Puzzle Agent is a game that meets its price as far as quantity, but falls a little short when it comes to quality. This game isn't exactly much of a puzzler, as most of its puzzles can be solved within a minute. As if that didn't' allow you to barge through them quick enough, the hint system makes it really easy to cheat through puzzles. While I do commend the hint system for being very well developed and fair for both puzzle noobs and puzzle experts, I feel as though it allows for the pace of the game to be sped up a lot.
The quality of the puzzles was the real disappointing thing, but there is enough variety in the puzzles to keep you from being bored. If only the difficulty was increased a little bit, that would have made the gameplay of Puzzle Agent amazing.
Being a point-and-click puzzle game, Puzzle Agent relies on its story to keep the gamer engaged. The story is weird, eerie, and feels like it was a mix of Stephen King and CreepyPasta. While I was a bit disappointed with the story's ending, after some thought it really was the best way they could have ended the story.
Thus, while Puzzle Agent is nowhere near the best puzzle game, it is worth the $5 and definitely worth picking up on sale.
