About This Game

When White House inquiries to the Scoggins Eraser Co. are answered only with curious puzzles, Nelson Tethers from the U.S. Department of Puzzle Research is sent on the case.

The strange events in Scoggins will challenge every ounce of Tethers’ expertise, and possibly his very wits too, with brainteasers at every turn: mazes, logic puzzles, riddles, and more. He soon realizes that these - along with the clinically pre-occupied townspeople, secret societies, and peculiar sounds from the forest - are intimately connected to the core mystery. And what's with the gnomes?

Created with indie comic artist Graham Annable's unique narrative and visual sensibilities, delivered with the distinctive Telltale storytelling style, Puzzle Agent is sure to challenge, thrill and engage in more ways than you can shake a cryptogram at!

  • Plentiful puzzles to challenge your neurons. See if you can find every puzzle to solve the mystery of Scoggins -- mazes, logic, riddles, brainteasers and more.
  • Investigate the strange, peculiar and mind-boggling to crack the case! Your discoveries provide clues to the larger mystery crippling the town, or uncover puzzles that must be solved to reveal answers ... or even more questions.
  • Hunting for Hints: Chewing gum helps Agent Tethers think and solve. Find and collect gum wads around the town to uncover hints if you get "stuck" in any puzzles.

Basically Professor Layton in gameplay and execution. However, it is much more simple and the puzzles aren't nearly as tricky. It's got pretty good voice acting. The art style and animation messed with my eyes sometimes though. It's fairly short and can be beaten in only a couple of hours. The Voice acting was pretty good and this game was surprisingly spooky for a couple of moments.

Freaking gnomes.

Love the art style and the voice acting. The storyline was actually rather creepy as well - though I wish it had a more concrete ending. The puzzles ranged from easy as pie to medium difficulty. However there are a few puzzles whose explaination is so poorly presented that you feel like your head will explode trying to understand what is going on.

Overall though, I enjoyed it quite a bit. Beat it in 4 hours but missed a few side quests. No biggie really. I'd recommend this one easily.

Really enjoyed the game, but the inconsistent difficulty of the puzzles was a bit frustrating. Could tell there were no fewer than 3 people making the puzzles, turns out there were 6. Everything worked wonderfully, but the consistency was a bit lacking.
Great atmosphere created through the music, and the art style and bare-bones voice work really worked well together. All together I am happy to have bought it. Replay value only really exists to improve on puzzle scores, which is a bit lacking. Game took about 2 hours to play through.

Unplayable for months on Mac. Lots of puzzles have missing elements because they don't show up on the Mac edition. Don't buy if playing on Mac.

Great little game that keeps your brainscells from dying of boredom. Story ends cliffhanger-ish, pointing to the sequel with both hands. I guess one has to like the style and overall mood of the game, but I have to say that I had loads of fun and am looking forward to playing Puzzle Agent 2 once I find the time.

Professor Layton-type puzzling game with a dark, sinister edge belied by the game's cute visuals. As a puzzle game, it's solid. As a story out of equal parts Twin Peaks, Fargo, and X-Files, it's surprisingly gripping.

At first this is a decent variant on Professor Layton, but after the stovepipe puzzle, I was interested enough to finish it. The game is humourous, but not laugh out loud. It has controller support, but you're moving around a mouse cursor and there's no snapping to interface elements.

The anti-pixelhunting radar ping is nice and there are tons of hint tokens (gum) if you get stuck. I didn't get stuck on many puzzles.

Overall, it's a pretty good game that has a unique twist on the puzzle adventure. The puzzles are integrated into the story (not too abstract), but some are more labour than challenge (arrange the pieces to fit a zig zag).

I like puzzle games and this one was fairly good. The story line that tied the puzzles together was stupid in the right way. It actually added to the game.

Great art, memorable characters and an interesting story. Too bad the puzzles range from boring to irritating.

A very silly casual game.

Quite child like but it's actually a lot of fun with a suprisingly good storyline. I'll probably be getting the second one & for £3.99 it's a pretty cheap way to while away an afternoon.
My only issue is that the puzzles seem to be exactly the same when you replay it so you will already know all the solutions...not really a huge issue though as this is the case with all point & click games. I just kind of assumed that as the puzzles are all things like jigsaws & riddles & things there would be some randomisation.

Still fun, I definiatley recommend it.

I was waiting for my bus to Buckingham Palace to pick up my rife and William Beveridge playing cards when my mobile recieved a message. I thought it was Rab Butler sending me snapchat messages about his illiterate wife. However, the message was from a myseterious source, claiming that there was a problem with some NHS legislation. I haven't been prime minister for a long time so I though nothing of it. That was until I saw the contact number the message was sent from: 80085. I smirked at first, thinking it was a prank message, but then I remembered; The corordinates of my treasure were oddly similar to the text message. I threw on my bowler hat and picked up my cane, ignoring the bus that had just arrived. I ran as quickly as I could to Hyde Park, without the aid of public transport to aid in my camoflage and reached the last known location of my stash. I took my remote detonator out of my pocket and blew open the ground beneath me. My fears were confirmed when I noticed that the chest that normally housed my gold bars was absent and a note was left in its place: "I have the gold now Clem. If you ever want to see it again meet me at the Old Docks at midnight tonight." The note was unmarked and had the vague scent of lacquer oil. Now I don't know if you're familiar with your wood preservation techniques but this type of lacquer was used to protect sporting instruments from damage. It was at that point that I realised who was responsible for this heinous crime. I quickly went home and assembled the cabinet. I told them my predicament and they said that they would be willing to help, if I got a new dishwasher for the house. So after much screaming and Bevan nose-breakings, I agreed to buy 4 and a half cases of Carlsberg Export for the house to share. I actually got a great deal on 'em because they were 1 for 1.5 at Morrison's. A plan was set up; They would wait by the dock with a collection of blunt instruments and I would approach the area at the specified time. As the time drew near we all got into postition and I waited near the solitary lampost. A cloaked figure rose from the shadows and addressed me with chilling clarity. I identified myself and told him about the missing bars. I also asked how I was contacted on a private number. Just as he was about to explain himself, I gave the signal and everyone jumped out at once. Except for Roy Jenkins but then that's what I get for putting non-cabinet members in my plans. They beat him to within an inch of his life. He sat there motionless, his shoulders heaving under the stress of his laboured breathing. "Why?" he asked, as if I was under trial. "You stole my gold; You tell me." I replied. He said that he didn't steal the gold, but that it was stolen by my arch-nemesis. Embarrassingly, I was unsure of who this was. I asked him and he said one simple word: "Wood." I knew what that mean. It was all clear now. I knew what had to be done. The lacquer oil, the wooden dock, the missing wooden chest. Something was oddly connected about all of these things, and I knew what. For some time now, the current cabinet has been leaving me distracting emails about how everntually I will fall, but I haven't read them for two reasons: For one, I don't negotiate with terror♥♥♥♥♥ and two, I have a monopoly on the timber industry, so they've been using wood-based threats for years to "Send me a message." Up to this point I ignored them, but now I knew what had to be done. I had to investigate this further and figure out who had it in for me for so long. I would not rest until the identity of my greatest foe was revealed.


...


Oh ♥♥♥♥ yeah, Puzzle Agent. Good puzzles, decent writing - 12/1

Interesting game. Some of the puzzles actually gave me a headache, and I had to sit down and scribble on a bunch of post-it notes. The story is actually really compelling, compelling enough for me to want to buy the second game.
Sadly, this game is very short, since most puzzles were quite easy to solve (some are actually jigsaw puzzles, come on...). Also, I cannot say I recommend this game to anyone looking for a classic-style point-and-click adventure like Monkey Island, Edna & Harvey, and such. This really is more like a stripped down point-and-click game, where all focus is on separate puzzles. This means no items and inventory, and no multi-room puzzles (the most challenging and best puzzles, IMO).

This game could be better if the developers would have made the puzzles harder. Perhaps even adding a couple of puzzles. But I suppose that for the itty bitty price tag, it was totally worth it.

Long story short: Good game, great story, could be better though if it was longer and harder (that's what she said).

Not a bad pilot series from Telltale games.
It definately has a Sam & Max feel to it concerning the music. Essentially it's an advanced puzzle game with point & click elements, it isn't as bad as it sounds or looks because the game offers hints and there are guides on Steam for it.

It's worth your time.

While the charatars were fun and the story clever the puzzles(the actual game element of the game) were borderline insulting. Most of the "puzzles" early on were nothing more than an elaborate game of connect the dots. If you are a fan of games like Professor Layton STAY AWAY form Puzzle Agent, you will not have a good time.

Before starting this review, I would like to mention that this game is short, even for point-and-click standards. It's about two and a half hours long if you don't get stuck, and as such, I would really only suggest it on sale. I picked it up from Green Man Gaming for about $1 with my credit, and I can calmly say I was happily surprised.

Puzzle Agent is a rather unconventional point-and-click game, with a highly intriguing story, wonderful atmosphere, and great art style. I say unconventional as instead of the normal collecting objects for puzzles, you're flat out given varied puzzles, that are different every time. Are you doing a traditional puzzle? Solving a mystery? Ordering logs so you reach your destination? The variety is very nice, and keeps things fresh.

The story is incredibly well written, and full of twists and turns along the way. I won't really spoil much about it, however, this game does end on a cliffhanger that honestly turns this game into a vastly extended demo for its sequel, which is much more fleshed out, and has about double the playtime. With that being said, though, I didn't hate the ending, but it was just there. The buildup to it is great, but there are loose ends everywhere.

With as many bad things as I can say about the ending, though, the atmosphere of the game is amazing. The seemingly-normal town of Scoggins is full of intriguing characters, and it just feels right. The way people speak, the way things look, the unsettling feeling of being alone in an empty world, it's absolutely amazing, and I really wish there were more than two games in this franchise, so I could explore Scoggins more.

Graphically, the game looks great. Graham Annable's art style gives the game a really unique feel, and just adds on to the atmosphere even more. There's not really much else that I can say about it, it's shown off in the screenshots incredibly well, and looks very nice.

All in all, I would highly suggest this game on sale. If it were a longer game, I'd suggest it at an even higher price than it currently is when it's not on sale. You owe it to yourself to check this game out some day, it's worth it.

A game filled with puzzles that are fully plausible, but logically intensive, that progress you through the story wonderfully. Doesn't seem to be too interesting, but as you continue you start to piece things together and get more in depth into the story. You will be driven to keep playing even though the small amounts of horror keep you frightened to continue. The ending will leave you stupefied as you solve the last final puzzle of the game. Giving you the feeling of accomplishment and amazement, but leaving you craving for more. A game like no other that is sure to please. 10/10.
