Armed only with a lab coat, stethoscope, and your charming smile, use a variety of emergency lifesaving procedures to prevent Bark the dog from having a ruff day. Veterinarian’s Hospital: Ruff Day is a single player game designed for a custom built stuffed animal controller. Experience fast-paced, quick reaction gameplay inspired by “Bop It” styled audio games. Save Bark the dog by performing 1 of 3 lifesaving techniques in a limited time frame: CPR, Cardio Pulmonary Thump, and checking for a pulse. Players earn ‘life points’ for each correct action, and with enough points Bark might just pull through. However, fail to do the correct move in time and Bark is in for a Ruff Day.
