Adventure Game coverage

Sol705 campaign

Latest reviews for adventure games

7th Sector

review 7th Sector

This grim industrial side-scroller shows more than a spark of creative inspiration, but is bogged down by poor PC controls and some frustrating action elements.

Suli: Fallen Harmony

review Suli: Fallen Harmony

This indie French bird adventure is filled with personality and charm, but its rough edges and puzzle stumbles prevent it from truly soaring.

Down the Rabbit Hole

review Down the Rabbit Hole

There's not much story to unearth, but this charming little VR adventure is worth digging into for an original take on Lewis Carroll's Wonderland.

Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier

review Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier

No monkeying around allowed in this beautiful but gameplay-deficient, unoriginal choice-driven story of one primate species versus another.

Later Alligator

review Later Alligator

It's not very long, but this hilarious reptile romp has enough memorable characters and bite-sized minigames to sink your teeth into and still have enough left over for later.

Heal

review Heal

Though it suffers somewhat from extreme narrative ambiguity, this side-scrolling puzzler is a thoughtful and entertaining exploration of old age and memory loss.

The Longing

preview The Longing

review Falcon City

Player choice is a key part of this entertaining mystery populated by anthropomorphic animals, though its voice acting and polish issues prevent it from reaching its highest potential.
