Dog World is a running and jumping game where you play a solitary human fighting through a dog-infested world to defeat an evil computer. You perform tricky jumps and battle mutant dogs by sliding, dodging, and shooting. Along the way you gain weapons and abilities to help you explore and progress. As well as the unusual enemies, the game stands out because you view the action, as if, through an old computer monitor.
