There are some basic guidelines to how Putty deals with certain enemies and hints to make Putty's mission more succesfull.
Absorb everything you can to keep Putty's pliability.
Putty cannot absorb anything mechanical
Everything mechanical is lethal to Putty
When Putty melts he cannot be damaged - enemies can walk over him, drop things on him etc.
Any enemy bigger than Putty can only be punched.
Some enemies cannot be destroyed and will drop missiles at Putty, avoid these.
Putty can sometimes get shooting enemies to kill each other, try bouncing Putty between them at the right time.
Going after the big enemies, though dangerous, can produce big rewards when succesfully destroyed.
If you have to release Bots from within Putty before reaching a place of safety, try doing it on a platform that is not usually inhabited by enemies.
Some enemies, when punched, will release a baby. Absorbing these gives Putty a bonus. Squashing or absorbing those same enemies will not release a baby.
Keep your eyes open for random objects falling from the sky, these will help to keeep Putty's pliability up.
