Latest reviews for adventure games

Genesis Noir

review Genesis Noir

This experimental, noir-themed art installation exploring life's big questions begins with a bang but loses momentum before the end.


review Mundaun

With its striking pencil sketch aesthetic and effective blend of genre elements, this chilling mountain horror adventure reaches consistently impressive heights.

Ryte: The Eye of Atlantis

It gets a few things wrong, but otherwise this entertaining, puzzle-filled visit to the Greek island is well worth a look for VR gamers.

The Darkside Detective: A Fumble in the Dark

review The Darkside Detective: A Fumble in the Dark

You're sure to find the second season of micro-adventures with McQueen and Dooley is handled just as expertly and hilariously as the first.

The Dark Side of the Moon

review The Dark Side of the Moon

Its cheesy B movie fun is a highlight, but there's very little gameplay or challenge to tide you over in this short live-action sci-fi thriller.

Internet Court

review Internet Court

Like Ace Attorney meets Zoom, this delightfully homemade legal adventure riffs on both online culture and awkward video conferencing.


review Mutropolis

There's plenty of fun to unearth in this beautifully hand-painted archeological sci-fi adventure set three thousand years in the future.

Paradise Lost

review Paradise Lost

There's little gameplay but plenty of compelling atmosphere to be found this alternate-history exploratory adventure set within a grand underground Nazi installation.

Tiny Room Stories: Town Mystery

review Tiny Room Stories: Town Mystery

The narrative goes to some odd places, but this isometric puzzler packs a big-time challenge into its many miniature village locations.

You'd be crazy to pass up this boldly designed, delightfully unique nature sim with a surprisingly compelling story to crack at the center of it all.
