App description: A game by Dan + Lisa

As a rookie musher, foster a dogsledding team whose skills will grow if they're treated right. Week by week, get to know your dogs' unique traits, and carve your story into the trails of the Mount St. Something region.

Dog Sled Saga has a pick-up-and-play dogsled racing. Each dog's speed is hindered by hunger. Lob a limited supply of food to them to keep at full speed. Hazards on the track await.

By the time you reach the top league, youll need to:
- Budget monthly league expenses
- Hire and fire dogs
- Leverage fame to earn sponsorship deals
- Bring on employees for multitasking
- Breed puppies
and more.

Features:
- Pick-up-and-play racing
- Deep team management simulation
- Unique dogs with varying attributes and conditions
- True pixel-grid art style with frame-by-frame animation
- Multi platform save sync via Drive

I'm gonna have to buy this I love diff style sims and simulation games in general are great and this one has been a long time in the making which means a lot of care went into this project and I will support that all day

Been enjoying this one quite a bit. There's a few minor bugs, and I would recommend hoarding some cash before recruiting your fourth dog -- I learned the hard way. Even when the game tells you you have enough cash to do something, you'll always need more, so be on the safe side. I threw $2000 down the drain bc I didn't realize this. It might be a bit *too* much of a management sim for me, but so far enjoying the gameplay (and adorable dogs!) enough for it to hold my interest.

Seems fun but unfortunately is broken on iPhone 6 running iOS 10. The text runs off the screen during the tutorial and I can't progress past the point where I'm supposed to rearrange the order of my team.

Hope it gets fixed soon.

Pull the lead dog ahead that's the last step of the tutorial having said that I know what you mean
The text gets a little screwy with me too I was still able to decipher it
First you toss food to the dogs as they pant
Second you do the jump
And last I believe is the part where you simply pull your lead dog ahead Touch him and just drag a little forward that's really it for the tutorial it's very short
