Funny interactive objects
Difficulty is not too high
It is not every day that you see a dog starring in a game, much less a dog fighting evil with a mouse as his sidekick. Okay maybe not fighting evil in this case, but still we have a dog and mouse team working together to get the job done. Apart from the inherent coolness in the game's name, CoolDog offers various challenges across 29 levels, and five bonus levels. The game presents a fun challenge to the player and features interesting interactive objects. It provides a playing experience that's just... different.
Unfortunately, the game does not have a story line, so let's just say that the dog and mouse have decided to rid a number of locations of their neon lights. The dog is armed with his water gun to strike down the enemies opposing them, and his mouse partner will turn off the lights, to prevent the dreadful waste of electricity. Okay maybe not, but ant any rate that's your goal in the game: to turn off all the green neon lights by using our cool dog to protect the mouse as he does that so no-one can stop your effort.
First off, the levels get increasingly challenging fairly quickly. The first levels are standard fare, but they will soon require some more thinking. You are not invincible and have limited health and only two lives, so you have to be careful where you leap. On top of that, you only have a limited supply of water for your water gun. There are refills throughout the levels, though, as well as many opportunities to collect points from the many boxes scattered across the levels. What is pretty interesting is that there are different interactive objects which you can shoot at, like the computer in the first level or the clock. Some interesting things happen to them when they are hit; some of the effects are obvious and some are not. The difficulty level increases as you go through, but it remains manageable and is not ridiculously hard or anything.
There is an odd feeling of control in game sometimes especially when jumping around; it takes some time to get used to it. The lack of a story also hurt the game a bit - even a simple storyline would have been better than nothing at all. The music is pretty well done, however, although, depending on your music preferences, you might get annoyed quickly.
Overall, though, CoolDog is a fun game which is enjoyable to play and definitely a good time waster. So check it out and see what all the coolness is about.
