Adventure games for Android


By now we've all figured out the formula to making a hit mobile game. Sure games like Candy Crush and Angry Birds are fun ...for awhile. However, in all honesty, I was getting a little bored. That's when I decided to go on an adventure by trying something different than the average strategy-puzzle game...

Modojo is here with a list of adventure titles out there on the Google Play Store. Whether you like more visceral adventures or are content to go through the motions, these picks should make for some good weekend plays.

1. The Silent Age

The Silent Age is a luscious throwback that explores 1972, the Cold War, and the change that would eventually sweep everyone up in its cold embrace. You play Joe, a janitor who's tired of his tedious life. When a dying man comes to visit him one night, he receives a device that allows him to travel through time. Joe travels to the future to find that in 40 years, humanity will be extinct. It's up to Joe (and you) to figure out how to put a stop to this heinous prophecy, and it's a thrilling ride every step of the way.

2. Broken Sword: Director's Cut

The Broken Sword series is classic, and you can take the plunge by trying out the very first installement here with the Broken Sword: Director's Cut. Follow patent lawyer turned adventure George Stobbart, who becomes entangled in a world of intrigue and conspiracy while traveling through Paris. Be careful, though. When you finish this adventure you may just want to finish all the rest, too.

3. Gemini Rue

Gemini Rue is a popular adventure game amongst PC gamers already, and Wadjet Eye Games' neo-noir thriller takes everything exciting about the world of cyberpunk and weaves a gorgeous tale of an amnesiac named Delta Six who's trapped inside a mental institution. Fans of Beneath A Steel Sky will want to keep their eyes on this one, as it sports excellent writing, a gripping narrative, and a throwback aesthetic that has to be seen to be appreciated.
