Sky Puppy is an updated version of the original Retro Remakes' One Switch Competition entry, in which it earned a respectable sixth place finish.

Requiring only one button to play, your objective is to guide Wilford the SkyPuppy as he floats his way through forty-five different stages while grabbing as many doggie treats as possible during his journey. The game only ends if you run out of time, although valuable seconds can be earned by collecting bones.

Wilford's horizontal movements can be controlled by using the blue arrows scattered in each level. When in contact with these arrows, he will be pushed in the direction that the arrow is pointing to. His flight speed is determined by how long he is in contact with the arrows.

The game is very pleasing to the eye and does offer a decent challenge. A welcomed change is that the trial version is not time limited, allowing for multiple retries. Like Titan Attacks, it's going for only ten bucks which is half the price of most casual games in the market.
