Nitrome has a long history of colorful pixel art aesthetic and simple-to-play but cleverly-designed puzzle games, and In The Dog House is a fun addition to that roster. This new tile-sliding puzzler injects a touch of spatial manipulation into the familiar formula.

When you're away, your canine pets are apparently manuvering through room-flipping puzzles; In The Dog House lets you move rooms around house interiors, reordering them to create paths to the exit. While these challenges start out as simply creating hallways or stairs upward, In The Dog introduces more mechanics, from cats you need to avoid to tiles you can rotate to create new paths. 

As you solve the game's 50-plus puzzles, you'll unlock new dogs to play as, such as pugs and poodles, and special toys to place within rooms for your digital dog to play with. Even outside of the direct puzzle-solving, Nitorme's playful design is evident in In The Dog House.

In The Dog House is available for $2.99 on the App Store and Google Play.
