The Bumpomov's Dogs game for Atari Home Computers was designed and programmed by Gray Chang, and sold by the Atari Program Exchange (APX) in the early 1980s.

Each player controls a dog. You pick up dog biscuits that are scattered throughout the maze and carry them back to your doghouse for storage. The first dog to save 100 biscuits is the winner.

You can pick up one of three bones floating through the maze. When you launch a bone, it flies through the maze for a couple of seconds, and if it bumps the other dog, that dog zips quickly through the maze and drops its biscuits along the way.

You can carry no more than 30 biscuits and no more than two bones at any given time. If you lean against a wall when you launch a bone, the bone follows along that wall, turning around corners as needed. These are called "wallhugger" bones.
