Doofus is like a reverse Sleepwalker - you play a simpleton (hence the title) and must get through a series of platform levels ensuring that neither you nor your pet dog get hurt. The game unusually scrolls from right to left, with the dog simply following you. The platforms are often on different levels, providing multiple routes through the game. Most hazards in the game can be shot, but others can be avoided by jumping. A number of bonus weapons and other enhancements are on offer.
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.
