I'm surprised that there's just one review about this game so far. I really like this game. The gameplay is very unique. There are many acts in this game. Each scene has its own theme (pirates vs mermaids, mutants vs crazy animals, ghosts vs skeletons, etc). I mean I had really good laugh while playing this game. The narrator is funny also. There's not much story in story mode though, but I don't really mind.

Excellent premise.
Really cool puppeteers who react if you hit them with a sword.
Weird and wonderful.
Maybe a tad expensive at 18.99 NZD.

It's a humorous concept that is silly fun though it gets a little old rather quickly. It's betterif you have someone else to play with.
