MobyRanks are listed below. You can read here for more information about MobyRank.
The game claims to be different each time the child plays, but the reality is that Putt-Putt's missing items merely change locations, and the pattern of item trading tends to be pretty obvious by the second or third trip through the game. Because of this, kids probably won't be as into it long-term, but it should take them a while to master it before it gets put aside (and in this regard, it's really no different from any other graphic adventure game, from Doom to Myst; once you've solved it, you're done).
Ouders Online (May 20, 1999)
Dit spel is veel moeilijker dan het eerste deel uit de serie rond Putt-Putt en is daarom pas geschikt voor kinderen vanaf vijf. Al een jaar heeft deze titel een vaste plaats in de collectie van Julia (6,5 jaar), geregeld haalt ze 'm nog tevoorschijn. Grootste nadeel is de hoge prijs, die ook voor dit programma van Transposia moet worden betaald. Het goede nieuws is echter dat een nieuwe titel van deze uitgever - Het geheim van Dracula dat in mei zal verschijnen — veel goedkoper wordt. Volgende maand hiervan een recensie.
Quandary (Jul, 1998)
Once more this Junior Adventure from Humongous is designed with multiple pathways so that the story changes and it can be played many times over. Putt-Putt's science report, for instance, might not be in the hands of the King; it might be in the museum or under the feet of a grazing dinosaur. It's aimed at the age group three to eight, but, as with my exemplary pupil, some young players will likely need parental guidance to complete the game. Also, it is out of reach of hearing impaired children because dialogue comprehension is an important part of play and the game is not subtitled.
