I love games.
- Board games
- Card games
- Single player
My iPhone alone has nearly 100 games on it.
The most expensive app I have is The Secret of Monkey Island.
The Monkey Island games are part of a genre called “Adventure Games”. Specifically, Point n’ Click.
Loved it on the PC, love it on the iPhone.
Now to the point. Where can you get information on other Adventure Games? Well there’s and excellent site specifically for adventure lovers. Adventure Gamers.
I’ve spent a chunk of the last few days looking over this site. It does appear to tick all the boxes. Not only is the content pertinent and up to date but the layout and design is intuitive.
There are the usual reviews of both old and new releases, but also features, blogs, even some excellent tip and walkthrough sections. There is just a huge amount if information on this site.
The search feature is one to envy, not very surprising as it’s powered by Google, but the context is good. Split into three sections: tips, ads, reviews. Searching for “Monkey Island” gave me exactly what I expected.
A new Feature just launched this Autumn is Following Freeware. There is a stunning number of programmers and program houses that release at least some of their out entirely without charge. This monthly feature gives short reviews of such games and tells you where you can get them. Concentrating on the look, atmosphere an game play this is the place to get ideas on whether the games will suit you. On the Adventure Gamers site click “Freeware” and then look for the “Following Freeware:” entries.
For us iPhone user they’ve at least had a look and analyse some of the games available, and even some of the shortcomings of the platform. Have a look here for more details.
Have a wander – link is in my blog roll.
Disclosure: I do like Adventure games and so am biased. Additionally, I am friends with one of the sites moderators/contributors.
