Evil General Von Ruffbone and his royal army of vicious dog troopers attacks the 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 to Earth with a special outfit called the Wonder Suit and in order to develop his skills (Earth is already doomed under Von Ruffbone!).
The game consists of seven perilous levels, gaining the required combat skills and defeating adversaries in order to return and save your planet from annihilation! You cope with fluffy bunnies, swooping ducks, spiky hedgehogs, wily foxes and angry pit bulls in your way. At the end of every stage you fight with a boss...usually 5-8 times bigger than you!!!
Note that you can find various items on your way that can be picked up and give you extra power, energy etc
The game is a good platformer with great fun but is by no means a classic. It is difficult enough to play, and sometimes is getting frustrating (at least to me) because most of the times you will get the feeling that the little dog slides on ice or oil instead of a normal ground!
and that makes the gameplay quite unfair! But definitely, worth to give it a try due to its nice presentation!
Well the game has very nice graphics and speedy enough sprites. Scrolling is fast and offers parallax backgrounds too. Everything is being drawn in a cartoon-like style and sprites are well (and funny) animated much like the Chuck Rock title (also by Core Design). The mid and end level bosses are massive and have been sketched nicely too!
The sound features several nice in-game tunes, though there are no SFX which makes the listening a bit boring after a while despite the nice tunes. Overall the game sounds and looks great!
