When White House inquiries to the Scoggins Eraser Co. are answered only with curious puzzles, Nelson Tethers from the U.S. Department of Puzzle Research is sent on the case.
The strange events in Scoggins will challenge every ounce of Tethers’ expertise, and possibly his very wits too, with brainteasers at every turn: mazes, logic puzzles, riddles, and more. He soon realizes that these - along with the clinically pre-occupied townspeople, secret societies, and peculiar sounds from the forest - are intimately connected to the core mystery. And what's with the gnomes?
Created with indie comic artist Graham Annable's unique narrative and visual sensibilities, delivered with the distinctive Telltale storytelling style, Puzzle Agent is sure to challenge, thrill and engage in more ways than you can shake a cryptogram at!
Plentiful puzzles to challenge your neurons. See if you can find every puzzle to solve the mystery of Scoggins -- mazes, logic, riddles, brainteasers and more.
Investigate the strange, peculiar and mind-boggling to crack the case! Your discoveries provide clues to the larger mystery crippling the town, or uncover puzzles that must be solved to reveal answers ... or even more questions.
Hunting for Hints: Chewing gum helps Agent Tethers think and solve. Find and collect gum wads around the town to uncover hints if you get "stuck" in any puzzles.
Very fun, but shortomgtrent | Nov. 20, 2013 | See all omgtrent's reviews »
A very enjoyable puzzle game set in Minnesota (I know, eh??) with a good sense of humor and an interesting story. Each puzzle is different with instructions provided, which is important as there is no set theme for the puzzles. They also provide hints, though most puzzles should be easy enough for most puzzle buffs, so it's really just a courtesy. The only drawback is the game ends right when you feel you're getting started, but it is indeed quite enjoyable and unique and I don't regret buying it. If you're looking for a "different" puzzle game with a good dose of quirky humor, I recommend!

This game is amazing.It's challenging and I've had some trouble with some of the puzzles but when you put your mind to it you eventually get it.The story has very interesting characters which are crazy and fun if you ask me.If you ever have trouble completing a puzzle you can always use a hint,but in order to get a hint you need to collect bubble gum scattered all over the game.If you are a puzzle person you should definitely pick up this game and scratch your brain.

Puzzle Agent is exactly what its title claims to be. You play as Nelson Tethers, an FBI agent in the puzzle solving department who is called out to a snowy village in the back of beyond where odd things are happening.
Your mission is straightforward at first, but slowly progresses into the realm of the strange. In fact, there are several points in the story that can be rather creepy.
Puzzles range from simpler jigsaws to more challenging logic ones that may require gum chewing (the game's hint system) to solve, and are reminiscent of childhood days spent with your nose buried in a puzzle activity book.
The graphics aren't the best - if you're used to slick graphics from the latest games - but there is a hand-drawn charm to it. That, added to the superb voice acting helps to immerse the player into the story. The only sticking point is that the animation can be rather choppy at times.
So if you like puzzles, coupled with a short story that is both humorous and eerie by turns, Puzzle Agent will provide many hours of fun.

Puzzle Agent is another top-notch point and click adventure game from Telltale. Don't look at the game and assume it's a failed attempt by Telltale, it is surprisingly awesome. The artwork is amazing and it really helps create the atmosphere around the game. The voice acting is really good. The story isn't the best but does it's job. The puzzles are nice and require some thinking to get past. But some are just too easy and take only about a minute. This is one of Telltale's really underrated gems and I highly recommend you get it.

Telltale Games delivers yet another masterpiece with Puzzle Agent--a charming puzzle adventure with a mildly amusing story about an eraser shortage. As always with Telltale, voice acting is top notch, but this time they use crayon style graphics to set up a casual atmosphere that really gives this game a leisurely feel. Each puzzle is self-contained so there are no multi-level puzzles. It differs from traditional point-and-click puzzle adventures where you usually have to find several items or perform a specific sequence of actions before you can advance. Most of the puzzles are on the easy side, but they do throw in a few brainteasers that aren't obvious at first. There is a hint system which, if used, lowers your ranking for that specific puzzle, same as if you submit a wrong answer--although it is completely casual so there is really no reason to care about rank anyway. Puzzle gamers will certainly enjoy this.
