Rescue Rover is a simple little game - where you play the role of a boy who seems doomed to have his pet dog ('Rover') stolen by evil robots, over and over and over.  Indeed each level begins with the poor puppy being taken away - and then you need to explore the level and figure out how to foil the robots and retrieve your pet.  While the story is odd (to say the least) the game play is quite fun:

Rescue Rover is playable under Virtual PC - but there is an issue that causes vertical scrolling to be quite chunky (this is annoying - but it does not make the game unplayable).  If you want to try this game out for yourself you can download it from: http://www.dosgames.com/files/rrover.zip
