I'm loving the game so far!
The only nitpick are the rendering glitches and the fact that the framerate is rather low, even at 800x600.

I think there are two things here. One is the animation style, which is not very fluent, but that's OK. That's part of the art style. The other is that, at least on my PC, the framerate is unbearably low at the default resolution, let alone my native resolution of 1680x1050. Think the mouse moving only once per second or so. That's uncontrollable if you need to drag puzzle pieces and such.

There must be something, because I ran S&M (season 1&2) and ToMI at 1680x1050 after setting graphics to 3, and they were smoother than Puzzle Agent is at 800x600. So I'm 100% sure there is something fancy going on in the graphics department that my (admittedly outdated, but officially conforming to the system requirements) graphics card can't pull off.
