Boogie to the beat, with kibble to eat! These pugs sure know how to party hardy, but not everyone feels the same – quick, make your way to the Party Pug bus before the police grab you and shut down the fun!

Swipe in any direction to move one square on the grid, equaling one turn, with the goal of reaching the starfish tile in order to rejoin your pug pals. As the levels continue, fences and meddling menaces are added to the grid – use your brain-power to think ahead and avoid getting caught out!

▲ Aim to reach a full three-star final rating by collecting all the coins across each grid!

▲ Double-tap sand mounds for prizes, and collect items like the red rubber ball to up your score.

▲ Unlock new pugs randomly or by collecting enough prize pieces. Tap ‘Pug Selfie’ to take a snapshot alongside your new friend!

Policeman opponents move one grid space each time you do and are on patrol in the same area, while pug-loving ‘Richard’ moves two grid spaces every turn and is constantly moving towards you. You will need to strategize in order to avoid their clutches by maneuvering around them or skillfully trapping them behind fences!

Who said you were a lonely pug? Unlock up to 46 different pug friends, each with their own unique style and sound, by collecting coins scattered across each of the stages. You can also double-tap on sand mounds to dig for treasure that can help you unlock them faster. Don’t keep your Party Pug pals hanging – get to the party bus and prepare to get your groove on!
