Don’t Kill the Puppy is a crazy take on an old classic style game. The rules are simple. Take Julie, and her dog and get them across the busiest streets in your city. Just watch out for cars, trucks, buses, and trains, because trust me…they are not looking out for you! Don’t get hit or it’s game over! If either Julie or the dog gets nabbed by a passing car, or traffic element you die and its game over. No continues, no retries and no save points! This game is just a pure infinite challenge, so see how far you can make it, and remember Don’t Kill the Puppy!


Yes, of course. The game includes 22 individual achievements, some of which are “hidden”, but go ahead we dare you to get them all.


If running forever seems boring to you and dodging cars is just way too easy, well then fear not gamer friends! Don’t Kill the Puppy features a distance/point based Leaderboard. Challenge yourself, your friend’s high scores, and other players around the world to see who can travel the farthest in a single play. How far can you go?

First of all, no. We love animals, the game is meant to be humorous and funny and not intended to reflect or portray the thoughts or ideas of any member of our design, creative team or staff. That being said, I am sure we will get tons of emails saying we are a bunch of jerks, but rest assured we are all animal lovers, some of us here even donate our off-time to rescue and rehab stray animals and find them homes. A portion of the ad proceeds that are earned from this game will go to support the strays and other rehab animals we help.
