Latest reviews for adventure games

The Hand of Glory

review The Hand of Glory

Though its reach slightly exceeds its grasp, this Broken Sword-style comedic mystery can bask in a job largely well done.

Quarantine Diary

review Quarantine Diary

Not even a pandemic can sideline the intrepid British sleuth from rolling through another entertaining mystery in scenic Sweden.

Oniria Crimes

review Oniria Crimes

Apart from a few objections, this voxel-based mystery adventure should be a dream come true for would-be detectives who enjoy deep, intriguing worlds to explore.

Call of the Sea

review Call of the Sea

Though its story offers few surprises, this gorgeous, puzzle-filled island adventure with a Lovecraftian influence proves to be highly alluring.

An Interesting Journey of Monsieur PAF

review An Interesting Journey of Monsieur PAF

This isometric puzzler provides plenty of time-wasting fun, but only if you're able to power through its poorly implemented controls.

Enypnion

review Enypnion

Sam & Max Save the World – Remastered

It doesn't reproduce the same culture shock of the original, but the Freelance Police look, sound, and play better than ever in this modern makeover of their first episodic season.

Nine Witches: Family Disruption

review Nine Witches: Family Disruption

Though it's relatively easy, this charming alliance of retro-styled presentation and comedic supernatural WWII thriller will ultimately win you over with its zany plot and characters.
