DodgeDot™ at $0.99 - Give it a try!

We at Jampaq are happy to announce that our new game, DodgeDot™ is just $0.99 at the iTunes Store now, to celebrate our release.

We think it's a game that you'll be surprised by. It's both very simple, yet rich in variability as you play.

The game was designed to embody the very best qualities of classic and timeless arcade games for the touch capabilities of the iPhone and iPod Touch.**It was also designed to appeal to a very broad audience, and it has proven popular with players as young as 3 1/2 all the way to age 88, and has been popular with men and women players.

Each Sunday at midnight before Monday a new round is begun, all the initial positions, sizes, velocities, and directions of the dots on each level are newly randomized.**Player rankings for the previous round are frozen and displayed for the week, all-time rankings are recalculated, and a new ranking list is begun for the new weekly round.**This provides fresh competition each week, while giving players a week to learn the starting patterns for each level and work out their scoring strategies for levels.

The exclusive Jampaq Network, which was developed by Jampaq to support DodgeDot™ and subsequent games, is free to join, allows players to have their own profiles, and incorporates a very simple Following and Followers format, which makes keeping track of competition among friends simple and fun.

1) Games time runs for 30 minutes

2) The Player begins with 3 Lives

3) Clear the field by dragging the moving colored dots to matching colored goals to score and advance to the next Level. There are an unlimited number of Levels.

4) Avoid dragging and colliding with dots of unmatching color (loses 50% Health and leaves a barrier for the rest of the level)

5) Avoid dragging and contacting goals of unmatching colors (loses 25% Health and releases one wandering Death Dot for every goal error that has occurred in the game).

6) Join dots of the same color to earn bonus points.

7) Each Level has a Runout Period that equals five seconds for every dot present at the beginning of the Level. Dot values decrease as the the Runout Period elapses. A Level must be cleared by the end of the Runout Period or no points will be earned and the Level will have to be replayed. Each Dot Join pauses the Level's Runout Period for five seconds.
