DHGF: Putty Squad relies on the standard rules of 1990′s games by only allowing you to have two lives per attempt at a board. After that, you are knocked back out to the over world. When you complete a level, you carry forward whatever weapons you have, but if you happened to die once during that level, you won’t be rewarded with a new life. Instead, you will have to attempt the next level with only the single life. Lose it and you lose all of your weapons and are tediously sent back to the main screen. The game does provide you with a saving option, so that you can start a level over again with your weapons, but this is the worst game save system I’ve ever encountered.
