Virgin has created possibly the cutest and coolest platform character ever. There aren't enough words to describe how cool Cool Spot looks on the move thanks to some brilliant animation. All this is backed up with some delightful sound FX and amusingly laid back tunes. Gameplay is suitably relaxed also but don't think there's nothing to do, the levels are massive, maybe a little too big in fact. Graphically this isn't as stunning as the console versions but as it's half the price who cares? You'd be square not to get this one!

Cool Spot has been well animated, is graphically brilliant and plenty of amusing touches have been added to make this an exceptional platformer. Buy it or be a blockhead forever!
Amiga Power (Feb, 1994)
A smashing platformer with loads to love, but it lets itself down a bit on the technical side. You'll still be playing it for weeks, all the same, and have a good time doing it.

Cool Spot ist wohl neben Globdule einer der einfachsten Charaktere der Softwarebranche. Ein roter Punkt mit Armen, Beinen und einer Sonnenbrille. Daß dieser Junge jedoch so liebenswürdig wirken kann, ist nicht zuletzt den hervorragenden Animationen zuzuschreiben. Gerade in den letzten paar Wochen ist die Jump & Run-Konkurrenz aber recht groß geworden, so daß dieses wirklich gut gemachte Spiel teilweise leicht verblaßt.
Amiga Games (Jan, 1994)
Gut! Aber leider nicht gut genug! So lautet das Fazit des Cool Spot-Tests. Vor Mr. Nutz wäre dieses Spiel noch das absolut witzigste Amiga-Jump & Run geworden. Die Mega Drive-Version wurde fast tadellos umgesetzt, wobei der Sound sogar noch wesentlich eindrucksvoller geraten ist. Der Farben-Mißgriff beim zweiten Level und das leichte Ruckeln verhindern jedoch den Sprung von Cool Spot in die absolute Spitzenklasse. Fanatische Jump & Runner legen sieh jedoch neben Mr. Nutz auch noch Cool Spot zu!
Amiga Joker (Jan, 1994)
Okay, die fehlenden Levelcodes sind ein echtes Manko, aber dennoch: Für flotte Bildschirmhüpfer ist Cool Spot die beste Pille gegen Frühjahrsmüdigkeit!

Cool Spot is a bright and breezy platform romp by the seaside which, given a bit more care and attention to detail, could have been better than it actually is.
CU Amiga (Feb, 1994)
A well polished game, with plenty of small touches and all the other forms of garnish that make a good game great, but the lack of speed just leaves the game entertaining to watch, but a drag to play.
