Too repetitive, January 20, 2016
by Deboriole (San Diego, CA)

I initially chose this game because it featured a dog. Unfortunately I found the lack of progress too frustrating and I did not complete this game. I don't really care for games that loop... especially if the loop is full of mundane tasks that I didn't enjoy the first time around. I love puzzles, but I felt this game's "puzzles" were more like virtual chores. There were also a ton of bugs which may or may not have been on purpose. For example, (Spoiler - click to show)when I filled the water dish and put it down for Rover, he seemed so thirsty that I picked it up and filled it again. But when I went to put it down, the game said I wasn't carrying it, and when I did "i" it wasn't in my inventory. In the next iteration the water bowl was already full, so maybe it is supposed to be "glitchy" based on the premise that you are building the simulation. I guess this game just wasn't for me. Two stars because I liked the humor.

You might enjoy Ralph by Miron Scmidt, or Snack Time! by Hardy the Bulldog.They are both shorter, and Snack Time! is pretty easy. You play a dog in both games.

There is also Dinner Bell, where you play as a human being experimented on by dogs.

Thanks for the suggestions. I have already played Dinner Bell and it was pretty entertaining. I'll check out the other two. :)
