Controls feel good, and it's a nice interpretation of the theme. The graphics and sound are well done. The instructions might need some more clarification, and we weren't sure who was player 1 and who was player 2. I also wasn't sure what the purpose of the toy was. I would also add some more explanation as to who these pugs are, and why they're fighting over the bone.
Fun little twist on the traditional deathmatch, but a little short when it came to the theme. The floaty controls can work for games like this, but the speeds may be a little high right now - I got stuck on the ceiling and floor a lot of the time. The timer for attacking does add a lot, though, and definitely adds some strategy to it. I'd suggest working on balancing the controls and figuring out a good way to message the player's attacks so they better know when to press Q/Shift, like firing off a "Bark!" missile or something along those lines.
Fun and humorous interpretation of the theme. Differentiating the pugs with different costumes was a nice touch. The music helped set the wacky mood of the game.
I would have liked to have seen some environment/background for the pugs to fight in.
