Latest reviews for adventure games


review NUTS

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.

Chronicle of Innsmouth: Mountains of Madness

review Chronicle of Innsmouth: Mountains of Madness

Though its production values are much higher, this Lovecraftian murder mystery isn't quite as fleshed out as its less ambitious predecessor.


review Mørkredd

Though this atmospheric physics puzzler centered around light and shadow can be enjoyed solo, it shines brightest when played with a partner in two-player co-op.


review Devotion

Those who relish a more personal, dread-filled type of horror than abject terror will feel great affection for Red Candle's long-awaited follow-up to Detention.

Lost Words: Beyond the Page

review Lost Words: Beyond the Page

This dual-world side-scroller has lovely pictures and a thoughtfully written story, though you won't find much gameplay complexity or challenge here.

Inspector Waffles

review Inspector Waffles

This amusing retro-styled investigative adventure pops up to the top of the ever-expanding catalogue of anthropomorphic animal mysteries.

review Voyage

It's short and easy whether played solo or co-op, but this painterly side-scroller is all about the lovely, pleasant journey rather than the destination.

Alien Function

review Alien Function

The Sir Typhil fantasy series goes to space, where it works surprisingly well in this enjoyable point-and-click romp that's suitable for newcomers and existing fans alike.

The Room 4: Old Sins

review The Room 4: Old Sins

Although guilty of a few repeat tasks, Fireproof has once again delivered an engaging puzzle experience that largely renders other complaints null and void.

GREYHAT – A Digital Detective Adventure

review GREYHAT – A Digital Detective Adventure

The difference in quality between storytelling and gameplay is like black and white, leaving this fun but uneven indie hacking adventure sitting somewhere in the middle.

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.
