Rescue Shot Bubibo

Unique light-gun game where you're providing cover fire for a funny-looking dog creature who is oblivious to everything except food. He twaddles along pleasant little paths and streams while you mercilessly gun down the hordes of freaky monsters bent on doing him harm. You can control him a little by shooting him: head shots knock him on his behind and slows him down for a second, body shots make him jump. Variations come up later, like the boss battle where you have to guide him down the river in his kayak by shooting his paddles, lest he get fouled up on rocks and eaten by a voracious river monster.
The cute and colorful gouraud-shaded graphics belie the nasty evil minions lurking amidst the spritey bushes, and the innocence of the puppet-show-like cutscenes is subverted by the funkiness assaulting this moon-doggy at every turn. Quite fun even without a light-gun.
