Looking for a game where you have to rescue your dog

Post by Cheatmaster Stijn »

I'm looking for a game where you have to rescue your dog. I used to have it on a floppy, but i've lost it. I only remember a few things.
1) In the intro, you see that a robot 'dognaps' your dog.
2) In one of the levels, you have to move a ball in a sort of labyrinth. It was looking like this:

and it continues for a while.
Who knows the title of this game?

The game you are looking for sounds a LOT like the old dos game called "Rescue Rover" It featured a red dog and MANY obsticles... Chances are, that this is the game that you are looking for. I'm not sure if it has been released as freeware or if there is a shareware version to download.

im not sure where you can download the game. I used to have it on an old CD... however, the CD is lost (and probably scratched beyond repair) :cry:

Believe it or not, Rescue Rover (and the sequel, Rescue Rover II) are still being sold :o So they aren't even abandonware. See for yourself:

Seems whoever owns DownloadStore bought the rights to all the old SoftDisk games (also including other id software classics like Hovertank 3D, Shadow Knights, etc). $9.95 seems like a lot to me for a DOS game originally released in 1990 ... especially since that's just to download the game! :cry: This is why, unfortunately, you can't find these games on dosgames.com.
