Dots Puzzle 1.0 iPhone App


The Dots Puzzle ( full name Dastardly Doctor Devio's Disturbingly Diabolical Dots ) is a delightfull cerebral diversion to designed to give your brain a bit of exercise. All you have to do is turn all the dots white by tapping them. But there is a catch - tapping a dot toggles all the dots it is connected to, not the dot you tap!
The Dots Puzzle app only works on iPhones and iTouch. More info at iTunes store. (You might not be able to view the iTunes store if you don't have a mac)
