The Most Beautiful Cartoon-Style Adventure Games

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)
