In the above screen, you can see that I have already linked 6 dots shown in green. As I was still holding my mouse button at the time of the screenshot, the dots haven’t popped yet. As soon as you release the mouse button, the dots will pop. You can see the dots left for removing and remaining moves at the top center of the screen. The game can also be paused at any time via the pause button at the top right. The aim is to link as many dots as possible in one move. Once a level is completed, you will be shown your score in the screen below.
