Game Of Thrones - A Telltale Games Series (Episode 1) Review: Point-And-Click Adventure Comes To Westeros

Game Of Thrones - A Telltale Games Series (Episode 1) Review: Point-And-Click Adventure Comes To Westeros

TellTale is getting really good at this. In the developer's short history they've released more than ten games that have adapted the classic point-and-click adventure template to modern pop culture licenses, improving on both the classic formula and their own unique approach. Game of Thrones, like The Walking Dead game first introduced in 2012, is a particularly timely addition. With excitement bubbling over for the fifth season of HBO's adaptation of the fantasy novels, the GoT license is a hot item, and one that TellTale is uniquely qualified to explore.

Out There Review: I've Never Been So Happy To Be So Perilously Close To Death

Out There Review: I've Never Been So Happy To Be So Perilously Close To Death

If there's one thing I can say for Out There, it's that this title does not sugar coat the harsh reality of space. Things go wrong that are totally out of your control, and sometimes that means you're going to die. If that was literally the only thing I had to say, this game would be pretty lame. In fact, there's a lot going on in Out There. This is a sci-fi choose-your-own-adventure game that doesn't fall back on laser blasters and explosions to create tension – it's all about survival. And really, isn't that the ultimate challenge?

Story And Gameplay

It's the mid 22nd century as Out There opens with a quick backstory.

[New Game] Classic 90's Point-And-Click Adventure Game Simon The Sorcerer Magically Appears On Android

[New Game] Classic 90's Point-And-Click Adventure Game Simon The Sorcerer Magically Appears On Android

The year was 1993. A young President Clinton was embarking on what was sure to be a scandal-free presidency, Whitney Houston was topping the charts with nothing but fame and fortune in front of her, and Simon the Sorcerer was released on Amiga and MS-DOS. You could say this game has had more lingering appeal than a lot of things from 1993, and now it's available on Android in celebration of its 20th anniversary.

This title is your basic point-and-click adventure game with a healthy dose of puzzles. Simon the Sorcerer earns its place in history not from an innovative style of gameplay, but with clever content and inside jokes.
