Top 25 Best Point-and-Click Adventure Games on Android
If you’re unfamiliar with the origins of the point-and-click adventure genre, we should probably break things down for you.
The point-and-click part harks back to the PC origins of the genre, where mouse control was the order of the day. In a point-and-click adventure, you literally point your mouse and click through largely static scenes to interact with puzzles.
And of course, the “adventure” part highlights the genre’s love of strong storytelling and fantasy. When you play point-and-click fortune telling, you can expect a thrilling story and a journey into the unknown.
The point-and-click genre hit the scene in the early 90s, with the imperious LucasArts leading the charge through greats like The Secret of Monkey Island.
