Despite all the grandeur of increasingly impressive graphics and in-depth storylines, sometimes all anyone wants is an addictive and testing logic game. That game could well be LinkDots.

Based upon an Ancient Egyptian puzzle and the Pharaohs’ pre-occupation with geometry, LinkDots is all about placing dots in the right place. It sounds and looks a lot like Tic Tac Toe or even Connect Four. There’s a lot more to it, however, and players will find themselves swiftly tested by the three different difficulty levels, or against their own friends thanks to the four player multiplayer. Players must think quickly while also working out the best move to succeed. It’s a great challenge.

For those looking for a new logic game to test the grey matter, LinkDots looks set to be an ideal game to play. It’s available now for the iPhone priced at $0.99 or for the same price for the iPad.

Check out the gameplay video below to see what’s involved.

I studied Ancient Egypt once upon a time as part of my studies. Unfortunately there wasn’t a gaming module to it otherwise I might have encountered the Tic Tac Toe-like Siga. It’s a game that’s been around for countless centuries with its game designs even displayed on temples within Egypt. Clearly at one point, it was very popular. Players of both Tic Tac Toe and Go will recognize certain elements, too.

Much like Tic Tac Toe, players must move all the game pieces to form a line. There’s a bit more strategy to it than that, of course, but games are typically quick, much like the aforementioned Western game. It should provide a great change to the regular games of this type. Siga for the iPhone and iPad also provides the ability to play a two player game on the same device as well as via Game Center. Besides being fun, it might even educate children all about what people got up to in Ancient Egypt.

Siga is out now just in time for all those long summer trips with the kids. It’s free to download.
