Series: The House of Da Vinci
System: iOS (iPhone)
These devs don’t get nearly enough credit. This is honestly one of the best point-and-click puzzle games ever, and I’m so happy I found it after playing The Room series. It’s only available on iOS or Android (I think this one is on Android; I played the others on my Kindle), and it’s also only around $5, which isn’t remotely what it’s worth. They’re selling themselves short. I’d pay at least three times as much for this game. The puzzles are actually intuitive. You’re not unlocking a door with a feather or baseball et al. They’re also just hard enough to hold your attention but not frustrate you. Also there’s a clue system that works in stages, and it will literally tell you the solution if you get too stuck. It’s up to you whether or not to use it, and you can turn it off if you don’t even want the temptation.
