Description

Aliens have mistaken your dog Rusty for Earth's leader and sent evil robots to kidnap him. Now you must free him from a variety of doggie prisons in this puzzle game. Dognapped consists of a series of rooms containing forcefields, traps, robots and obstacles which you move through with precisely timed steps and the clever use of objects. You must carefully plan how to push crates and balls in front of robots to block their line of sight or make a bridge over water hazards. Once you've reached your dog, you then have to lead him back to the exit without anything happening to either of you.

Trivia

Buried within the file are the lyrics to the Dognapped theme song (which make you glad that digital voice wasn't common in 1993):

Now the time has come

You've got to rescue Rusty, boom boom

The Robots took him to their Robot Rooms

and they are all a'guarding him with guns and lasers

and you gotta get him back

Because he is your dog.

Also, if you look at the screenshots, you'll notice that the boy trying to rescue Rusty is African-American. One of the first (and few) to have a leading role in a computer game.
