PUZZLE AGENT 2 HD picks up where Puzzle Agent left off with FBI Agent Nelson Tethers still pondering the mysteries of Scoggins, Minnesota. As he delves into the disappearance of factory foreman Isaac Davner, he feels that the town is working against him, though few will say so outright. The game is a curious combination of a cartoon and puzzles, some of which are more integral to the story than others. Although there aren't any truly scary things, there is a general sense of eeriness that makes things feel not quite right as you play. The game has a lot of humor mixed in with the creepiness, and it is a lot of fun to see how the story unfolds. The artwork by Graham Annable (based on his Grickle comics) is fun and quirky, and the voice-acting is excellent.

However, although the game is probably best for teens and up, many of the puzzles are not terribly difficult. Some involve math, while others require either logic or trial and error. It is fun to play, but may be a bit short for the price, as there is little replay value once you've solved all the puzzles.
