WOW! NOT JUST A GAME BUT A JOURNEY...
Have purchased all three PuppetShow games through BFG and all very recently. Once played, like reading a good book, it's very difficult to simply walk away. I was absolutely terrified and hypnotized by the awesome, far-reaching and extraordinary theme, artistry and music. Haunting. Daunting. Not for young children or the faint-hearted. Enjoyed the hidden objects, mini-games and moreso, that I did not use or need a walkthrough. It is very important to be thorough in searching the scenes and, thereby, pick up needed objects for successful gameplay. On to another PuppetShow game. I will be playing these over and over for sure. Congratulations to ERS for a really great game that I have added to my "Collection" of "Keepers" and thank you to BFG as the greatest Gaming Site and superb Customer Service.

Entertaining and Loads of Fun!
This game has an excellent storyline, with just the right amount of tension to keep you on your toes. The puzzles are challenging, yet easy enough to enjoy.(Little need to use the Skip button) I found the characters delightful.They lkind of pull on the heart strings.
All in all, I enjoy this game enough to play it over and over again without ever losing interest. It is one (of my many) favorite Big Fish games.

I have bought all three installment (lost town, mystery of Joyville and this one) and every time i finish a game i am a little disappointed: I have already finished? I wanna more, i crave more. Perhaps i am a little addicted to Big Fish games (a little lot), but i sure recommend it.

Sucking you even deeper...
Souls of the Innocent is a direct sequal to Joyville, not only in story but in terms of game development too.
Sound and music remained as chilling but quickly same-y as before, and once again we are offered our story and plot by way of text rather than voice overs - which is something I don't mind in the least.
Evolving from Joyville, Souls has two difficulty levels which boil down to with sparkles or without, and 'hard' slows down your hint timer.
The graphics and image quality remain as steampunk chic as before but take further steps into the haunting. There are definitely some images in here that would be considered non-kid-friendly. Those whose age is in single figures should have the full game pre-played by an adult who knows them, to see if there's anything going to upset little eyes. I for one, when I could look past the macabre, was stunned with the inventiveness that went into some scenes and the portraits scattered around the castle.
Plot has come a little way since the last game too. No longer are you single-mindedly searching for a person, only to discover a little plot right at the end. Rather you are investigating certain high-jinks that will slowly unveil to you Felicia's grand plan, and you must learn enough to attempt to foil her. Plenty of relatively easy HOs and some great but easy mini-puzzles. In a speed run I took a little under two hours, almost 30 minutes longer than Joyville.
I reccomend playing it a lot slower than that first time through, though, and really immersing yourself in the artwork. The detail and thought that's gone into this shows.

A Throughly Enjoyable Hidden Object Game
Wonderful! A great game!! It has good graphics, a cool story, dark and mysterious objects and settings. It was challenging without being frustrating. I throughly enjoyed this game.

Another Great puppetshow series to play
I just finished this addition of the puppetshow series, and I gotta say Bravo, well done. There is no map, no journal, and no hint button (except during HO's). So you have to figure things out on your own, which makes it better game play. Graphics and music help set the mood are done well also.
Plz don't 4get 2 put down ur fav game after u write ur review, so others can chk them out as I do. ty
game on gamers...

Souls of the Innocent - You know something bad is afoot...
This, the second of the PuppetShow series, took a big leap forward in graphic and animation quality. Beautiful. The puppets are excellently drawn - far more so than the "real people." The puzzles are a little more difficult than the 1st game, and the HOS are much more difficult. This is mostly because of the color and texture matching. I had to ask for a hint on the last item several times. (That was laziness I admit.) I recommend you get all the PuppetShow games as they are stylistically and thematically connected, and they are very well made.
FYI, here are the titles in order:
2009 - PuppetShow: Mystery of Joyville
2010 - PuppetShow: Souls of the Innocent
2011 - PuppetShow: Lost Town
2012 - PuppetShow: Return to Joyville

Love that Puppet Spider
I really enjoyed playing the Puppet Show Series. There are just enough twists and turns to keep it interesting. Just when you think the HOS is too easy, they slip a couple of challenging objects to find (I've had to resort to a hint now and then). These are great beginner games, but they would not be recommend to younger players because of the "fear factor".

Screencaps don't do it justice!
This is a beautifully crafted game. The Main Menu puppet, turning a hand crank, just blew me away. All the clockwork figures are strange and wonderful, and the sounds fit the scenes without being overwhelming. It installed and ran perfectly on my somewhat vintage PC. I just bought the first installment and can't wait to try it out.
