AGON - The Lost Sword of Toledo
"It’s a very pretty game in terms of animation, background and character modeling. There are moments that really feel like you’ve walked into a painting and are being allowed to look around" - StrategyInformer
The new instalment of the exciting AGON adventure-saga takes place in the dawn of the 20th century in the time-honoured and historical Spanish town of Toledo.
Once ruled by Romans and Visigoths, Toledo has a rich history, making it the ideal setting for the story of Professor Samuel Hunt and his intriguing adventure to discover the legendary "Sword of Toledo".
The Professor arrives in the picturesque Spanish city, where time seems to pass by more slowly. Becoming aware of strange goings-on about him, Professor Hunt is involved in the search to find the mysterious "Sword of Toledo", which has been considered lost for many years. Thus, a new adventure starts for the British Professor...

Whilst the visual experience is in doubt amazing, the puzzles are a little easy, aiming perhaps for the 9-15 age range. Still, worth a play if you're bored!
Great visuals, nice series continuationCooberstooge | Sept. 11, 2012 | See all Cooberstooge's reviews »
I've played all of the AGON games, and while this may not, in my opinion, be the best of the series, this is a good entry point for those new to the AGON titles. The recap done of the previous games covers enough that new players will know what they're about to get into, but not so much so that you'd want to avoid playing the earlier games.
The visuals are quite nice to look at, and remind one of those found in scenery collections of the old masters. Everything has nice, warm tones that only serve to relax the player, yet encourages them to hunt around for the necessary clues. The sound is rather subdued, so you'll somewhat tune it out during play - it is nice to listen to, though, but at such a volume as to be easily confused with background noise.
The puzzles and clues you must find and solve are, for the most part, of a below-average difficulty. While this may serve to turn some off of the title, even younger gamers will be able to play and enjoy it - I didn't mind the ease with which I played through it, but this no doubt shortens the amount of time you'll get out of the game.

Something about Agon4 feels lacking what the last three titles had. It has the look and the edge but missing the core. First off..to anyone new: this one gives you a pretty bad recap of the last three games. So it already feels like a cash cow: it tries to appeal to a lot of people. You can tell by the easily solved clues,puzzles, and etc. Challenge? Maybe for kids. The story isn't that great this time around too. I suggest people play the previous titles before trying this. Save for spoilers.

4th Agon game where Samuel Hunt go to Toledo in order to translate an old and encoded document. You don't need to play the previos Agon games, this one tells you what happened earlier so you can play just this one and enjoy it anyway. The game offers great and complex puzzles but it's a pity that doen's offer some kind of clues when you miss an important object that you need in order to advance in the story.
