Unraveling The Mysteries Of AGON
7:32 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

The PC version of AGON: The Mysterious Codex was recently reviewed by Game Chronicles. A compilation of the first three chapters in the AGON saga, The Mysterious Codex chronicles the adventures of Samuel Hunt as he point and clicks his way through a quest to find the Ancient Games of Nations. Game Chronicles gave AGON a score of 7.8 out of 10.

From the review:

The Mysterious Codex puts you in search of people that guard the Ancient Games of Nations that they have held for generations as their protectors. These games are merely board type games that you get to play against the keepers until you win and then move on to the next set of puzzles toward the next game keeper.

You have an inventory page to store items you pick up and some you combine to use for various parts of your adventure. In other adventure games I have played you are lead in silly hunts that have nothing to do with the puzzle at hand or the whole adventure. AGON does not lead you on silly side trips or down paths already too well traveled. A few times during the puzzle hunting and clue finding you will backtrack but this makes perfect sense when it does happen.

The rest of the review can be found at the link listed below.
