Latest reviews for adventure games

A Fisherman’s Tale

review A Fisherman’s Tale

This charming VR exclusive shines like a beacon of originality with its clever worlds-within-worlds premise and associated lighthouse puzzles.

Into A Dream

Pamali: Indonesian Folklore Horror

The Dreamcatcher

review The Dreamcatcher

Our first-hand analysis reveals a beautiful if overly abstract exploration of the subconscious that presents more questions than gameplay.

Jessika

review Jessika

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. Other popular names for this genre are “graphic adventure” or “point and click adventure”, but these represent only part of a much broader, diverse range of games.
