TwoDots has been launched in reply to the highly popular Dots game. this game now comes with Levels, obstacles and objectives! The creaters also make it a challenge by limiting the number of moves.
1. Infinite Lives
If you run out of lives then simply change your time ahead by 2 hours, make sure you restart the game.
2. Restarting level without losing a life
you can’t restart whilst in game play, but if you don’t like the board, simply restart he game to find a better playing board.
3. Bottoms up!
Working from the bottom gives you the best odds of finding a match or bringing down new dots you’ll need. Focus on making squares and connecting large formations at the bottom.
Think of it this way, if you connect two dots at the very top, only those two dots will be replaced. However, connecting two dots at the bottom causes the entire board and two columns to shift down one. This could make the change you need for a larger combo.
4. Your first move sets the tone for the whole round
This goes along with my very first tip. If you have a good board sitting in front of you, be sure not to waste it! Evaluate the board carefully and make a good first move. If there is a square present on the board, you almost always want to take it before anything else. Avoid Z patterns and L patterns as they normally cause more mismatches than anything else. Stay diagonal or vertical for your first move if you can’t clear a square right off the bat.
5. It’s hip to be a square
Not only is a square typically your best first move, it’s almost always your best move period. The larger square you make, the more it’ll impact your score, so always be on the lookout for larger squares when you can. Even though it clears the same amount of dots, go big whenever you can for the highest score possible.
6. Bombs are your best friend in anchor levels
To create a bomb, you’ll need to create a square that contains one lonely dot in the center. The square will remove all dots of the same color on the board while the middle dot will explode and clear anything remaining around it. This is a great strategy to use on anchors since you could potentially end up exploding more than one anchor at a time. It also eliminates the need to worry about bringing it all the way to the bottom anymore. That saves you time and precious moves you may need later.
7. Pay attention to how dots behave in each level
In some levels there are obstacles and twists and turns that will cause dots to take a path that isn’t straight down. Pay particular attention to how dots fall in these levels as it’ll be key to forming squares, which should always be your main goal. Use this in conjunction with my tip of working from the bottom and you’ll be in good shape.
8. Try to avoid isolating single colors under anchors
Getting a lonely dot stuck underneath an anchor is the worst. You’ll most likely need several moves to rectify the problem and get the anchor where it needs to be. The only other solution is to make a square of the same color in order to clear it. That can also prove difficult when you only have a few moves left. The best practice is to always make sure dots underneath an anchor have a mate. That makes them super easy to clear when the anchor starts to reach the bottom.
9. Intentionally cause a re-shuffle
There may not be a shuffle button in TwoDots, per-say. That doesn’t mean you can’t purposely make some moves that leave no possible matches left on the board. This is sometimes your best hope if you’ve got quite a few moves left but a crap board in front of you. Unless you haven’t made a single move yet and can restart, forcing a reshuffle can sometimes save the day. So when you don’t see another way of making squares or any worthwhile moves, aim for a reshuffle instead.
10. Keep an eye out for sandwiched dots
There are some patterns in TwoDots that are worth remembering. The most useful of all of them is the alternating, or sandwiched, dots that are paired with mates. For example, if you have two red dots that are sandwiched by two green dots, immediately clear the two green dots in order to make a square with the red dots. This type of pattern occurs a lot and is the easiest way to form squares.

What is a bomb in the game?
Bombs are created as a result of making a square that surrounds a dot. Once the square clears, bombs then “explode” the surrounding dots. Bombs and five extra moves can also be purchased at the end of some levels should you need them to beat the level.
