Latest reviews for adventure games

LOVE – A Puzzle Box Filled with Stories

review LOVE – A Puzzle Box Filled with Stories

Like a Rubik's Cube of life, this unique wordless puzzler has lots to be smitten with, though it's not quite as user-friendly as it could be at times.

Demo round-up from The Big Adventure Event

feature Demo round-up from The Big Adventure Event

The genre is taking over Steam until January 25th, with loads of limited-time demos to check out first-hand.

Orwell’s Animal Farm

review Orwell’s Animal Farm

More management sim than adventure, this cropped-down narrative-driven adaptation effectively explores the sociopolitical themes of the 1945 classic novel.

Krabat and the Secret of the Sorbian King

review Krabat and the Secret of the Sorbian King

Don't overlook this hidden gem, a classic-styled point-and-click adventure blending fictional fun with exploration of a rarely explored culture.

The Hand of Glory

review The Hand of Glory

Though its reach slightly exceeds its grasp, this Broken Sword-style comedic mystery can bask in a job largely well done.

Quarantine Diary

review Quarantine Diary

Not even a pandemic can sideline the intrepid British sleuth from rolling through another entertaining mystery in scenic Sweden.

Oniria Crimes

review Oniria Crimes

Apart from a few objections, this voxel-based mystery adventure should be a dream come true for would-be detectives who enjoy deep, intriguing worlds to explore.

Call of the Sea

review Call of the Sea

Though its story offers few surprises, this gorgeous, puzzle-filled island adventure with a Lovecraftian influence proves to be highly alluring.

An Interesting Journey of Monsieur PAF

review An Interesting Journey of Monsieur PAF

This isometric puzzler provides plenty of time-wasting fun, but only if you're able to power through its poorly implemented controls.

Enypnion

review Enypnion

It may be too short to leave a lasting impression, but this lovely dark fantasy adventure provides a fun little break from reality to fill a couple hours.
