You don’t HD 3D graphics to have a great looking game and Puzzle Agent 2 proves it. The graphics are a cool 2D style which fits the game perfectly.

It’s a great change to the endless horrible 3D style games littering the App Store.

Puzzle Agent 2 is definitely worth the download. Shooters are fun but there is nothing better than a good challenging puzzler.
