    I'm looking for android adventure games that are not in the 'combat' genre and not really in the 'hidden object' adventure. more like Myst or Riven of the old days, where you solve puzzles in your quest. The only one i've found was Nightmare Adventures, Witch's Prison. it was great, and i'm wondering if anyone can help either with identifying other games in this genre, or even what the genre is so i could search myself. They don't have to be free apps.

    I'd like to know this too. After reading about this in the op, I checked out this game and am really liking it. Anyone else tried this or know of something similar?

    The Secret of Grisly Manner is like Myst / RIVEN but it is pretty short. I thought I was just getting started and it was the end of the game. I would really like to see those games ported the Android though.

    hey thanks - yap that's exactly the type of thing i'm looking for. there is a reference to the Lost City in there too.

    If anyone else has other suggestions, i'm ears.

    I still think the Witch's Prison is the best so far given it's length and puzzle cadence.

    Hi,

    Im a spare time developer and have a series of point and click games called Amnesia, chapters 0,1&2. Chapter 0 is a short demo with 1 & 2 longer paid games.

    As I said, Im a spare timer and only started learning Java 18months back, so dont be expecting Monkey Island (yet), but Im proud of what I've achieved.

    Aside from my own plug, the Mystique series is quality!

    The point and click adventure, Broken Sword: Director's Cut is available now for Android. I couldn't resist when I saw the title. Bought it right away.

    iOS has Myst and Riven for over a couple years now. They have pretty good reviews and user ratings as well. Seems like Android got shafted. Again.

    Thanks 4 the great games, RedRage! My roomie is stuck on chapter 2, though; got the "China", can't get into the bedroom. Where may we find a hint or two, dear sir?
    This is the genre I search for at every turn. Thanks to all who contributed this info!

    Great thread! :)

    Thanks for providing such a great list of games suggestions. I'll be sure to check those out I haven't gotten around to so far. :)

    Enigmatis by Big Fish Game is a nice adventure/puzzle/hidden object game as well, really liked it. Another one, Million Dollar Adventure by Nevosoft Inc looks interesting too.

    Big Fish Games has several other games that look like they fit in the same genre. I usually get kind of bored playing these games (though I did like the Monkey Island and Indiana Jones series). Search Google Play for Big Fish Games and you'll see several other titles with a similar play style such as Azada and Empress of the Deep:
