DOS - 1994
Also available on: Amiga
Description of Doofus
Doofus is a decent jump'n run by Prestige with colorful graphics, smooth sprites and surprisingly smooth scrolling even under Windows.
Also features some nice adlib tracks by Thomas Detert (666). Not too many interesting new ideas in terms of gameplay - besides the take-care-of-your-dog element. Give it a try if you like this kind of game. BTW: This PC conversion of the Amiga game by Sphinx from 1993 has become a different game! Different graphics, different music and different level design... Be sure to use the 55hz video-mode.

How to play Doofus
- Q: how do I play this game? The screen just keeps repeating itself..
- A: The player has to press the spacebar to continue.
Keys while playing the game:
- Q = Kill yourself. (This is useful if you are stuck.)
- M = Turn the music on and off.
- S = Turn the sound on and off.
- V = I do not know what it does, but it only works when the sound is turned on.
- P = Pause the game and unpause the game.
Also, while holding down the spacebar, press the down-arrow-key to go to a menu.

One of my favorite old games. It's similar to Super Mario.

Looks a bit like 'Sleepwalker' (1993). :D
Sorry for not being helpful - I have no idea where the purple key is. ^^;
