Python Dotter

Python Dotter - 1.0.0 (rc1)

Boris Tatarintsev (risboo)



Python Dotter is an open-source variation of one very addictive game for Android/iOS devices called Dotter. The first time I've seen that game on my HTC Desire I was really excited about its gameplay and spent about 3-4 hours playing it and trying to improve my own score. Not that long ago I've decided to implement it for PC using Python and pyGame. I hope you will like this game. Please, don't hesitate to write me your opinions and/or suggestions to my e-mail at or leave them on pygame project's page :)

Tested on Windows and Linux. No windows binary available yet.

I would be very appreciated if someone could help me and test the game on mac. New versions are comming soon. see readme file for more details


This version (rc1) includes bugs fixes.

Game balance is also tuned so now player can stop the game any moment during the gameplay if he thinks that there is no chance to add a new particle without further collisions. Score points will be counted.

Visual effects for collided particles added.

Code was refactored a little bit now it should be easier to read and understand it (however it is still far away from ideal).

Instructions screen added.

Highscores file now contains the information for replays (this feature will appear soon).

Windows binaries are now available.

and other minor improvements... try it :)

Thanks. Do you think the current version is very hard to play?
