You play as a dog following his elderly master, solving puzzles along the way using his unique perspective changing ability. Play with the arrow keys and z/x/space.

Excellent all around! A few praises:

1) Although short, the length of the game was long enough to leave me feeling accomplished at the ending without feeling like the puzzles were dragging on.
2) The visuals in the game were pleasantly reminiscent of my old gaming days, yet original in their own way. The sprites were sharp enough to be able to obviously tell the snakes, bats, dog, and master apart, but maintain their old-style charm.
3) The piano in the background was gentle, pleasantly melodic, and unobtrusive, and added to the attitude/feel of the game.
4) The focus on the concept of perspective as a double-entende for both the gameplay and as a simple support arc was interesting and original.
5) The puzzles were challenging, yet not impossible. I felt as if I could beat each puzzle as the levels progressed. There were no puzzles that left me feeling as if I couldn't complete them without luck; rather, each puzzle slowly revealed an achievable end through trial and error. Loved the puzzles!

Great work! It would be great to see a game concept similar to this from these same authors/contributors that was a bit longer, but there are no complaints here.

Awesome story-telling and all the irritation you felt when you kept dying just washes away when you reach the end. Bravo, sir, Bravo.

Couldn't play the game. Kept getting "Page Unresponsive" errors from Chrome.

I could hit continue and the game would still play but when the error comes up the last action would keep playing over - example, I jump to right and the level will restart but the dog will keep jumping to the right.

Shame, looks like a fun game. Tried this in Firefox and IE as well, similar lockups with browser specific errors.

This was fun! It's a little too short for my taste, but I love the atmosphere, the slick graphics and your way of telling the story. Keep up the great work.
