“The dark magic at the heart of Poof is that the objective is so simple, but the designers always give you one too many things to comfortably think about at any given time.”

About the Game

Poöf has been tricked by accepting a golden laying kitten. But the precious kitty makes all the greedy monsters envious. Survive waves of monsters trying to steal your revenue!

Poöf vs the cursed kitty is a mix between tower defense, and platforming action, a game focused on hardcore gameplay, tight controls and choices, inspired by games such as Mario Bros Arcade Game, Orcs Must Die and Super Crate Box.

To get rid of your enemies, simply jump on them, or place towers to attack and poos to slow down, use fire knives or bombs, ice winds to freeze enemies and golden eggs for Armageddon ! You can also control time: slow it down in danger moments and accelerate it to increase the difficulty and score more points. How fast will you play?

Poof was pretty fun to play and can get very challenging. You play as a dog protecting a cat from enemies that come through doors and move around the stage towards the cat you have tied up. The stage layout is the same but you can unlock different skins for it.

You defeat the enemies by jumping on them or collecting power ups scattered around the stage. Many of these will also need to be unlocked through completing challenges. Every 3 challenges you complete you get one unlock point. You can get a flaming knife that will fly in a straight line killing any enemy it hits. An electrical tower you can place that will shock your enemy when it gets close by. A few other items will help you too like ice to freeze or hearts for health and they can also be turned into poop to slow the enemy.

Challenges do become pretty tough and the bad thing is you only get 3 at a time and need to do all three before getting new ones. So progress can become slow on unlocking everything in the game. There is no story just a short quick game you can pop on and play for five minutes or 5 hours if you like. It is fun to play and for the low price it's at you'll definitely get your money from it.

Bear Pros:
Fun and cute platforming RTS
Lots of unlockables
Challenging missions

Bear Cons:
May be to challenging early on for some
Only one map to play on
No new challenges until all three are complete

Poof truly surprised me when I started it up just to collect the cards. I ended up playing for hours, and having a blast. Poof really is a game that I believe needs more attention. In Poof you play as a heroic little dog who's duty is to protect the cat from enemies that spawn out of doors on the side of the level. The fast paced gameplay is where I believe this game shines. It plays similar to Mario Bros the arcade game from 1983, but it also stirs things up by adding tower defense elements. Jumping on baddies heads will kill them, but there is also a variety of power ups to make things more interesting. Every round you have three challenges to complete and once you complete them you earn a unlock point which you can use to unlock a new power up or perk. You have to beat all three challenges to do this (no skipping challenges) and you have to unlock each power up/perk one after another. Some may dislike this as it takes some freedom away from the player, but personally I found that it kept me trying to complete the challenge.
Each level is the exact same layout (well you eventually can expand it a bit) which is another thing that will be mildly disappointing and repetitive to some. That being said, from each match you gain exp towards unlocking new level skins, costumes, and music, a feature that I really enjoyed. The artwork has a very cartoony cute feel to it, although I wish there was a bigger variety of enemies. I played with a Pc Xbox controller, not sure how controls feel otherwise. Poof is not a mind blowing game, but definitely a game that needs some more credit than what it gets.
(Keep in mind, this review was written when I was 4.7 hours into the game. I may change my opinions later.)
Pros:
+ Enjoyable platforming
+ Full controller support
+ Cute character design and art
+ Golden poo
+ Variety of unlockables (powerups, skins, costumes, music..etc)
Cons:
- Would gain from having more level layouts
- Sometimes some of the challenges are too hard
- Larger amount of enemies would be nice
- Floaty controls take some getting use too

Having 100% completed the game, I can say that it's not that great. Unfortunately due to Steam's binary review system, I can only recommend it, or not recommend it, and so I'm going with the latter.
First off, the unlock system was poorly designed. It has both progressive gameplay features, such as turrets and other items, and also cosmetic items such as backgrounds and costumes. You are given tokens to unlock the gameplay items/features, but they're pretty pointless because you have to unlock all of the features/items in its tier (maximum of three) before unlocking the next set of items. It's like skill trees from RPGs, only there's just one of them, and you don't have a choice. The cosmetic items on the other hand, are a nice touch but they're randomized so you can't actually choose them.
The gameplay is interesting, and is definitely different, however it just feels really poorly thought out and broken. The difficulty is just a side effect of the poorly designed concept; it's stuck in this limbo of tower defense and platformer but doesn't do either very well. This is especially apparent in the later levels, when it just becomes a big spamfest of items and the platforming and tower defense elements are all but gone.

I only really wanted to outline the bad things about the game, there are definitely positives to it but I just feel the negatives outweigh them too much.

Poöf is basically an action defense platformer. It's also a bit crazy: in it you are, after all, a hat-enthusiast doggy with a magic kitten that poops golden eggs. Monsters want the kitten too. The curse is that you will DIE if they get the kitten so, ironically, you need to defend it with your life.

Basic idea is simple. Monsters come through doors that are scattered over the level, and you must kill them before they get to the kitten. You can jump on them like Mario or kill them with special items or defensive structures that can be placed in the assigned places. Being a dog you can also poop - yes, poop - golden poop that slows down anything that passes over or through it.

Playing along, you get more items and abilities. There's just this one disappointing thing about the game: there's only one map. Granted, I do not think I spoil too much if I reveal that as you complete missions, you will eventually unlock new areas in the one map. These spawn new, usually more dangerous monster types. Also the style changes: you'll be wearing different hats and outfits, as is the kitty and the level's appearance will change randomly between games as well. It won't fool anyone, but is a nice change for the ever-repeating map.

Besides the single map, the game is quite fun for a while, and it's rather cheap. If you really get into it, you can try to work your way up the global leaderboards.

One last thing: At the time of the writing, Poof's cards are quite expensive. While the recent sale has lowered their price a bit, you can still get quite a large penny back just by selling the cards. Check the market for the current situation though.
