aa is actually a genreless game which we’ve decided to call a casual puzzle but which feels more like brain-training exercise. It challenges your fast reflexes with a simple premise: a big circle’s rotating clockwise or counter-clockwise and you have to tap little dots to attach them while avoiding touching those that are already attached. Straightforward, right? We’ll see how far you can get!
aa is as minimalistic of an arcade game as its name suggests. In it, you’ll have to try to place a series of ‘needles’ inside a small, spinning circle. The only rule: don’t touch the needles that are already stuck in the circle.
To release the needles, just touch the screen. When you do, the needle will be launched forward. If you get all of the needles on the circle, you beat the level. If, on the other hand, one of your needles hits another, you’ll have to start again.
The first level is very simple, because you have just a few needles, and the center circle moves slowly. However, as you beat levels, you’ll not only have many more needles to place, but the circle will move faster, and everything will get much more complicated.
aa is a simple arcade game that’s been downloaded over 50 million times for a good reason: it is very, very addictive.
The game concept is original. Touchscreen response is excellent. The difficulty of the game increases gradually. It includes online leaderboards where you can submit your personal bests.
