I'm really liking the lofi look of DIRAC.
Is there a sort of story somewhere in the game or is it a score chaser?

Does not commute had nice story bits and I prefer story based games, but the look is really tempting.

Nah, it's just a high score chaser.

I'll be buying this because it's by Mediocre + I'd like to pretend that I understood the app description.

High-speed line drawing at its best. Interesting is, after a few plays I realized speed is not everything in this game... Beautiful presentation. I really suck at speed games, but I keep trying.

Now playing: Mekorama, Space Grunts, Patchwork, Knightmare Tower, Smash Hit, Open Bar!
Waiting for: Nyheim, Onirim

Like the old QIX ?

What do you exactly do in the game?
You have to circle the colored dots?

I know right?! I got about half way through then just skimmed the rest. Makes no sense! Haha looks sweet though.

Oh yes, Qix. Hours spent on the gameboy back then.

And yes, I'm right with Andy C83 here, if it's Mediocre, it's instabuy for me.

You connect same-color dots. Lots of them, before they escape. Better, you encircle the central molecule or whatever it is. Still better you manage to encircle the "asteroids" which appear from the border on collision course with the central nucleus. Hope that helps. Feels like Collision Effect in reverse (a lame comparison, I know).
