TwoDots is the sequel to the smash hit iOS and Android game Dots!, which, after being crowdfunded last year, took off to become a top hit in both app stores. TwoDots brings in a level progression aspect, in a similar manner to Candy Crush Saga, as well as loads of new challenges, but the gameplay will be familiar to fans of the original. Read on for some tips and tricks for TwoDots!
Like most other games of this type, you have up to five lives. Whenever you lose a stage, you lose one of those lives, but every 20 minutes one life will regenerate. Skip this regeneration period by going to the date and time settings on your phone and setting the time ahead for 20 minutes for every life you want to regenerate. Set the time ahead 100 minutes (or an hour and 40) for a full restoration.
Best part is, you can do this as many times as you want without having to set the time ahead by crazy numbers. Once you do the time lapse trick, go to TwoDots and verify that your lives have been restored. Then go to the date and time settings and set the time back to normal. Go back to TwoDots and your lives will still be there.
Your main method of play is to connect dots of the same color that are horizontal or vertical from each other. To remove all of one color on the screen, make a square with at least 4 dots. If you make a square with other dots inside, those other dots will become bombs and will blow up the surrounding dots.
The way to get the highest possible score is to finish with a number of moves left over. If you have at least 5 moves left over, the last five moves will turn various dots on the screen into bombs, causing them to blow up surrounding dots. Any move left over beyond the fifth move will simply earn you extra points and be counted down. The more moves left over, the better.
If you don’t like the starting dots that you got, then go to the menu screen and hit restart. Do this before even making one single move because if you restart without having made a move, you will not lose any lives. If you have already made one or more moves, you’ll lose a life.
