About This Game

***Not Compatible with Mac OS 10.8.x and above***

Agent Nelson Tethers just solved the biggest case of his career. So why isn't he satisfied? There’s still the case of a missing eraser factory foreman, a whispering madness is still creeping from mind to mind, and a troubling recurrence of... creatures... is lurking into the town.
The FBI's Department of Puzzle Research has marked the case closed -- are they sweeping it under the rug? Or worse, do they not even care? Worried that the case will languish forever unsolved, Tethers must go rogue and venture back to the eerie town of Scoggins, Minnesota to solve the mystery of "the Hidden People" once and for all.

Puzzle Agent 2's storyline is slightly longer than Puzzle Agent, completed slightly more than 5 hours.

It is a continuation from the first, searching for the missing foreman who was being taken away by creepy looking Hidden People. To solve the mystery, you have to go through various puzzles.

Overall, it is an enjoyable game.

A quirky puzzle game that reminded me a bit of Fargo with a hint of Twin Peaks thrown in. Not much replay value though.

In order to get all the achievements, you have to get all the puzzles right on the first try and without using hints. So, unless you don't mind replaying the game, I would suggest cross-checking your answers with a walkthrough before submitting.

This is one game; not two. You should get it if you can get both games for less than five dollars.

Pros
- The videos will give you a feel for the game. It is an interesting, slow paced game that has a twist here and there.
- Humor is sprinkled into the game.
- Getting your pen and paper out is satisfying for some of the puzzles.
- The fact it costs the taxpayer so much per puzzle is both funny and realistic.
- There is a resolution to the second game but there could be more (the right way to end the story).
- The premise for the game is hilarious because it's realisitic.

Cons
- A third or more of the puzzles are completely throw away.
- The first game is NOT COMPLETE. 37 puzzles and half a story is not a full game.
- the second game is NOT COMPLETE 34 puzzles aand half a story is not a full game.
- There should be a better way to make sure you get all the puzzles before leaving a scene.
- They should cut off dialogue options that you've already heard (you can talk to the same person again and on it will repeat when they're done but that means you'll have to repeat dialogue at least once per person per situation to make sure you hear everything they have to say.)

Tips
- Always look carefully at the images behind numbers or other puzzles, they can provide clues.

2/5 get it on sale!

Puzzle Agent 2 picks up the story right where we left it. The ending of PA1 didn't answer all the questions, and now agent Tethers is back on it! Scoggins here we come back! The plot is better than the first game, there are more puzzles even though some of them are very trivial to solve. This "second chapter" of Puzzle Agent is long as much as the first one, about 3 or 4 hours at best. Again, like the first one these kind of games are probably more suitable and enjoyable by kids, but still...
