Jenny LeClue – Detectivú

review Jenny LeClue – Detectivú

With this charming, stylish side-scroller, the first of hopefully many more adventures for an intrepid young heroine is in the books, brilliantly blending murder mystery and character drama.

Angelo and Deemon: One Hell of a Quest

review Angelo and Deemon: One Hell of a Quest

This slick-looking point-and-click adventure through the underworld ends up being one heck of a disappointment due to its awful translation, poorly-clued puzzles and failed attempts at humour.

Yuppie Psycho

review Yuppie Psycho

This blend of survival horror, adventure, modern day office satire and retro-style visuals is just so crazy that it not only works, it does so brilliantly.

Firewood

review Firewood

Silver Chains

review Silver Chains

Despite its slick production values, where this first-person horror adventure breaks down is that it’s just not very scary or interactive enough to maintain suspense.

Lightstep Chronicles

review Lightstep Chronicles

This text-driven sci-fi adventure offers limited mobility but is brought to life with a highly cinematic presentation and an engaging story about sentient AIs in conflict.

What are (point and click) adventure games?

Adventure games are all about stories, exploring worlds and solving puzzles. Adventure games focus on puzzle solving within a narrative framework, generally with few or no action elements.

Only half of the story is interesting, and even that is too puzzle-centric.
