Billed as a quiet game of exploration, Doggins from Brain&Brain is a sidescrolling puzzle adventure that encourages you to put on headphones and take things slow. The game tells the tale of Doggins the terrier who sleeps in an ordinary doggy bed nestled in an ordinary house that just happens to blast itself to the moon. There he meets Fitzwilliam, the genius squirrel from the 1800s, and wouldn't you know it, that squirrel's up to no good!
Doggins functions like a point-and-click game with simple tap actions to walk and quick swipes to use inventory items. Apart from solving a few quick (and cute) puzzles, it's mostly a game of atmosphere and charm. Grin as you put on a makeshift bowtie, laugh as you uncover the secret squirrel manual. The artwork, too, is just so enchanting, and the animations send every character bounding straight to your heart. In the cuddly sort of way. Doggins is the kind of game you'll actually want to sit back and enjoy. And be thankful your own puppy takes an interest in real world squirrels.
