Overall, the problems with identifying elements aside, this is a fun little platformer, the graphics are jolly and for the most part the music is fine. It should while a few happy hours away.

Overall, Putty Squad is an enjoyable game that offers a wide variety of content. It nails the controls and interface, being easily accessible, and offers fun puzzles and platform antics. Unfortunately, due to its repetitive nature and frequent drops in frame-rate, it does detract from the fun. Fans of the original Putty Squad should get a lot of enjoyment from this, but for everyone else? Maybe wait for a price drop as it is quite high right now.
Nintendo Life (May 09, 2014)
Putty Squad is a slightly overpriced but well-produced, and a highly enjoyable game for fans of retro platformers; it's well suited for the Nintendo 3DS. The game is charming, imaginative and funny, and serves as a reminder as to why many Amiga platformers where so beloved in the '90s. It offers a lot of content and will be enjoyed by anyone who has a love for classic platform games, but there are rough edges which should have been dealt with before release.
The Guardian (May 11, 2014)
The globule is let down by level design that demands little of its diverse skill set, instead offering the player banal arrangements of ledges and gaps. Equally, the graphical upgrade has only served to dull the original's crisp pixel art and the game's use of the 3DS's display abilities is underwhelming. Putty Squad's playful character, then, is perhaps better served in memory than through this modern overhaul.
