If you’ve been entertaining dreams of becoming a secret agent but probably never will be, then you will have to rely on games to live vicariously through the characters you play. Agent A: A puzzle in disguise is a new game that is finally available for Android devices, and not only do you get to play an agent out on a mission, but you get to do it in a 2D/3D environment set in the 60s with all its retro glory.
In the game, you are, surprise surprise, Agent A who has been tasked to bring in a rogue agent called Ruby La Rogue (of course!) who is “a known enemy spy and perilous predator” and who has been targeting agents from your agency as well. What you need to do is to follow her, infiltrate her base camp in some way, discover her plans, and finally bring her to justice. And you do all of them by solving various puzzles, some pretty easy (well, if you’re good at puzzles) and some pretty tricky.
Everything is set in the 60s and so it’s full of stylized retro futuristic settings, contraptions, hidden gizmos, gadgets, weapons, secret clues, etc. The art style is a mix of 2D (the characters) and 3D (the scenery) so the visuals and storylines are pretty interesting. You will be able to explore 15 rooms, 30 inventory based puzzles and 20 puzzle screens. You will need to make mental notes and observations as the game goes along in order to better solve the mystery.
You can download Agent A: A puzzle in disguise from the Google Play Store for $2.99. There are no more in-app purchases needed so you can just play to your heart’s content.
