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.

Please do yourself and the developers a favor and buy this game.
The game is a 2D side-scrolling platformer and it takes place on a stage of a puppet show. You have the option to play it either using the Move Motion or Dual Shock controller. I am playing it using the latter. The first player plays as Kutaro, a puppet who's literally lost his head because the evil Moon Bear ate his head and transformed him into a wooden puppet.
Like Little Big Planet, there's a narrator in Pupeeter. It's isn't long after you begin playing that Kutaro obtains a magical pair of scissors. With this pair of scissors, you can battle bosses and make your way through the different stages. You can glide upwards/downwards/sideways by cutting through fabric, paper, strings etc. The environment is made of arts and crafts.
The boss battles consist of cutting through fabric instead of the traditional way of taking out any boss. In my opinion, this is what sets it apart from other traditional platforming games. (There isn't much of a learning curve while wielding the scissors and I managed to get the hang of it quickly. You get a basic tutorial after procuring the scissors.)

The art direction of this game is marvelously realized. Whoever came up with the concept to place a game in the setting of a puppet show/theater is some kind of crazy genius. Oh, and then this crazy genius decided to give your character the ability to swap out his head... you know, with things like bananas and cherry trees. Yeah, it makes no sense... get used to it. This game does, after all, take place in the setting of a puppet show, so the developers wisely elected to let their imaginations run wild as the story progresses through its wild, Moon Bear King infested chapters. Further capitalizing on this unique setting, the visuals of "Puppeteer" utilize a beautiful paper-craft style, which is intelligently implemented into the actual gameplay (with particular emphasis on your "magic scissors"). The inclusion of an actual audience and curtains is brilliant, framing the experience into something that has never before been attempted in a video game - and it works! This game's art style will make it impervious to aging, and I think it will still look wonderful 20 years from now, just like the recent Rayman titles.
Why is this game "budget priced" at $39? I have no idea.Read more ›
The game is presented as a Bunraku Puppet Theater complete with narrator and audience. You play through the game in acts with a fully voiced segment in between to progress the story. The voice acting in this game is top notch and really makes you want to watch the movies between acts rather than skipping them! The visuals in this game are breathtaking and IMO will make this title remain timeless because of how well they are done. The controls are tight and neither me nor my niece has any complainants or issues playing the game. Since your playing as a puppet you have the ability to change your head, this will allow you different abilities as well as access to hidden areas depending on what head you have equipped. Also in the first chapter you will get a pair of magic scissors you will use to attack enemies as well as move around and change the environments. The Boss fights are some of the best I have ever experienced in a platformer and are a refreshing change to the genre.
After spending only 2 days with this title I can easily say this has very quickly became one of my favorite PS3 titles and one of the greats from this generation. This is a game that anyone who remotely likes 2D platformers must pick up and the best part about it is that its a budget priced game starting at only $40.00!!!!! I have always disliked rating games and giving them scores but this is as close to being perfect as it gets.
