Power Up Players, get your hard drives ready for another mobile video game review! This time we are reviewing the ball bouncing dot game Spurt Dot!
Spurt dot is an interactive brick breaking game in which the player taps the screen to break bricks, collect stars and avoid obstacles. The game has a great sense of a party as the colors are vibrant and the music in the background had me excited to play. There are 3 levels that will test the player’s skill and reaction times; Normal, Hard and Insane! Normal modes has a simple speed attached while Hard speeds up. Insane is just as it sounds, insanity for the quick reflexes of the challenger. I prefer the Normal mode lol.
Sights & Sounds: I enjoyed the simplistic design of the game. The colors are bright and vibrant so it is easy to spot where you will need to tap to control the ball. I really enjoyed the techno/ dance song that accompanies the game. It makes the task at hand feel like a party and increases the excitement.
Gameplay & Difficulty: The gameplay and controls are very easy. Tap the screen to bounce your ball while avoiding obstacles and pitfalls. You can rack up bonus points by collecting stars randomly marked on the colored bricks. Try and survive as long as possible! The different difficulty settings makes for a customized experience
Replayability: I can see Spurt Dot being a game that you can play when you have a few minutes of time to spare. Because of its simple design and unlimited play time, I find myself playing to see how long I can last. Currently my highest score for Normal difficulty is 54.
Final Thoughts: I did enjoy playing the game, however, it does seem endless. I know that is built by design but I would prefer to have goals set by the game. Maybe incorporate an arcade mode and a zen mode. The zen mode can be the endless tapping and race against your highest score and the arcade mode can be a set target where you reach a total score and move on. Maybe making it progressive where the speed, obstacles and pitfalls increase in difficulty. That would be awesome.
This is the section of the review where I note my top reasons to Play or Skip the mobile app!
- Endless brick breaking fun (the classics are where it’s at!)
- A chance to test your reflexes (and improve your skill) with the different game speeds
- A quick game that’s pretty entertaining and great music
- If you prefer progressive games that have a set goal
- If you get frustrated with games that test your reflexes

I give Spurt Dot 3 out of 5 Power-ups!
