Spots is a strategic board game for two to four players. The idea is simply to claim as much of the board as “your own' by moving counters (or spots, hence the name) to take over the squares already occupied by another colour.
A move is made by selecting a counter and then a square to move it to (within a range of two squares). Then, all the surrounding spots change to your colour.
If you have no friend to challenge, the computer can play any number of the colours. Watch out, though, Arnie plays a pretty mean game - especially in four player mode where three of the colours are automatic!
There's a natty tune playing during the game or, if you prefer, just the simple spot-effects. (You're getting good at these jokes. - Act Ed) This, along with colourful sprites and a razor-sharp edge of addictiveness (the ‘just-one-more-go' factor hits so hard it'll give you whiplash) makes it another one of the many reasons why Amstrad PD rules supreme. Just one final tip: Don't play it at parties. Okay, it will ensure that noone mentions Trivial Pursuit, but you'll never get the guests home!
