For as much time as I don’t have to waste, I still always look for fun games to kill time when I do have it. Mostly while smoking a cigarette or waiting for someone, is when I get my “gaming” in. So when looking for games to kill a few minutes here or there can be a somewhat tedious task. You don’t want to get too deeply involved in a game, because it could be interrupted at almost any time.

When I came across SwappyDots, I was rather intrigued. I’ve always been a fan of these quick games that only take a few minutes of my time and don’t last too long. On top of that, I like having a game that brings me back over and over again. SwappyDots does just that and more.


The premise of the game is basically just swap the dots around to create a match of at least 3 dots, while creating a chain reaction. There are also added bonuses of bonus dots that add either time or moves to the game, depending upon which game mode you are playing at the time.


Starting the game is really simple, as you just jump straight into whatever game mode you want, since SwappyDots is really easy to get the hang of. Once you select which mode you want, just start tapping away. There’s an open space where you must your dots into and around, and this is how you get create those various combos.

When you run into those bonus dots, which give you either bonus time or moves, there is a black dot that replaces it. Match three or more of those up, and you get a super combo, which not only adds a few extra moves, but also has a score multiplier attached. Like I said, it’s an easy game to get the hang of.

This game is perfect to kill a couple minutes here or there and even if you have more time to play, SwappyDots is still a lot of fun. The version we reviewed today is the ad-supported version, but there is an IAP that allows you to remove ads for a little more than $1.
