Good casual game. Easy to understand. Could be expanded upon a lot. Gets a little boring after a while though. Overall 7/10

  • Simple concept
  • B/W graphics, but permanent flashing screen
  • Uncontrolable self-changing music volumes
  • One cheat code to beat everything: Zorg
  • Simply no fun

Dodge is a losing-is-fun minimalistic game. I spent about 1 hr to finish the whole game and I will recommend this to my friends if they are not ragequitters. In fact I usually like such games to while away hours.

From the name you can hazard a guess that it's kinda a game sharpening your reflexes, making you cry or ragequit, or whatever, only after giving it a try you will indulge in it. Basically it isn't too hard for me, I'd believe that comparing with Super Meatboy it's pretty much easier. I'd also like to emphasize my pithy advice that please do not equate the game's good or bad with your capacity...

Moving square on a grid is challenging when there are lots of enemy dots coming over, with the black and white style you will think it's confusing but I'm fine with it anyway.

Meanwhile Dodge can be expanded to 100 levels with randomized dot tracks, and randomized colors even in different levels, again I'm fine with the current game, it's extraodinaryly designed and I'm already fascinated by it.

Watch the trailer before you buy this. It's simple. Very simple, but damned entertaining. It's just the right mix of challenging and interesting. It controls very smoothly and introduces some great new concepts as you progress.
At $2 you can't go wrong with this game.

I beat the 30 levels in under an hour, most of the levels are fairly easy but some of them are extremely hard.

Simplistic game, yet it makes me smile everytime I play it.
Great ARCADE game to pass the time!
If you have 5-10minutes waiting for a friend, just click play and off you go...
The higher the level the harder it gets, trust me it gets intense; however if you persevere you'll go far!

You are a square. You have tiles and you must move from tile to tile to avoid tiny squares of death from hitting you. At the end of each stage you must collect a hollow square. Not much depth and there's really not a lot to be had here.
Gets old really fast and the one song included will get annoying.
There are better games out there, for a dollar more you could get "Super Hexagon" or "Boson X", both of which are better games than this.
Would only reccommend to people who like arcadey timewasters like the games mentioned before, other than that there's not too much to be had.

A short, casual little game. Short but entertaining. Suprisingly more difficult than i had expected! Has potential to be a much bigger game.

This game is satisfying. It may not have an art or music budget, but the gameplay is fair and interesting enough to keep you going. I just wish that there was a graphical indication of collision, and not just a sound clip playing.

Just a really simple game where you have to dodge incoming cubes and lines. Nothing too special to recommend.
