PuppetShow: Her Cruel Collection 3.7 5 7 7
HELP MARJORY SAVE HER BELOVED JAMES Puppet Show Her Cruel Collection is number ten in the series, unless I missed one somewhere along the line. Fortunately, Her Cruel Collection is far better than the last game and one that I find very interesting and enjoyable. I tend to be a bit squeamish so I am not sure about the game being blood-spattered since I haven?t noticed it or found it objectionable. I'm surprised at the negative rating on the CE BUT there really was not much that would justify the higher price aside from the inclusion of the Strategy Guide. Even then the guides are not as good now as they once were and rather useless if they don't give solutions. I found the storyline interesting and did happen to enjoy playing the game. Not everyone has the same taste in games but this one had what I like. We, of course, get to play the game as a detective who has been hired by Marjory to rescue her beloved James from kidnappers who are holding him for ransom. Marjory comes from a wealthy family but dad seems to be a bit of a miser as he refuses to loan Marjory the money for the ransom and, in fact, he places her on the dreaded restriction to keep her from following the kidnappers. Well, we know how long that will last as it isn?t long before Marjory is out searching for James and ending up in a load of trouble. Even though I have always found the Puppet Show games a bit creepy I still love the graphics created by this developer. The hand-drawn graphics, even though a bit dark, create the perfect setting for the game. IMHO, no other developer creates characters as animated and realistic looking as this artistic team. The voice overs are good but Marjory?s high-pitched tone did get to me a bit. Our tools include an interactive map and a pet helper of sorts. Since Marjory is allergic to cats her daddy gifted her with a grotesque mechanical cat. Well since this team seems wedded to a pet helper, I think I would have preferred furry rather than the monstrosity that we have doing rather silly tasks. The cat is probably my least favorite part of the game and, fortunately, he isn?t used that often. The HOPS are far more varied and creative, which is something new for this team. There are still a few list type scenes and even those seem to have some interactive items to find. The puzzles are good and include a range of challenge that is sure to please most gamers. Some were easy but there was one early in the game that is the type of puzzle I have never been able to complete in other games and, after fiddling with it for a few minutes, I hit the skip button. The thing about puzzles is that not every gamer is enthusiastic about them or really wants them to be extremely difficult. Some people have an aptitude for solving very challenging puzzles and seem to thrive on them but that isn?t the case for everyone. I love to solve puzzles but I often run into some that are very difficult for me and I don?t always have the patience to fiddle with them too long since I want to move ahead with the story. Overall, Her Cruel Intention is an excellent game and one of the better ones in the newer Puppet Show games. Yes, it is nothing like the first three or four games that were phenomenal but it is a vast improvement on the last one. The storyline is what captured my interest from the beginning of the game and has held my attention as I have played for the past few hours. I love the entire package of characters, graphics, and sound effects that make Her Cruel Collection a game that I believe many gamers will enjoy. As always, please try the demo to see if this newest Puppet Show is a game you will enjoy October 14, 2016
PuppetShow 9! Help save Marjory and James in this latest thriller... The PuppetShow series must go on! The series has just gotten a new addition and I loved it! Her Cruel Collection is a hidden object game in which your goal is to investigate a series of kidnappings and catch the ones responsible before others are taken as well. A girl and a boy are in love. She is rich and her father does not approve, he is not so rich, but very ill. Things go all the way south when he disappears and then she disappears. The story puts you in the role of a detective who?s investigating these kidnappings. You get to choose whether to be a male or a female investigator, which makes the experience slightly customizable. Naturally, there?s a big emphasis on puppets and creepy dolls throughout the story, given the fact that you stumble onto them in a variety of weird places. You are called in for an investigation, but things are not so simple because you are surrounded by puppets and not real people who pretend to be what they are not. You get a mechanical helper for this adventure, a cat. There is also a bonus game to add more love tension and info about James' illness to the story. I also love how much detail and sound/SFX ERS put into creating the adventure. The game also comes with a "graphic content" disclaimer which I think is brilliant. Like telling you before a movie "For Mature Audiences Only". You gotta give developers credit for putting a lot of thought into this latest edition especially if you are a long-time fan of this unique series. If you want a unique and "think outside the box" mystery then this game is for you. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Purchase CE if you want to know how the story really ends with the included bonus game. October 14, 2016
Always great. Love these games from the introduction and the graphics, such as if you click the eyes of the masked guy his eyes turn red, to all the little things they do, graphics are great. October 19, 2016
Fun Game Following is the review I submitted when the CE came out based on the demo played in custom mode. I had 23 minutes left on the clock at the end of the demo so that may indicate a shorter game. I found myself really admiring the artwork as I played. Crisp, clean lines, nice color and creative scenery all through the demo. Nothing too dark or small to see. The sound was good as well. At one point I had to lower the music because **spoiler alert** we're racing the clock to achieve a goal and the intensity of the music was causing me a lot of angst. Once I lowered it I was able to proceed without all the adrenaline flowing making me crazy :-) There wasn't as much challenge as I would have expected. There weren't as many HOG's or mini games and the mini's there were were fairly simple except for one type that I particularly dislike so I skipped that one. I didn't see any alternate game that could be played in place of an HOG. There were a lot of cut scenes, almost like watching a movie interspersed here and there with a mini game or HOG. Since I only played the demo and not the full game I don't know if it continues with lots of cut scenes for the entire game. Hopefully another reviewer will play the whole game and fill us in on that. Some other points to be noted are: we can play as male or female as we choose; there are some collectibles, not many and no morphing items. There are the usual achievements, wallpapers, screen savers and music and 4 modes to play in. There is probably a bonus chapter too but I forgot to look to see if one is there. Because of the limited number of collectible-type items and the fact that there are so many cut scenes and too few HOG's and mini games I would wait til the SE comes out and purchase then. There just isn't enough here to justify a CE price IMO. I sure was enjoying what play there is though so I definitely recommend you try the demo. October 14, 2016
PUPPETSHOW OF OLD IS THE SAME TODAY I loved the original puppetshow series and for that reason I recommend this game to new folks of hidden object obsession. If you haven't seen the others, be sure to check them out. It is unique and a little creepy, which makes it fun. The visuals are very detailed and the music compliments the storyline. The storyline is lacking for me, because the demo doesn't leave me with that sense of urgency to make me want to see how it ends. There was not enough information given to give that wow factor for me. A young woman calls you, the detective, to her home to find her true love who was kidnapped by some guys in pointy masks. The reason they say is to get a ransom paid by the girl's father, who refuses to pay, of course. It is unknown how humans are transformed into these puppets and seems too complicated to find out. However, it is a fun game and a great series to those who have never experienced it before. Thanks, Mia. October 14, 2016
Yes, This Game is Cruel This is posted after playing the demo. While this series is my least favorite, this game just added to that feeling. It was confusing, irritating, and just not fun at all. I've never seen the sense of this series. Graphics were good as was the sound and voice overs. The music went along with the action. The only difficulty I experienced was the delay between scenes and action. It took quite a while for something to happen. I found the hidden object scenes to be just as silly as the rest of the game. Looking for things that I had no idea what they were to begin with. I did find out what a pounder is and it's not a hammer. I did play the mini games which means they are extremely simple or I'm getting smarter in my old age. I will go with the former. There is an interactive map which, to me, was to transport only. It does not show where there are things you can do, just that there is an objective there. I used the hint button numerous times just to figure out where to go and what to do in a scene. The story was okay. You're a detective, of course, and the one saving grace of the game is you get to pick if you are a man or woman. That to me is a plus. I do get tired of digging my heels out of the closet to play a lady all the time. Big Fish does a great job setting the stage for the story so I won't go into it at length. While I own several games of this series, this will not be one of them. I need something that makes a little sense to purchase it. October 23, 2016
It's Cruel To Have To Play This Game Twice PuppetShow games lost their appeal a long time ago because nothing changes, the graphics are the same steampunk type, the characters all look the same, and the storylines are getting more bizarre with each new release. Her Cruel Collection has nothing to offer, new or old, it has the same mundane tasks (bet you knew there would be a ladder in the next scene, bet you knew before the cursor changed, to look in the front of the car AND the trunk or to look on the windowsill, right?), and it has the exact same graphics as the Dark Tales series. I kept expecting Detective Dupin to show up and present me with the evidence he found! (btw, Dark Tales has lost it's appeal to most gamers as well!) You get to choose a gender and then choose between three different profile pictures within that gender. I wasn't impressed by this feature either,. I chose the female gender and was given the option to choose a blonde woman with braids, a teenager holding a fuzzy kitten or a young brunette who doesn't look like she ever held a job and would be devastated if she were to break a nail, humf, decisions, decisions, which should I choose. (it's not like the game will change according to my choice. I would rather have had the opportunity to choose my Mechanical Cat helper, maybe I wanted a cat with blue eyes and all chromed out! The Collector's Edition version isn't very CE worthy either. There are 9 Collectible Puppets, but you can't miss them, they aren't hidden, in fact, they are within Zoom Zones and the window doesn't close until you click to collect your prize. Other than Achievements, that's about all that you get. You can also check out the Collectibles and earned Achievements fairly easily because there are large pull down tabs available at the top of the screen. If you must have this game, I suggest this Standard Edition for the value benefit. Once the kidnappers give you a deadline to raise their ransom request, a giant Clock is added to the screen as well. I hope there are no more demands because pretty soon my screen won't have any room left, especially if they demand a helicopter! The Hidden Object Scenes should please just about everyone because each scene has a different type. There are the standard Interactive list finds, Silhouetted Shape finds, Keywords and even replacing items back into the scene where they logically fit. The Mini Games are decent, but nothing really challenging. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Swap the pins to place them in the correct positions according to their symbols. 2) Fill the field with green chips in order to beat your opponent. Select green chips and the desired space, moving the chips one space duplicates it, moving chips more than one space will just move the chip. The chips turn adjacent chips to the same color. 3) Select two tiles to swap them and restore the stamp, some tiles are stationary. 4) Select the print button and choose matching pairs of money to gather them inside the bag or move them to the side, making sure torn and dirty banknotes don't get placed into the bag. The Collector's Edition has 9 Collectible Puppet Figures, 9 replayable Hidden Object Scenes, 17 replayable Mini Games, 4 Music Soundtracks, 15 Videos, 5 Screensavers, 10 Wallpapers, 8 Concept Art pictures, 12 Achievements, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter. I did actually purchase the CE on a 241 sale, and not much changed after the demo, and to be honest with you, I haven't finished the game and it doesn't bother me that I haven't. This tells me that the game isn't even entertaining enough to want to play it much less finish it. October 14, 2016
