If you're tired of swinging swords, rescuing princesses, fighting dragons and casting spells, you'll want to take note of Puggsy by Psygnosis. This comic action cart is always fun, often hilarious and offers solid challenges for action and puzzle/maze gamers alike. Puggsy features crisp, colorful graphics, wonderful music and great sound effects. It even has a special Junior level for younger gamers.
The star of the game is Puggsy, an alien who has had his spaceship stolen by raccoons. The masked bandits have taken his ship to Raclantis as a trophy for their ruler. Puggsy's fun-filled quest takes place over 51 levels, through 17 locations. Defeat the five World Guardians and you get to battle the final Guardian for your ride home.
Each level of Puggsy is a puzzle. Most levels contain what are called "events." These take the form of switches, locks, ropes, cannons, etc. and are activated by using one of the objects Puggsy can pick up and use. Event/object combinations can be as simple as a key in a lock or as complex as setting multiple switches.
Some situations can only be solved by getting your enemies to help! In the Pyramids, for example, Puggsy must get the enemy character to follow him and solve the puzzle. Each of the locations, such as the Beach, Splinter Town and Star Fall Lake, contain multiple levels that get progressively more challenging.
