Latest reviews for adventure games

A Secretive World Called Neyyah

interview A Secretive World Called Neyyah

A conversation with Aaron Gwynaire on the upcoming first-person point-and-click adventure game from the solo developer.

Gerda: A Flame in Winter Hands-on

preview Gerda: A Flame in Winter Hands-on

A sneak peek at an upcoming Nordic adventure with a thought-provoking story, enchanting graphics, and some unusually creative gameplay.

Wanderer

review Wanderer

Time is on your side in this clever and alluring sci-fi-VR puzzler, whose chief drawback is frequent backtracking.

Leprechaun Shadow

review Leprechaun Shadow

The charmingly noir-tinged third Sir Typhil adventure is the biggest so far, though it comes up short whenever it veers too far into RPG territory.

Highly Likely

review Highly Likely

It's pretty much certain that you'll find this gorgeous but gameplay-deprived side-scroller a tedious slog with your hand held the entire way (except when you need it).

Crowns and Pawns: Kingdom of Deceit

review Crowns and Pawns: Kingdom of Deceit

Its thoughtful story, well-written dialog and voice acting, beautiful graphics and sound make this game a must-play for adventure game fans.

NeonLore

review NeonLore

Though missing the mark in terms of consistent quality, this game's thesis does come through, and NeonLore will undoubtedly appeal to cyberpunk fans.

The Works of Mercy

review The Works of Mercy

This short, surreal psychological thriller is D.O.A. thanks to its fatally flawed story and lack of gameplay depth.

The Adventures of the Black Hawk

game announcement The Adventures of the Black Hawk

An adventure game clearly inspired by the classic adventures of LucasArts of the 90s, will this instantly take you back 30 years?

Catsperience

review Catsperience

Those expecting to experience the story through the perspective of a cat will find that its tame reality ends up being more about codes and combinations.

Half Past Fate

review Half Past Fate

Now's the perfect time to treat yourself to a pair of heartwarming character-driven rom-com adventures, the first of which is still blissfully pre-pandemic.

The Shattering

review The Shattering

Although light on puzzles and other challenges, this is a gripping story and worthwhile experience, even if it's an emotionally difficult one.

Bloodshore

review Bloodshore

This interactive battle-royale action movie stays true to its core, unfortunately the underwhelming narrative and shallow characters make its core crumble.

Lost at Sea

review Lost at Sea

It takes on a bold concept, and through well-designed puzzles provides a memorable experience. If only for the parts that feel underdeveloped, the game could have been unforgettable.
