I need info about this game.

The AGON adventure series is made up of several chapters.

How many, and which, chapters are included in this release? thanks

Remember that you can move through 360 degrees by moving the small cursor; turn round, go back to the station and go through the door - then you are on your own. You might also try the 'easy' option. The game is a bit reminiscent of Syberia, but the tasks seem to be more involved and you need to keep your own notes it seems, which might be a bit of a chore.

I played about half way through the demo. In ‘Options’ you can change the speed in which you look around. Since I tend to get dizzy, I changed it to Slow. Good move on my part as it was just the right speed. You also have the option of difficulty. I am usually not very good at Adventures so I changed it to Easy.
The graphics are wonderful and the music was ok, I tend to turn the music down in a game so what I heard was nice. There is no option to change the cursor but that is ok as I had no problems. It took me a while to figure out how to get out of a magnified scene. Sometimes it was hard to see the larger ‘back’ cursor as it only appeared at the very bottom of the window and was dark. It also took me a while to figure out that to change my direction. I had to press and hold the left button on the mouse, then move the cursor in the direction I wanted to go. I did not get very far in the game before being stuck and leaving. I truly think this is a game that needs a walkthrough. There is a Strategy Guide available, but it is 6.99.

I have no idea how long the game is, but I do know there are 12 locations that have to be visited. In my 35 minutes, I only got to my first destination and into the Railroad Ticket Masters office and room, which is not very far.

I know there are those who will love this game, but I just do not have the patience for them. I will say if there was a walkthrough I would consider buying just for the wonderful graphics.

Wow! This just reminds me that Private Moon never did finish the Agon story.
I remember buying these online and thinking how expensive they were! I think this was before I found Big Fish.

I got to the map, read all the letters and can't get any further. There are no indications what to do next, clicking on the map point in Lapland doesn't do anything either.

How do I continue?

I thought this game had excellent graphics and great music, though I had a little problems getting used to the cursor. I found myself getting stuck, quite a few times. I have to admit it was a nice game, I know many fishies may appreciate this game as for me, I was a little annoyed. I didn't noticed a walktrough as patnsky mentioned. For those fishies that are having a great time....enjoy and as always, Happy Gaming!! Take Care, Terry

Still hard to negotiate through. Didn't like the first one and I don't like this one either. Im just glad I didn't waste any money on it this time.

I have downloaded the trial and spent 35mins trying to get into the office - the cursor won't turn around won't do anything but go to the water tower - help

I'm in the train station where the guy is past our on the bed and I've found the telegraph machine with the strip still in it, what do I do with it? I can slide the paper at the top across with my hand but it's just lines and dots. Am I supposed to type something? Help Please

Sorry, but I am stuck at the water tower too and can't get ANYWHERE. No larger arrow ever appears, I try clicking both mouse buttons with no results...and what do I do with the newspaper or the 'stone' that are in my inventory? I am very confused.

dabadgy, go back into the house and go by the stove, on your left thee is wood, pick one up and open the stove and put the wood into the stove and the newspaper, then light them with the matches from your inventory. Have you found the valve on top of the water tower yet? Also there is a valve on the outside of the house, I don't know what it's for yet. There are also 3 plates on the wall in the house with a stool unser them, you can move the stool over both ways and look at all 3 plates. The fall left one you can turn left or right. I don't know what they're for yet. I also can't open the back door.I hope this helps. I'm pretty sure we don't do all that much outside on the train tracks yet.

There are hints for London Scene and Lapland to Madagascar episodes at the Universal Hint place. Google for it or PM me for the link.

I prefer 1st person adventures like this, but found London Scene kind of uninteresting. I will try this one and see if I like it better.
