Wicked Dog is a living digital cartoon version of your very own family dog. Your dogs can run, walk, beg, jump for joy, happy dance on your devices, and so much more. They can run agility courses, solve puzzles, and compete in games.
Wicked Dog lets you do three things: create a dogmoji that looks like your very own family dog, share the dogmoji on social media and elsewhere, and play games. You can play games that star your very own family dog animated to run, jump, dance, and more. You can even compete in games against friends and their dogs.
You create your dog by choosing its length, heights, nose shape, tail length, and so much more. There are a hundred or so customization options with infinite variety. This isn’t a case of having to choose a particular breed that is sorta like your dog. With Wicked Dog, you get to make a whole bunch of anatomical characteristics reflect the unique look of your own family dog – whether purebred or mix – including its fur length and spots.
Once you have the look you like, Wicked Dog will give your dog a thorough examination and use “anatomical intelligence” to automatically create a whole bunch of animations of your dog. We will make it sit, walk, run, wag, jump, dance, and much more.
With your animated dog, you can send stickers, share to social media, and – we may have mentioned this before – play games!
Wicked Dog Basics
The screen has three areas: editor, animations, and kennel. The editor shows the currently selected dog and has buttons for everything you need to do. There are buttons for font, sticker shape, dog toy, dog design, and of course, games.
The animations show all the available animations for your dog. How do they get there? Here’s the key thing to know – you do not have to create them. Wicked Dog creates them automatically for your dog. It uses “anatomical intelligence” to know how to make your dog sit, wag, shake its paw, and much more. You don’t have to teach it, draw it, feed it, or anything else, because these wicked dogs already know how to move their head and neck and paws and tail and everything else.
The kennel is the collection of dogs on your device. The app includes a dozen or so dogs to show you some of the variety that’s possible with Wicked Dog. It also allows you to create and name your own that you can share with friends and use in the games. And there’s a Dog of the Day in the kennel to showcase a special shelter dog or service dog.
The Bounce game is simple fun, or it seems simple until you’re juggling too many balloons! Tap to have your dog bounce balloons into the air and keep them from popping on the ground. The balloon that’s in the air the longest sets the time record.
For extra fun, choose a new dog toy from the main screen, and your dog will bounce that toy instead of the balloons. These toys come from the emoji on your device. The tennis ball is an obvious choice, but also try the flying disk, dog bone, football, and others. They’ll collide and spin and bounce in crazy ways.
The Splash game lets your dog compete in the sport of deck diving! Tap to run, swipe to jump, and try to bump the toy. When you do, the target moves out for you to try a harder jump. If you miss three times, it moves back for an easier jump. Each dog in the kennel can set it’s own personal record. Also, your dog will get better with practice, running faster and jumping farther.
In a game of Catch, you and your dog (or other players through Game Center) are presented with questions and puzzles. Answer the most the fastest to win. The questions are constantly changing in infinite variations and in levels of difficulty. There’s geography, five-card Monte, history, memory, and other challenges, with slide puzzle tiebreakers.
Test if you are smarter than your dog.
Agility competitions are popular throughout the world and even shown on TV. With Wicked Dog, your dog can compete, too, and you can even create your own courses and compete with other dogs around the world.
Every course has a practice and race mode. In the practice mode, hints will be displayed to show you how to interact with the obstacle, whether tapping something, jumping through, or jumping over.
Pick or make your favorite course and race on it for your best time. And then open the Messages app and use the Wicked Dog Stickers app (included with Wicked Dog) to challenge friends to an agility course competition! Go back and forth trying to beat each others’ time.
Warning: Agility is not always easy. Getting through a course without penalty time takes some skill and practice. Hey, you’ve been warned!
Bonus: There’s an obstacle that changes automatically with the seasons and with holidays.
Games with Friends — live and multiplayer
Your dog can compete in Agility and Catch against friends and other players around the world! Use one of the built-in Agility courses (Amber, Opal, Jade, etc), and tap the Game Center button to find other players. Using Apple’s Game Center, invite friends to play or let Game Center match you with other players. When the match is accepted, Wicked Dog creates a three-race match of up to four players. It will show you the times for each dog for each race, plus the total time of all three. That total time will be added to a Worldwide leaderboard so you can compare your dog’s speed to that of everyone else playing. There are also achievements to reach for playing courses without any penalty.
Games with Friends — turn by turn
Your dog can compete in Agility against itself or against friends. Create a course and then open the Wicked Dog Stickers app within Messages. Run the course and send a challenge to a friend or group of friends. Their dog can run the same course and try to beat your score. There are only two things to remember:
The course you play in Messages is the most recent course you ran in Wicked Dog; and
Your dog has to beat the current course record before you can send it to – and trash talk – friends.
Customize the Agility Course
You’re the course designer in Agility, and you can make courses as easy or difficult as you wish. Just tap the game button and then the editing button on the main screen, and you can select, move, add, and delete obstacles.
A hint for designers is to use grass to space the obstacles for more or less difficulty. A design that’s especially difficult is to make the dog run fast, such as through the tunnel, and then slow down quickly to jump through the hoop. That’s guaranteed to frustrate the friends with whom you’re competing.
Six standard courses are included. They are named after gemstones, and the harder the stone, the harder the course. When you play these courses against friends, your best scores are added to the Game Center worldwide leaderboard.
Customize the Toy
The Wicked Dog toy makes an appearance in every Wicked Dog game. In Bounce, it falls from the sky, in Splash, your dog tries to bump it before splashing into the water, and in Agility, it’s the target of a jumping obstacle. And you can customize the toy by picking an emoji!
Tap the bottom button, and select a new toy from the collection. To add your own, tap the +, and then tap any emoji to add it to the collection.
In this way you can use a pumpkin toy in Autumn, a heart for Valentine’s Day, or a bone any time at all.
Customize your Dog
What makes Wicked Dog unique is that you can create an dogmoji of your own dog. The games are much more fun, and the stickers are much more interesting, if they star the dog you adore more than anything else.
Tap the edit button to open a wealth of customization features. Then tap on the buttons to customize the dog’s shape, fur, banding, and spots, using the revealed controls to make things bigger, smaller, angled, etc. Tap the checkmark when done to save your choices.
Hint: To share your dogmoji, either with friends or another of your iOS devices, tap the copy button on the right. The dog’s DNA is copied and can be texted to others and pasted in their Wicked Dog app.
Customize the Kennel
The kennel is where all the different dogs stay, and of course it’s a humane kennel with lots of grass and sky and toys and love. Select a new dog by tapping it. Add a new dog – it’s a duplicate of whatever dog you’ve currently selected – by tapping the big + button and naming the dog. Update and delete the dogs you customize by tapping-and-holding one of those dogs.
