Games Master
The gameplay will certainly keep you on your toes as you have to run around and collect objects in order to succeed. With the inclusion of a password system, you could finish this within a week or two. Still it's a good game and I like it.
Jeder Besitzer eines Mega Drives sollte sich "Puggsy" einmal genauer anschauen. Hinter der zunächst simplen und zuckersüßen Jump´n´run-Fassade verbirgt sich ein zum Teil knüppelhartes Tüftelspiel mit tollen Ideen. Die zum Teil wirklich unfairen und unlogischen Passagen verwehren dem Titel jedoch ebenso wie die manchmal unpräzise Steuerung leider die volle Punktzahl. Fans von "The Humans", "Lemmings" und Co. greifen zu, ebenso Liebhaber von Mario, Sonic und anderen Plattformern!
Retrogaming History
Puggsy è un ottimo ibrido tra platform e puzzle game. Il titolo dei Traveller's Tales, infatti, non lascia nulla al caso: realizzazione tecnica di prim'ordine, buona varietà generale e generosa dotazione di livelli e oggetti con cui il protagonista dovrà interagire. Vivamente consigliato.
In sostanza, Puggsy è un buon puzzle game inserito in un discreto platform game.

Puggsy is zoals de titel al een beetje klinkt. Het is traag en de besturing is moeizaam. Kortom, het is een platformspel dat je maar beter kunt ontwijken. Er zijn er zat die beter zijn.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
A cute little character, but he's kind of sluggish. This looks like an Amiga game, which isn't bad, but it doesn't have great control or playability to go along with it's good looks. There is a lot of strategy and it's cute nature may appeal to kinds, but it get's a bit redundant after a while. Overall, it's a puzzle game and it takes a bit of patience to make it through some levels. Still, it's cute graphics will keep you coming back.
