Game Profile

Do you like to drive fast? Challenge authority?

Finally, a chance to drive as fast as you can with no regard to the law. Put the pedal to the metal and drive with both confidence and precision as you speed around collecting all the coins on each stage as quickly as possible.

Execute evasive moves and collect essential items to help you dodge the police and escape being caught. Watch out for the three strikes and you are out! If, you are caught by the police three times the game is over.

It’s up to you to perform last minute lane changes, stealthy u-turns and determine the rate of speed. However, keep in mind; once you start going, there is no stopping.

DotMan is a non-stop action game that takes you back to the golden years of arcade gaming. Strap yourself into the driver’s seat and prepare yourself for the ride of your life.

  • Collect items to gain an advantage.
  • Master quick u-turns and sneaky lane changes.
  • Collect bonus items to earn a higher score.

Not quite on point

Welcome to DotMan, the game of driving in circles. And that's it, basically. There's also a small amount of strategy, along with boredom and frustration, but we'll deal with those shortly.DotMan has its roots in classic games like Dodge 'Em and Pac-Man,...

Classic Atari rip-off does the business

Silver Star Japan has decided to do with DOT MAN what Atari don't: put one of their 8-bit console classics on the DS. In this case it's the classic 2600 game Dodge 'Em. For the uninitiated, Dodge 'Em had a pretty basic concept: two cars racing in opposite directions around a box-shaped track consisting of nested lanes with one trying to collect all the dots..

Oh my god! It's basically an update* on Dodge 'Em, one of my all-time favorite ATARI 2600 games!

*except now you can make u-turns, which is pretty cool. :) But if this plays like Dodge 'Em, this game is a great game! In fact, Super Mario Kart (SNES) had a multiplayer stage that mimic'd the original Dodge 'Em set up of 4 quadrants with lane shifts between them.

Again, if it plays anything like Dodge 'Em, and feels like a spiritual successor, this should be good. ;)

I downloaded it and for 2 bucks, its kinda fun ;) It does remind me of Dodge Em, but it also reminds me of many other incarnations of this game I've played over the years, such as Texas Instruments' version CAR WARS ;) Anyhow, it's pretty fun for a low price point, has some replay value and some sleazy cover art. This is a game for dudes, to be sure.
