The player is DJ Puff the fire breathing dragon, set out to fry all your enemies in one puff. The objective of the game is to collect certain 'discs' spread across the game. The discs are either placed in hard to reach places, or appear after you defeat certain types of monsters. Basically you have to blast your way through or fly (jump) through treacherous terrain: water and bamboo sticks are one of many terrain types that can kill your character. Blasted monsters turn into 'bonus fruit' (yes, fruit) of which you can obtain for additional points.A unique attribute of DJ Puff is that you can modify the speed to a very wide range, therefore current CPU speed can be modified to suit the player (from 'Zzzzz' speed to 'Lightning' speed)
Never heard of this game? Well no wonder, it's not all that memorable.
This game does have a catchy tune, although one might see it as a slightly annoying. The colors are bright and cheerful and the game is challenging enough to keep you going, but not too difficult to frustrate you.
You're a little lizard by the name of DJ Puff and you have the amazing ability to jump, breathe fire, throw your scales or use power-ups (if you pick any up). With these simple methods you need to jump your way around the levels and take out enemies (for usually they're just in your way - with no way around them) to reach your goal.
As said there are some power-ups in the game, usually they're in the places which you don't need to visit to get on with the game, but they still can't be called hidden areas.
So jump and shoot your way through and make sure that your little lizard (I think it should be a cute fire breathing dragon) doesn't end up loosing all his (potentially thousands of years long) lives.
The only thing you can really choose with this game is whether you have or don't have a joystick. Everything else is pre-set. The game may attract your attention for a while and it does have a small level of replayability (at least until you find anything you'd rather be doing - which can be just about anything).
The game contains lots of hidden rooms and traps and you really have to just dodge everything and get as far through it as you can.
DJ Puff's Volcantic Capers is an okay cartoony platformer from Codemasters that doesn't really hold up well against other titles once the initial novelty wears off. The plot: you are a disco-loving dragon called DJ Puff (probably inspired by a certain Peter, Paul & Mary song). In an attempt to take over the world, some nasty guy has stolen all of your CDs and stashed them all over the volcanic islands of Hawaii. Your task of course is to get them all back.
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.
All your CD's have been stolen and stashed all over Hawaii. It's your task to go and find them, and get them back! For some unknown reason, stealing your CD's will assist the badass in taking over the world. Hey, I just played the game; I wouldn't know the logic behind it!
You can do what dragons to best and breathe fire at the enemies, singing them real nice like. You do this while running around the levels and collecting CD's. You have to get a certain number of CD's to progress to the next level. Generally DJ Puff is a lot like most platform games, and you can pretty much predict what to do.
The graphics are okay. You can see the enemies and it's all pretty and colourful. I found it a little bit lame, but we can't be expecting too much from the older games. The sound is ok too :), I give it a pass.
