Om detta spel

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.

Half of the puzzles are just barely hard enough to be stimulating, a tenth of them have incomplete descriptions that doom you to fail on the first try, and the rest are trivial. The story's kind of amusing, and intrudes on the puzzles in exciting ways sometimes. Overall, provides light entertainment for a couple of hours.

Puzzle Agent 1 and Puzzle Agent 2

I think in the first episode the puzzles are a little bit harder,but the story (in my opinion) is not as good as in the 2nd episode. I think in Puzzle Agent 2 is a little bit enjoyable .(In MY opinion).

Short review (No Spoiler)
The story is very intresting,addicitive. I think it was not a point and click game,because of story. Nelson Tethers (The detective or FBI Puzzle Researcher) is a funny guy. The narration is awesome,The graphics are very good. I like this style.
The animation was good as well.
I think:
Graphics: 10/10
Story : 10/10
Narration : 10/10


I think it is a good game and not expensive. :)

Puzzle instructions are often the most difficult part of the puzzle. Otherwise they are often too easy. The fun story doesn't really make up for the shoddy puzzles. Worth playing if you got it in a bundle, but hard to recommend buying.

If you're looking for a lot of puzzles and a bit of a humorous story, this is a good game. The puzzles are mostly arbitrary (i.e., they don't further the plot, but they do allow the plot to progress) and a bit easy at times, but it's a fun and relaxing game to play to keep the mind sharp. The plot contains enough intrigue and humour to motivate you to finish and play the next in the series. Voice acting was very enjoyable, and I quite enjoyed the art design - good cartooning here.

If you like those bulky puzzle books that are sold at the front of grocery stores or the Professor Layton series you'll enjoy this. The art, storyline, and characters are offbeat and charming. I like that the main character is a dork yet competent at his job and I love how the female characters are as weird looking and interesting as the male characters. The gameplay is basically going from place to place talking to people and solving puzzles.

I didn't actually like this game, but I finished it. This is basically a easier version of professor Layton. Some of the puzzles are very hard, others you easily get on the first try, and some make you facepalm yourself. It's alright. I've bought the second game and will play that one too. At least until I find something better to do.

I absolutely love playing a game with good logic puzzles, especially if there's an interesting story to go with my puzzle-solving adventures. This game may not have the most difficult or interesting puzzles I've ever played, but the weird and off-the-wall story combined with an interesting musical score still had me hooked as I went around the small town in Minnesota trying to solve the mystery. It may not be worth the full price of admission since the approximately 40 puzzles only take a small handful of hours to solve, but if it's on a good sale, you might as well try it for yourself.

Puzzle agent is a light adventure/puzzle game with a lot of charm and some imaginative puzzles, based upon the work by Graham Annable (which I was entirely unfamiliar with when I played the game)

Graphics & Sound
Puzzle agent has a very distinct art style, one that I guess is a bit of a love it or hate it kind of deal. It's very consistent though, everything looks like it belongs in the world, and nothing looks out of place. Personally, I found the game to be nice looking, in its own peculiar way.
The sound design also works well with what the game tries to be. The voice actors do a good job at portraying the different characters, and while there are no Oscar winning performances here, it works well. The voice acting also helps lend the game a lot of personality, which makes it memorable for more than just its puzzles.

Story & setting
In Puzzle Agent you play as agent Nelson Tethers, who works at the US department of Puzzle research. There are trouble in the small town of Scoggins and their eraser factory, which supplies erasers to the White House. Thus your job is of utmost importance to the safety of the country.
Scoggins is a peculiar place. Everyone is obsessed with puzzles, and not only that, everyone is also a bit Norwegian. Your job is to find out what is going on, and why there are pointy red hats seen everywhere.
To make matters worse, the entire city is out of chewing gums, something that agent Tethers need in order to focus on his puzzles. This ties in directly with the games hint system, if you spend some of the gum you have in you've picked up you get a hint for whatever puzzle you're working on.

Gameplay
Gameplay is mostly straight forward. You click on objects like in a point & click adventure game, gather talk to people, and quite often you're given a puzzle. These puzzles don't fit in as well with the world as something in say Syberia or The Longest Journey, but are their own self contained little entities. This does allow the game designers to constantly mix things up with new and interesting puzzles, but at the expense of some immersion. If you've ever played a Professor Layton game, you'll feel right at home here, the puzzles are handled in a similar way. And the vast majority of the puzzles are fun to solve.
Puzzle Agent is not a particularly lengthy game. The game can easily be beaten in less than 3h if you're comfortable with solving logical puzzles.

Final thoughts
Puzzle agent is an excellent little puzzle game with a really fun story, and some well thought out puzzles. At a base price of 5€, it's hard to not recommend this game, despite its short length.

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.

This is like a mini Professor Layton game.

About 35 -ish puzzles exist in the game and the rest is well-written dialogue with a quirky mystery-type short story.

I would recommend it as a gift to a puzzle-loving friend or for younger audiences. Hindsight being 20/20, I wouldn't have bought it for myself, even on sale. I don't see myself replaying it.

I don't know why there are people saying that it won't run on OS X 10.8 or later but mine is 10.11 and apparently I've successfully played 4+hrs...
As for the game itself, I remember I played it for 4hrs straight when I first bought it then it's today, 0.6hrs, and I'm about to uninstall it.
It sure is a good time waster, but the puzzles are kinda too simple and meaningless regarding the story line (which is why it's a good time waster).

At first, I found this game fun and perky, one of the very first games I bought on Steam. I enjoyed the first few puzzles, and walking around, talking to people. But as soon as I arrived in Scoggins, I instantly hated this game.

The snowmobile puzzle and many others don't even show up. I had to waste all my hints and time trying to find out where the logs even were. Some puzzles were unreasonably bad, and flat out stupid. I am still unable to get past the time puzzle at the eraser company plant because nothing is showing up. I can't see anything on the clock, even though I know when it happened. A complete waste of time and money.

Another thing, you can't save or back out of the game until you're at the hotel, which is past the invisible snowmobile puzzle. I couldn't even shut down my computer, it was frozen on the Puzzle Agent screen. I had to figure out the invisible snowmoblie puzzle, which took about 20 minutes, just so I could back out of the freaking game.

Usually I love Telltale games, which is why I bought this one. But I was so disappointed. Don't buy it, it's a waste of $4.99.

Not a bad game for what it is. Probably aimed at a slightly younger audience as the puzzles aren't anything really difficult.

The pacing was OK, if sometimes frustratingly slow waiting for animations etc. There isn't a lot of gameplay involved though, it took me less than 4 hrs total to play the whole way through the game at a casual pace.

Interesting theme about the "little people" woven into the story. I will be playing the second installment soon.
