This is my last minute entry for the Mini Game competition 2009

(Although it's more of a small game than a mini game )

The playful neighbourhood Basset Hound has wondered into the depths of an old house, in pursuit of his favourite red ball.

Pick him up and guide him through the house, collecting Ice Creams and opening doors along the way.

Game features:
6 small stages and a bonus stage.

Graphics and Game by myself.
Music by Johan Hargne.
With thanks to Nick Gregory for his text blitter engine.
Thanks to Liam for testing

There's probably a couple of huge bugs, but hey I'm no great programmer

Meh... pretty fun. The graphics were ok. It's a bit easy tho.

This was really enjoyable!
Very unified, all the graphics/sounds fit together quite well. I found it challenging yet still rewarding!

Wow! Is a large website linking to this download, as it's gaining far more publicity than any other game in the competition...

Good game; excellent use of sound effects and the music was very awesome. The graphics and music fitted together exceptinally well (reminded me of old 8-bit DOS games!). Gameplay offered a good challenge. Good overall mini-game and defo worth a download.

very nice but it got boring quick, and the fact that you have to tap the arrow keys till your fingers bleed is kinda annoying, why not make so you can hold them down?
Posted by Ski 9th February, 2009

Because I wanted your fingers to bleed, I am worth your blood.

its well put together and looks the part but i would have to agree that the gameplay is not particularly engaging and I don't really feel the urge to play it again.

Very nice graphics and effects. This game has an amazingly professional feel! But... the gameplay gets boring pretty fast :/ At least for me it does.

Good and cute game.

Only thing that annoys me is the sprite of the dog. I can't help but think of it as some alien blob thingy as it's always looking into the screen with its wide head and those well separated eyes. Reminds me of Metal Slugs (original) aliens.

You manage to fit both quality and a little story into this minigame, could very well be the winner in my opinion.

An alien blob that barks and wags his tail?

Sounds like 'the Thing'

Genius game! If it weren't that my wrist hurt from tapping the arrow keys, it would be super great! (The way I sit on my bed and play games squashes my arm) Very POLISHED () and professional. Just kidding, only professional.

Posted by Ski 15th February, 2009

Yes, if I ever make another game like this Ill make it so the keys can be held down, dont worry
Posted by GamesterXIII 15th February, 2009

Graphics are only mediocre coming from you.

Gameplay is slow, bad, and extremely boring.

I love the sound effects, they are awesome.

Some of the music reminds me of shadowgate.

I wont repeat what everyone else said about the control and graphics.

It got boring after 3 levels though. Oh also It didn't really appear to be a mini game at all. The intro was too slow for example.

Lol, ty Codemonkey. Personally I thought it wasn't that boring, but apparently so. That must be how it won GOTW

lol! Those are going to be inside jokes for a long time to come, methinks.

I didn't think it was boring, in fact the gameplay was rather ingenius. It was just literally painful to continue. Graphics and music were top-notch. Allowing the player to hold down the arrow keys would make this a clicking gem, I think.

i thought it was boring.

lol, geez. I thought the time limit made it quite enjoyable.
Posted by Ski 17th February, 2009

I'm not sure if people are trying to get to the bonus stages in this game. I always try, that probably makes it a tad more enjoyable ;_;

It seems ok but I'm left wondering why I have to keep pressing the directiona buttons rather than being able to hold them down.

Yeah, crappy controls, etc.

Why is it that when I put the dog right in front of the door in some levels, he misses out on a bonus coin? Makes me sad because I'm being punished for no reason.

Love the graphics and atmosphere, I think you should make another one but with faster gameplay.
