A Puzzling Adventure with a Twist!
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?
* 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.
* Creative collaboration with indie comic artist Graham Annable (Grickle comics and animated shorts)

What's New in Version 1.1
Puzzle Agent now supports iOS 5!
Engaging and funny
This comic style adventure/puzzle game is the best thing I have stumbled onto within the broad spectrum of iOS entertainment apps. Truly, I have discovered that there is something here for everyone! Puzzle Agent and Puzzle Agent 2 are now available in HD and look great on the retina displays. We follow and aid mild mannered Nelson Tethers on his determined quest to unravel the strange and sometimes "terrifying" events in the snowbound burg of Scoggins, Minnesota, solving dozens of puzzles along the way, each of which drags us kicking and screaming through the whole bizarre story of why the eraser factory blew up.
The drawings are first rate, the music unique and fitting, and the characters hilarious. The puzzles can be challenging, but if you collect enough ABC gum there are clues that lead you in the right direction. Besides, we get gnomes, Minnesota accents, snowmobiles, dead astronauts, quirky diner denizens, cheater wearing FBI agents, single minded scientists, mystical brotherhoods, and delightful craziness in great abundance. The Puzzle Agent apps are must haves for anyone with a sense of humor. Now I wonder...what could possibly go wrong in Bermuda?
charming and fun
Fun, captivating game. I liked the subdued graphics, a nice change of pace from the in-your-face neon colored imagery in many games. The voices were great. You definitely want to play this when you can have the sound on.
I was worried initially because the first puzzles are very easy, but they do get progressively harder as the game goes on. I agree with some commentators that a few of the puzzles could have used clearer instructions but most worked well. Several hours of fun. When I think about game pricing, I often compare to going to a movie. $$$ This was more than 2 hours of enjoyment at less than the price of a movie ticket. I'm satisfied.
The ending was disappointing. The story and characters were engaging all along but then the ending didn't really explain anything. Maybe that's the final puzzle? Trying to figure out what the heck happened in the story? Were the foreman and agent ever really in space or was that a hallucination? Why was the eraser factory damaged to begin with? Will we ever know?
Puzzles not too hard, but SO much fun!
Really engaging story that is just this side of weird. Great (tho simple) animation, voice overs and sound effects bring this story of a 'puzzle agent' of the FBI to life. Takes place in some Minnesota backwater, and the author's hit the vernacular DEAD ON (i'm married to a minnesotan, and the dialogue had me laughing hysterically). The simple puzzles move you along in a story that deals with the mysterious shut down of the town's eraser factory (they supply the White House, don't ya know!), and the even stranger disappearance of the factory foreman. Comes complete with forest gnomes.
Yeah, it's expensive-ish but the length of the story and the high production values make it worth the money.
