Nice characters, interesting story, and good music! Except they forgot the one thing that's important for any puzzle game: good puzzles.

The characters and story are great, but the "puzzles" fall a bit short. Some puzzles should just be re-named to: "Drag ♥♥♥♥ around and magically solve it", some rules are confusing and unclear, making you get extremely frustrated as you can only get a "passable" rating after you ♥♥♥♥ up once.

If you want to buy this game for its puzzles, don't. For that I would recommend this game's sequel: Puzzle Agent 2, as it does erveryting this game does wrong, right.

But if you want to get in touch with the story, just buy this game and play it.

Buy it but buy it on sale. The whole experience is pretty short and bare bones, but it has some genuine charm and more than a few more original puzzles (uncommon puzzle types) throughout which make the game more than worth to try out. About half the puzzles however are pretty standard visual puzzles either demanding trial-and-error reshuffelling which solve themselves or only demand the basic ability to trace out sequences visually. These are also enjoyable but it reduces several segments to time-sinks which aren't providing much exictement.

It's exactly what's promised. A point and click game filled with different mini logic and math puzzles. I enjoyed it a lot,

Fun but really short game play. Kind of expensive when you look at the total playability and also replay value. 1st puzzle was so easy I was a little disappointed, but they get more challenging. A fun story, looking forward to playing the sequel (when it's on sale).

Nelson Tethers, Puzzle Agent is a ... well Puzzle Game. You have to solve different puzzles with varying difficulties and each solution brings you closer in solving a strange case of a weird crime.

Red Herrings galore, so to say, Agent Tethers is of course also a strange little character, likeable because he himself is the weirdest little white collar that you might meet in games for some time. The game is short, I played it through with pauses in about 2 hours of pure playtime. The puzzles and riddles aren't so hard that you can't solve them - some of them were already used in other games, by the way. The game is captivating nonetheless. Mostly because the adventure style it was bound in.

The story is a funny naration and you'll be getting more paranoid by the minute while playing the game, oh and erasers aren't the only thing that you should mind... since the shortage is also affecting you, you'll have to collect used chewing gum... Have luck finding loads of those.

The interviewing section of this game also is quite funny. The solution is quick and easy. For a short term game of fun it's easily recomended. I liked it, therefore I will recomend it.

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.

Puzzle Agent is a quirky puzzle(s) game with a very strange but entertaining story. It’s worth the time!

I really enjoyed this game. The weird plot makes you want to keep playing, and the puzzles are varied. It's not the same thing over and over. It's not like a random point and click where nothing makes sense, nor is it like the "puzzle" games where all you do is hidden object screens with one or two puzzles throw in. It's truely unique in plot, style, setting, the amount of variety and really kinda everything. It's easy to jump into for a few minutes or for a while, and the puzzle grading system is very fair. Using one hint doesn't insta-fail you, and using 20 hints but still gatting right won't get you the top score.

This is one of those games you really just have to play in order to understand it. I bought the second one right after playing the first.

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.

Great family friendly point and click adventure game. However it is a little different from the norm. There is no inventory and almost all of the game involves individual seperate puzzles rather than the usual multiple room item based puzzles.

Also be sure to buy both puzzle agent 1 and 2. The first game ends on a rather big cliffhanger

You'd think you've got the correct answer when trying to solve a puzzle.
Much like math. You're always wrong even when you think you could be right.

Anyways, good game 7/10.

Basically Professor Layton for PC.
This is a good thing.
Puzzles are interesting. There just aren't ENOUGH.
Story is weird. You will never see garden gnomes the same way again.
Art style is unconventional. I like it, some won't.
Puzzzzzzzzlesssssss.
