The coin next to the machine on the far left was moved to the right of the machine in the US version, while it's on the left of it in the European version. This game has regional differences. However, emulators that attempt to emulate SRAM will bring to light an anti-piracy feature coded into the game. [8] Reviewing the Mega-CD version, GamePro praised the controls, the graphics, the sound effects, the strong challenge, and the attention to detail, concluding that "Though veteran gamers will quickly tire of Puggsy, younger players will enjoy his island antics. The game features 57 levels in a variety of settings (16 of those levels being secret) and 6 boss characters (9 boss characters in the Mega-CD version), although not all levels and bosses have to be finished to complete the game, and 5 training levels, accessed from the "Junior" option on the title screen. If you take five specific letters in A Hidden Place, stack them on top of each other, and push that stack through the exit gate, you can unlock interesting effects. [6], As the Mega Drive cartridge copiers were defaulted to simulate a battery-backed SRAM for storing save data, Puggsy uses an SRAM as a means of an anti-piracy feature. The system allows objects to be thrown, or to topple if stacked without care. In addition to this, after clearing a few levels the game will stop and present the player with a personal "gotcha" message from the Traveller's Tales devs. The chart below illustrates which levels from the main game were used for each Junior level. Although the official retail cart does not contain SRAM, the game attempts to write to it anyway in order to detect third-party copying devices (which always contain SRAM). All checks have different base values and distances. There’s a password feature to ensure you don’t have to play the entire game in one sitting, but it’s a huge pain to use. The US version also uses the music from A Hidden Place. The gameplay is mostly a cross between a normal platform game, with the usual style of platformer enemies and a variety of means to kill them, and a puzzle game of sorts where Puggsy is often required to find objects, and either carry them to a specific location or somehow use them in order to complete levels. kablam92 wrote: Speaking of older, I am surprised that nobody has mentioned Earthbound… Oh, the notorious five stages of EarthBound piracy.

[4] While the character design for Puggsy was retained from the demo, the developers changed his colour from red to orange to prevent the consoles from colour bleeding.

Other objects are extremely varied, including shells, weights, matches, keys, balloons, cups, barrels, clue-giving chests, knives, and candles. The game performs an SRAM check after its fifth level, and if an SRAM is found, it displays a warning message telling the player to stop playing a "silly" version of Puggsy.
