Puppeteer tells the story of a little boy who’s head was eaten by a giant Moon Bear King. Although it sounds brutal, this is definitely a game anyone can enjoy. The game is told through a puppet show, with you controlling a marionette puppet Kutaro. Its clever gameplay mechanics, combined with outstanding visual and audio presentation make for a game that it is as fun to watch as it is to play. While people of all ages will be able to enjoy Puppeteer, it does suffer from some slight issues; namely long cut scenes and a lack of overall difficulty for the most part. However, these issues are minor in the grand scheme of things.
