* TheyJustDidntCare: While the 8 bit version is based on a decent ''VideoGame/PuyoPuyo'' engine gameplay wise, the graphics are atrocious. Most of the character portraits are scribble-like, the menus are very basic, and many bells and whistles that were present in the original ''Puzlow Kids'' version such as the victory fireworks and some of the music tracks from the Mega Drive rendition are inexplicably removed here.
** While the 16 bit version is a far more polished re-skin, it still has the odd sloppy detail (only one background recycled throughout, all the opponents' status boxes reading 'DR R' rather than their individual name, Beginner Course and Sound Test's unlocking procedure omitted). More debatably omitting 1 player's role in cutscenes altogether and rehashing the blatantly not robotic Carbuncle as 'Has Bean' may also count (in contrast to HAL's mascot with ''Kirby's Avalanche'', SOA seemed persistent they weren't personalising the game with Sonic).

** Skweel looks a lot like [[SpongebobSquarepants Patrick Star,]] even though this game came out 6 years before that show.

** One of the best themes in the game is the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6t9HvMXU2wo 2-Player Versus Theme]], a remix of the FinalBoss theme from the original ''PuyoPuyo''. Scenario mode also uses [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYEyAUu7kgY an epic "panic" version of the theme]] when your area overfills.

Added DiffLines:

* NightmareFuel: This variation really amps up the pressure during gameplay compared to the cutesy original. When your area begins to overfill, not only is the 'panic' theme a more sinister fast paced remix of Satan's theme, but most of your opponents start laughing evilly or bare a creepy SlasherSmile at you.

* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: Though many question the re skin and it's relevance as a Sonic game even with it, it's gameplay is considered as fun as the original ''Puyo'' game and a classic puzzle title even to those unexperienced with the Japanese franchise.
