Hiding Under a Rock
I was given the gift of a new iPad Air. I have been looking but sadly have not found hardly any of the type of games that i like to play. Did find Myst and Riven (my fave) but hardly anything else that i am interested in.
I like mysterious and and adventure games and spooky too. But not 'action' games.
I am still using my Win 7, 64 bit for everything and games that will run on it (that i like) are pretty much over with-thankfully i have shelves of ones bought through the years!
would anyone have any suggestions?

Unfortunately, not many games were ported to the Apple products. The few that were all seem to be "dumbed down" with puzzles removed and games shortened. Maybe someone who games on Macs will have some suggestions.

An iPad Air is not a Mac, and won't run games made for Mac OS X.
You need to look on the Apple Shop for IOS games.

You could try the Room series if you haven't played them before.

Well, that show you how much I don't know about these Apple products!

If it's running IOS you should be able to install ScummVM, and with that you can play many of the old classics. I have it installed on my tablet and have played quite a few of the old Sierra & Westwood games.

You should also be able to find a version of DOSBOX for IOS, I have that one installed as well.
