WonderdogSTORY / GAMEPLAY
Evil General Von Ruffbone and his loyal army of vicious dog troopers, attacks a peaceful, dog-ruled planet called K9! Dr. Kibble fast tracks the Wonder Dog project in order to save his world. The project is an experiment to create a super-powered dog but, running out of time, the doctor tests the serum on his newborn son and sends him on Earth with a special outfit called the Wonder Suit, to develop his skills (Earth is already doomed under Von Ruffbone!) The game is split into seven perilous levels where you gain the required combat skills and defeat adversaries to return and save your planet from annihilation! On the way, you have to encounter fluffy bunnies, swooping ducks, spiky hedgehogs, wily foxes and angry pit bulls and at the end of each stage, there's a boss waiting, usually 5-8 times yur size! Note that you will find a variety of items that can be picked up and grant you with extra power, energy, etc. WonderDog is a very cool platform that offers great fun but is, by no means, a classic. It is difficult enough to play, and sometimes it may get frustrating due to its, sometimes "slippery", controls. Besides this cons, WonderDog definitely worth to give it a try.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
WonderDoge has very good looking visuals and speedy enough sprites. The game's scrolling is fast and includes some parallax backgrounds as well. Everything is made in a cartoon-style and the sprites are well (and funnily) animated much like the Chuck Rock title (also by Core Design). The mid and end level bosses are massive sprites that occupy a large amount of your screen! The sound on the Amiga features several sampled in-game tunes but no sound effects, which makes the aural experience a bit repetitive after a while.
