Hi jldcat- Those are all great games Joy. Most adventure games have some kind of puzzles. Riddle of the Sphinx was my favorite. I played it long before I discovered walk-throughs and hint boards. It took me three months to get through the game. I am presently playing Last Half of Darkness (Shadows of the Servants) and I wasn't sure that I would like a game that was goolish. I love the puzzles and hints the game gives. What kind of game do you prefer? First person - (Nancy Drew) (Safecracker) or Third person (Keepsake) ect. One of the best games that I have played this year was Barrow Hill. I know jldcat will agree because I know she played it. She has proably played every game that has ever been released. I on the other hand prefer first person point & click. Check out the reviews here on GameBoomers. You can also go to New Releases and get screen shots and a small introductions to almost all the games that are out right now. Have fun.

If you'd like a game that's just puzzles - try Pandora's Box. It's an older game that's been re-issued in the $9.99 jewel box version, and it has a great variety of unusual puzzles.

And some other puzzle games with no storyline to speak of try the Wonderland Stinky games (3) from and Elemental from AND The Valhalla Classics from Vulcan Software Limited. These and Pandora's Box are excellent puzzle "head scratchers"

Pandora's Box is ALL puzzles and loads of fun! Be sure to get the game of the year edition though, as that one will work on WinXP

Gees is right, of course. Most adventure games have plenty of puzzles in them lol

Jewels of the Oracle I & II, Safecracker, 7th Guest, 11th Hour, Schizm/Mysterious Journey, Riddle of the Sphinx, Omega Stone, Clandestiny, Chemicus, Physicus, Bioscopia, and Timelapse are particularly puzzle-centric. Also I remember someone mentioning one in a museum. Was that Shivers? wave

Yes!! That's what I was thinking too, Susan - Shivers 1...

My favorites are Safecraker and Curse of Blackmoor Manor (Nancy Drew) - most of the Nancy Drew games contain a lot of puzzles thumbsup
Everyone has a photographic memory...some just don't have film.

I'm with you Renee. Safecracker was fantastic. I have played all the Nancy Drew games and Curse of Blackmoor Manor was the best. It was filled with puzzles and sent chills up my spine. Message in the Haunted Masion was my first ND. The list of great games just goes on and on. I'm waiting for Pieces of Eight. I checked out the web site and it looks like something to get excited about. I found many of the older games where much better than some of the newer ones. But I have played some great ones in the past year. I think the puzzles are the best part of the games JOY and there's plenty out there.
PS. I'm going to check out Pandora's Box. Thanks

You can't beat the early Myst games for puzzles -particularly Riven and Exile. Other older games are Obsidian, Drowned God, Cassandra Galleries, Entombed Enhanced, Chaos a Fantasy Adventure, Black Dahlia and Connections. Some newer games are Mysterious Journey 2, Sentinel and Aura.
For pure puzzles try the Puzz3D series if you like jigsaws and the Mulawa games (Magnetic, Xiama).

I love Pandora's Box, I played it four times!

I definitely recommend it.

I just finished Orient Express and it was very very good. It is more adventure than puzzle though. There is a game called Xiama that is total puzzles that you might like.
Prices are going up everywhere except in our incomes.

As far as I am concerned, you can't beat the Myst games. period lol

I just felt they were more immersive/story-centric & I was trying to list ones that I enjoyed but felt more like going from puzzle to puzzle KWIM?

Half of Riven's & Myst's puzzles felt so natural to 'being there.' Mind you, the other half really made up the difference lol

I still haven't played it yet ( wave

If you only want puzzles and minimal plot, Pandora's Box would be a great choice! If you can get your hands on a "vintage" win 95/98 computer, see if you can get Jewels of the Oracle I. (I've never played the sequel.)

I think Jewels will run on XP. Gems of Darkness, the sequel, won't.
