Click Upon Dots is an Adobe Flash online multiplayer video game developed by Jacob Grahn that was released on 2007-02-08. His first online game, Jiggmin primarily created it as a learning project and is thus simpler than future games, such as by lacking a rank system.[1]

Gameplay

Click Upon Dots Gameplay

Two players in a match.

Click Upon Dots is an online game where players compete in matches of up to 3 other people to see who can click the most dots. A chat is also available on the lobby for users to converse in-between games.

Players can enter their username and choose their cursor's outline and inner color before they start, although they must disconnect if they wish to alter these settings.

Shut Down

Although the game's server had already been down for several months at that point, Jiggmin officially announced on 2015-09-09 that he would be dropping support for Click Upon Dots along with most other multiplayer games besides Platform Racing 2. He stated: "Managing [the games] servers is another time drain. They'll need to be streamlined or removed. I plan to keep PR2 running at least until PR4 is out, though."[2] The announcement also coincided with the launch of his new forum Freegoose.

A fan project revived the game through a private server in June 2018.[3] As the server's code has not been released, it was rewritten from scratch and as such this version features a few minor changes, such as being able to start a match with only one player.

Trivia

  • While not listed in-game, the menu theme is titled "Elevator Music".
  • The clickable dots resemble the pre-2009 Pepsi logo.
  • While it's since been removed from Kongregate, the game's file and comment section are still accessable.
  • An unknown bug appeared in early 2012 that resulted in an error displaying whenever players entered matches, which disconnected them entirely and effectively made it impossible to play matches for its last 3 years.
