I'm Buying! for me just being an ERS game is enough, but then you make it another of a series, especially Puppetshow, then you have me at hello! easily my favorite series. it does deviate a bit but that's ok cuz I was afraid the series was over. the artistry is fab as always, real eye candy. love the HO's and mini games great puzzles. don't understand bad reviews, keep your modern city games, I'll take ERS scenery every time! please don't ever change your format! now I see that Maestro has made another appearance, bravo! my second favorite series, so I'm off to buy, don't ever need a demo with these guys! Yay September 12, 2014
Awesome game I'm loving this game. Normally I don't read the story, but this one caught my attention and I'm enjoying it. Although I do need to think about what to do next, there is a logical progression that actually makes sense. This is going down as one of my all time favorite games. September 2, 2014
OUTRAGEOUS... ERS HAS SLAMMED IT OUT OF THE PUPPET PARK!! I'm halfway through the game and was so excited about PS: Lightening Strikes that I took a break just to rate it because this game is that THAT GOOD!! I've been a fan of the Puppet Show series from the start but ERS has absolutely outdone themselves with this installment. There are certain games that have a signature and style that is so unique and unmistakable that you could identify the series by a single flashing image and Puppet Show is absolutely one of them. There is simply nothing else like it. This series has some of the most breathtaking, surprising, brilliantly twisted images in adventure gaming. Visually, Lightening Strikes is breathtaking. With outstanding art and technical direction evidenced by incredible cut scenes, fantastic voice overs, synced dialogues, and a diary equipped with a navigating map making travel to and from locations seamless, ERS has infused this game with the awesome animation and technical luxuries I've grown to love and appreciate in modern gaming. ERS also gives us an Evidence Board equipped with cut scenes which not only drives the plot forward but also becomes a game onto itself as significant events, characters and relationships must be correctly arranged to reveal the plot's mystery. This is just one of the many places where the developers have done a wonderful job with pacing creating a wonderful flow to the action that is aided by numerous and outstanding mini-games. HOS are creative and interactive, allowing gamers to choose whether or not they want a task list or an image of the required item. Objects in HOS can also be clearly seen (Thank You ERS!!!) and are not so small and obscure that the task, and ultimately the game, become tedious. And for the first time in a P.S. series there are boxed items (a definite favorite of mine) which become yet another game to literally piece together. There are no morphing objects in this game but there are collectible piggy banks in every scene with different monetary values that are used to restore famous historical sites which you can access throughout the game. So far, I am loving L.S.... and If you are a fan of the P.S. series this would be a definite "must play". Congratulations ERS for doing such a wonderful job with a classic series!! August 22, 2014
A Great Addition to the Series with Some Unexpected Twists When I saw the beta of this game I groaned because for me the Puppet Show series has never been one of my favorites. However, the last game in the series was better than I thought so I decide to give this one a try. Unfortunately, there were several things in the game that immediately put me off but I decided to slog on through and, surprisingly, found that the game gets much better as I moved through the story. I know that I can always count on the great artistic talents of the bunny team to give me a game with great graphics that always have their special touch. My only complaint about the game was that some of the voiceovers were annoying but most were very good. My other complaint is the tool fan. I wish that would go away forever. While some of ERS? newer games have included a custom gameplay mode this one does not and I wish it had been included. An interesting touch is that you can choose to play the game in either classic or in steampunk mode. I?ve tried both and don?t seem to be able to distinguish a difference. Now, I have to comment and please forgive me if I step on any toes, but I personally hate seeing someone smoking a cigar or a cigarette in a game. In this case it seems very odd that we have a man hanging from a rope by one hand and having a lit cigar in the other and seeming quite casual about the whole situation - just MHO, so please don't rake me over the coals for this comment. We have the standard tools that we find in this genre but, once again, I have to say please get rid of that danged fan. Although the fan doesn?t look like the pink fan that we initially find, it soon becomes our inventory box in the center of the screen. I think it takes up too much space and is annoying. At least in the early part of the game I don?t have a furry friend to help on my journey and that is okay with me. I have no idea if one will show up later but I?m guessing not. There is a map that we find early in the game along with our journal. I don?t like the map in this game and although it is easy to access I find it difficult to use. Yes it is a transporter type, which is always helpful but I don?t care for the mechanics. Since this is a HOPA game we find various HOS but they are different and I didn't encounter too many during the demo. Another thing that I don't care for is the HO list presentation being at the top of the screen. That being said the developer is making an effort to change its HOS and strives to at least keep things interesting. I happen to like the puzzles ERS puts in its games and know that even though early in the game they are generally easy, they do become more difficult (usually after the demo expires) as the game progresses. The CE stuff is becoming the same old thing that we find in all CE games, with some devs including more perks than others to get our attention. I generally go for the CE when there is a sale since I happen to like the inclusion of the in-game SG. Admittedly, ERS is one of my favorite game developers and after getting into the meat of the game, I have to say that this addition to the Puppet Show series is excellent. You should try the demo and at least give this game a fair trial before making up your own mind. August 21, 2014
I Love the Puppetshow! I can't tell you how excited I was to see another Puppetshow Game. I Love these. I own all the others & once again they didn't let me down. The story line,sound,visual & puzzles were all enjoyable. If you enjoyed any of these from the Puppetshow series, I feel you will enjoy this one too. I really loved the ending & how they left it open for another game to follow. September 5, 2014
The Puppet Show Series never disappoints While some series seem to get weaker with each new game, this new Puppet Show game once more managed to enthrall me. I have just finished the demo and will definitely buy this. The storyline is intriguing - young girls disappearing after being struck by lightning. Why and how - nobody knows. One investigates in 1888 Paris. The locations are very nicely created and several little movie scenes move the story forward at good space. We meet our old nemesis, the spider puppet and several other interestingly designed puppets and creatures. As always, the creators had a wealth of amazing visual ideas, it's always surprising what pops up in some corner. As others mentioned, this is a bit different from the previous games, though I have to say that I enjoy the new additions. There's a case book to sort clues, a nicely created Paris and a clairvoyant who helps along. There is however also still enough from the old games to keep the Puppet Show spirit. The game is simple (I played in casual mode), maybe even a bit to simple, but then it might be different on the other two difficulty levels. So far, I don't mind the handholding too much, though I can understand that it might not provide enough challenge for very seasoned players. For me, this is a nice relaxing game with a delightfully spooky theme. August 28, 2014
very good... a new way of playing this game is so good that it gives a new way of playing... i donno why someone says it's bad. i have been playing over 200 games so i can say it's worthly buying! keep work hards, the games designers! good job!! August 28, 2014
New PuppetShow! It's Like a Holiday! It seems to have been so long since the last Puppet Show game! It's actually silly how excited I get when I see there is a new one. In addition to the ingenious and beautiful artwork, even the music is superior to most games. Usually I just tolerate the music or even turn off my speakers but for Puppet Show I love the music and it is always a big part of the experience. I get a real kick out of the little diabolical and humorous touches that are always a part of the Puppet Show games. Thanks for making my day, Felix + ERS - this is definitely a keeper and I can't wait to play the whole thing! August 21, 2014
The lightning has struck me. Again Puppet show spins its magic. Such an absorbing game as it changes from fun to the reality of gathering clues to solve the mystery. The characters are good and sometimes scary. Its full of the unexpected. Gathering information while also interacting with the story is such a good idea. There is so much to do in this game which is a great follow on to the other in this series. I can't see how this game could fail to please. I bought them all and this will be a definite addition to my games. August 21, 2014
HIT BY A LIGHTNING BOLT I have all the PuppetShow games. . . and by far this is the best! The music, characters, storyline was just was I wanted. I loved the option changing the 'style' of play. . . steampunk vs. classic. Innovative. . .yet fun. ERS DOES IT AGAIN! August 27, 2014
