Impressive Dog by EricTheCoolDude

made by EricTheCoolDude for LD28 (JAM)
After spending several weeks in a pet shop, a little girl walks in and you realize she might be the one. Your new owner! However, it seems like she's having a hard time choosing who she wants to take home, and she can only choose one!

You need to impress the girl with cool tricks and listen to her commands to show what a good dog you are. Then she'll take you home, for sure!

This game is so good I don't even know what to say... Really cute graphics, cute music, gameplay was really nice too. (being a dog is hard, she kept asking me to stand and never asked me to do a frontflip. If I saw a dog doing a frontflip I'd probably buy it!) Just really amazing. Awesome job!

Aah, too cute~

This game is just like overflowing with cuteness, omfg.
great job on the art ( especially animations ), now add guns

Fantastic game!

I just love this game! It's cute, it's funny, it matches the theme in an unpredictable way and it has amazing graphics. Love it! :)

Just perfect, really really enjoyed it.
Maybe just missing some guns.

Aaaah this game is perfect ;_;
I felt so terribly alone and bruised when at the end I had like -3000 and she chose an other dog ... Why doesn't she want a so cute and so adorably retarded backflipping puppy ?

Cute, adorable and I can't stop doing backflips! <3 Good I got xbox controller, because I feel pad controls done a lot better.

Amazing graphics and art style! And a cute story! Well done!

The keyboard controls are a bit too sensitive tough.

Tony Hawk's ...cute puppy!
Original game! Loved it. :D
My best: 9050.

Awww, very cute. :) I enjoyed it a whole lot. But it doesn't fit in with the theme at all.
18. Dec 2013 · 01:22 CET
Very cute art style.

Amazing, one of the best so far. Great sounds, graphics, and general style. Fun to play and well executed. Really impressive, well done!

This is amazing! My highest rated entry so far, kudos!!!!

Cute, great art, and nice concept. Not much depth to the gameplay though.
22. Dec 2013 · 23:14 CET
Lovely artstyle, but I could've used some barking and whimpering sound effects. This feels like the beginning of a nintendogs-esque game :P.

Shame on the people wanting guns in this! It's obvious that replacing the dog with a human male is far more important right now. For reasons.

This is cute and fun, and a little tricky too. Nice job!

Best thumbnail image evar~

Amazingly cute and impressively well done.
24. Dec 2013 · 15:23 CET
It'a a really cute game! Graphics, sound, gameplay... But mother's voice it's a little manly :S
Great work!
24. Dec 2013 · 17:26 CET
Perfect game, simple funny and a lot of fun! I kept playing until I got an A!

Nice game. Good work! :-)
24. Dec 2013 · 19:53 CET
Definitely one of my favorite games so far.
24. Dec 2013 · 22:05 CET
This is great entry. Good show. But I think the rotation speed is too sensitive. Its either the camera follow is too eager to catch up or the dog just rotates too fast.
Definitely better with the controller. I can imagine a fun split screen multiplayer mode where two people compete for the girl.

This game is overloaded with cuteness!

Clever use of the theme and fun gameplay. My niece would absolutely love this game!

So cute! Lovely graphics and music.

The instructions were quite hard to remember. Perhaps you should let the girl tell you exactly which combination keys you should press, like "Roll: left right left right A B".

Nice graphics! Got a hang of the controls only first after pushing various buttons before stumbling onto P (so maybe add some "How to play" to the menu). A little comment to the girls comments also, it would feel better if they come after the animation is completed rather than as soon as one e.g. presses the combination for playing dead. I all a nice little game though.
