There is something to be said about guided art, but the Skuiggle game rejects this concept and instead favors free and open expression. According to its creator Eric Merz the game was just something that "suddenly happened." Players can instantly see this in the game as the minimalist design, basic gameplay functions and lack of motivation.

However, none of these features seem necessary in Skuiggle. The concept may not be highbrow and the gameplay may not push boundaries, but the game is just incredibly playable and amazingly fun. The Skuiggle game tasks players with playing a dot chasing other dots and leaving a colorful trail behind. Multiplayer is available, but there is no competition or cooperative elements. The chase will lead to a myriad of bright tones on the screen and that seems to the be the end goal of the game. Chasing dots leads to art and that is where the fun lies. Skuiggle is all about creation and it accomplishes that in a beautifully simple way.
