One dark moonlit night, a young boy named Kutaro was carried away by the maleficent Moon Bear King to a black castle where the unlucky lad was transformed into a puppet. Kutaro displeased the terrible tyrant, who devoured the boy's wooden head and cast away his body. But the headless hero was not alone, for he had discovered a very special pair of scissors to help him on his harrowing adventure to find his head, and his way home.

Aesthetically, Puppeteer has a lively style that changes with its surroundings incredibly well. Dark, underground zones are designed with claustrophobic care, open landscapes have beautifully rendered maps, and the whole game has a feeling that you're playing with toys as a kid again. This couples well with the fact that the narrative is enriched with adult themes which are interlaced so well beneath the surface of the script that younger kids won't even notice; really, this is a genuine family game, and you can play it with another person.

Every single detail is masterfully crafted, and the absolutely solid platforming gameplay very rarely gets its strings tangled. Kutaro's marvellous journey is packed with characters that are anything but wooden, and a narrative that's both self-aware and effortlessly charming, resulting in one of the best exclusive adventures on the PlayStation 3.

Puppeteer is old-school fun. A bold and inventive platformer that deserves your time and attention. Buy it.
