Jet Set Radio is a port of a critically acclaimed Sega Dreamcast title from the turn of the century. The title was one of the first to popularize cel-shaded graphics, without which we wouldn’t have Club Penguin to usher the youngest among us into the world of Flash-based timewasters.

When I was a kid I remember fads used to be awesome. Yo-yos, Pokémon cards, mullet haircuts, they all had their own charm. These days, fads seem to largely suck and mainly involve wasting money, for example micro-transactions, 4 Pics 1 Word, Justin Bieber, and what I like to scientifically refer to as drag-and-drop pseudo-RTS games, the latest plague spreading across the App Store like cancer over a cigar-smoker’s lung. The first one I noticed was Borderlands Legends, which was about as legendary as a trip to a public toilet during an outbreak of dysentery. Since then they have been cropping up left, right and center.

Telltales Games has an impressive iOS catalog that includes a number of classic point and click franchises like Sam and Max and Monkey Island, so I knew I was in for a treat when Puzzle Agent popped up in my inbox. In it, you assume the role of Nelson Tethers, the FBI’s top man in the illustrious and totally not made up Department of Puzzle Research. Sent to uncover the source of mysterious events at the Scoggins Eraser Company, Tethers is confronted with odd, secretive townsfolk, gnomes, and yes, puzzles.
