_Washington’s Wig_ is set shortly before the Crossing of the Delaware River,
one of the iconic attacks of the American Revolutionary War. But disaster
strikes: George Washington has forgotten his wig! The player, in the role of
Washington’s dog Dogsworth McFreedom, has to retrieve it.
_Washington’s Wig_ is a one-button game. The dog automatically moves forward
and the player needs to press the button to jump (once) or double jump (twice)
in order to avoid instant-death obstacles like holes or other dogs. Eagles and
sturgeons on the other hand are helpful because they safely carry Dogsworth
forward for a short time. In some cases it is necessary to use those helpers
to get across wide obstacles. Other useful items to collect are coins (bonus
points), invincibility totems and extra speed tokens. Dogsworth also speeds up
over time, especially while his feet are on the ground, and he slows down when
holding the button.
The available game modes are Arcade Game (the story mode in which the player
has solve a number of levels with overall three lives), Endless Run (surviving
as long as possible) and Time Trial (reaching the fastest time on a pre-
defined level). Multiplayer is exclusive to the Xbox 360 version.
