A Puppy's Tale is a story-driven Minigame that revolves around a puppy whose bone is stolen by the Phantoms.
In this game, the player controls a puppy and battles Phantoms by drawing shapes on the screen.
The Phantoms start at the outer edges of the screen and slowly close in on the puppy. Once a Phantom reaches the center, the puppy will lose a heart and all the surrounding Phantoms will be pushed back halfway.
Each Phantom has a specific series of shapes above it and when the player draws the first shape in that series, it will be removed and the Phantom may be pushed back.
Once all the shapes are removed from above a Phantom, it will be defeated. If the puppy loses all three hearts before defeating the Phantoms, the player will be forced to either quit or replay the chapter.
There are five chapters in the game and each one can only be played in the correct order after completing the previous one. Each chapter is completed by defeating all of the Phantoms in it. There are also four difficulty modes: Easy, Medium, Hard, and Expert. At first, only the Easy difficulty mode is accessible. Each additional difficulty is unlocked after completing all five chapters of the previous difficulty.
