The ad sucked.
Personally, I think a tutorial would be better than the vague instructions you gave (I consider a tutorial instructions that let the user practice). I can't seem to make the instructions reappear either. The achievements seem to change randomly, and they don't seem to signify anything. Multiple achievements for completing a single level... Moving on.
As far as game-play goes, it strikes me as clumsy. The dots are too close together, meaning you often accidentally connect extra dots. The connecting sometimes stops in the middle. I would try to connect four dots and it would stop at two. The stroke is presented with a pixel image, but since you put the stroke on top of it, it isn't clearly visible. So a stroke that has five dots appears to have only four. Also, the first stroke of a level is sometimes impossible given the arrangement of dots.
Putting all that aside, I liked the idea of the game. I don't know if it's completely original, but I haven't seen any others like it (That could just be ignorance on my part). I get the feeling you tried to fit too much into a small package. Sort of like trying to write a novel with only ten pages.
Anyway, I hope this criticism is seen as constructive and that the next game you make turns out better than this one.

The giant advert surrounding the game. Too much. And I don't mean a little too much. I mean a lot too much.

Even that aside the rules of the game are unclear. I make the required character every time and I loose. I make random characters trying to collect the dots and I loose. Now, I am not saying that the game itself does not have potential. However as it stands, the game itself too poorly defined to be of any real entertainment value. That coupled with the ridiculously prominent adverts makes the game not really worth playing. I am giving you a star and a half for the effort that was put into this.

Nice little game well done, would like a tutorial level as goals are non standar.

I recommend.

Interesting idea and great concept. I don't know a single bit of Chinese so I could only guess simple shapes. Kind of addictive. The artwork is good and does set an ambient in conjunction with the sound effects and music selected.

I still don't really understand how to win. Maybe an easier first level could help to ease the learning curve and help people to enjoy the game from the very start.
