Die beiden witzigen Helden und die solide technische Aufmachung dürfen nicht darüber hinwegtäuschen, daß Puffy's Saga ein offensichtlicher Aufguß des alten Gauntlet-Spielprinzips ist. Wen das nicht stört, der wird von dem Rumgehopse in den zahlreichen Levels ein Weilchen lang gut unterhalten. Auf Dauer gibt das „Suchen. Schnappen- Ballern“-Spielprinzip nicht überwältigend viel her, aber Puffy‘s Saga gehört mit Sicherheit zu den besseren C64-Actionneuheiten der letzten Monate.

If you want to squeeze the last drop of enjoyment out of Puffy's Saga, a little exploration, some monster-bashing and a lot of puzzling is required. This makes Puffy's Saga sound like an excellent game, which it isn't. It's an above-average Gauntlet variant marred by a few basic faults, which include poor collision-detection and simple four-way movement. The multiload wont do cassette owners any favours either: the restart sequences, highscore tables and all the levels are loaded separately. For all it's cuteness, Puffy's Saga doesn't have the staying power to merit much attention.
