    YOU’LL NEED TO PULL SOME STRINGS!
    Battle of Puppets is an addictive, fascinatingly odd, and truly original linear strategy game. With a vibrant artistic style, it combines, the hallowed art of puppetry, with ruthless marionette combat!

    You select and perform an opera in a series of 22 American theatres, each with its own custom backdrop of famous landmarks. Each competition then pits you as the puppeteer to strategically build units, upgrade your castle and outposts, and even cast spells using written gestures to destroy the opposing forces and win the affection of the crowd. With 6 professions to unlock, you can learn to repair your troops, mind control the enemy, boo the opposition, and more!

    Each of the 5 operas vary significantly in terms of their relative strengths and weaknesses, unit types, building speeds, and most interestingly, how they are affected by changing weather conditions. Choose the best route across the country based on the weather in each city!

    Battle of Puppets is easy to learn but the strategy is hard to master!

    There are a bunch of castle vs castle strategy games on the App Store, but few can come close to rivaling the look and feel of Battle of Puppets.

    Visually appealing and with an operatic setting like no other, Battle of Puppets's strategic play is highly addictive, if also repetitive.

    Battle of Puppets is light on strategy, but has style to spare.

    And while Battle of Puppets has some positives, it's mostly draped in shallow gameplay.
