Description

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 ttyv00@gmail.com 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

Changes

What's new?

Collision system works very stable and precise now.

However the main feature of this version is server leaderboards so you can play it and see the global scores of other players.
Unfortunatelly global leadearboards work under windows only (you should start the .exe file). I've made this intentionally to avoid scores cheating by changing the source code.
I think I will invent something to make the source code version to be able to safely access global scores in one of the next releases.
Anyway even when running from the sources you can see the global scores but unable to participate in it.

Please note, that there is no waiting screen during getting scores from server and sending scores to the server, so it may seem that the game hangs for a little time after entering a name or trying to get the global leaderboards. Don't worry it is normal behaviour and don't try to interrupt this proccess.
The server I've found is free of charge PHP hosting therefor it doesn't work very fast. But it is better than nothing.

and other minor improvements...
