Tormentum is a point-and-click adventure that recently got released onto Android. I think that the game’s selling point is the is the setting and atmosphere, as well as the puzzles and choices as it really delivers on dark and creepy. There’s other areas where it comes up short though, but those issues are nothing that destroy the experience, nor are they anything that can’t be fixed.
Released by OhNoo Studio, Tormentum – Dark Sorrow is a gloomy point-and-click adventure game that’s just been released onto Android. We have previously written on their crowd funding for this game.

Giger and Zdzisław Beksiński, players will be assuming the role of an unnamed protagonist, who awakens inside a cage (similar to what would house a parakeet), chained to a flying machine.

DotEmu has ported and released a rather popular classic point-and-click adventure games from back in the good ole’ days for PC games called I Have no Mouth, And I Must Scream. If you couldn’t tell by the title of this game, this is a rather disturbing adventure title which was originally released back in 1995 on PC.
Released by Zojoi and Reverb Triple XP, desktop classic Shadowgate is now available for Android and Amazon devices. The game was originally designed for Macintosh and Amiga systems nearly thirty years ago, but being point-and-click allows it to easily translate to modern, touch-based handsets. This isn’t a straight port from the late 80s though, as gameplay had been updated along with achievements, cut scenes, and new puzzles having been added in as well.
