Tiny Bluetooth speakers are almost literally a dime a dozen these days, but high-quality larger units can be harder to track down. Nyne, in addition to having a 3/4 of a pretty rad name, makes a wide selection of contemporary Bluetooth boombox replacements. And today the "splash-proof" 40W Nyne Adventure is just $55.99 at Best Buy, in stark contrast to the $149 price at the OEM's site. Read More
Alike Studio has finally brought Love You to Bits to Android after an 8-month wait. It is the spiritual successor to the once-popular point and click adventure game Tiny Thief. While Tiny Thief's publisher Rovio has since removed the game from the Play Store, Love You to Bits should not have such an issue thanks to the developers Alike Studio and Pati.io publishing the game themselves.

Anyone familiar with Level 5's Nintendo DS and 3DS puzzle adventure game series Professor Layton should be pretty ecstatic to hear that a full-fledged sequel, Layton’s Mystery Journey, is available on the Play Store today. You'll need to pony up $15.99 in order to download the title, but that's actually a deal when you consider that the 3DS version will cost more than twice as much. Read More
The original Myst games were, somewhat appropriately, lost in time. First released in 1993, Myst debuted just as the point-and-click adventure game genre was dying out in favor of full 3D RPGs and shooters now enabled by more advanced personal computers with CD-ROM drives. Myst tried to bridge the gap: it used the same focus on exploration, puzzle-solving, and narrative that games from Lucasarts and Sierra had relied upon, but added stunning prerendered graphics to make its island mystery more visually compelling. Sequels, spin-offs, and re-releases continued for about ten years, until the tastes of the market shifted once again. Read More
On paper, Little Briar Rose isn't anything particularly exciting. It's a competent side-scrolling adventure title, a rookie effort from developer Elf Games, that retells the Grimm fairy tale of the same name. But the game's visuals, painstakingly crafted to look like an animated stained glass window on every frame, are downright breathtaking. In a sea of pixelated graphics and safe me-too styles, Little Briar Rose is a breath of fresh air. Read More
10 cents can go a long way these days on the Play Store. In recent times, you've been able to grab some cool games and apps for this sum — maybe a bit more or a bit less depending on your country — but the discounts have been heavily skewing toward select regions: UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Australia, Russia, and sometimes the US and Canada and a few other countries joined in on the fun.
This deal though seems to be better in every way. One, it appears to be worldwide: I've checked dozens of countries around the world and they're all showing the game as discounted. Read More
I may have said this before, but point-and-click adventures are my favorite type of game to play on an Android device (if you haven't, check out Gemini Rue). There is quite the selection available in the Play Store, and now you can add one more to that list. Peter Moorhead's Murder has made its way to our mobile platform of choice. Read More
It's not uncommon to see ports of traditional point-and-click adventure games arrive in the Play Store. Thing is, they're usually twenty years old. Lost Horizon from Animation Arts and Deep Silver hit the PC in 2010, making this port much more likely to put your phone or tablet's graphics card to work. Read More
What are you to do in a world overrun by evil physics-beasts? Take the fight to them with your "slingshot-esque gift" of course. The odds are not in your favor, but you are David., the chosen polygon with the rainbow slingshot thing. At least it'll be a good fight. Read More
Whispering Willows is the kind of game we'd like to see more of on any platform. The art style alone shows how much care and attention the designers approached the game with. That it happens to be fun is almost a perk.
The hand-drawn experience centers on Elena, a girl who can project her spirit outside of her body. Controlling her astral projection to solve puzzles forms the crux of the gameplay. Read More
