If the title wasn't a clue enough on its own, 'Butt Sniffin Pugs' is a silly and playful video game that features adorably animated pugs as its main characters. The one- or two-player game lets players take control of pugs to use their "pug powers," make friends, and, of course, sniff behinds.

The animation in Butt Sniffin Pugs is bright and cheery, and the characters and environments are all rendered in a nostalgic 8-bit style. That gentle charm reflects the relaxed feel of the game as a whole. Though it is indeed goal-oriented, Butt Sniffin Pugs is far from intense in terms of gameplay. Its creators liken it to games like 'Animal Crossing,' 'Banjo-Kazooie' and 'Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector.'
