Title: Two Dots
Platform: iOS 6.1 or later
Cost: Free (with in-app purchases)
Just about a year ago I reviewed the addictive and fun game, Dots. Now there’s a sequel, Two Dots, and it’s just as addictive and just as fun. But, you don’t have to take my word for it.

There’s a lot of strategy and critical thinking that has to go into successful playing of Two Dots. That’s what makes it so much fun. Teens, or you, playing the game have to figure out what moves are required in order to get to the objective presented by the game. If objectives aren’t reached lives are lost. If all five lives are lost game play halts for a number of minutes. Who wants to stop when ensconced in the fun? And, if you don’t want to stop then you have to figure out how to meet the objectives. It’s a vicious fun cycle.
Check-out the screencast below to learn more and then try it out yourself and with the teens with whom you work. But, be prepared, all schedules should be clear so that you and the teens are free to play for quite awhile.
