I don’t know about you boys and girls, but I have always been a sucker for puzzle games. As a matter of fact, I’ve been enjoying puzzle games for as long as I can remember. However, I became a hardcore fan of puzzle games once I got a chance to play Tetris on the very first Gameboy console in the early 90s.

game boy 90s

I got hooked up on the original game boy as a kid once I get a chance to play “Tetris” for the very first time (which in my case was in the early 90s).


So naturally, it didn’t take all that long before I found my way to some jigsaw puzzles for adults. I mean, nowadays you can play puzzle games on the fly on your smartphone, tablet, Switch or laptop. In other words, there’s plenty of puzzle games and options for how, when, and where you want to play them.

simon the sorcerer the dragon

I got so many awesome childhood memories from Adventure Soft’s epic point-and-click adventure games “Simon the sorcerer” 1 and 2 (I love the first two “Simon” games to bits!).

On a personal level though, I love point-and-click adventure/puzzle games the most. In my case, everything started off on that front with Adventure Soft’s cult classic point-and-click adventure game “Simon the sorcerer” from 1993 (I have so many childhood memories from “Simon 1 and 2 that I probably could do a whole article about those two games alone).

simon the sorcerer 1

The first time that I played through “Simon 1” I didn’t even have an audio card, instead, everything was 100% done via my computer’s built-in midi-speaker.

You know, now that I think about it, I didn’t even have a soundcard in my first computer when I played “Simon the sorcerer 1”, nope, instead all the sound and music was in 100% midi via a built-in midi speaker in my computer (I’m pretty sure that the most of you who are reading this article are wayyyy too young to even know any of this stuff).

simon the sorcerer 2

“Simon the sorcerer 2” is with no doubt THE mest “Simon” game to date, and it’s also one of the very best adventure games ever made in my opinion.

Truth be told, I didn’t get my very first soundcard before Creative released their first soundcard in the mid-90s (well, in Sweden at least). So it wasn’t until “Simon the sorcerer 2“ launched in 1995 that I got a chance to play my first point-and-click adventure/puzzle game with full sound effects and music.

discworld the hot warrior babe

“Discworld” 1, 2, and “Discworld Noir” kept me entertained and occupied for many, many hours throughout the 90s and early 2000s.

Well, I think you get the idea, and after the “Simon” games I played tons of other adventure/puzzle games over the years (some of my all-time favorite adventure/puzzle games include titles such as “Discworld”, “Myst”, “Grim Fandango”, “Blade Runner”, “Sam & Max”, “Day of the tentacle” and the whole “Monkey Island” series).

So with that said, I hope that you will find some adventure/puzzle games that will suit your taste and on your preferred format. A free pro-tip would be to check out reviews and grades via metacritic before you waste any time or money on games that you might not know about.
