ThunderdogsOfficial Waldo Score 7.7/10

7.7out of 10
Official Waldo Review

Thunderdogs is an interesting take on an arcade style classic. What makes this game unique is the added multiplayer element. Instead of fighting off computer-piloted drones, you actually have to escape the wrath of other players. It makes the game a lot more challenging and therefore also a lot more rewarding. I was a big fan of the music those who follow this blog know I am also a big fan of pixel art so this game was right up my alley. If you find yourself enjoying action-arcade style game, I definitely recommend checking this game out.
