PuppetShow: Mystery of Joyville
This was probably the first HOA game I played way back in the day. I loved it then, and decided to get it again mainly for nostalgic reasons. This game is a little dated compared to others out there, but to me, this is a great classic. I've never played the sequels so I am stoked to finally play them!
Graphics are a bit dated, and the puzzles are not very challenging. The music is repetitive, but spooky and really adds to the game.

Having fun with Felicia.
Playing my Joyville games again. These games from ERS are the best. Beautiful artwork and fun stories.

When I played free for an hour, really did not like it. Then I bought one and, that was it. The HO'S clear easy to find but not really all of them. I liked that. No hints on the regular game it, makes you use you brains. I purchased a CE there you can get a lot of help. I like that some time. Enjoy don't be hesitant. Like me.

Great beginning of a great series!
This is the beginning game in the PuppetShow series and it is a wonderful mix of weird and bizarre happenings in the burnt out shell of a puppet theatre. The HOS are great, the graphics and storyline truly original, and there is some great dark humour. I have played all of the games in the series, and they are all equally fun!

First of the Series -- A Must-Play!
Very fun game with a great atmosphere. The theme is a bit spooky, but not overly dark -- I really enjoyed it!
The game itself is a very pleasant level of challenge... it was a tad on the easy side, but the play-through was so enjoyable I didn't mind that I was able to advance from scene to scene so quickly. I enjoyed exploring so much that I was glad I didn't get stuck anywhere for very long.
If you haven't played it yet, you really ought to check out this title as a great game that will launch you into a (so far) fantastic series.

The Beginning of an obsession
This was the second HOG I played, and the first that involved puzzles. I was immediately gripped by the graphics, costume and character design and as well by the macob theme. It's one of those games you play straight through beginning to end. Soon as the next one came out I had to get it as well.

Well worth the money!!
I have all the PuppetShow games. Love them all. This is the 1st in the series, and they just build on each other. The graphics/sound/storyline are all excellent. Some of the puzzles are a little tricky, but heh. I want MORE !!

I'm loving it!
Personally to me, this is my most favorite ERS games and in the PuppetShow series. The thing that I wish there is is the voice over. To me everything else in this game is perfect to the notch. I play this game over and over and to me it is a classic. I have owned all the games in the series thanks to this one. Play this game to know all the stories behind the PS series :)

Another great game from Ers
I really like this series of HOGs. The graphics are great and the HOGs aren't too difficult to find objects. Good games for the intermediate player.
