PuppetShow: Souls of the Innocent
Let me Down
I looked at the follwing aspects while reviewing this game:
Storyline: Good. Odd, but good. Made me want to keep playing to see what had happened 7/10 (B)
Graphics: Great, creepy graphics. Very well drawn and designed. 9/10 (A)
Hidden Object Scenes: Not good. The items were small and hard to find. 5/10: (D)
Hint and Skip buttons: Annoying. At 60 seconds, this was way too long for the hint button to recharge. 1/10 (F)
Overall Score: 22/40
Overall Grade: D

Too many hidden object scenes
I guess I've progressed beyond having so many hidden object scenes and more adventure type games. Seems like there was only 1 or two actions to do in each scene and then it was HO after HO. No hint outside HOs and no journal or map.
I was WONDERING why I didn't have this Puppet Show when the ERS games were on sale so I got this one. Since it wasn't my cup of tea I won't recommend this one but the others I loved.

Disappointed not what I expected after the first one.
I have played Lost Town & Joyville and love both of them! I was hesitant to buy this game so I tried the 60 minute trial. I quit at 50 minutes! They have crammed too much into the scenes, you cannot even see some of the HO's they are so small. By the end of my 50 minute trial I was soooo glad....I did not buy this game! Unnecessarily tedious and hard on the eyes! More is not always better, this is so true in this case!

Not for Casual Play
If you just want to unwind and play a game, this is not the one. Very confusing, depressing graphics. Sorry I bought it.

GOOD AS A SLEEP AID FOR INSOMNIA
It started well, with nice graphics, lots of colors and what promised to be an entertaining story, but...............then everything went silent. There are no voice overs, only cartoon-like characters with dialogue boxes. Okaayy, I can live with that if the game's other qualities are excellent. They're not. There is NO interactive map, a major annoyance to me as I hate running to and fro like a squirrel which forgot where it buried it's nuts. The music at first was nice, but soon turned into alternations between silence, wind blowing, creepy laughing, tinkling and a lullaby melody guaranteed to make your eyes get heavy. I literally began to nod off. I wanted to get involved in this game so as not to waste my money, but I couldn't even force myself to keep going. It was THAT boring. B.O.R.I.N.G. Waste of my money ......
