About this game

You are a dog's kidney.
Your dog is in kidney failure and doesn't have much time left to live.
By assisting with kidney function, you can extend your dog's life a little longer and postpone the end of your dog's and old man's lives.

---You as a Kidney---
You recognize the blood as four colored blocks.
The blocks can be broken with a few taps and have the effect of "getting rid of toxins" and "gaining kidney experience".
Blocks are combined with other blocks of the same color, so the more blocks you put together, the more efficient you are.
The amount of toxins in the blocks, the amount of kidney experience and the difficulty of breaking blocks increases as time progresses in reality.

---Blood pressure---
Blood pressure is the force needed to break a block. The higher your blood pressure, the fewer times you can break a block.
You can use the "Kidney Experience" gained by breaking the block to increase your blood pressure.

---Blood pressure boost---
You can boost your blood pressure by breaking the green block to see the ad.
While boosting, you can break the block by just tracing it.

---The dog times---
Sometimes you can read clippings from your grandfather's newspaper, "the dog times", instead of seeing ads.

---Dog and old man's life---
The life of a dog and a old man who wakes up at 5am and sleeps at 10pm is tied to the clock on the device.
Watch their lives at any time of day.

The gameplay is simple enough, but it does require you to come back to the app in a very tight time window for the last 2 days, otherwise the dog dies and you have to redo that day. For me, this almost meant waking up in the middle of the night just to tap some cubes. I got lucky and ended up getting the ending after 4 deaths. The pixel art is far too noisy to decipher what is going on in some of the events. The reliance of using the ad powerup is way too high as cubes get ridiculously strong.

This game brought me to tears twice, and still chokes me up a bit now. It falls a bit short on certain elements, gameplay taking a bit away from the story and being a bit hard on fingers, but the stories and characters are beautifully done. It really feels this man and his dog are living in summer, there's many astounding details. The also game manages to thin the needle between making you feel guilty while not being exploitive. So long as one pays attention and invests in the story, it's great!

This game has charm and nice sprites, but its also kinda dull and very repetitive. The game has no point to it, no end goal, no kind of achievement or anything. The dog will die in the end, and while other games have had plots where you know you'll die, they have great gameplay, while this game has super inefficient tapping that takes FOREVER to make any progress. You'll be watching ads any chance you get to break the shapes more efficiently, and you still don't make much progress after that.
