🌌🃏👤❤️Puppet Thief Steals My Heart❤️👤🃏🌌

Greetings, Gamers 👄:
Having been on a puppet binge lately (playing the PuppetShow series) I'm delighted to see this week's offering of a Brothers Grimm fairy tale.
The blue-gray colors are lovely and fitting to the story's grim (sorry, couldn't resist! 😋) sense of foreboding evil. The game's opening scene of the puppet master in shadow , coupled with the creepy, sing-song theme music - sends shivers of delight down one's spine!
Nice seeing an integrated SG; this one, however, doesn't go into near the detail as others have.
I'm early in the game, having completed a couple of puzzles and several HOS scenes, which are nicely done.
The story is excellent, the voices are outstanding and the artwork is lovely.
For now I'm awarding 4 🌟🌟🌟🌟 (deducting a star for that bare bones SG) but will return if drastic measures call. Yeah, I'm a bit bummed that there's not lots to see and do but I'm focusing on positives here. ✔️👍✅➕😄
Many thanks to the game developers, creative forces and BFG for this game. It's much appreciated! 💋😘💋😘💋😘💋😘💋😘
💫💫💫Shoutout to Hossryder1: thank you muchly for your kind words. Hope you're enjoying your horseback rides in the sunshine. 🌞🐎

more annoying that fun

Very nice visuals and well done scenery. It’s a solid game but there are several things that detract from its playability.
1. Hidden object scenes cannot be zoomed. All other Big Fish HOS games I’ve played have some degree of zoom in the HO scenes. There are some very tiny objects, often partially hidden, we’re expected to find. And there are lots of HO sequences in this game.
2. Of the few puzzles I’ve encountered so far, most are ridiculously easy. I’ve just done two in a row where all you have to to is rotate a tile or ring in place. All objects rotate independently and the game tells you when each piece is in the correct orientation. It’s not a puzzle if there isn’t anything to figure out.
3. The cut scenes with dialog are painfully slow. Often, these games will let you move the dialog forward by tapping the speaker’s text. In this game it’s all or nothing in terms of experiencing the full cut scene.


Even if BF🐠 wasn't helpful in your time of need, I want you to know you & your father are in my thoughts. That disease needs a cure already! I can only imagine how you must be feeling😢 I send you an abundance of ✨healing light✨
💚Love💚and as much 🎉joy🎉as you can stand..........😘
As far as this game goes, I could take it or leave it. I was thankful to have a new game but know it could've been soooo much better. I did enjoy the voices & if you like to read (as I do), the "journal"(SG) is quite interesting.
The 💌MagicGrams💌 were fun(& iridescent!) but the price needed to be adjusted accordingly- maybe $2.99? Anyway, if you're really desperate for a game this might hold you over until the "puppet masters"deem us worthy of a quality game. That being said, I continue to wish all my fellow reviewers/gamers much L💚VE & L🍀CK!!

🌟Hossryder: Glad to know you are an animal lover! 🐎Horses are beautiful & majestic animals🐎
Love getting tidbits of peoples lives in their reviews-so THANK YOU for doing just that✌️😎💋
🌟Nambr58: Thank you for letting me know that there are character voices in this game!😊 It's nice to know you are amongst a kind group of reviewers/gamers that look out not only for myself, but others too! I truly appreciate you😘
