PuppetShow: Destiny Undone
Another good ERS game
This one is pretty much like the others. Not sure if it is 5 star because it is quite easy.
The graphics are good and the music is good to listen to during the game.
Has a hint button if you need it. Has a map also, but not all that helpful and not needed.
The flow of the game is pretty straight forward and easy to keep up with. Not a hard game and the puzzles are not that hard. There is not that much running around to find clues. When you find them you can use them pretty quick.
You should not need the hint button much. The HOS are not all the same. ERS is starting to change things up. Some are interactive.
A pretty easy game but fun. Good storyline.

Fantastic Sequel!! :)
As a great fan of this series, I had to purchase the Collector?s Edition and loved it, although this SE is also high recommendable!!
Find out which game Felicia plays this time?. You won?t stop playing, as you really want to know, what will happen next! Meanwhile the 5th game of this series and ERS are still improving!! Wellknown ERS-graphics, clear and detailed. And I love those creepy crawling insane Puppets. This time, we even get our own helper puppet!!
3 modes to choose from. Direction giving hint. Detailed journal and an interactive map, allowing us to jump from location to location. It?s possible to lock the inventory, so it won?t disappear every time?
Lots of interesting minigames/ puzzles (not too hard) and hidden object scenes from list (slightly interactive and played more than once) and those where we have to find items through silhouettes.
This game took me 4 hrs in the 2nd mode. Ending is sufficiently, though it looks like the villian will be back? The CE's bonus-chapter is not needed to understand the main-game
Differences to the Collector?s Edition: 10 puppets to find for our Puppet-Collection. Minigames and HOS are replayable in the CE-extras. In addition to the usual bonus extras, such as wallpaper, concept-art, screensaver? we have a collection of calendars.

Looking Forward To The Big Finish?
BASED ON DEMO
It is the finale, right? Cuz, you know, I thought the last one was! Still, I?m very happy that it wasn?t.
I have never been a huge fan of the Puppet Show series. I bought them and played and replayed them, but it was mostly the beauty of the artwork that appealed to me. Mechanical puppets never really took my fancy.
Until now. This game is even more beautiful than the others, but it is also more intriguing ? and sympathetic.
We are here to help Felicia find her father the Puppet Master, who?s gone missing in suspicious circumstances, but Felicia is acting weird.
And others reported seeing an old woman who, when we get a glimpse of her, is ominously familiar. And to top it all off we?ve got one of those nasty spider puppets bullying people and breaking stuff. So begin our investigations.
Along the way we save a trapped cat, are confronted by a ferocious dog, and get our very own spider puppet. Not, I would normally have said, a very cuddly sort of sidekick. But this one (I named mine Timmy) has these beautiful sad eyes, so shiny they seem to have a tear glistening about to drop. It?s enough to make your eyes water!
Timmy helps you get to those things you can?t reach, like all good sidekicks do.
We have both list and silhouette "find one to find another" HOs, plenty of puzzles, some look tricky, and there?s plenty to do in each scene.
Plenty of lovely scenery, one of my favourite bits was the tram ride. I?m hoping that will be our preferred mode of transport for at least a while.
And I look forward to finding out what Felicia is really up to this time.

Happy Days are here again!!
Don't know what it is that keeps drawing me back to this series but I just love them. This is the fifth one and I was very happy this morning when it came out in SE. The game is not too difficult to follow and the hidden object games are pretty good and have some mini-games in them! The sound and music are good. Some of the voices are a little to old for the children but so what. Hint button is a good help when needed. The map is inter-active and helps with the back and forth. It is well drawn and easy to see what needs to be found. There is a little helper for you when you can't reach items high up and he is not as creepy as the ones you are following. The story line is good and leaves the possibility open for another in the series. Yippee. I enjoy these games and I will play them over and over. I hope you will enjoy them too!

This is the second PuppetShow game I bought and I love it!
I have the feeling that a lot of time and love went into this game.
The graphics and the atmosphere are wonderful. The story is a little above average but not the best ever.
I have to admit that the main reason I'm giving this game 5 stars is the little puppet helper you get in the beginning.
This little guy is so adorable. Everytime he screamed "Geronimo" I laughed a little because it was just too cute.

another great puppet show game!!!!!
i own all these games and i enjoy all of them. in this one you are the detective trying to find the master. you are working with his daughter and of course the puppets are there but not as many as i have seen before. there seems to be only the one against you and you have one, that you can name, to help. i really enjoyed this game. hint/skip button charge fast and the hints do help.

More Creepy Puppets
This is a great sequel to the PuppetShow series, someone has kidnapped the puppet master and it's up to you to investigate and solve this mystery! The graphics are beautiful and it has a good storyline as well. The HOS are interactive and I will admit some of the items are very well hidden. Mini games are fun and you won't become frustrated trying to solve them, or you can always skip them. You will also receive your own creepy mechanical robot to help you with those hard to reach areas, and you get to name him as well. If you have played the other PuppetShow games you will certainly want to buy this one as well, if you haven't played them you should definatly go back to the beginning and play them all!

Nice way to end PuppetShow series - HOS errors, though
This is the fifth and final game of the PuppetShow series, and I'm glad to say it's come to an end. Not because I don't like them. On the contrary, I love the PS games, but after a while you just have to say it's time to end it. Here's what I loved best and where I felt the game fell short.
- The graphics were nice, very clear and visually appealing.
- Our little friend the nasty spider robot is back, wreaking havoc along the way.
- We get a cute helper spider robot of our own to go places we can't reach. And we get to name him! He looked like a Simon to me.
- The game felt rather long, which is nice. I'm always disappointed when you feel like you blow through a game so fast that you don't get to enjoy it.
- The map is helpful for those times when you need to go back to another area to complete a task.
- You can lock your inventory on the screen, so it's faster to access and you can easily see what you have at any time.
NOT SO GOOD
- Same PuppetShow music as all the previous games in the series. I just turn the music volume down as it gets very repetitive.
- There are several errors in the hidden object scenes where objects are mislabeled. The "scar" is really a handprint, the "curtains" are tassles and a "lamp" is actually a lantern. The latter posed a problem when there was an actual lamp also there in the HOS. A "sand glass" is really an hourglass, but that one was easier to figure out. There were also multiples of the same object such as a bow, but you could only pick one. It was a little frustrating.
- Sometimes you can pick when to skip dialogue, and sometimes you can't and you have to listen to the whole thing.
- The moral of the story expressed at the end was a little hokey.
Overall it's a fun game to play, with a mix of challenging and easy puzzles. I've always loved all of the creepy mechanical puppets for some reason and how creative the developers get with the design. It makes for an engaging game, one that anyone, from beginners to experts, would enjoy.
