Video Games & Computer Entertainment (Dec, 1994)
With 18 levels in all, this is an excellent game - particularly on the Super Game Boy, where each level has its own special color. The gameplay is challenging enough to become addictive.
Computer and Video Games (CVG) (Dec, 1994)
It borrows much from its 16 bit cousin, but sometimes this is irritating; flying objects can be difficult to distinguish, and a bugger to avoid or kill. In both games there are bonuses to speed you on your way, but much of the game's appeal is the lush graphics on the SNES which can't be repeated here. The varied levels make up for this with Tetris-style vertical scrollers being the most fun. The Game Boy version is not a bad game, but it's not brill' either.

Die Game-Boy-Version ist spielerisch ähnlich wie der 16-Bit-Bruder aufgebaut, grafisch wirkt sie allerdings eher langweilig.
GamePro (US) (Dec, 1994)
The solid graphics keep you playing. Although the backgrounds are pretty bland, the foregrounds are nicely detailed and feature sharp-looking enemies. The sounds are adequate and support the visuals with atmospheric music, but they need more sound effects. Unfortunately, it's the poor control you'll remember. Pagemaster may make you a Rage master this holiday season.
Total! (Germany) (Dec, 1994)
Mäßige Jump&Run-Arbeit mit netten Ideen aber sehr gewöhnungsbedürftiger Steuerung, so könnte man die Pagemaster-Module in einem Satz beschreiben. Wir können nur hoffen, daß der Film besser wird als die drei vorab präsentierten Games.
