The game ends with To Be Continued. For the price I paid for this app it had better be continued via a free app update!! If it isn't I will NEVER buy another big fish game and will be asking all of my friends to do the same. Most of my friends buy apps thanks to my recommendation anyway so I won't be recommending this to anyone unless it's updated with more content ASAP.

This game took me all of two hours to figure out and finish. It was a really neat game and I liked it but it just ended all too soon. I should have bought stray souls instead because at least people say its longer. This was just as disappointing as Drawn with the length but at least Drawn has AMAZING graphics! If you're going to spend your money on an app like this just go with Drawn or Drawn II although I don't think Drawn II is as good as the first one either and I didn't buy the full version of the second version of the game.

Best of luck to anyone that pays for this game and doesn't even get an hour of play for each dollar they spend. I didn't even get an hour of play for every $2.00 I spent! That's kind of a rip off if you ask me

Almost too simple (except for a few mini puzzles lacking any direction!)

I've purchased and played more than 40 hidden object games; almost all Big Fish and G5. PuppetShow is among the bottom half of my favorites. It was an interesting story and theme, but for $4.99 I expected it to be much, much longer. The graphics were really engaging and the hidden object scenes were pretty good. Some of the mini puzzles had directions, others didn't. Some just didn't make sense. I hate skipping puzzles, but two of them literally made no sense and despite messing around with them each for about half an hour, I finally skipped out of frustration. I think each scene should have had much more embedded into it instead of having only one or two interactive components. Again, disappointing given the price. Except for the mini puzzles that lacked directions, this is an ideal game for someone new to hidden object games considering how simple and short it was.

Bait and switch

This game fell way short of my expectations of Big Fish Games! The pre-game really draws you in with it's beautiful graphics and beginning plot, so you have no problem paying the $6.99 for the full version. However, once loaded the full version is barely longer than the pre game if not the same length! The plot falls apart, the story which had real interesting potential, became boring and lack luster. The mini games were very easy, in fact easily figured out by my 8 yr old daughter, even she was bored. My daughter commented that the game seemed like it was going to be really interesting before we loaded the full version, but that in fact it was very short and easy. The ending was the dreaded" to be continued..... At that point we both thought that perhaps there would be bonus material but there wasn't. Bottom line, don't waste your money on this one friends, there are many other games out there that are far more deserving of your cash.
