Puppeteer Review - Gametactics

Puppeteer is a kind of a game that came out of nowhere; it has not received much marketing. A very simple but cute and enjoyable platformer, that’s kind of a shame. Especially since the game could have been a much richer experience. But maybe that’s the bigger shortcoming.

The game is about a young boy named Kutaro whose head was removed by the Moon Bear King after he revolted against the Moon Goddess and took over the moon and destroying the Moon Stone. The Moon Stone was broken into several shards, and after Kutaro gains a temporary head and the ‘Calibrus’, he sets out to recover the moonstone shards and overthrow the Bear Tyrant. The Calibrus is a magic pair of scissors that are used for the bulk of the gameplay. They can of course be used to attack enemies or to cut through objects to traverse the terrain. They also add a slight bit of height and reach to a jump. Later on, Kutaro will gain other abilities like throwing bombs or slamming powers. The Calibrus is also powered up to allow even more advanced level traversing abilities. These abilities are needed to find secret areas as well, but you will have to return back to these levels to access them as they are locked out initially. In addition, Kutaro also has many temporary heads to equip. He can have up to three heads at a time, and they are also a health bar of shorts. They allow Kutaro to take three hits before dying, but they can be recovered if you can retrieve them before they disappear. Other actions that Kutaro can perform are a reflective shield and rolling. (PS3, Puppeteer) 8/10
