You were playing fetch with your best friend when he suddenly vanished. You're on the trail, you're going to get him back. Hurry!
Arrow Keys - Move
Z - Jump
X - Bark/Throw Ball/Interact

Up/Down/Left/Right - Move
A - Jump
B - Bark/Throw Ball/Interact
Y - Drop/Pick up ball
NOTE: Due to a bug, Xbox1 controllers have to use the control stick to move. Accidentally tapping the control pad will bring up an annoying TIC-80 menu. If you'd prefer to play the game with this bug fixed, try the itch version. (The bugfix doesn't work on Newgrounds for whatever reason.)
If you'd like a different experience, turn on Double Jump mode!
You can turn on Double Jump mode by holding X (A key) and pressing [Up]. This mode will grant you a second jump mid-air after regular jumps and wall jumps. High scores will be marked with a Double Jump icon if you had it on at any time during the run.
Double Jump mode can also be used for another speedrun category as best times are stored separately!
Has your ball disappeared or is unreachable?
Never fear! Ancient canine magic is available to you! Simply hold X (S key) and press [Down] and your ball will be teleported to your feet. But beware, a full 3 minute time penalty will be applied. All magic comes at a cost!
