Let me tell you more about the three modes that are available here:

Mode 1

Mode 1 is more of a practice mode. In this mode, a bone would be shown to you somewhere in the maze. The dog has to reach the bone. There are no other things in this level. Just practice your path finding skills in this level.

Try to minimize your steps to reach the bone in the least number of moves.

Mode 2: Dog vs Dog

The second Mode is the Dog vs Dog Mode. In this mode, you have to try and reach the bone that is present somewhere in the maze, before the other dog. The other dog will also try to reach the bone, from some other side of the maze.

Mode 3: The Door and key level

The third mode that is available to play here, is the Door and Key Mode. In this mode, along with the other dog being trying to reach the bone before you, there is an additional presence of  a door and a key. You firstly have to grab the key that is present somewhere in the maze, and after that, you have to reach the door, open it, and have to grab the bone before the other dog. Given below is the screenshot of the level:

The controls of the game are very easy. You have to,

  • Use the arrow keys to move across.
  • You can also use the cursor of the mouse to move. Wherever the cursor goes, the dog will follow.

Using the cursor is a better way to move across. This is because the movement in this case is more smooth as compare to the other case. When you use the arrow keys to move, you will move one step on a button push, which is a lot slower than the movement done using a cursor.

My Verdict

Dog Maze Race is a nice Windows 8 Maze Game, with easy controls and a nice game play. You can definitely give it a try.

Get Dog Maze Race.
