Fairy Tale Mysteries: The Puppet Thief Collector’s Edition Game Review

Game Information

Fairy Tale Mysteries: The Puppet Thief [CE*], is a HOPA* game, developed by The House of Fables; Gogii Games and published by Artifex Mundi.

This is the first installment of the series. The next installment of the series is ‘The Beanstalk.’

*CE – Collector’s Edition
*HOPA – Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure.

Since this is an collector’s edition game, it comes with some extra features, that aren’t available in the regular edition game.

Game Visuals

I want to mentioned that the visuals for this game is nicely done. The visuals can be adjusted in the option menu.

Game Audio

I want to mentioned that the audio for this game is well done even its simplistic and somewhat repetitive. The audio can be adjusted in the option menu as well.


There are only three difficulty game modes to choose from: Casual, Hard and Expert.

Diary Notebook it keeps track off all game’s objectives and notes.

The interactive map allows the player to fast travel between each location quickly. It also indicates there are tasks that needs to be done at certain locations. But it isn’t immediately given at the start of the game.

All of the hidden object scenes consists of traditional word list with little or no interaction.

Most of the game’s puzzles are fairly easy to solve without having the need to skip any of them.

There are seventeen different achievements that can be unlocked from playing the game. Each of these achievements do has some requirement before they can be unlocked.

There’s a bonus chapter, but it can be access, only after the main portion of the game is fully completed. This bonus chapter is the direct sequel to the main story.


There are total of five different trading cards. You only get the three of those cards from the game. There are several ways to get the rest of the trading card: Purchased from Steam’s Market; Trade with friends; Booster Packs and it’s Booster Pack Creator.

Final thoughts, I’ve found this game enjoyable to certain extend. The replay value for this game is low. I would recommend this game but not at the full price.
