  • Don't get me wrong, the gameplay is decently fun and certainly addictive and the storytelling is great, but man the graphics got hit with the ugly stick. There's some serious artifacting and seemingly unnecessary blurriness going on. (this is on the iphone4 if that makes a difference). Still worth a buy at $5, but be warned.

  • I like the trailer. That sheriff is something, but he's likeable. I think the iPhone version is still non-retina, and that might be why it may not look too sharp. Then again retina is kind of new, and people are only recently updating clients to Retina graphics. It's good that this is on iPhone as well, they'll be able to still get the Puzzle Agent goodness.

  • After waiting months I finally got this game on my iPhone 4. It doesn't support multitasking?? If I have to take a call I have to start over?

  • @akaimizu said: I think the iPhone version is still non-retina, and that might be why it may not look too sharp.

    It's definitely non-retina, which is fine, but there's something else going on, looks like compression artifacts or something. Maybe a concession to get all the voice audio in at a reasonable total download size? Not to harp on it, because like I said, I can totally live with it, but it's not just the difference between retina/non-retina.

  • Will this work on an iPod Touch or is that completely different from an iPhone? I'm new at this whole iPod thing. :confused:

  • Puzzle Agent will work on the iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad. This is not true of all iOS games, but is true for Puzzle Agent. Just check on the itunes store page, it should list which devices and version of the OS you need to be running to make the app work.

    For Puzzle Agent it says: [quote=iTunes]Requirements:Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iPhone OS 2.2.1 or later.[/quote]

  • It's great to finally have this on the iPod! Thanks Telltale! I downloaded it last night and played for a little bit. While I love having it I do have to second (or third?) the "ugly stick" comment about the graphics (and this is even on a non-retina display device). Almost every scene is covered with odd compression artifacts. While it isn't getting in the way of playing, I am slightly disappointed that the choice was made to compress the graphics to the point that they look poor on any generation of iDevice.

    But, still a great game to play and I'm loving the purchase!

  • I also noticed they changed the Room key puzzle, in this version, to be much easier by how they represented it. Though seemingly too easy, not a bad choice considering it being one of the first puzzles in the game. It helps things be more consistent with difficulty progressing further into the game.

    Part of that is because you've already seen the answer, and it's obvious when you look at it again. Like this.

  • Congrats on the iPad-version, it is really neat. There are only two complaints I have:

    1. Some audio files seem to be missing, 2 or 3 lines of dialog don't have voice...
    2. It's probably hard to change this, but the snapping in jigsaw-type puzzles is too generous. I mean as soon as you have 2 or three pieces together and you move them around a bit others will just snap into the correct place by accident taking away all the challenge. It's actually not that bad for me since I hate jigsaws but still, I felt like there's absolutely no challenge to these puzzles...


    A good thing is the screen of the ipad. It just has the perfect size to display everything in enough detail and doesn't make the art look ugly like my 27" screen did. On the large screen, the faux pencil-like effect on the lines just looked terrible and really annoyed me, on the ipad it's actually pretty neat.

    So I would definitely like to see more of agent Tethers, preferably also on the iPad
