Skill, puzzles and beautiful stories: this is what fans of adventure games want. In this article, we will present you with what we think are the best of the genre.

The best adventure games for Android: The Walking Dead (seasons 1 & 2)

Those who are familiar with the television series or the comics know that fighting zombies is thrilling, out of the ordinary and a little bit sad.

The best adventure games for Android: CSI Hidden Crimes

Making a video game out of a film or TV series is good idea in theory, but often license fees are prohibitively expensive. Regardless, Ubisoft made it happen. The adventure is based on the successful CSI series and, just like the series, you solve criminal cases.

The method is classic: you have to find the person responsible by looking for clues and putting together the evidence. Nothing new, but that's no problem as the investigations are engaging and the atmosphere of the TV series is kept. In other words, I recommend it not just for fans of the series, but fans of the genre.
