After LucasArts’ brilliant 1993 game Day of the Tentacle, cartoon-style point-and-click adventure games slowly became their own sub-genre. Although the genre has had its ups and downs, these games are still around: Think Gemini Rue or the new Broken Sword.
Here’s our collection of the most beautiful cartoon-style adventure games.
Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror (1997 – PC/PlayStation, 2010 – iOS)
The Curse of Monkey Island (1997 – PC)
Runaway: A Road Adventure (2003 – PC)
Touché: The Adventures of the Fifth Musketeer (1995 – PC)
Discworld II: Mortality Bytes! (1996 – PC, 1997 – PlayStation, Sega Saturn)
The Last Express (1997 – PC, 2012 – iOS)
Ace Ventura (1996 – PC)
King’s Quest VII: The Princeless Bride (1994 – PC)
Leisure Suit Larry 7: Love For Sail (1996 – PC)
Toonstruck (1996 – PC)
And as a +1, a sad reminder that we almost had a Warcraft adventure PC game,
WarCraft Adventures: Lord of the Clans (cancelled in 1998)
