Bark the dog has been robbed by monsters. Monsters were always jealous about the great friends and sweet stuff Bark had, so they planned to steal it all from him in the middle of the night. Little do they know that Bark is the most courageous dog there is and he wants all of his stuff back.

Help Bark regain all of his belongings and save his friends in the ultimate monster-maze puzzle adventure.

uhm about what blobguy said i only agree that bard space bar useless. the strong boy attually can jump through brick and ladybug :P.
I love the scream girl and nerd boy skin most.
good work men :D


a game i actually enjoyed playing all the way through. nice work!

I love the fuck out of playing this game.

I wish I had the vocabulary to communicate what a wonderful experience this game is for me.
Your visual design, your level design, your music, your animation... this top notch.

The best puzzle game I've played so far.

Main Info:
It's a good replacement for Portal/Portal 2. Even though this doesn't contain portals.
I love how in almost level every character has a role to play. Took me a total of 2-4 hours total. You just need simple logic and sometimes the right timing do do some items. However, some things which you think need timing actually has the answer lying in the hands of a character(s) who you think have no use in the level. Like the last level, for example. (You'll find out what I mean.)

Pros and Cons for every character:
Bark: For a specific location which doesn't involve randomly rolling into things, his speed is the best. Especially when you have to run past Ladybulls and you're just 2 or 3 squares away. (That is, when you have to divert its attention.
Charlie: The ability to cross over areas with holes is quite good especially when it's the only way you can get across, with that being the only tile you can cross on. Also, I think you should be able to get past Ladybulls doing that.
Darcy: Screaming stuns all the enemy in the radius, Shaman and Ghost or not. Also, screaming into the gramophone-like thingies allows things to be activated/deactivated, just in case you didn't know.
Ed: Fastest of the group when rolling. His rolling speed is equivalent to that of a Ladybull, that he can escape Shamans or Ghosts effortlessly, and get the last items to complete the level times.
Floyd: Meh.

Bark: His barking is pretty much useless.
Charlie: If he can jump spaces, why can't he jump over walls and bricks? Makes no sense.
Darcy: Screaming needs a SLIGHTLY bigger radius.
Ed: When he rolls, He can't stop himself, unlike Bark. He's pretty much a friendly Ladybull. :\
Floyd: Meh.

I was lazy to type some things, so I'll just type in the overall.
Music: 8.99
Characters: 9.15
Villians: 9.75
Items: 9.02
Total: 9.

NOW THATS WHAT I CALL TEAMWORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

great game, i thought the final level was going to have to get pass all monsters but oh well. found a bug or glitch sometimes when i die & the menu pops up to retry, it automatically does it & i have to hit it again then after i beat the level it automatically goes to the next level yet the menu for go to the next level pops up & i automatically complete that level so it was smooth sailing but i went back & did those
