Dots by Betaworks Suggests Simplicity is Always In

Dots by Betaworks brings gaming back to the basics; it is essentially Bejeweled and even Candy Crush stripped down to the simplest form. This minimalist game has seen tremendous success within the first 16 days of its launch with already 100 million plays and 2 million addicted users.

The goal of the game is to connect two or more dots of the same color by swiping up, down, left or right. You are given one minute to get as many points as you can.

I don't know about you, but the screen-crowding hectic graphics of today's video games frighten me. Visually, the simplicity of this game reminds me of the old-school game Snake, only this 36-dot grid is full of cute colors. With many game apps looking like virtual jungles or war-zones, Dots stands out with its clean visuals. Stats for Minimalist Phone Games Trending: Older & Chilly
