The world of pets on Android, iPhone and video games, in general, is usually associated with virtual pets of the likes of Pou, Mou and other similar apps. However, over the last years, cat and dog simulators have also been developed, but what about good old traditional arcade games? That's where Good Dogs! comes in.
An arcade game starring dogs.
This is a video game that brings together all the basics of this video game genre: running and dodging obstacles. And it does so by introducing us to a dog (we'll start off with a Beagle but as we advance we can unlock up to 7 different breeds) running around a park. And you know what happens in parks: trees, rivers, tables and chairs, cyclists, joggers... we'll have to control the dog making sure it doesn't crash into of these elements whilst we collect bones on our way to increase our score.
How to play this dog-like video game?
Well, once you've downloaded and installed the APK on your smartphone or tablet and you start playing, you'll be able to:
- Step 1: Choose your dog. To start off you'll only be able to choose one, but as you advance you'll be able to unlock more.
- Step 2: Run around the park avoiding tree trunks, rocks, tourists...
- Step 3: To dodge them simply change the direction or tap the screen when indicated by the rainbow on the upper part of the interface.
- Step 4: Collect bones on your way to add points to your score.
This video game, that also has a version for iOS devices (iPhone, iPad and iPod touch), offers us retro-style graphics from a top-down view. It's a really entertaining title if you want to have fund without any other pretensions.
