Do you remember playing the super addictive mobile puzzle game Two Dots? Well, apparently you’re not the only one. Developer PlayDots has revealed that Two Dots officially hit 30 million downloads, with more than 5 billion games played.
Two Dots was released in May 2014 and is the sequel to the puzzle game Dots. The object is to find as many vertical and horizontal lines of same colored dots on the grid. It is currently on App Annie’s list of most downloaded games for iOS.
“We have more games and exciting updates to Two Dots on the way, including a completely redesigned version of the game that will soon launch with our Chinese partner Tencent in the coming weeks,” PlayDots co-founder and CEO Paul Murphy said in a blog post on Friday.
Dots and Two Dots both performed exceptionally well, with close to 5 billion games played in their first years alone. The biggest different between the games is revenue: The sequel generated $15 million, while the original generated a mere $1 million. PlayDots is looking to find ways to build their business and revenue by adding content and features that players want to buy. Even though Two Dots’ stats are impressive, it has a long way to go before catching up to the king — Candy Crush was downloaded on mobile devices more than 500 million times in its first year, with 150 billion games played.
Of the 30 million downloads, 22 million came from iOS, with an additional 6.75 million on Android. Two Dots has been downloaded more than 1 million times on Facebook, and Amazon has 250,000. According to App Annie, Two Dots is currently ranked No. 71 in the U.S.
