Latest reviews for adventure games

The World After

review The World After

First came the pandemic lockdown, followed by this modest little FMV sci-fi mystery whose scenic French village is the one thing you're sure to look back on fondly.


review Papetura

Though playtime is cut understandably short, this lovely hand-designed papercraft adventure unfolds with abundant charm.

The Long Gate

review The Long Gate

Though filled with challenging science-based puzzles, this beautiful but methodical edutainment adventure is a bit too laborious to unlock its full potential.

Scarlet Hood and the Wicked Wood

review Scarlet Hood and the Wicked Wood

What a big review we have of this lovely fairy tale adventure, all the better to fill you in on this charming Groundhog Day-style reimagining of The Wizard of Oz.


review Overboard!

Alterity Experience

review Alterity Experience

This short alien invasion thriller has moments of genuine atmospheric tension, but can't seal the deal with a narrative and characters to match.


review Strangeland

The creators of Primordia aren't clowning around in this beautiful, brilliant but relentlessly bleak abstract nightmare adventure.

Machinika Museum

review Machinika Museum

Though coming up a little short on production value, this sci-fi-tinged The Room-style puzzler exhibits all the other positive qualities as its acclaimed inspirations.

Hitchhiker – A Mystery Game

review Hitchhiker – A Mystery Game

Though it takes a few strange turns, this scenic surrealist road trip adventure gets a thumbs-up for its eclectic characters and stories.


review Repressed

This minimalist puzzler with a surprisingly poignant story conveyed through light and shadow will bring plenty of good feelings to the surface for the short time it lasts.
