Entertainment Weekly (Mar 17, 1995)
This impeccable British production is one of those rare CD-ROMs that can be enjoyed by both kids and adults-and its simple menu-driven interface guarantees that you'll keep it on your hard drive long after your other software has vanished.
Coming Soon Magazine (Jul 25, 1995)
It's hard to say which category "Hodj 'n' Podj" belongs to, because the game is like anything you have ever seen before. Although it can not be classified as an adventure game, a role playing-game, or any other category we use for computer games, "Hodj 'n' Podj" is a game.
PC Gamer (Jun, 1995)
A truly "G-rated" game that's fun for the entire family. Veteran PC gamers have seen it all before and may not care to see it again. Within its modest parameters, this is a solid and successful game design.
PC Games (Germany) (May, 1995)
Hodj‘n‘Podj verfügt über eine Unzahl an einstellbaren Schwierigkeitsgraden, die es auch jüngeren Spielern ermöglichen zu gewinnen. Im Zwei-Spieler-Modus macht dieses Produkt teilweise viel Spaß, beim Einzelspiel hingegen kommt leicht Langeweile auf. Daran ändern auch die zwar enthusiastisch dargebotenen, aber eher faden Kommentare des britischen Erzählers nicht viel.
Second and more important, though, is that the renditions of the puzzles in HODJ 'N' PODJ are not consistently top-notch. If it's true that everyone should get to play these time-honored classics, they should also get to play them at their best. But the videogame knockoffs in this game are horrid - “Pac-Rat” and “Archeroids” are sluggish and barely playable – and the traditional puzzles range in quality from excellent (“Peggelboz”) to clumsy (“Word Search”) and banal (“Art Parts”, a jigsaw puzzle with rectangular pieces). There is some good stuff in this package, but not nearly enough. Given what else is out there, even those with a pronounced puzzle craving should be able to do better than HODJ 'N' PODJ.
