Though not particularly groundbreaking, Escape From Puppy Death Factory is a surprising amount of fun. Granted, I might also be ever-so-slightly biased because of the presence of the wrinkly juvenile canines you find yourself rescuing.
The gimmick behind Escape from Puppy Death Factory is an interesting one. Our doggy hero has a gun that shoots glowy, rainbow-colored bullets that cause you to swap places with whatever it hits. Simple as that might sound, it gets a little more interesting. Positions are not switched immediately. It happens when the returning bullet hits you, a mechanic that allows you to turn simple land-bound canisters into useful platforms.
According to the synopsis, there appears to be a deeper plot than what the title might initially suggest. I haven't plumbed the depths of the game yet but so far, this Metroidvania-like offering looks worth the time.
