The Atari Times (Jan 18, 2006)
The problem is that there are better games that are like this for the 2600. Kaboom springs instantly to mind. This game does not give you half the options that Kaboom does, and it wears thin very quickly because of it. Overall, Lost Luggage is a forgettable title, save for the random bras that you might see careening away from the luggage turntable.

Lost Luggage will test the eye/hand coordination of younger airport travellers - and their laugh reflexes as well. (...) We found that Lost Luggage can be played a lot like tennis. Use the center of the screen as your base. When a bag flies to one side, rush over to catch it, then quickly return to the center. This will keep you from having to rush from one side of the screen to the other and miss valuable points.
Tilt (Mar, 1983)
Une variante de Kaboom d'Activision plus originale mais moins rapide et finalement moins plaisante.
Atari HQ (2000)
Apart from some rough edges on the visuals, the biggest turn-off about Lost Luggage is that it is not sufficiently varied or challenging. By remaining as far up the playfield as possible, the skycap can snag most of the bags before they get a chance to fan out over the full width of the screen. Were it not in a position to be compared to Kaboom!, Lost Luggage would be considered a mildly amusing "pressure" game. As it stands, however, there are better alternatives than this Apollo dud and you're best advised to steer clear.
Digital Press - Classic Video Games (Dec 10, 2003)
This game is one example of a struggling third party developer attempting to capitalize on a popular theme but came up short on quality.
Woodgrain Wonderland (Jun 05, 2017)
Lost Luggage simply does not offer enough fun, depth or opportunity to succeed to warrant extended play.
8-bit Central Retro Gaming (2016)
Lost Luggage seems similar to Kaboom, but it offers enough differences including an interesting 2-player co-play option. The difficulty ramps up from difficult to completely insane in short order which tends to end my interest in the title. However I do like the 2-player version.
The Video Game Critic (Jul 06, 2005)
The game's only highlight occurs when you miss a suitcase, causing it to pop open, revealing "unmentionables" such as underwear, bras, socks, and shoes. It's cute, but that gimmick can't overcome the tepid gameplay.
