“Dots v1.0” is a very simple, but addicting game that will surely keep you busy for some while. The purpose of this game is pretty much straight forward: you have to connect adjacent dots either by drawing a horizontal or a vertical line in between them in order to complete the square. If you somehow manage to get a square you get an extra turn and so on. The player who manages to end up with the highest number of squares automatically wins the game. Also, this program is very easy to operate and install/uninstall and will not give you a headache.

“Dots v1.0” is fine for multiple players, but unfortunately the same cannot be said to the computer vs. human option. The computer AI is very poorly written and it's nowhere near to being a challenge, I can beat it without breaking a sweat even if I was distracted. The author of this program should improve the computer AI because it's very easy to win and you will get bored quickly (I got bored after I won 16/0 for six straight games).

As a result, I recommend this program to users to wish to use the multiplayer option, since the AI option is just a total waste of time unless you’re playing this game for the first time in your life. Overall, this program is good if you want to play dots with a friend, but not if you want to play alone with the calculator since the AI play is simply ridiculous. I give this program a 6/10.
