Well, I guess they also need to tell their stories when civilisation ends!

Ok, it’s not actually about real dogs that walk around on four legs and sniff each other’s bottoms, this is a game about anthropomorphised (read: they take on human traits but have fur and snouts and stuff) dogs.

As this is a first look, I’ll be ignoring all the bugs that may have cropped up. Also, I was given a game code for this review, blah blah blah legalities SORTED!

Dungeon of the Endless - Cootie review

There's got to be one thing said for hard games. Like aew good to grab hold of, bounce on... no wait... don't bounce on the game, it won’t end well for your machine. 

This game is hard. At the start it has two game modes which are aptly named after me at the end of a Saturday night; easy and very easy.
