Daredogs a fun computer games that gives back to Dog Charities

I always like companies that give back to worthy causes and I especially like companies that give to dog charities. Now the good folks at Bugbyte productions thought that was a good idea too, …

Okay, I have to admit I am not a fan of computer games, being a dog I prefer more organic play, throw me a ball, chase a stick, those sort of things. However my owner, the computer geek that she is, just loves them, especially if the are character based and challenging. She usually doesn’t have time to play these days due to I like to keep her busy on my blog, and of course spoiling me. However she said she wanted to take a look at this game, due to it actually gives back and donates to charity. So let’s find out what this game is all about.

The Game

In this thrilling game created by two brothers, you’ll race against a clock and a opponent in  flying dog races. There are different characters to choose from, each with their own special skills. Entering the world of Bravo and his teammates  you are challenged in a tournament where contenders strive to beat each other in four different events.  The game is based on dog flying airplanes, battling it out up in the sky. There are four different game modes:

  • Race
  • Dog fight
  • Capture the Bone (now I could play this live!)
  • Pirate heist and Boss fights

…all challenging, graphic and fun, using different skills to win.

About Bugbyte Productions

The company is quiet new, starting this Spring and this is their first game that they have launched.  The company was created by two brothers who wanted to make their own mobile game.With not a lot of  previous experience of developing mobile games, it was a whole new challenge for them. However, they successfully launched Daredogs,  that you can download or play online.

Their Charities

I always like companies that give back to worthy causes and I especially like companies that give to dog charities. Now the good folks at Bugbyte productions thought that was a good idea too, and considering the game features the adventures of Bravo a flying ace dog, they decided it would be suitable to donate 10% of all their income to five dog charities. Which include:

Pelastetaan Koirat ry – Base in Finland: Helping animals by giving food and a variety of essential goods, providing primary health care, by providing medical assistance, if necessary, and improving the conditions of the animals on the ground and, of course,  looking for new homes for those in need.

Petfinder – Petfinder is an online, searchable database of animals who need homes. It is also a directory of more than 13,000 animal shelters and adoption organizations across the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Organizations maintain their own home pages and available-pet databases.

Adopt a pet  – Adopt-a-Pet.com (formerly 1-800-Save-A-Pet.com) is a non-profit pet adoption charity that helps shelters, humane societies, SPCAs, pet rescue groups, and pet adoption agencies advertise their homeless pets to adopters for free.

Skiathos dog shelter – A stepping stone to a better home. Skiathos Dog Shelter is located in Greece and helps re-home dogs.

Humane society  –  In the U.S. and around the world, The HSUS is leading the way to a better future for all animals.

Later if when they reach 5 million downloads on Google Play, they will bump that up to 20%!

What I think about it

Looking at my owner’s face when she tried out the game, I could see she enjoyed it and added it to her favorites. The second best thing is that while you’re enjoying the game, you know that part of the proceeds are going to a good cause. If you like action skilled games, why not give this one a try to see if you can be top dog!

I asked one of the brothers my favorite question:

Best advice on owning a dog?

My best advice would be to remember how a dog works. They are pack animals, and they listen to the leader. So one must show them who the leader is and communicate with them in an animal kind of way. Really worth the effort to read about this, your dog and you yourself will be much happier in the end.
