Dotspi Halloween puts a fresh, Halloween themed skin over the simplistic graphics of the original Dotspi which like the smooth edge of circles it employed, utilized a minimalistic approach in its graphics and game play.
The task in Dotspi Halloween like Dotspi is as simple and clean as its graphics, though there are no directions in-game, just a few buttons that include a volume, leader board, and play. Never-the-less, players will quickly pick up that they need to simply tap as many monsters, such as zombies, jack-o-lanterns, witches, mummies, werewolves, and vampires, as they can in order to gain points. There is a prompt beast at the top, indicating the type of monster that needs to be tapped and cleared from the board, and players can only tap on the type of monster requested by the prompt beast. The prompt beast randomly changes once all of the proceeding prompt beast’s related monsters are cleared, and this serves to keep players on their toes. Players can also accept challenges if they have fiends playing the game, or simply compete to snare their place among the top scores.
Dotspi Halloween offers 3 lengths of time in which to complete the task of tapping as many monsters as players can, including 60, 40 and 20 second timers. However, there is only one logical choice: the 60-second time. There seems to be no benefit in choosing either the 40 or 20 second timer, for the 60 second timer gives players 20 to 40 additional seconds and the score at the end is compared to the same pool of leader board scores, which it shares with the original Dotspi, and with no indication that the player got a top score in 20 seconds versus 60. On top of this, all dots are equal to 1 point regardless of which of the three timed modes the player selects. So unless a player wants to place a severe handicap on themselves, there seems to be little point, and certainly no reward for choosing the shorter timers. Furthermore, there is no reward system in place, nor extra points for clearing a page, only individual monsters.
Unlike the original Dotspi, which suffered losing a potion of its audience automatically by excluding those with Protanopia, Trianopia and Deuteranopia (colorblindness) which effects between 1% to around 5% of the population, Dotspi Halloween has several unique looking monsters and does not rely on colors alone to differentiate them.
Overall, Dotspi Halloween is a simple and clean game, but with simplicity comes the risk of players losing interest. It’s certainly worth a try, especially for horror-genre buffs or those who want a cute Halloween treat, but unless seeking to obtain a high score or challenge friends, players will most likely find that there is little to keep them playing, as the game play can become tedious and repetitive.
