What a beautiful game. This one had me entranced for hours - the gameplay is just so addictive. Never have so many balls given so much enjoyment to one so cynical. The graphics are superb and the sound effects comical and appropriate. Buy it, I can vouch that you will not be disappointed.

ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Puffy's Saga is great fun to play - all the puzzles and traps mean it will take a long time to master. Then you can go back and do it all over again using the other character.

ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Der Spielablauf ist schon ein wenig an Gauntlet angelehnt und läßt darüber hinaus auch Ähnlichkeiten mit dem Pac-Man-Schema erkennen. Trotzdem hat sich Claude Sablatou nicht damit begnügt, beides in einen Topf zu werfen, einmal kräftig umzurühren und daraus ein neues Spiel aufzukochen. Vielmehr ist es ihm gelungen, eigene Ideen mit einzubringen und so ein komplexes Programm mit erweitertem Gameplay zu schaffen, das auch nach langer Spieldauer noch Überraschungen bietet und somit den Spieler immmer wieder neu motiviert. Gratulation, Claude... und: Mach weiter so!

The One
Movement isn't overly fluid, although the jerky scrolling becomes less obvious as the action hots up. Puffy has a few innovative features, like the Magic Goms, but ultimately it's a little too similar to Gauntlet, and to cap it all, a little too difficult at times.

The Games Machine (UK)
Humour is added by the friendly bouncing main character and silly speech, and adds interest to an old-fashioned (and difficult) game. A practise option starts you at level seven with 2000 life-points, but even then you don't last long. A source of some amusement, but only an average game.

Power Play
Alles in allem erinnert “Puffy‘s Saga“ fatal an den Klassiker “Gauntlet“; im Gegensatz zum Vorbild hält sich der Spielwitz aber in Grenzen. Wer‘s nach “Gauntlet II“ immer noch nicht lassen kann, sollte Puffy einmal testspielen.

Entièrement pompé sur Gauntlet II, le jeu ne possède ni le scrolling de l'adaptation signée Us Gold, ni la possibilité de jouer à plusieurs qui fait pourtant 99% de l’intérêt de ce type de jeu. Il ne reste plus à Puffy' Saga que ses sons et graphismes de qualité, ainsi que la possibilité de voir le fameux château d'Ubi Soft sur la page de présentation, quand, comme moi, on ne le connaît pas...
