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.

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.
