Putty Squad PS4 - Video Game Review

Disclaimer: I received products  for review purposes. No other compensation was received. Though the product was free, opinions are 100% my very own. 

I may or may not have mentioned this before. I come from a household of video gamers. There is currently an Xbox 360 in the game room and every bedroom of the house (except for mine of course). There is also a PS3, PS4, Wii, WiiU, PSP and Nintendo DS around as well. There is no joking when it comes to gaming. While I may not be an expert, my parents and siblings are. Today is one of their reviews. Welcome to the Big Kids review. When Maximum Games offered to send one of their newest game to hit the market my brothers were delighted. Well so was I but I never get to play much. They never let me have the controller unless it's not plugged in. Even at a young age I wanted to have a controller in my hands and now that I'm older, they still try and fool me with a controller that doesn't work. When Maximum Games offered to send my brothers Putty Squad for the PS4 I thought here was a chance for me to actually play. Guess what? It wasn't.

Now a few of you may not know this but the big gamers like my daddy knows that Putty Squad has been around for quite a long time! We're talking since 1992. This is old school gaming at it's best for the modern console.

If you've played games such as Kirby's Adventures this would remind you very much of that. It is a very simplistic game, and if you think you would have difficulty there is a tutorial to guide you. Rated E for Everyone, this is a game for the entire family. Take a look at the game trailer before we go into our review.

The game boasts 50 levels all replayable, an extensive World Progression Map, Global Online Leaderboard, brand new time trial challenges and marathon modes. There is also a sticker book that allows players to collect and find hidden stickers throughout the various levels.

The game focuses on Putty who sets out on a quest to save his friends who are kidnapped. With a lot of morphing, inflating, stretching, squishing and also a bit of punching you or your kids would thoroughly enjoy this. Sure this isn't your classic shooter but that's what makes this game a lot of fun! There aren't any bad guys with guns but there are your "Terminator" carrots and sword wielding space men.

The graphics though don't quite take advantage of what the PS4 (a next gen console) has to offer. While they aren't your classic NES graphics we did wish that they were a lot better. It's set in a 2D world but don't let that deter you from enjoying a well thought out and delightful game. The game has gone through a complete graphic overhaul but retained most of its charm.

My brother Mikael has played this over and over and it has since become one of his favorite. It's great trying to beat your previous score and seeing your name on that leaderboard, or even seeing that trophy achievement pop up as well. The controls are very easy to use and if they would only let me play I know that me being 26 months old could absolutely do it!

Key Features:
  • Marathon Mode allows players to move through the game, level by putty-loving level. Move along the Putty World Progression Map or take a step back to improve your star rating.
  • In Challenge Mode, players pick a world and take on the challenges of Putty Squad perfection, going for gold stars on 7 set tasks within each world.
  • Putty Squad has undergone a complete graphical overhaul, with every level of the game put through a modern makeover.
  • Features full trophy and avatar support, brand new location-based unlockables, and hours upon hours of entertaining gameplay!

This is a fun game for the entire family and it's even fun for the first time gamers. If you're a fan of retro games then this is definitely for you! Putty Squad gets our TWO TINY THUMBS UP!

Putty Squad is available for the PS3, PS4, PS Vita and the Nintendo 3DS ranging in prices $19.99 - $29.99 making it a very affordable game as well.

  1. We have the Wii, but I am not much of a video gamer. My Daughters significant other on the other hand is huge into the XBox. He plays games online with others .... not sure what he does but they seem to have a good time doing it.

  2. We only have a Wii and each of the boys have 3DS's, but this game looks like one they would love. They are both into Mario and Pokemon and this looks like it's along those lines.

  3. This game looks like so much fun! Even I would enjoy playing it, and I am totally not a video gamer.

  4. I have the hardest time finding suitable games for my youngest. This looks like it might have been a fit, but it isn't available for Wii.

  5. haha this is cute - for now, I am addicted with playroom in ps4 - its not much of a game but an amusement lol!

  6. This looks like a great game! The only games we play at our house on are our phones, but we're debating on getting a Wii! Might be fun to have!

  7. I'm not big into video games, but I know that my oldest son would absolutely have a blast playing this! Looks fun!

  8. Kevin totally has a PS4 and is addicted to it. He got the girls hooked on Disney Infinity. And they truly love playing it. Might have to look into this, too for them now :)

  9. This looks like a really fun game. I don't play them but my boys sure do. They both love the Xbox.

  10. I think this game is something my boys would absolutely love! And they wouldn't mind the graphics that aren't to the limit of what the PS4 can handle; because they are used to an OLD Wii. lol.

  11. This looks like a game my whole family would love. The kids are both gamers, and my husband can get into some Super Monkey Ball or Mario.

  12. Son would love this game for sure he is all about fun.

  13. I love video games and hoping my son will too. He's a little bit younger than you Madison so he might be getting the unplugged controller too hehehe. I've not seen this game so I will have to share with my husband and see if he wants to maybe rent it!

  14. These video games look child friendly. I really don't play video games, but my son loves them

  15. That really brings me back to some old favorite video games. I actually like the looks of this one.

  16. I can tell from those pictures that this is one of those games I would get addicted to. My youngest is our gamer and he would also love it. I will have to check this out for Easter.

  17. We have so many gaming stuff in our household too. And only my husband uses it. Thanks for a great review, the game looks really fun.

  18. Wow yes that is a lot of gaming devices. I remember Putty Squad, my brother is reading this along with me and he remembers it too. I think it was for Atari at the time. It used to be a lot of fun then and yes it was a bit like Kirby. $30 for a next gen game is really awesome too. My brother owns a PS4 so he's going to get it. That's 1/2 the price of a shooter. :) Thanks for the review and bringing back memories.

  19. We have the Xbox and PS2 system here in our house. Needless to say hubs and I are gamers. Lately, it's just been here collecting dust.

  20. This looks like a fun video game. My 13 year old is the "gamer" in our house. I will have to get him to check it out (Kim)

  21. My second oldest was a gamer. I miss that kid (he grew up and moved out on us). ;) The graphics on this game look cool!

  22. We have every game system you can have. I am not familiar with this game, sounds interesting

  23. That looks like a really fun game. Everyone in our house are avid gamers too! lol We have all the Xbox console even the new Xbox one. We have the DS and my son has been begging for the 3 DS We also have the Wii u!

  24. My guys love video games too. We don't have this new console yet but I have been hearing some great things about it.

  25. I loved kirby when he first came out (which makes me old!). We have a wii and my kids love it!

  26. Looks like a cute game. We have probably every system out there. lol

  27. This game looks super cute. I have to pick it up my grandaughter would love it.

  28. My daughter is just about to the age that we are going to be playing video games. I bet she'd like this one!

  29. For a game that is a remake of a just about 20 year old game I think its pretty fun.Made an incredible showing staying devoted to its SNES counterpart.There isn't much to expect regarding ground breaking next-gen (or is it current now?) game play/graphics.It's still a fun yet straight forward game.I can see Putty Squad getting disregarded yet in the event that you like exemplary 2D sidescroller game play or recall playing this some time ago you may need to look at it.
