Latest reviews for adventure games

LUNA: The Shadow Dust

review LUNA: The Shadow Dust

This stylish puzzler shines brightest in its presentation, though the gameplay doesn't have quite the same lustre as the gorgeous art and sound.

Sally Face

review Sally Face

Behind its traditional point-and-click facade, this one-of-a-kind five-part adventure series is a bold, sometimes baffling, always surprising blend of memorably offbeat adventuring.

Mosaic

review Mosaic

This experimental narrative experience weaves together an unusual, intriguing, sometimes obtuse blend of imagery about escaping the drudgery of life.

Jupiter & Mars

review Jupiter & Mars

Those looking for a relaxing underwater experience are in for a whale of a time, but it's not particularly deep in either story or gameplay.

Discolored

review Discolored

flashback review Druuna: Morbus Gravis

Paolo Eleuteri Serpieri's acclaimed graphic novel is stripped of all its best elements in this disastrously clunky turn-of-the-century action-adventure from Artematica.

Nobodies

review Nobodies

This modest little production manages to make a name for itself with its dark but intriguing focus on concealing a series of covert terrorist assassinations.
