Teen Agent (DOS)

It's available many places but I got it free from gog.com (start an account and you should find it available to download straight away, along with a few others - some of which I'll be mentioning on this blog in the near future), housed in its own DOSBox runtime and working fine on Windows 7:  Teen Agent.  


I remember playing this game many years ago, and it's still a nice little adventure game.  I didn't really find a lot of the puzzles all that logical to be honest and would certainly never have completed it without resorting to finding hints online, but it's a decent enough storyline, pretty humorous and features some lovely pixel graphics and detailed animation.  The chip tunes are done well too although as with most chip music, it has the capacity to drive you nuts after a while!


While I wouldn't say that Teen Agent is a classic, it's certainly a game that's well worth playing if you're a fan of retro adventure games.  


Teen Agent was first released as shareware by Polish developers Metropolis Software House in 1995 and was released for Amiga and DOS.
