As May draws to a close and June promises new things from Apple, the perpetual flow of great apps continues this week. We join the kids as they visit Toca Town, take on the Dots sequel, clip all the things for Evernote and so much more. It is time for the apps of the week for May 31st, 2014.
If you recall Dots, the game that took over many lives, thanks to its simple, addictive flair for fun. The developers are back, bring much of what we loved about the first version. The game is still largely about connecting things, with dots, yetis, squids and more. Couple the gameplay with a brilliant minimalistic design and relaxing music, which sets the tone for hours of fun.
Two Dots brings a story line, without our lovable dots on a mission. You’ll embark on an adventure that includes 85 levels. You’ll connect dots, make bombs, extinguish flames and other new features found in the sequel. The game is free, but in-app purchases are there for those who need that extra power up, lives or bomb.
If you played Dots, TwoDots is a worthy successor. If you haven’t played either, that’s two great games available today that is a sure fire way to kill a few hours.
