このゲームについて

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.

Overview
This game is very similar to Detective Grimoire, where you play a detective tasked with solving a mystery. Here, you travel to some town to find out more about some strange events that have been going on in their eraser factory.

Likes
  1. Art style & graphics
  2. Story & premise


Dislikes
  1. Insufferably slow
    • Intro took ages to play through - we see several seconds of a person's stunned expression, and other such unimportant, inane things. Is there really a need, for god's sake?
    • Every single conversation is animated, and takes a long time to get through. You absolutely cannot fast forward anything. (See point #2 below.)
  2. No way to fast forward dialogue without missing out on reading it
    • The way dialogues take place in this game is like this: as every character speaks, a text bubble appears, and the text only displays as they speak, and not at once. Now, if you try to make the dialogue go faster, clicking just causes the entire text bubble to disappear, instead of making the remaining undisplayed text appear! How stupid is that?!
    • I wouldn't mind so much if characters said important things with every speech bubble, but most of the time the text is extraneous, so you are forced to sit through tons of worthless dialogue before you can finally glean the important stuff.
  3. Puzzles are way too simple
    • E.g. Put fragments of a torn picture together. And said fragments are very big, not small or complicated in the least.
    • E.g. Click on squares to rotate them until they all face the correct way, forming a complete picture.
  4. Puzzles are misleading
    • E.g. One puzzle said you would find a "hidden object" once you rotated the squares correctly to form the correct picture. There was no such "hidden object".
  5. Some puzzle instructions are very poor
    • E.g. In one puzzle, you must place logs to make your character go the correct way. You are supposed to "pass 2 traffic lights" along the way. Now, I had no idea the 2 traffic lights were "passable" (i.e. your character could go through them), as opposed to being an obstacle on the board. Also, when you say "pass", do you mean you need to pass them on the left? Or right? Or through them (which was the intention)? As a result of the complete ambiguity, this puzzle had to be attempted a 2nd time before I finally understood what the game wanted.
  6. Way too much hand-holding in the beginning
    • At the start of the game, instead of asking you if you want a tutorial or stuff, the game just SPECIFICALLY TELLS YOU WHAT TO DO next. As in, "talk to man", "enter hotel", etc. This went on for quite a while, until I thought the entire game would be like this.
  7. No free exploration + no real choice
    • If you're looking for a true adventure game where you can freely roam and check out objects in your own time, this is not that game. It is extremely linear, and most of the time you are implicitly told what to do or where to go next. So it plays out more like an interactive novel, only with so-called puzzles to solve along the way.

Conclusion
Based on the interface, excessive hand-holding, extremely slow dialogue & game pace, way too easy puzzles, etc, I have to conclude that this game is more for kids. As an adult, I just did not have the patience to deal with the horrible mechanics of the text bubbles in particular. I cannot for the life of me understand why clicking to fast forward wouldn't just show you all the text immediately rather than make it completely disappear. This was extremely frustrating and irritating and I could not see myself sitting through this game waiting for countless text bubbles to disappear.

Telltale Games forgot to mention on the store page that if you're running this on a version of OSX of 10.8 or higher, the game will either not work or will be so bugged that you can't even access the first puzzle of the game. It's simply unplayable.

Before buying Puzzle Agent on Steam, please consider buying Puzzle Agent on GOG. GOG.com is home to DRM-free games and supports older games far better than Steam does.

Game: Puzzle Agent
Developer and publisher: Telltale Games
Released: 10 June, 2010
Genre: Point-and-Click Mystery with Comedy
Setting: Winter, 2010, Scoggins, Minnesota, U.S.A., Earth
Spoiler-free plot summary: You play as Agent Nelson Tethers, the only member of the Puzzle Research Division of the FBI. In his first ever field assignment, he is tasked with reopening the factory that supplies the White House with erasers.

Full review: Puzzle Agent is a typical point-and-click adventure game, but shorter than average, though higher in quality.

First off, Puzzle Agent is set in the Grickle universe, made by Graham Annable. Grickle is based in a very surreal setting of the supernatural and downright bizarre, so those already familiar with his works will find themes in this game familiar.

The puzzles in Puzzle Agent can be a mixed bag of easy and difficult, though it is pretty consistent with the easier puzzles being found at the beginning of the game and the more difficult ones being found near the end of the game. Puzzle Agent also comes with an interesting help system; Nelson finds it easier to solve puzzles when chewing gum, but can only chew on three pieces of gum per puzzle, one hint given per piece of gum chewed. Thanks to this helpful hint system, I didn't have to look online for any guides when I was completely stuck.

I can't talk about the plot of Puzzle Agent without spoiling anything as everything kicks off right from the first minute, but if you are interested in learning what happens, watch Ross Scott's Game Dungeon episode here.

Do I recommend buying Puzzle Agent? Yes, especially if you're in the mood for a nice, small puzzle game. For NZD$5.99, I'd wait for a sale for when this game is $2 - $3 before buying it.

This game is essentially a lo-fi Professor Layton game. While I ultimately found this to be a pleasant experience with a good amount of humor, I did not enjoy the uneven scaling of puzzle difficulty. In puzzles based around putting things together, jigsaw-style, the hitboxes for clicking on items are often strange and make it difficult to move things into place. This style of puzzle also relies on an uneven fit. Some puzzles do a poor job of explaining what is an obstacle that will block you and what is simply there for decoration. This game can be fun if you are willing to forgive its flaws, and the characterization and story do have a good amount of heart, but the core gameplay mechanic of the puzzles is the game's weakest link. Additionally, there are just under 40 puzzles in this game, with many of those being variations on a few different puzzle mechanics. If you are looking for puzzles, you will probably find more value elsewhere. If you are a fan of the Grickle comics, you may find yourself more able to enjoy this for what it is.

Brilliant puzzle game with relatively easy puzzles. Atmosphere from Twin Peaks with mysterious characters and story. Good voice acting and simple art style.

巷で言われているようにまんまレイトンです。しかしこちらはだいぶギャグ要素あり。
突っ込み不在の世界で登場人物が静かにボケ倒すどたばたコメディ・・・かと思えばいきなりホラーな感じになったり、
次はミステリー色が出たり、やっぱり登場人物みんな突っ込みどころ満載だったり、なんだか忙しいゲームです。
終わり方が正直2前提で、しっくりこないのと、謎のビックリ要素があったりと、誰を層にしてるか全くわかりませんが、
独特の気の抜けた世界とおとぼけたキャラクターは妙に中毒性があり、魅力的でした。
謎解きのクオリティも計算系は割と少なくレイトン系の中ではしっかり洗練されているかなと。

お話を期待してるなら、2とセットで買うべし買うべし。

FBIの「パズル捜査官」となって、パズルを解きながら消しゴム工場の事件解決に挑む作品。基本的にはパズルゲームだが、探偵物のような仕立てとなっている。パズルは易しめだが、時々英語が読めないと何も出来ないところがある。ストーリーは若干怖い。暇つぶしにやるゲームとしてはオススメ。
