Description official description

You take the role of Mark Hopper, an ordinary teenager who gets hired by the RGB intelligence (he was selected by a fortune teller) to solve the mystery of gold disappearing from the Mega Bank. But first you're sent to the RGB training camp where you'll have to pass the three trials!

Teenagent is a humorous point-and-click adventure, originally available as shareware, but the DOS version was later re-released as freeware. You control Mark Hopper with a mouse - click on where you want him to go, left-click on objects and people to look at them, and right-click on them to interact with them. By moving the cursor to the top of the screen, you bring up your inventory.

(Note: the game isn't connected in any way to the 1991 movie Teen Agent.)

Now you see it (gold), now you don't

The Good
The RGB is used to handling strange cases, but their latest one has them baffled for six months. Gold bullion has been mysteriously disappearing at the bank. The organization feels that since they handle strange cases, they feel that they would use strange means. They hire a fortune teller to do the honor of hiring someone for the investigation. She chooses Mark Hopper, a homeboy who wants to be repaid with the rank of official secret agent as well as choosing any woman he wants.

Teenagent is an adventure game which has a very easy-to-use interface. A part of the screen is not cluttered with the commands or inventory like in most games. All the actions fills up the entire screen, and you only have to click one mouse button to do all the actions. Basically the left button allows you to look at things, while the right button allows you to talk to people, pick up stuff, and walk to another screen. It is an intelligent game like, for example, King's Quest VII. Moving the mouse toward the top of the screen brings up the inventory. Most of the items that you picked up are colorful and well designed, and some items will have nice animations. Animations are a feature missing from many LucasArts games.

There is a lot of humor in the game, and Teenagent is guaranteed to make your laugh at certain points. At the start of the game, for example, Mark has to perform at a training camp to prove that he is worthy of being a RGB secret agent. He is given three tasks which involve humiliating his instructor, and the tasks range from getting out of a jail cell to playing hide 'n' seek. Later on in the game, Mark falls in love with Anne, who happens to work for the RGB. There are a few scenes where I nearly laughed my head off.

The graphics in the game come as close to LucasArts games as it can. Although the characters are a bit blocky, I hardly noticed it because I was still figuring out what to do next. The puzzles are not too hard, and some of them can be solved in five minutes. The best thing is if you manage to solve them, you are treated to some more humor. The best puzzle for me is near the end of the game where you have to break into a mansion.

The music in Teenagent have a beat to them, and you often find yourself tapping your feet to it or humming the melody. There is some cool music in the game, mainly those used in the later sections of the game. The sound effects are quite nice to listen to, since they are similar to those used in many LucasArts games.

The Bad
This game is too short and can be completed in a day.

The Bottom Line
Teenagent is a humorous third-person adventure game in which you play a teenager investigating the strange disappearance of gold bullion. The game is similar to LucasArts games with its sound and humor. The only difference is that the screen is not cluttered with commands or inventory, and animations are added to some items you pick up along the way. It was originally released as shareware, but you can get it for free from the internet.
