    Puzzle Agent has some flaws, but for price of 9.99$ it's not a bad deal.

    Rated on July 03, 2010 by wrednajasobaka

    Puzzle agent is a short and inexpensive game so I'll get right to the point: 1. Puzzles. Overall, I found puzzles to be too easy, and some even trivial. There were few that got me stumped but that's...

    Gamespot's review is way off. The game is quirkily charming, the puzzles are easy/medium and well explained.

    I read Gamespot's review after having played the game myself. What I found was that the Gamespot reviewer is way off in terms of the puzzles (its difficulty and unclear explanation). The charming a...

    The game world is wonderful, but some repetitve and poorly designed puzzles drag this one down to being mediocre.

    I love the Grickle shorts -- just go search YouTube for "Grickle Santa" to get a good taste of these comics. That world transfers itself into Puzzle Agent pretty well -- there's a lot of creepy and da...

    Looks good, family orientated storyboard, funny characters....<br /> sketchy puzzles, poor communication

    I would call the puzzles in this game to be stupid. This doesn't ruin the game though. In fact I found the game worth playing through and I felt rewarded. This rewarded feeling came from difficult puz...

    David Lynch's twin peaks meets cartoon comedy.

    Rated on August 09, 2010 by JoeBigfoot

    This is a hard one to judge. I picked it up from steam for 7 bux as something to play with my girlfriend (she likes puzzle games) and I guess for that purpose the game was quite successful. You ...

    Great concept and great game. If you like puzzle games like the Professor Layton series then this one is for you.

    Puzzle Agent by Telltale games for me has been a long awaited release for the iPhone and iPad. Already on the Mac and PC, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this portable installment. I opted for the...

    If you like weird puzzles and a even weirder Twin Peaks type story in the backwoods of Minnesota then this is your game!

    Rated on November 25, 2010 by gijas

    This game is about puzzles mainly but has a hand-drawn cartoon type story thats charming and immersive as well. The puzzles are mostly logical in nature but some meaning a few are confusing. Luckly ma...

    There are too many flaws for this game to be acceptable.

    Rated on December 18, 2010 by acousticpicker

    Gameplay: 2/5 + As far as gameplay goes, this is a mishmash of small puzzles that is strung together in a point-and-click style world. As much as I enjoy puzzles, I thought the puzzles had so many p...

    Fantastic presentation more than makes up for Puzzle Agent's minimal flaws.

    Rated on July 29, 2011 by popov89

    Puzzle Agent is filled to the brim with superb presentation. The music is light and enjoyable and the visuals (hand-drawn by the capable Graham Annable) help draw-pun intended-the player into the worl...
