==Different modes==
+
==Unlockables==
After collecting all Puffle-O's of Blue Sky, Soda Sunset, and the [[Box Dimension]], you would get the Epic Cannon, allowing the player to access Time Trials. After completing Time Trials in under 18 minutes, you would unlock Turbo Mode. If you completed every level in Turbo Mode, you could play the Slow Motion mode.
+
Various extra content could be unlocked by progressing through the game.
   
*Time Trials were essentially the regular levels, but your times were recorded.
+
If all the Puffle-O's in Blue Sky were collected, the [[Puffle Cannon]] was received. If all Puffle-O's in the entire game were collected, the [[Super Puffle Cannon]] was received and Time Trials were unlocked.
*Turbo Mode made the game faster than usual.
 
*Slow Motion made the game slower than usual, similar to the Slow Motion Cannon.
 
   
==Objects==
+
In Time Trials, the fastest time the player cleared each level is displayed in the level select menu, although these times are tracked before the mode is unlocked, but are not visible until it is unlocked. If the total fastest times for all levels was 18 minutes or less, Turbo Mode was unlocked.
*Green Cannons: They went either left, right, up or down.
 
*Blue Cannons: They fired as soon as your [[puffle]] entered them.
 
*Red Cannons: They spun very quickly and shot far. Timing was a must to using them.
 
*Purple Cannons: They could be rotated 360 degrees manually.
 
*Checkered Yellow Cannons: They served the same function as Blue Cannons, but were also mini-checkpoints.
 
*Green Balloons: They were powerful and trampoline-like.
 
*Purple Balloons: They were weak and filled with [[Cream Soda]].
 
*Slow Motion Cannons: They made the puffle slow (this cannon was only in the [[Box Dimension]]).
 
*Box Teleporters: They were used only in Box Dimension Levels.
 
*Gravity Boxes: They usually pointed down and switched up after tapping them with your puffle. Gravity reversed and your puffle would fall upwards instead of downwards.
 
*Launchers: They required the player to press the down key and use the left and right keys to change aim. They were similar to Catapults or Slingshots.
 
   
==Furniture==
+
In Turbo Mode, which can be activated or deactivated from the level select menu, the players's puffle moves much faster than usual. After reaching the goal in all 36 levels in Turbo Mode, Slow Motion was unlocked. If the A key is held in a level, slow motion is activated, functioning identical to the slow motion cannons.
Several furniture items were obtained by doing certain tasks in the game. They allowed entering the game Puffle Launch through an igloo.
+
*[[Puffle Cannon]]: obtained by earning all of the [[Puffle-O|Puffle O's]] in the first set of levels (Blue Sky).
+
==Objects==
*[[Super Puffle Cannon]]: obtaining all Puffle O's in the game.

*There was a glitch in level 35, in the section where the puffle would teleport madly in pattern between the boxes. Simply, the second blue cannon you could see in the teleport section, you had to miss it, fall back down to the bottom level, and you should fall all the way back to the front, but something strange would happen, and would literally break the fabric of the [[Box Dimension]].

Puffle Launch was a game in Club Penguin that was released on March 14th, 2011.[1] The game's focus was launching puffles in the air through cannons to collect Puffle-Os that "went missing". In addition, the player also had to fight Klepto, a crab who stole parts of various machines over the island, to continue collecting the puffle's famed treats. The game was exclusively available to members for worlds 2 and 3; though all players could play world 1, whose progress would be reset back to level 1 once the game was exited.

Puffles owned by the player could be used in the game (puffles released after the puffle were not available) and were selectable when the game started. If the player had no puffles, a red puffle would be used. Each puffle had their own unique helmet they wore.

Unlockables

Various extra content could be unlocked by progressing through the game.

If all the Puffle-O's in Blue Sky were collected, the Puffle Cannon was received. If all Puffle-O's in the entire game were collected, the Super Puffle Cannon was received and Time Trials were unlocked.

In Time Trials, the fastest time the player cleared each level is displayed in the level select menu, although these times are tracked before the mode is unlocked, but are not visible until it is unlocked. If the total fastest times for all levels was 18 minutes or less, Turbo Mode was unlocked.

In Turbo Mode, which can be activated or deactivated from the level select menu, the players's puffle moves much faster than usual. After reaching the goal in all 36 levels in Turbo Mode, Slow Motion was unlocked. If the A key is held in a level, slow motion is activated, functioning identical to the slow motion cannons.
