From fire and ice to toxic chocolate and cooking wildlife for food, Russian Subway Dogs is full of simulated systems to discover and exploit! Original Soundtrack by Peter Chapman aka COINS (Guacamelee!, LittleBigPlanet Karting, Modnation Racers)

Russian Subway Dogs is an incredibly unique arcade-style title that excels in short bursts. With a wonderfully zany presentation and great mission diversity, there is little else like this game. Its score-chasing, shawarma-munching action is diluted somewhat by its stunted game flow and superfluous unlockables, but neither flaw results in Russian Subway Dogs being anything short of good.

Its chaotic simplicity is what makes it so fun, and so easy to go back to every day.

8.5 / 10.0

The game may seem a little hard at the beginning but after some exercise you can find it entertaining and highly playable. It is totally expected that you repeat and repeat to achieve higher scores, a process that is really enjoyable. I must admit that this game is better than what I have expected before playing it and is a step forward for its creators.
