About This Game

Agent Awesome -- a brand new strategy game for PC and Mac -- is the debut title from Chaos Industries. As Agent A., you must use your tactical expertise to plan the perfect strategy and storm through the building of your former employer, Engineering Vicious Ideas Labs (E.V.I.L.).

Each of the 12 levels has been designed with both a combat and a stealth approach in mind -- and both styles bring the same rewards. Agent Awesome offers deep tactical gameplay that mixes elements of the tower offense and stealth genres.

Play as the title character who -- after a night out with his pal, Michael Anger -- gets drunk-dared into showing he is the ultimate badass by storming and eliminating all the middle management of his former employer, E.V.I.L.

You must clear all 12 floors of the building while fighting or dodging hilarious enemies such as flying sharks and kombat koalas. Everything in the game has been tailored with the objective of making the player crack a smile.

Get ready for:
12 levels of pure awesomeness!
Explosions, bullets, action, murder . . . and koalas!
Deep tactical gameplay
Kill everyone . . . or not! It´s your choice. (Gamers love choices!)
Lots and lots of weapons . . . and they’re upgradable!
Everything, literally everything will make you laugh. (We are cool like that!)

Designed by Chaos Industries and developed by Chundos Studio, Agent Awesome will become your new favorite game.

My playtime: 22.8h (based on steam).
Grindy Achievement: Yes (1 achievement).
Optional Achievement: Yes (45 achievements).
Difficult Achievement: No.
Developer Response: No (last response is in 18 Feb 2015).

*Note that around 13 achievements are bugged.

Agent Awesome is a turn based stealth game where you play as an agent which plans to wipe out everyone in his previous company. There are 12 levels in total and each level can be completed in a few minutes to a few hours (if you retry a lot of times).

The game is using 3D graphics and it's cute enough. Design-wise, the mapping is quite odd and looks like a bunch of related themed item grouped together while level design-wise, the mapping, or maybe should be said the level design itself, is good enough.

I have to admit that the first stage music is quite boring. However, i really like the last stage bgm. The sound keep on playing in my head until now. It might be because i redo the last level too much though, but really, the bgm is really great.

Honestly, i don't really understand most of the story because the core story is explained in a cutscene with no subtitle. I have trouble in listening without subtitle and although the cutscene seems to be very good and serious, the character's mouth doesn't even move when talking. It's like watching static images with a hard to listen voice in it.

Each stage has some dialogues which can be turned off in the setting. However, the game mechanics is also explained in the same dialogue which will disappear when the dialogue is turned off.

The game
The game has 12 levels which is divided into 3 stages. Each stage has its own enemies to hide or kill from and its own music and mapping. In this game, you have to avoid or kill the enemies in the level. Sometimes, there will be an additional task such as setting up a bomb, although it doesn't matter at all.

The game starts off with a tutorial which explains basic controls for the game. Strangely, even though i understand the tutorial, i fail to execute it in the next level. I didn't know how to attack the enemy before i redo the level and tutorial a few times. The tutorial also omitted an important control in the game, which is a right mouse button which can be dragged to change the camera's viewpoint. However, the camera's movement is still very limited and sometimes it fails to display the important thing that i want to see.

In each level, you'll be provided with a Tactical Screen which is basically a screen which can be used to assign your character movement and which weapon you will use to kill the enemy. You'll assign the movement by clicking a node in each intersection. However, a node in the east south corner in the last level seem to be missing a dot. It also can be tiring to click the same node over and over again when you replay the stage several times.

The game itself is simple but hard to master. While the game can be completed in any way you want, there are some bonuses which can be earned from doing something specific in a level (such as killing all enemies or not killing all enemies) which can be hard to do, especially on the last level where timing is very important. You might have to do the same thing over and over again just to get it right, and clicking the node every time can make you bored.

There are a lot of weapons which you can use and upgrade with some additional item such as Body Armor which works like a damage nullifier and Health Kit which can restore your HP. You'll have to use Magnificent, an in-game currency which can be collected by completing a level, to buy the upgrades.

- 12 levels, 3 stages
- Buyable and upgradeable weapons

- Cutscenes can be a pain in the ♥♥♥ to those who can't listen english
- Tutorial need to be polished up more
- Clicking the nodes in the Tactical Screen can be tiring

Should you buy this game?
Although it has some broken achievements, the game itself is quite fun. The game will be very cheap when it's on sale, so you better buy it when it's happening.

This game was reviewed using a code sent by the developer.

Unfortunately for me, Agent Awesome, wasn't all that awesome. The game is a turn based type stelath/action. All of which is something I normally hugely enjoy, but something didn't sit quite right for me here.

The turn based mechanic didn't seem to feel right for me. The enemies seem to walk around in real time, while your character can only move/make actions in turns. I have to say I did enjoy the first level or two but after that it seemed to get more and more difficult to control and manover around the levels.

I did find a few bugs in game where bad guys could see me through walls, run straight up to me regardless of turns and take half of my health off in two hits before I had even had a turn, this almost turned into a game breaker for me.

I do enjoy the art style, even though the graphics could be a little more polished. I also enjoyed the writing, very crude humor, one of the better features here.

Sadly, in it's current state, I cannot recommend Agent Awesome. Hopefully we'll see a patch/update soon to fix the bugs.

When playing games like Agent Awesome one has to approach with a sense of whimsy and care free nature. Why? Well, the developer did make a game but it's game that doesn't take itself too seriously, and that feels true even in some features of the game itself. The game aims to be funny and again not be too serious. There are a lot of pop culture references, cheesy dialogue, and wacky enemies. If this is your type of thing, you might wanna keep reading. Now before we continue any further, I feel like I should just get this outta the way and say that Agent Awesome is an App ported to PC. Ergo there is no resolution control, and many other features missing that you would expect in a PC title. It's important to note the game doesn't natively support widescreen either. The menus and entire control scheme is completely based off a touch pad screen. This isn't my favorite thing in the world but that is just the way things are.

So with that out of the way, Agent Awesome is a turn based stealth/action game. The story goes after meeting up with somebody who rhymes with Mick Furry, you are dared to eliminate everybody inside E.V.I.L. a mega corporation of evil who happens to be your former employer. They are conducting evil experiments and have an assortment of insane crap between you and your objective, ranging from flying sharks, killer koalas and plain old guards.

The art style of Agent Awesome, just like the humor of the game isn't too serious. Characters have huge heads and everything has a cartoonish vibe to it. This, I liked about Agent Awesome. At the beginning, there is also a humorous cut scene about your drunken debauchery. The levels, on the other hand, left something to be desired. Aside from occasional props, most of the levels had obviously been slapped together kinda like a Minecraft design, square by square. One thing to be noted is how pathing works in this game. All the paths are kinda laid out for you and you can't really stray from the path.

The way combat/stealth works is that you click/tap the back arrow which brings you into the tactical planning screen. From this screen you can map out which path you will take by clicking on points and connecting them together. To kill guards you tap/click on weapons and then on the victim. Once combat engages, both parties take turns whacking at each other with their perspective weapons. Depending on your loadout, health, and enemy strength your usually going to win. There are ways to screw it up, but it really is a bit of a no-brainer for the most part. My issue lies with the tactical screen. To do anything at all you must return to this screen, so you end up looking at a map more than anything else. For a game, this is very jarring and disjointed. Yes, you see the character perform your actions but it becomes silly when you want him to do something simple like just move to the next node. You have to pause the game, plan out a route and then go back into the game.

Now, Agent Awesome does have quite a bit of weapons to mess around with. The one I found the most useful was the Garrote. With this item you could sneak up behind guards and kill them instantly, with no struggle. One part that was funny and, I think was a glitch, is that I would instantly teleport on their back or side depending on how close I was. This also made the game incredibly easy. The level designs I will say were pretty solid for the most part. You could stealth your way thru or slaughter indiscriminately.

One thing blissfully missing from the PC version are micro-transactions. Instead you have cash/points you earn after every level that you can use to upgrade the agent's armory. These points do rack up a bit slowly, more than likely leading to a bit of grinding to get all the best gear. The music was fine, the sound effects were standard. Nothing exceptional, but it didn't become hard on the ears. I did enjoy was the voice acting despite this. Agent Awesome obviously is a fan of Archer Sterling, they seem to take queues from the show as far as dialogue.

The game has about 12 levels for you to sink your teeth into. The levels can get rather large and there are options to turn off the dialogue for repeated playthroughs. You can probably squeeze three to four hours out of the game. Agent Awesome also features in-game achievements. There is also an encyclopedia that I found humorous.

I will say that I haven't really seen many games like Agent Awesome, whether that is a good or bad thing is still up to debate. It works great for the mobile market but feels a little lacking on PC. Keep in mind though, that this is a game purely for stupid fun sake. This isn't Skyrim or anything. It's called Agent Awesome. What do you expect? So if you're looking for something different, weird, and maybe even a little stupid fun at times, check out Agent Awesome. It's $9.99 on Steam but you can probably get it cheaper on the mobile market.

A strategy game with turn based combat and real time movement. While this definitely works, I found the game mechanics to be too clunky and just not fun enough to warrant finishing. Also the game is only a few hours long.

Agent Awesome is a strategy game with real-time movement and turn-based combat based on the Unity engine.
You take control of Agent Awesome who gets drunk and is dared to show his awesomeness by taking down his former employer.

The gameplay is similar to other tower attack style games in which the player has to fight his way through different levels on a pre-defined path.
With each completed level you earn money that you can use to buy/upgrade one of the 12 available weapons to be even more awesome the next time.

After playing this game for a while I can say that
this game is still lacking important features like a detailed options menu (for graphics and controls)
and has quite a few minor issues that need to be addressed like:
- pixelated graphics (button graphics) on higher resolutions
- camera movement speed needs some adjustment (too fast in game world, too slow in tactical screen)
- switching to fullscreen is only possible by editing the windows registry

Apart from these issues the game has funny dialogues, a good art style and the cameos in the first cutscene are a nice touch.
The sound is not the best but it not the worst either. It has a nice soundtrack that fits the humorous style of the game.

Overall the bugs in the game are annoying sometimes,
but the gameplay can also be very challenging when trying to beat the level in different ways.
The game has potential to be a great game, it just needs to be polished a little bit more.

For the future I would really like to see:
- a Linux port (shouldn't be too hard with the Unity engine)
- a level editor to play user created content
- Steam Trading cards

If you are into these type of tower attack like strategy games this game is definitely worth to look into.
Just keep in mind that this game is no AAA production. The developers really appreciate your support to keep improving this game.

I have then the game when my brother was playing it. Some bugs are really annoying. We can only hope that the developer get some money to fix some bugs, like readding the health increase (what some players see as disadvantage, even if they protection suit and health pack helps you or the thug mask). The game is not hard like some players says all 12 levels are easy-middle. You just need to use your brain. Its funny to try get the highest highscore i have after 100 Min. a score of over 20 Millions with out cheating and its still feel i dont make the best perfect way to it. The game has many potential to find out. The Intro and Story is short but quality fine (like the Leonardo di Caprio/ Martin Sheen Jokes). I feel the 8 years work are compressed in this game, even if you have only 5 min real fun that its worth of this game and my brother has over 25 and i had 100 minute even if i saw the most of my brothers playing. Sure its better you be a strategy fan or a real gamer that want see all and get the best scores and hardest challenges (pistol only, Ghandi Ghost Bonus, Master Strategy+ Genocide+ Ghost Bonus Combos) but even for the others there are 3-5 hours fun for good gamers and for middle gamers till 10 and 15. Even if it feel clunky. You have some options to do so you can make 2-3 walktroughs and enjoy. The most negative reviews have not even 1 hour play time or then under 3-5 hours and write about the not good enough graphic of a indie game. Its the unique gameplay that make this game to unique game experience. You can change all time where you go, some weapons dont kill some enemys, so you need to get the right weapon with you and look for your ammo or avoid it somehow or pass it in small timing phases. Give the game a chance and enough time to find out all the little details and just enjoy it even if its only some minutes, it was hopefully worth to be entertained. Thx for your time.

Fun humour game for phone but is not really same on computer with this controls. Or maybe that is the problem that it is just phone version for PC and nothing new or interesting. Price is too high and that is why I give thumbs down. Get this for your phone!

Dialogues want to be funny, but fills exactly the definition of bad and cringy thing everyone should avoid. Luckily, it can be disabled.
Graphics are ugly. Music is annoying (but can be disabled too). Animations are sometimes bugged or loop themselves for longer than necessary (e.g. dying 4 or 5 times before the level actually ends).
Game throws new mechanics once in a while but does NOTHING to explain how it works or what to do to defeat it. So you may almost complete a level and then die because you didn't know what to do to survive. This made me rage quit. I don't need to waste any more time for a game like that.

It also takes a moment to get used to the controls, but eventually it's not that bad. It's the smallest of the sins this game makes.
