To think that a platformer about dogballs could be so charming and emotional…


What an all-round marvel. Simple, yet effective and even stunning graphics paired with a musical track that’s fitting, funny and thrilling, and grouped up with platformer puzzles that really tie everything together. I’m astonished.

What can I say? I’m flabbergasted. I usually write longer reviews with feedback, but I’m utterly speechless this time around. On your place, I have no idea of what I would change or add to improve the experience, since it’s already all so neatly packed together. If anything, as someone mentioned before, an R button or something to quickly restart. But really, for short levels, that’s just me being picky.

Incredible work. I’ll forward it to the Whales and Games to share on the delight that Dog Dog Dungeon is. I clap like a madman for you, looking to see more of this kind of entries in the coming jams whale
