Animated in a stylish, 60s-influenced manner, Agent A sees its titular agent pursue deadly femme fatale Ruby La Rouge to her secret hideaway. The game is for phones and tablets, and comes from Yak & co. It is the winner of the PAX Aus Indie Showcase 2015.
Agent A is a spy-themed puzzle game, driven by inventory and environment interaction. La Rouge has been dispatching A’s fellow agents, and he must use his logic to infiltrate her hideout and capture her. The puzzles are designed to reward careful observation and thought, and to make sure the player should never have to just test things out until something works: they have to keep track of their surroundings like a talented agent.
The game is comprised of 15 rooms for exploration, 30 inventory-based puzzles, and 20 puzzle screens. The stylized animation combines 2- and 3-dimensional designs, and is created by Mark White, who makes up Yak & co alongside coder Jason Rawlings. Between them the pair have over 25 years of industry experience, and previously spent five years working together at Millipede.
Agent A is available for iOS 7.0 or later on iPhone, iPad, and iTouch. It’s downloadable for $2.99 from the App Store. For more information check out the game’s website, or Yak & co’s website, Facebook, or Twitter.
