Gameplay is standard platform fare with really nothing new to speak of. In each level, you must collect a certain number of CDs required to pass to the next one. Your attacks mostly include various fire-breathing tricks, but you can also toss bombs by collecting power-ups.
DJ Puff is better than its earlier counterpart, CJ In The USA, a game starring you as a cartoon elephant and uses the exact same engine. Mainly it's only because DJ Puff has more colorful graphics and better music. The levels all start to look the same after a while, and there is no new surprise in store at all: just collect the CDs, level after level. The game is worth a try for anyone who likes Codemasters' cartoon-style games, if only for a few minutes.
