What should I play now that I've finished Dots & Co?

I've completed level 550 of Dots & Co. Yay! Wait, no, boo! Can you suggest games for Android (free preferred, but happy to pay if its great) that scratch that same itch?

What I like about it:
Puzzle game
Levels to move through! This is crucial
Single player
Can jump in and out of it
Not timer based

Yes, I have the other games by the same company

I really liked Hungry Cats, which I've nearly completed. It's a picross type puzzle, single player, has many levels available and you don't need to worry about the clock.

While you wait for other possibilities, one of the things I am doing is going back to play every level until I get 3 stars on all of them.

Can you take some timed levels? Alphabear, and other games by the SpryFox folks are excellent. If it's a hard no on timed levels, look at their game TripleTown.

(Sorry, I don't know if these have Android versions)

- Best Fiends
- Bejeweled
- Drop7
- Monument Valley (paid, but awesome)

I really like Infinity Loop on iOS, and I believe it’s available for Android.

Toon Blast is generous enough with the coins/free lives, I've never felt pressured to buy the game packs. Not nearly as pretty as the dots family, but scratches a similar puzzle itch.

I have been really digging Flow Free lately. Should tick all your boxes.

You might like Shapist — you have to arrange all the different shapes (rectangles and unions of rectangles - kind of Tetris pieces) into a given constrained area (with added complications as one progresses).

If you miss doing geometry homework, you might enjoy Euclidea — it presents a series of geometric construction (compass and straight edge) challenges of increasing difficulty.

The Futurama game is another good jewel match game.

Kami 2 is so zen and beautiful. It's free. There's also a huge user/maker section which I find is even more enjoyable than the game, which is pretty damn enjoyable.

I’m having fun with Two Dots.

Yes, Two Dots is similar and it has 1660 levels, weekly expeditions and treasure hunts and rewinds — so plenty more where Dots & Co came from.
