Putt Putt and Pep's Balloon-o-Rama is a mixed bag which I cannot recommend.
My friend sent me this game as part of the anime sale and while I love the anime of this franchise the Putt Putt game cannot live up to it.

Story - 0/10
While I love the story of the Putt Putt anime it's a shame there is little to no story in this game at all. I wanted some backstory between Putt Putt and Pep but unfortuntely many of my questions are left unanswered. I wanted to know why Putt Putt could talk and why Pep is okay with being kidnapped by a car. These questions still bother me and will continue to have a negative effect on me for a long while.

Gameplay - 10/10
The gameplay of this game is fantastic. I have never had more fun throwing a dog at balloons. It's even more fun than it is in real life just without having to hide the corpse afterwards. It's a bit unrealistic though as the police never knock at your door in this game and you never have to lie about you never seeing the dog that went missing.

Music - 1/10
The music is very bland and sounds a lot like the JoJo's bizarre adventure soundtrack so you know what to expect; trash. This low quality of audio does not suit this high quality of gameplay.

Graphics - 4/10
I really like the Minecraft look that these games go with nowadays. While I would've preferred the animation from the anime the pixelated Minecraft inspired look really gives it some charm.


Overall: After 62 levels I called it a day. ?/10

Game works great. I may be a adult now. But i grew up on these HE games. And im glad i can still have them to show what i grew up on. And even as a adult the game is challanging. Like that the game is not so advanced as some of these new games out. Great for kids. Thanks. and please keep it updated and working with new IOS.

It's just bouncing the dog off of Putt-Putt to pop the balloons. It's ok, but get's old fast even for kids. Not really worth spending money off. The real Putt-Putt games are great though. Kids love them. Just not this.

I had this game when I was 11 and had completely forgotten about it until I saw it on here. I LOVED this one, along with "Putt-Putt Goes To The Circus" and "Putt-Putt Travels Through Time". I will be buying those also. :) So glad these games are on here.

Nostalgia overload. Grab if you played this when you were 6 and want the waves of memories and simple times to rush over you. Otherwise, it's relatively mediocre for the price.

Recieved this game as a gift, and let me just say holy ♥♥♥♥.

I thought that this would be some ♥♥♥♥♥♥ game for 4 year olds, but boy was I wrong.
The deap and emotional story of Pep loosing all of Putt-Putt's balloons, and then being thrown into the room to save them is a heartwreching tale that can make you cry.

This Put Put game is just the mini game but it's great for early childhood gamers because it has a junior arcade mode to help them out. It's pretty much playing brick breaker but with balloons and a puppy. The interface is really easy to follow and great for the younger crowd. My daughter is 3 and she figured out how to play it pretty well.

The best version (so far) of one of this generation's finest games, Putt-Putt® and Pep's Balloon-o-Rama is testament to how much difference a graphical overhaul can make. Humongous Entertainment's ability to render worlds with caricatures of real Balloons, yet somehow more authentic than shot-for-shot recreations, is based on details. With this edition those details have been refined, expanded, and improved.

Putt-Putt® achieved everything that it needed to with Putt-Putt® and Pep's Balloon-o-Rama. It revitalised a series that had suffered real brand damage in Putt-Putt® and Pep's Dog on a Stick, and the second game in its Arcade series easily stands as the best game we've seen in years. There is absolutely no reason to miss out on this one.

An Instant Childhood Arcade Classic from the Days of my Childhood, in which you have to pop the balloons by guiding Putt Putt, all while bouncing Pep as you go through 120 Levels of Balloon Popping Fun!

This game is very similar to that of Breakout, a 1976 Atari arcade game & it contains old scenes from Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon, Putt-Putt Saves the Zoo & Fatty Bear's Birthday Surprise.

I can't eat, sleep or live without Putt-Putt® and Pep's Balloon-o-Rama.
This game has changed my life ever since the invention of Colored TVs and the internet.
Putt-Putt® and Pep's Balloon-o-Rama sets you in a post-apocalyptic world, driven by highly developed "C.A.R.S" (Controlling Airborne Radio Satellite) after the Balloon Wars struck the planet earth and killed all the humans. Here, world's chance to redeem itself lies into Pep, the world's last and most brutal Special Forces' K-9, trained for terrorist takedowns and body dismemberment. Alongside Pep, there's his sidekick; Putt-Putt. Don't let Putt-Putt trick you down with his sweet 8-year-old voice, he actually is a trained war machine, initially to end Pep's life, but now teamed up in order for a major deed.

Putt-Putt® and Pep's Balloon-o-Rama is a chance that MUST NOT be missed.
