Dot Gobbler, having escaped the confines of his maze, finds himself in the great outdoors for the first time. Blinking and uncertain in the light of a new day, he ventures forth into the wilderness in search of dots, and perhaps something to put on his feet.


Left/Right Arrow: Run left or right.
Down: Crouch, or roll when running.
Z: Start game, Jump.
X: View instructions, Open/Close Sock menu.

Collect of the dots, while avoiding or attacking the Ghosts; Dot Gobbler's only attack is to roll into enemies. Red dots will restore health. Socks can be collected, and worn using Sock stations, increasing Dot Gobbler's abilities. This will allow him to reach new areas.

You can also play the game on PICO-8's BBS:

Initially made for Wizard Jam 9, but I missed the deadline by quite some way. I didn't want to release it in an unfinished state, though!
