MySims Agents is a mystery-solving adventure game for the Nintendo DS and Wii, in which you must guide agents in an effort to stop the sinister plans of Morcubus.[4] This addition to the MySims franchise was released on September 29, 2009.

Gameplay[edit]

In MySims Agents you take on the role of a special agent hired to foil the sinister plans of Morcubus. By recruiting different MySims, each with their own special characteristics, you can build up their very own crime-busting dream team. From tracking footprints and using forensics to picking locks, hacking into computers, following leads and collecting clues, you must rely on their wits, skills and trusty gadgets to piece together the clues to solve the mystery. Jump aboard the jet to reach an ancient temple, a spooky mansion or an icy mountaintop chalet in search of clues that lead you closer to the sinister Morcubus. Return from the adventure with cool treasures that you can use to construct and customize their headquarters and make it your own.
