    Word Up Dog is a fresh, and fun experience combining word gaming with dungeon crawling. The references to the fizzling eighties are really fun, especially for those who sang along to MC Hammer and LL Cool J. Highly recommended.

    Word Up Dog is an incredibly weird concept that seems all the more random when compared to the developer’s other releases, but that doesn’t make it any less amusing to play. It’s weird enough to enjoy without being too obtuse to follow. It’s also just plain goofy and worth showing off because it features animals dressed like rappers from the 80s: it practically sells itself.

    It's a bit dorky, and it needs a few tweaks to really offer much lasting value, but what's here is quite fun. It just needs a little more worth digging.
