One dark moonlit night, a young boy named Kutaro was carried away by the maleficent Moon Bear King to a black castle where the unlucky lad was transformed into a puppet.
Kutaro displeased the terrible tyrant, who devoured the boy's wooden head and cast away his body. But the headless hero was not alone, for he had discovered a very special pair of scissors to help him on his harrowing adventure to find his head, and his way home.

The trouble is that the market is so saturated with 1st person shooters and now the standard open world game types that real games with character and originality are becoming relics when in fact we need more of them, I'm not saying that those games aren't great to play we just have so many of them that the single player campaign are just so similar year after year and now the focus seems too be on online play only? gone or should I say going are the times when games used too be games instead of training camps lol :-)
I'm a seasoned gamer with plenty of experience playing video games. With this in mind it is so refreshing to see something so original, creative and imaginative. FPS games have dominated the market in recent times, but Puppeteer makes a real statement for platformers.
Unlike many platformers, Puppeteer is story driven. You play as Kutaro; a boy whose soul has been stolen and turned into a puppet by the Moon Bear King - who then proceeds to eat Kutaro's head.
Throughout your journey you are assigned with the task of gathering different heads (anything from a skull to a banana) and finding out their different properties. Early on you encounter a pair of legendary scissors, which can be used to travel around the scene and defeat enemies. This provides some of that unique and interesting gameplay that makes Puppeteer a cut above the rest.
As the title suggests, the whole game is a puppet show. You can hear the crowd laughing or gasping. Add the constant surrounding of theatre curtains and you have something that really makes you feel like you're playing a show.
This game undoubtedly deserves more recognition and I really hope there is a sequel already planned.
This is the best and most original platformer since the Heart of Darkness on PSX.
Dialogues and music are better then in the movies.
Puzzles and platforming mechanics are fresh and full of mysteries.
Idea of controlling the spotlight (character) and looking for the secrets in the background is more then genius.
Graphically it is top notch. Atmosphere reminds of Tim Burton works.
Oh yes, and it is very long! More then 12 hours in your first walkthrough.
I really hope Puppeteer will not get lost between Rayman Legends and GTAV...
Sony should have released this game on a different date.
But my fingers are crossed that this genius title will sell well and bring more adventures of Kutaro in the future.
5/5 Platformer of the year
