One of a series of games from A.R.Software which was missing for some time. Peter Weighill has kindly informed us that the game has turned up on Gamebase here:
Dots and Boxes is described by the advert as an intelligent game where the user and computer take turns in completing boxes by drawing a line between two dots. The aim of the game is to win the most boxes whilst skillfully minimising the number of boxes given away to a computer.
A very simple concept, which seemed to please one particular reviewer in Commodore User magazine – where the game was actually reviewed! This suggests that this game exists, but did it get a release?

That’s great news. Great to see the game backed up properly and scans made. Thanks for sharing!
