Puzzle Agent 2 is an adventure/puzzle game and it is the sequel to Nelson Tethers: Puzzle Agent video game. In this game as well as in the previous one the player has no inventory and can talk with other characters. There is a huge emphasis on puzzle solving which also can be done through dialogues with other characters. Some of the dialogues change the way the story goes and has consequences in the game’s progress. But there are also other kinds of puzzles like a jigsaw, or involving math and logic. There are always some clues or rules on how to solve puzzles in the game. During a puzzle, the player can ask for no more than three hints that help to solve puzzles but it costs a chewing gum. About gum – it seems that there is a shortage of gum in the city the game is set and Nelson Tethers, the same protagonist from the previous game, has to collect pieces of chewing gum throughout the game. During each puzzle, Nelson has not only to solve it but also to send his answer to HQ, who either approves it or not. If he succeeds, he gets a reward depending on how much hints he used and how many failed attempts he made.

Puzzle Agent 2 reviews and comments

Very nice, very funny basic Mood. The Difficulty Of the Puzzles varies greatly. Many are easy to do, some have not been solved for me without Reference. In total, it took me 3 Hours to play through, taking every Conversation and Puzzle I offered. From me a Recommendation as long as you don't pay more than €5bn.

For all those who are half-powerful Of the English Language, like grandiose Humor And abtruse story with lots of confusion and like to think about a puzzle for a Few Minutes, with the two Puzzle agent Games are on the right side. If both Parts had been given for 1$, otherwise I would have bought it that way. A really Super Game-too bad that there is probably no Sequel ...:(

The Successor to Puzzle Agent takes on many Of the Strengths of his Predecessor. The Drawing Style remains timeless and beautiful to look at. The Atmosphere is still very dense and supports the exciting Story. This starts virtually seamlessly on the first Part, offers some Twists and is gripping to the End. The only Vulnerability is the Puzzles. Although they are still very good, they are repeated more often and are largely already known from the Predecessor. Without the first Part, the Story is likely to be a bit confusing, but for Players of the first Part, I give a Buy recommendation. 6/10

Not really better or worse than the first Part. The Story is a little more confusing, but in the End there's something of a Solution this Time around. However, this is somewhat unsatisfactory. The Puzzles are no more challenging. Two or three of the Puzzles were not clear to me this Time after the Explanation. The Main Improvement over Part 1 is achievements. Therefore, one More point in the Rating with 6/10. Plus, the Story around Korka is kind of cool. I can't really recommend Part 2, though, because without Part 1 it's not useful and the Puzzles for the cumulative Playing Time of 6 Hours are too weak.

Nice entertaining Game. Like Part 1 played through in a short Time. The "Criminal Case" is quite funny in places and the Agent is already a Number ...:) The Puzzles are totally simple, if you expect something like the heavier Classics Myst or The 7th Guest, you will be disappointed here, who wants to relax with a few Sliding Puzzles and simplest logical and logistical (Distribution) problems, will have fun. The Only negative Point was the "Action" Sequence at the End of the Game, I don't like that at all. But it doesn't matter if you can do it or not, the "Problem" will still be solved---it's just an additional Bonus success that you'll have or don't have. Has no Impact on the Game, though. From this Point of view-> they could have omitted that as well.
