.
At any given time, Dot Fun enables you to shake your device to start a new and different picture from one of three categories: Shapes, Animals and Things. An option is to have the game select imagery randomly from within a category, or randomly from a combination of all categories. At your fingertips you also have a palette from which you can pick the line drawing color, and the option to enable or disable audio. Another option is to use dimmed pictures that become clearly visible using brightness as more lines are drawn by connecting the right dots, and finally an option that displays unconnected lines at any time by touching the screen with two fingers – all options that truly inspire and assist younger children.
Dot Fun from solo-developer Pramod Shanker is an excellent and well-designed educational title suitable for literally everyone, but with focus on the younger audience as it entertains and improves not only concentration but also motor-skills, and provides endless hours of enjoyment! The game supports English, French, Italian, Spanish, German, Norwegian and Korean.
