Latest reviews for adventure games

Omno

review Omno

Gamers everywhere should give this gorgeous 3D platforming adventure a chance, as it frequently soars above many of its contemporaries.

The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles

review The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles

The verdict is in, and this 19th century two-games-in-one prequel more than does justice to its beloved predecessors.

Westmark Manor

review Westmark Manor

Its haunting gothic setting is suitably Lovecraftian, but this top-down survival horror messes with the formula with some excessively cumbersome mechanics.

Vile Matter

review Vile Matter

This very short escape-room horror adventure isn't vile matter so much as it is a mediocre diversion that means little more than an hour or so of puzzling.

Last Stop

review Last Stop

There isn't much challenge to halt progress, but the new game from the creators of Virginia will captivate you with its three dramatic, slickly produced stories.

Døm Rusalok

review Døm Rusalok

This post-Soviet side-scrolling adventure provides a compelling pixel art horror ambience, though some punishing technical issues are unearthed along the way.

Down in Bermuda

review Down in Bermuda

It's easy to lose oneself for a couple hours in this beautifully charming little isometric puzzler from the creators of Agent A.

Twelve Minutes

review Twelve Minutes

This looping top-down murder mystery provides plenty of compelling possibilities, though the good times begin to diminish as the repetition increases.

Critters for Sale

review Critters for Sale

This unique anthology of retro-styled 1-bit adventures pays off with an abundance of nightmare weirdness and deeply unsettling ambience.
