Agent A Review - I Spy A Puzzle In Disguise
“A suave secret agent adventure game. Your mission (should you choose to accept) is to infiltrate enemy spy Ruby La Rouge’s secret hideaway and put a stop to her evil plans!”
Today I played through Yak & Co’s demo chapter for Agent A, which is scheduled or release on all major platforms, early 2019.
You take the role of “Agent A” a top secret agent with a mission to infiltrate enemy spy Ruby LaRouge’s safehouse and find a way to foil her evil plans. Exploring a stylish retro-themed world full of high‐tech gadgets and equipment, you must solve tricky logic‐based puzzles and search for clues to aid your mission during this epic game of cat and mouse!
I really enjoy playing a good point and click adventure game and this title was no exception, I found the blend a first‐person view with 2d and 3d artwork/animation worked quite well to give this game its own unique style and appearance. The sound effects and soundtrack for the game are excellent and do a great job at creating that old‐school golden era Pink Panther or Get Smart vibe.
The game itself is quite fun to play and I look forward to playing through the rest of the chapters when they release across multiple platforms.
However, even though I enjoyed solving the puzzles, I found them to be less challenging than I had hoped and managed to finish the demo in around 20 minutes on my first playthrough. The gameplay is relatively simplistic making it easy to explore the world with just the click of a button. Agent A can be a fun experience for players of all ages, even your computer illiterate grandparents would have fun playing.
Chapters 1‐4 have been available on the Apple Store and Google Play for a while now and even won the 2016 AGDA Game of The Year award. The full game including the fifth and final chapter will be released and available in early 2019 across other platforms including Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
My overall impression of the game is positive, I had a lot of fun playing it and solving the quirky puzzles that the demo had to offer.
The artwork and animation combined with the sounds and music really do blend together to create a truly unique and surprisingly immersive experience, and I would definitely recommend this game to anyone who likes a good brain teaser!
I rate this demo at 8 and a half out of 10. I wish the demo went a little longer and I will definitely be playing the next chapters soon. You can find out more about the game here.
Thanks for reading.
