Top 10 Tricks for TwoDots

Dots: A Game About Connecting has just received a sequel; TwoDots!


I am here to share with you my strategy guide for the game, together with some useful TwoDots cheats, tips and tricks that will help you beat each of the levels, get the three star ratings and keep going. No hacks involved!

So let’s get started and let’s check out the best TwoDots cheats, tips and tricks for this insanely addictive game!

 1. Squares. Squares are the bomb!

twodots squareJust like in the original game (Dots 2013), TwoDots is extremely easy to beat if you manage one thing: creating squares. When you create a square, you remove all the dots of the same color from the board and automatically you increase your chances of creating more squares, so keep doing it! Even better, if you can create a large square (9 connections), then you will also get a special dot with super powers that will take away some extra dots with it.

So create your entire game strategy around squares. Analyze the board, see where it is easier to create matches that will result in squares being created afterwards. Even if you don’t need the color to complete the mission, squares are better than a simple match, so always go for squares. Easy! (At least easy to say, because the reality, we know it’s different!)

2. Anticipate the square making patterns

There are a few special dot positions that can easily result in a square and you have them below, try focusing on getting the most out of them:

The puppy

This one is the riskiest as you are not sure that you will get the color you need. You might, so unless you have a better option, try to work it out!

The stepladder (vertical Z)

In our example, it’s impossible to create the square, but if there were a dot there which could’ve been removed, we’d get a guaranteed square. Good to know!

The missing dot

This one’s again pretty obvious, and you should be on the lookout for it: one single dot is required to create a square, so don’t go matching the three dots, make it such that the fourth drops into place.

The hamburger

Looks like a hamburger, right? Well, it’s also extremely useful as it’s the easiest square to create: just match the “ham” and square the burger!

 3. Quit the level and restart the game!

When you start a level, if you quit it before you make your first move, you won’t lose a life. So look at the board, if it’s an extremely difficult level and if you don’t like the starting placement of the dots, you can quit the level and start it again (if you just hit Restart, you will lose a life, so you have to quit the level!)

4. Extra hearts cheat

Did you run out of hearts already? Of course you did, the game is extremely difficult and you have to wait all 20 minutes to get a new one. But I have a quick trick for you to get you some extra lives: simply go to the settings of your device and fast forward your time 100 minutes. You will get your 5 lives back and you’ll be ready to play. Make sure to take advantage of this cheat before the devs fix it!

5. Start at the bottom of the board

Just like in other match three games, TwoDots gives you more chances of creating new matches if you start matching the dots at the bottom: more pieces will fall and the board will change a lot if you do so. Just make sure that you strategize and it’s the best option, because all it matters are… squares!

6. Force a reshuffle of the board

Even though it will cost you a few moves, try to force a board reshuffle when things are not looking too good for you and you have a lot of impossible to match dots piling up at the bottom: slowly work your way up with two dot matches, until it’s impossible to match any more dots. Try to keep the reshuffle forcing to a maximum of 4 moves, otherwise you might not have enough moves left to complete the level.

7. Replay. Then replay some more

I’ve replayed level 15 in TwoDots two sets of lives and I was starting to be 100% sure that it’s an impossible to beat level – at least impossible without any boosts.

Then I started to listen to what I preach and started creating squares – went lucky with two large ones and there I was, cruising over that impossible level. So instead of rushing to pay the cash for the power-ups, try to replay your levels. Eventually you’ll get the right dots. Eventually.

8. Take your time and strategize

Since TwoDots comes with no time pressure, you have all the time in the world to strategize and make your moves. So take your time, analyze the board and make sure that you always make the best match possible.

This means that you have to visualize the colors on the board, anticipate where the dots will fall, the new connections that will be made and prepare for your next move before you’ve even made it.

9. Power-ups to buy

You can buy 3 powerups ingame; 5 extra moves, a Bomb and Extra lives. They are pretty expensive and none guarantees that you will complete the level, so make sure that when you buy them and use them, you really need them and they can help you beat a level.

There are no good or bad power-ups, it all depends on the situation: the 5 Extra moves are extremely useful in games that you’re just about to hit the requirements, while the bomb comes in handy when you have a piece stuck on a platform or blocked in a way that you can’t reach it.

10. Relax

It might seem that TwoDots is not a game that can drive you crazy, but in my case it certainly managed to do so with its extremely difficult levels. How to beat a level you’ve been stuck at for ages? Well, you certainly can’t if you are not relaxed – when you are angry, you can’t focus and as a result, you’ll do really bad at the game. Just take a break and come back to those impossible levels when you’re completely relaxed. You’ll see that there’s a chance and you’ll certainly make it count!

    Wow! You reminded me to focus on building squares, and I finally conquered Level 85 with 1200+ points and three stars! Thanks! I had been on that level for two weeks. I think my error was in having two goals: fight as much fire as possible and clear squares when they happen to come up. The key is setting up and clearing squares, and the fire and ice will take care of themselves. Eventually I got on a huge roll with square after square. Levels 86 and 87 were instant winners after the beast of a level on 85. Squares, squares, squares.

  2. Thank you for the tips! However, still pretty new at this on level 35 I think. Not quite sure what u mean by puppy and some other names u referred to. Would appreciate if u would expound on that. I only play WWF so this is one that just popped up somewhere and it is nice. Solo. Relaxing howbeit frustrating sometimes. So I really do appreciate the tips. It always offers power ups but have no idea how to do that or where they are unless that’s the pay for stuff? Blessings from Jesus to you n thanks again!
