Since Dots was released on April 30, it has been downloaded more than three million times and users have played 250 million games, according to a blog post the company put out Thursday morning. As the company points out, that’s the equivalent of about 500 years of gameplay. That’s pretty impressive considering it has only been one month.
In many ways, Dots is perfectly designed to be addictive. The game’s interface is colorful and unique, but simple enough for anyone to figure out in a few seconds. Each round users play lasts for just 60 seconds, which creates an adrenaline rush and, of course, the desire to start again as soon as the round ends. Perhaps most importantly, Dots creates a customized leader board based on your Twitter and Facebook connections, and encourages users to share out their high scores, which makes the game that much more sharable.
