Best Android, iPhone and iPad adventure games of 2015


We're nearly halfway through 2015, and with so many great new adventure games for Android and iOS, it's sometimes hard to keep track. It's time to make some order in that list every gamer has in their head about those games that you still haven't played, but absolutely must not forget to check out.

In this selection, we look at the best iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows Phone adventure games of 2015 and 2015 only. This means two things: we will include only the very best games that you won't regret playing, and all of them will be released in 2015.

The adventure game genre seems to have been around since the early dawn of gaming and needs no introduction, but we ought to say that there is some variety in it: from flat point and click games to more elaborate 3D-esque creations. Naturally, adventure games are all about the plot riddled with twists, and a good story was one of our main requirements when picking the best adventure games. Take a look at them right below: the best Android, iPhone and iPad adventure games of 2015.
