Fairy Tale Mysteries: The Puppet Thief reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
Quite a mediocre quest to find items from the publisher Artifex Mundi. Especially the plot suffers. The Main antagonist has incredible magical abilities, but with the same incredible stupidity. About Russian localization here already wrote. When searching for items the boiler can easily be a kettle, etc. Drawing in general normal, but that's exactly the scenes of the search for items are some faded, inexpressive. Because of this and lousy Russian localization sometimes begins quite dull pixel-hunting. If you like to search for items, it is better to take another game from the Artifex Mundi, or from any other publisher, the benefit in the last 2-3 years of lack of such games is not felt. 4/10

How can German Poetry be packaged So badly? And why give a Doll with a Doll's Mouth human Facial Features? Are these really Threads or rather Tentacles? THAT finds YOU ONLY in THIS SPIEL!!!!! An almost loveless Painted Play with a not serious Story, a bad Character setting and the Music also leaves you to Desires, as it always repeats itself. Mini-games, some of which seem as if they have not been developed to the End. The Same applies to the Hidden Obmands, which consist of loudly put together small Pictures, without having been properly incorporated into the Game. There is a Bonus Chapter with no proper Reference to the Main Story. All in the Only thing, unfortunately, this Game IS NOT recommended for OUT. What a pity.

First of All, I played through this Game offline. So The Time displayed is not correct. Together With the Extra Chapter, it took me almost 2.5 Hours. Although this Game only appeared last Year, it feels like one from the primal days of the Hidden Object images. Many of the items you are looking for can only be found in well pictures of the hidden Mould;-). These are quite often available, but they are repeated just as often. So to get further you have to visit many Places several times to see if a new Hidden Object Has opened up. This is not where the Map particularly helps. This only roughly indicates the Environment, which is made up of different Locations. The other Mini-games are mostly of the Kind Memory or Sliding Puzzles. The Story behind the Game is quite nice but nothing special. So what's the Reason I can't recommend it? The Hidden Obmills! These are completely decorated in very earth-colored Tones. Which fits perfectly at the Time of the Game. But unfortunately, the Resolution is no longer up-to-date. If then nasty Tricks come to it really mies. By nasty Tricks I mean that the Objects are sometimes so small and hidden in the Background that you can't recognize them even with a Magnifying glass ... Especially if they look anything but the item you're looking for. In addition, you can change the Color a little. Is funny when you then look for brown cubes in the brown Background (I could find them quickly, but other Objects were small and changed that they remained absolutely invisible and even with Auxiliary function I only clicked in blindly without Recognizing them).
