Do you like a good mystery? Then perhaps you ought to take on the role of Joe the janitor in the newly released The Silent Age. It's a point-and-click adventure where one lowly 70's janitor is tasked with finding out why everyone in the future is dead. Of course, Joe's future is our present. Yep, we're all dead.

Joe has a handy time travel device he was gifted by a dying man.

Finding Teddy is the kind of game that could entice me away from console gaming. I know, I know, the new visuals just revealed at E3 are mind-blowing, but I've long passed the point where graphics were the reason I turned to consoles when it came time to whip out a game. What draws me towards consoles is the level of immersion that can be found in titles with bigger budgets and more talented teams.

Surprisingly, the licensed LEGO Star Wars PC and console games (and most of the subsequent Indiana Jones/Batman/Harry Potter/et cetera games) turned out to be pretty good. They're tight, enjoyable adventure games with interesting construction mechanics, and humor suitable to both kids and adults. Though The LEGO Group has released more than a dozen Android titles already, their first tie-in game is LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles, available now as a free download.

For those of you who have never met Larry Laffer before, he's a 40 year-old virgin "still untouched by human hands," as the game puts it.

Sometimes, the modern world is just too much, you know? Video recording glasses and self-aware phones. It makes you miss the old days where when someone made you upset, you didn't bicker with them on Twitter. You just ran them through with your sword. That's the escapist fantasy that DevilDark: The Fallen Kingdom offers. The game is set in a medieval time when monsters roam the land and you have to gut them to win loot.

Partnered with Steve Jackson, Tin Man Games has brought another Fighting Fantasy title to the digital age with House of Hell. For the uninitiated, Fighting Fantasy is a series of interactive "gamebooks" by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone which began publication in the early 80's. The books each contain their own fantasy adventure, the outcome of which is completely dependent on the reader's choices.

Staying true to the 1980's aesthetic of the original printed works, Tin Man's adaptation of House of Hell has the option to turn off its various visual enhancements to "make the gamebook look like it came off the printing press in the 80s." Many players will want to keep them on though – the visual overlays and colored illustrations add a new dimension to the experience, and are wonderfully executed.

The middle class is disappearing. The national debt is big enough to fill Cowboys Stadium with hundred dollar bills. Here Comes Honey Boo Boo gets 2.5 million viewers an episode. The future of America looks bleak, folks - so let's celebrate it in point-and-click form. The Great Fusion is an old-school point-and-click adventure in the vein of Leisure Suit Larry, Monkey Island et al. It paints a worrisome picture of the year 2022, when the United States has collapsed and hope for the future is lost.

Horror and adventure are a surprisingly potent combination for gaming - just ask anyone who's played TellTale's series based on the Walking Dead series. The niche is a little barren on Android, but has gotten a little less so with the release of Killer Escape. In this game you're a luckless protagonist captured by a serial killer, and you've got to use your wits to escape via a series of puzzles and exploring your dank surroundings.
