GAME MODES1. I don't understand how to play.
Launch Help->Tutorial. It will teach you basic steps to start playing.2. What are the differences between game modes?
In Classic mode there are classic Tetris® shapes that can be moved left or right.
In Alternative mode shapes are simplified, but they are fixed in place and cannot be moved. Instead, you can remove (reject) any unwanted shape. After you removed a shape, you should launch the next one.
In Puzzle mode your aim is to clear the board using several predefined shapes. I.e, you should build lines so that ALL blocks from the board disappear.
Doptrix Evolution game modes:
Classic+ is the same as Classic but with the ability to swap shapes.
In Reflection mode you can only place shapes on one side of the board (the board will flip automatically with every move).
In Survival mode you have to "survive" because a random cell is placed on the board with every move.
Challenge mode is quite different - it randomly generates a board and gives you a list of shapes, so you have to plan you game 6-10 moves ahead to make the most points on early stages and to survive on late stages.3. I can't solve puzzle N, are you sure it is correct?
I guarantee all puzzles have solutions!CONTROLS1. Launching shape doesn't work sometimes.
Shape is launched with a touch-screen gesture called "fling" or "swipe".First rule
- after you moved shape left or right you should lift your finger from the screen before launching shape!
This requirement is to prevent accidental shape displacements.Second rule
- you should start "fling" gesture from the area shown below.
This is to prevent accidental shape launch while you are flipping or rotating the main board.
If you still having troubles with launching shapes, you can reassign double-tap to this action in Options->Controls. You can also use D-Pad center button.2. How the main board is rotated or flipped?
Area for rotation is shown below.
And this area is used for flipping:3. Double-tap and shaking don't work on my device.
First of all, make sure you're playing game mode where these controls work. Double-tap and shaking don't work in Classic and Challenge as they have no function there.
Second, check if these functions are enabled in Options->Controls.4. Sometimes shapes are swapped/removed, and I'm sure I didn't double-tap them!
You need to decrease shaking sensitivity in Options->Controls menu, or completely disable it.5. I don't need popup-menu.
You can disable long-tap in Options->Controls .6. Why can't I rotate shapes?
This would make the game ridiculously easy. You can rotate and flip the board instead.FREE AND PRO VERSIONS1. What does Doptrix Unlocker do?
Doptrix Unlocker app removes ads and unlocks all Pro features of the game - all grid sizes and all puzzles. By puchasing Doptrix Unlocker you also support future development of this great game. 2. I bought grids/puzzles before, do I need to buy Unlocker now?
Absolutely not. Your copy of Doptrix should automatically be upgraded to Pro version. If you have any questions, please contact the developer.3. Will all my scores earned in free version be lost after upgrade to Pro version? Or will I end up with two Doptrix icons?
No, your scores and settings are safe. Doptrix Unlocker app acts like a licence key, it doesn't replace Doptrix app. Doptrix Unlocker icon will not be visible in your apps "drawer".SWARM1. What is Swarm?
Swarm is a new social networking platform for mobile games, lightweight, fast and very easy to use.
Registration to Swarm is quick and painless. After you registered, you can start submitting you results online and compete with other people.2. Do I have to submit my results?
Of course not. It's up to you what results you want to submit.
If you don't need this feature at all, just don't register to Swarm or logout if you've already registered.3. Can I transfer my local high scores to Swarm?
This function is not supported to prevent cheating. You can submit scores only in real-time.4. Swarm keeps telling me that it's offline, I cannot submit my scores.
Try closing/re-opening the game. If this doesn't fix the problem, make sure that your device has access to the Internet - try switching WiFi off/on, turning Flight Mode on/off.GENERAL1. Is there a PC version?Yes
However, it is very outdated and I don't have time to work on it now.2. Are there versions for other mobile platforms?
I'm planning to port the game to iOS.3. Why does Doptrix require special permissions?
Currently Doptrix uses 2 permissions:
READ PHONE STATE - Allows Swarm to prevent fraud and create a secure environment.
INTERNET & ACCESS NETWORK STATE - Required for displaying ads in free version and allow submitting results to online leaderboards.
Please note, that these permissions are only used as intended and no personally identifiable information is retrieved. If you don't use online leaderboards or purchased PRO version, these permissions are not utilized.4. Can I use unique gameplay ideas from Doptrix in my own game?
No, you should discuss it with me.5. I don't like design/menu/controls/sounds/something else.
If you have suggestions on how to make the game better, I'll be happy to discuss them.6. I found a bug, what should I do?
Please report it ASAP and I'll fix it!
