A New Update is out Now

Hello Everyone,

A new update for Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon is now available which contains the following:

  • I have updated ScummVM from 1.6.0 to 1.7.0 across Windows, OS X and GNU/Linux.
  • opengl_nearest is the new display renderer. This provides really sharp looking graphics and also ensures 100% Steam Overlay functionality for Windows. It runs at your monitors current resolution.
  • I have completely re-written the shell launcher for GNU/Linux and implemented a new libraries system. This should allow for many more users of GNU/Linux to play the game and not just people on the latest versions of Ubuntu and Mint.
  • The Modern ScummVM skin now works on GNU/Linux. You can access the ScummVM menu by pressing CTRL+F5 (or Fn+F5 for Mac OS X) at any time.
  • ScummVM source code has been updated to 1.7.0. SDL source code is now included.

Enjoy the update and thank you for playing :)

“There are also a couple hidden fun games such as Bear Stormin' -- fly a biplane in a bear and pop balloons and fly through barns -- for kids to play as they explore the moon. Overall, this game is really well done and is a worthwhile purchase which will keep the kids busy for hours.”

Purple Car Lands on the Moon!

Due to a freak accident at the Fireworks Factory, Putt-Putt® is blasted to the moon. There he meets Rover, a lovely little lunar terrain vehicle left behind by the astronauts.

Putt-Putt® Goes to the Moon teaches the benefit of cooperation and the lasting value of friendship.

Putt-Putt® Goes to the Moon is an adventure game designed especially for children. Bursting with state-of-the-art animation, dazzling sound, hundreds of Click Points, and fully talking characters to thrill you and your child, Putt-Putt's® world unfolds around your child's actions - enhancing problem-solving skills and teaching valuable lessons along the way.

Putt Putt goes to the moon is a frightening cautionary tale about the consequences of an unregulated space research program. Countries need to ensure that their space exploration board has the proper funding to enforce all important safety constraints and prevent such incidents happening in the future. I only hope that the politicians and those in charge of space program budgets take heed of such events.

An Instant Childhood Classic from the Days of my Childhood which is a joy to play for Windows PCs, MS-DOS PCs & even the Panasonic 3DO Consoles in which you help Putt Return to Earth with his new friend Rover by Collecting all the parts for the Space Rocket on the Moon.

As for the Voices in the game, I prefer the US Version over the Japanese Version when it comes to the Panasonic 3DO Import Version.

During the late 90’s/early 2000’s Humongous Entertainment released an absolutely fantastic stream of “edutainment” point and click adventures for children. These titles focus on a range of light academics including basic geography, basic to upper elementary level mathematics, logical thinking, critical thinking and puzzle solving, topped off with reinforcement of good manners and polite social etiquette. At the lower end of the age spectrum, they may require some adult supervision and supportive guidance, but there is no better series of games for a child’s first venture into PC gaming.

Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon is the nearest and dearest to my heart in the Humongous Entertainment lineup. I spent way too many hours as a child exploring the moon and helping Rover get home again and again. I think a lot of my infatuation with it can be credited to my strong interest in astronomy as a child, but Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon is still a masterful game and I cannot wait to share it with my children some day.

I knew getting back in the "dating game" would be a challenge after being out of it for over 10,000 years. When I was released from the privilege mines, I had to learn all the new things "the dating crowd" was trying. I knew about scented CIS skulls and gluten-free cardboard, and sure was glad to hear people still use them. But I had no idea that "video games" were so popular with the "romantics" out there. All it took was one stroll through the Steam Store to prove I had to learn a new thing.

"Where to start?", I wondered. I wanted something simple. However, all I saw in the store was console ports that were covered with $19.99 DLC and feminism, or designed to somehow "heat" your NVIDIA card. No way, Jose! (I experienced the "heat" thing personally once after an adventurous incident with an XBox. I'll stick with "room temperature" from now on, thank you very much.)

Luckily, I found a plain, old-fashioned video game that would not make me empty my pockets into the deepest bowels of Gaben himself. And it came in this HUGE bundle! No more awkward late-night Baal runs for me, once I could get my hands on this game. Now, I admit the graphics are not all that good. But after selling the ol' PS Vita and borrowing some cash from Aunt Irma, I was ready to "checkout".

The product only took a week to download, and got to my computer just in time for my first real "date" since the Chex Quest incident. You can bet I was nervous for this one. When I got off the bus to meet Kojima in front of the Gamestop, I just about had a heart attack! The only thing keeping me calm was knowing that I could not possibly run out of video games that night. I gave Kojima a reassuring nod and smile, as if to say "Don't worry, Carla, I have plenty of vidya for later."

The dinner was great, and after knocking back a couple glasses of alka seltzer, we were ready to head back to my apartment. I winked and told Carla, "Let's ABANDON THIS THREAD," to see if she understood the gaming lingo. I think she did. Throughout the bus ride back, I grinned and hummed Gone Home tunes to set the mood.

When we got to my place, I already had a song playing. It was by "Protomen", which I think you pronounce like Protozoa, because it is an exotic unicellular eukaryotic organisms that sounds just like real fedoras. After we got comfortable, I asked Kojima if she could help me with the video games. She looked at me weird, and I couldn't tell if it was because she thought it was "too soon" or because I was vigorously wiggling my eyebrows just like my hero Putt-Putt.

So I "took the initiative", as women like men to do, and rolled my computer out. "Ready to pay your respects?" I joked, and by "pay your respects" I meant "watch me pretend to be a car." She looked at me all shocked, and said "That's it, I'm out of here!" I asked why, since she didn't need to run to Gamestop for any games - there was plenty right here. But she didn't answer, and got up to leave anyway. Then, as Kojima was about to pass me and the computer, she tripped on my dog Pep and activated my trap card! The force of my Mirror Force card knocked over my computer and ripped apart my Mountain Dew collection, sending 20 gallons of carbonated soft drink across my faux-hardwood floors.

Kojima was completely drenched, and her momentum slid her to the front door - which she somehow managed to pry open with a pair of 2-litre Mountain Dew bottles. The last thing I knew, "No-Fun Kojima" was screaming profanities and sliding down three flights of steps. I didn't pay much attention because I was too busy trying to check my privilege. I managed to get about half of it checked - the other half probably offended tumblr. I never bothered to ask if she appreciated the free gift of Mountain Dew.

Anyway, despite my "user error", I was quite pleased with the product. These days it's hard to find such a classic game, and you can find it right here at a discount price! I have to say I can't give this product a perfect review, because I can't figure out what I'm supposed to do at the rocket station. I've tried making millions of rockets but they all just sort of peter out and explode half-way. Aside from that artificial difficulty, I will definitely recommend this movie.

Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon is a visionary masterpiece

PPGttM is a game that does not pull its punches, from stunning scenery, experiencing the dangers of moon-goo firsthand, puzzles that challenge even the most adept point and click adventurer and a protagonist that defies both racial and gender constructs plaguing modern video games.

Putt-Putt's adventure on the moon is a pseudo-cinematic experience with true depth that cannot be found in other open world video games. With an amazing cast of full voice acted NPCs, you and your friends will be repeating the snappy one-liners like "Buckle your seatbelt Putt-Putt, you’re going for a ride!" for years to come.

10/10, the Citizen Kane of video games.

You can tell they were getting more into the swing of things with this one, it's far longer than the first installment and doesn't basically beat itself either. The randomness is still very limited, though, so it's a bit lacking in replayability. I've not played this one before now, admittedly, but it's solid enough I suppose.

Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon is a bit better than the previous game. At least, this time there is actually some semblance of a plot, and the puzzles don't feel like chores quite as much as they did in Putt-Putt Joins the Parade. But overall, it's still not that great. I probably wouldn't recommend buying it unless you played it as a kid and desperate for some nostalgia. (Don't get your hopes up, you probably won't find it as fun as you remember.)
