My six year old daughter probably asks me on a weekly basis if we can get a puppy, in which I always reply with “sorry, not today.” When I first watched the video clip that plays at the beginning of Pug Run, I knew my daughter would adore this app! The video shows a boy, about her age, discovering an adorable pug at a pet shop and heartbroken when he is not able to bring it home. My daughter is also my little artist and this entire app is based on the drawings of the little boy. With all of the similarities, it was no surprise how much my daughter enjoyed this game!
You start off the game as the pug in a world of black and white, just a simple sketch on a pad of paper. As the pug runs further into this world and closer to the boy, the land begins to gain color and look real. You can collect pencils along the way to help the pug get to the young boy faster. One of my daughter’s favorite moves that the pug does is he uses a balloon to float in the air. I can always tell when the world of black and white is starting to creep up behind the pug because my daughter will squeal in anticipation and quickly try to encourage the pug to run faster.
Pug Run is an adorably fun app that I would recommend for children that work well with fast paced games. I personally enjoyed this game, so I would also recommend this app to adults.
You can purchase this adorable app in the itunes store for just $0.99
