The Reaper's Dog is a twin-stick shooter with a herding minigame and cats with laser eyes. As the Grim Reaper's faithful dog, you are tasked with guiding animals' souls to the afterlife. Help crazed animals by pacifying them with your laser eyes; then enter the spirit world and herd souls into the Vortex of Transcendence. Don't worry though, you can reenter the realm of the living at any time, and you'll want to quickly. Staying in the spirit realm for too long proves fatal - even for a canine demigod. Make your master proud!
