Sports Dog was a fantastic and well done dog management game with a goofy nod to Star Wars as the intro story kept it fun and interesting. Having the announcer reading off the breeds of dogs as they’re selected was very charming and a nice added touch. The gameplay itself was really fun to watch the dogs running around, chasing after a ball and barking. Having the ability to move the dogs around and set them where the player would like them to be is a helpful way of optimizing your team and guarantee victory.
- The different breeds of dogs the player could play as
- The announcer
- The music and composing an entire song using dog barks
- The power-ups each breed of dog had that was unique to them
- Needs a little more gameplay element, felt more of just like a spectator game
- The physics of the dogs and the ball were a little rocky
- Not knowing what the power-ups do without having to use them and having them go on cool down was a little rough.
The biggest issue with this game is that it feels more like a spectator viewing game instead of an actual game that someone can play. There’s a few things to do like using power-ups during gameplay and assigning the dogs to specific positions before the match starts, but not much after that. The game would benefit more if there was a way to actually control the dogs during gameplay and having an indicator on the dog to symbolize which dog is being played by the player.
The use of power-ups is also very complicated in the sense that as the player plays the game, the power-up abilities are unknown until you actually use them. That can be an issue because then they are now on a cooldown, sometimes a long one or sometimes a short one, completely wasting that ability in the meantime. Having a help menu for the power-ups would be a useful tool to have in the game.
The way to the finals is ruff. Will you go all the way in this mastiff effort? The pawsibilities are endless!

There are already a dozen Air Bud sequels. Another one would be absolutely unnecessary!
