  1. AGON is a lovely game, beautifully constructed, refreshingly different from the usual adventure title. The makers have done everything right. Interface and other technical features are flawless and couldn't be better. Graphics are colorful and clear, if not outstanding. Voice acting and ambient sounds are exemplary. Most importantly, the essential idea of a journey of discovery rewarded episodically by a fascinating new board game leads this reviewer to an enthusiastic Gold Star.

    Resurrecting a long-dead style of gameplay--the kind requiring pen and paper as well as a mouse and keyboard--AGON creates a surprisingly tense, engaging mystery about an ancient boardgame once played all over the world. [Oct. 2006, p.72]
  3. If you loved "Myst," you will love this. Prepare to get addicted.
  4. A very enjoyable adventure release, one of the best in the past few years.
  5. A well-crafted and fun adventure game. It takes a bit of work to get through some of the puzzles but is interesting as well as a challenge.
  6. But it still offers a competent and entertaining adventure that will keep games busy at least for a short while. At least if you buy the boxed copy you know where to go to find the new episodes.
