Is it dogs? Is it Pogs? No, it’s PHOGS! and it’s finally come to Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC! GameByte first got a glimpse of PHOGS! back in 2018, and now the colourful and crazy puzzler has finally been unleashed into the world. Should you be checking out PHOGS!? Absolutely!
PHOGS! takes the premise of Nickelodeon’s Cat-Dog and throws a whole heap of puzzles into the mix, with vibrant colours, charming characters and a big ol’ dash of nonsense.
“Stretch, bark and bounce your way through obstacles and challenges across three vibrant worlds, filled with hilarious physics-based gameplay and sneaky secrets,” says the game’s official description.
In PHOGS! you play as both Red and Blue, two super-cute pups joined together by a long stretchy belly. Play single-player and take on the game’s challenges in a test of your skills and dexterity, or join forces with online buddies for a co-op experience.
Along with its wonderfully wacky gameplay, PHOGS! features a collection of zany worlds known as the Phoggyverse. Packed with secrets, snacks and hidden Golden Bones, the world of PHOGS! is like a child’s toybox come to life. Collectibles will allow you to customise Red and Blue, giving you some incentive to sniff around and see exactly what each level has to offer.
While PHOGS! looks like a childhood dream, don’t be fooled, there’s no easy gameplay here! The game promises a tough challenge for even the most veteran puzzle gamer, so expect a lot of head-scratching, belly-bumping and maybe even the occasional rage-quit!
If you’re looking for a weird and wonderful adventure that’ll test your skills, this is the one for you, and – in case you didn’t get this already – it stars doggos!
Supporting single-player and shared-controller gameplay, plus local and online co-op, PHOGS! is a game suitable for solo gamers and for your pals. Pick it up on Steam here!
