OverviewOverview

HyperDot is a dodging game, where you control a small circle and must move to avoid collisions with other shapes. It sounds too simple to be fun, but the cover design and variation in challenge make it a really enjoyable game.

You work your way through 100 different levels in the main game. Sometimes the visuals are different (like playing in the dark or on ice) and sometimes the mechanics change, like time only moving forward when you move (like Superhot. The difficulty grows but so does the intrigue with each new style of challenge.

There's a multiplayer mode where you compete with up to four people to see who can last the longest. Players can join and leave when they want which makes it easy to play in a family. There's even a level editor to make your own challenges.
