Levl 1

Level one

The player has to guide a dog through a house, which is broken into chunks, by sliding the chunks around so the dog can go into them. The player has to guide the dog to the kitchen in the house so he can get his supper.

The player does this by placing a bone in places in the house where the dog can get it. It is almost similar to a sliding number puzzle game, of which the player slides the pieces of the house to help make a pathway for the dog to the kitchen using its bone.

Level 1

"Drag the rooms to form a path from left to right. Then pick up the bone and put it on the other side!"

First, drag the bone to the kitchen. Move the room with the anywhere wallpaper to the right of the left and right only room. The player has completed level 1.

Level 2

"You don't need a complete path from start to finish. Get the puppy as far as to the sofa, and then make the path to the kitchen."

First, drag the bone to the kitchen. Move the room that can go anywhere to the right of the room with the dog. The dog will take a ride on the elevator and walk to the room with the chair. Then, move both rooms with the anywhere wallpaper above the elevator. The dog will take a ride on a different elevator straight to the kitchen. The player has completed level 2.

In the Dog House


Interactive objects


Pieces


  • Hallway pieces - Pieces that the dog can use to travel forwards
  • Lift pieces - Pieces that the dog can use to travel up and down
  • Stair pieces - Pieces that the dog can use to travel diagonally
  • Fireplace - The piece where the dog spawns in


Hazards

  • Cat: The cat will prevent the dog from moving farther

Scoring

Players are scored by the number of moves they take to complete each level (the less moves, the more points are earned).

Glitches

  • Sometimes if the player moves the floor rapidly when the elevator is moving, the elevator can become stuck and the dog will float in the air. When this happens, dropping the bone will cause it to fall through spots where there are no room blocks. Placing a vertical room block beneath the elevator makes both elevator and the dog teleport into exact spot. The block above the elevator cannot be moved, since game thinks the dog/elevator is there.
  • Avatars are located in incorrect places in two levels: in level 16, it is found on the right side of the house and in level 17 it is found on the black brick block.
  • In level 28, if the player causes both the dog and the cat to move when adding the door, the dog will stop moving with the cat in the first door since the second cat is blocking the second door.
  • Level 20 is broken and shows level 5 instead of level 20.
  • If the level is restarted when the dog reaches his food bowl, the "Level completed" screen will stay during any level. The screen disappears when going back to menu.

Mobile port version

On June 6, 2018, Nitrome released a remake of In the Dog House on the App Store for $2.99 and Google Play for $3.99. The game features fifty levels, including the majority of the original forty with additional levels. It also features six unlockable dogs and six unlockable objects, which replace the dog and bone from the browser version when selected on the title screen. One of the unlockable dogs is a cameo of the guard dog featured in Slime Pizza.

The mobile port also contains three new backgrounds and a new type of tile that weighs itself down.

Unused content

Unused

Content in this section is not used at all in the game.

Symbols

Present in the game's files are unused images of a plus sign (+) and a question mark (?). Although these seem as though they are the only unused text, there is actually a lot more that do not have images but Action Script associated with them.

The Action Script for the unused text that have no image appear all the same, with the exception that the word occurrence after None_ but before extends is replaced with, in all caps, the name of the symbol.

Below are collapsible boxes that contain the source, raw, and P code for all unused symbols. Click [show] to collapse the box.

Sprites

A brown box is present in the game, a box that has a brown outline and transparent inside. It is possibly early dimensions for the general size of each room in In the Dog House.

Rooms

The Moon Apple Logo Incomplete section

This section is incomplete. You can help by adding the missing info.

Found on Simon Hunter's website is a large image of various backgrounds for rooms in Dog House, including some backgrounds that go unused in the final game.

Beta

Content in this section had their sprite superseded by another sprite.

Cursors and general room shape

Present in the game are very early images of the general shape of rooms and how the cursor would react to being on that room. Notably, the cursor on the image has been drawn on to the image, instead of being an alternate image. Along with this, there are beta images of the cursor.

Rooms appear light blue in colour, with the cursor on them appearing dark blue. The regular level cursor that is not on any room appears light blue.
