PuppetShow: Lost Town
Weaker than the first, but still a good game.
Really enjoyed the first game of the series, then I played this one second (although it is the 3rd in the series). The two games have are awfully similar, and there wasn't much to advance the story beyond what we already learned from the first game. There was a good plot introduction at the beginning, but then a large chunk of the game in the middle was puzzle after puzzle (which were all very good) with little or no story, and then things picked up again at the end.
I enjoy playing Big Fish titles because they typically have a nice story element that enriches the game beyond the average hidden object game. Lost Town was still a lot of fun to explore, and the puzzles were all excellent (a few were quite challenging), so I enjoyed the play-through, but overall it felt like a weaker game than the original... especially if you focus on the story element of these games. For me, that's one of the main reasons to purchase 4 games in a series... to get the rest of the story!
If you loved the first, you'll still enjoy this one, but if the first title wasn't a hit in your book, I doubt you're going to like this one any better.

This is my first time playing PuppetShow series. The beautiful graphic of Puppet Show caught my eyes, which I decided to buy it. I also enjoy the music. It sounds relaxing and mysterious at the same time (and sometimes, it's really creepy).
At first, the story is very interesting to keep me playing. I want to find out more about the Lost Town and Suzy. However, I'm not satisfied the ending. And I'm getting bored after meeting Fecilia... Between Suzy and the Town, they DON'T HAVE ANY CONNECTION AT ALL. I still feel like the game is missing something important about the history of the Lost Town. I simply know the Town has an illness, which makes people die. Then, they decide to replace humans with puppets. The cause of the illness is unknown, including some mysterious crystal and many thing more!
I believe Puppet Show will continue the Lost Town story, so I'm looking forward to playing more.
The riddles are interesting, and getting harder at the end. The graphic is not too dark to find the Objects, so I enjoy finding them! I still remember the first Object Finding in Puppet Show: Lost Town... If you notice, you will see the eyes of Doll and Puppet are moving and looking at your arrows. It really makes me scared :D.

I loved playing this game so much!!!In the end I chose to purchase the Puppetville return to Joyville collectors edition but this game was what made me like it, and this game rocks as well!

Fun game, good graphics, lots and of back and forth. HOGS and mini games are fairly easy and I played on expert mode. There was no map or journal and only hints during HOGS. Took me about 2 1/2 hours to complete the whole game so fairly short also.

The graphics alone are beyond words! A great challenge without being too difficult. The storyline was captivating and you really wanted to discover the next clues and places to explore.

This is the only PuppetShow game I've played and I really enjoyed it. This developer never disappoints. The hidden object scenes are well drawn and not too difficult. The puzzles are challenging, but solvable with some thinking. There is a lot of backtracking which may bother some. It was sometimes difficult for me to remember which places I needed to go back to and with what! All and all, a good way to spend a few hours.

Puppet Show series succeeds again!
I'm a little tired of the gloom & doom HOGs but this series is well worth it. The graphics are always gorgeous and the puzzles are usually interesting.
There was a little too much running back & forth from place to place, but that was a minor quibble. The storyline is a little on the meh side, but that's never a big consideration for me, so it didn't make much difference to me.
