GameZebo: "The game is offered with both a timed and untimed version, but even the timed version is very slow-paced. Normally, a slow-paced game is set up so players can use the time to study the board and plan strategy. With Finding Doggy, though, there's often no strategic choice to be made. Several times a level there will be no way to move forward except to clear enough matches to eventually earn a power-up. The power-ups are so potent, though, that often a single one clears all the obstacles from the board, leaving players with little sense of satisfaction at solving a challenge. Just one hammer, for example, smashes all stones simultaneously. Grinding away making random matches until the power-up appears is more like work than fun."
