1. Beyond Good & Evil
The game belongs to the action adventure genre, but differs significantly from other games of this genre in the quality of the game world. All the characters that the main character of the game meets have their own personality, you can almost always talk with them, and even the dialogue scenarios with each of them have several options, and vary depending on the situation in the game.
Constant changes are common to the whole game world. Any significant action of the hero or his opponents, any noticeable change in any one place entails a change in other places.
The game takes place in the year 2435 on the planet of miners Hillys, which suffers attacks from DomZ monsters. These creatures abduct the inhabitants of the planet.
The elite unit of galactic special forces - Alpha Sections - protects the population of the planet from aliens. However, there is an underground rebel organization IRIS Network on the planet. The IRIS Network does not believe that Alpha Sections is really at war with the aliens.
The main character of the game is Jade, a girl of 20 years. She and her uncle organized a shelter for children whose parents were abducted by DomZ. The shelter is located on a small island with a lighthouse.
At some point, Jade is being attacked by the so-called Eye of the DomZ - it looks like an attempt to take over her mind. Uncle helps repel the attack.
And then the representative of the rebels of the IRIS Network begins to contact Jade, and says that Alpha Sections does not protect the planet from aliens, but, on the contrary, in every possible way contributes to the final defeat.
Jade begins to act as a photojournalist, collect materials to expose Alpha Sections.
Further, there are many events in the game and several completely unexpected twists, revealing both Jade's special abilities and her very special origin and purpose.
The basis of the gameplay - solving puzzles and riddles, finding the right directions and finding the right buttons to open the doors.
Many tasks are impossible without a partner. There are several partners in the game, and they can not only help with puzzles, but also take part in battles.
When encountering enemies, Jade fights with Daï-jo's staff. Subsequently, she acquires weapons capable of hitting targets at a distance.
To move, Jade uses hovercraft, which can be improved, both in terms of movement and in terms of weapons - hovercraft also has it.
Jade is constantly taking pictures. She is paid for the photo, although the main task of Jade is to procure Alpha Sections revelations.

3. Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones
A sequel to Stealth Bastard (a.k.a. Stealth, Inc.), in which the player controls a group of identical clones. They are being used as test subjects on a PTi Industries factory. But now one brave clone learned his real purpose and is going to escape to freedom.
Gameplay in Stealth Inc. 2 is centered around stealth action, for which the game was even compared to the Splinter Cell series despite huge stylistic differences. The clone has to move swiftly and silently to avoid security cameras and sentry robots. Its time is limited, however, and the player has to find the balance between speed and safety. Level design in Stealth Inc. 2 reminds of Metroidvania-style platformers. The factory is split into areas, consisting of eight test chambers each, all of them interconnected in the manner called overworld. The player will have to solve puzzles to open new areas. Every area introduces a gadget that should be equipped and is essential to use to move forward. Some of the puzzles are deadly traps that are only solved through trial and error. On the first walkthrough, they will almost inevitably kill the clone and send it back to the checkpoint.

- Overall, this game has a lot going for it, and I encourage you to check it out even if you’re not an adventure game buff.
- Hey Poor Player
- Featuring a crisp pixel art style and steampunk influences, Lamplight City is certainly a game that catches the eye.
Ramto isn’t the smartest guy in the Universe. He enjoys finding troubles - and solving them, but when woke up on a spaceship it was too much even for him. Alone on the ship he had no idea how to pilot, among heaps of weird devices created by a schizophrenic engineer.
Tardy is a quest about fiddling with computers, terminals gadgets and other hi-tech scrap of all sorts. Deal with crazy machines, solve the mystery of the crew disappearance and help Ramto to come back home!
- Do you like conspiracy theories? Start making them up then! The crew is gone, the ship seems to hate you, the Galaxy is engulfed by war and is teeming with traitors.
- Haven’t cried for a while? You’re going to see children dying, characters murdered, and the ending will make you weep (well, not all of you, but still).
- Feel carsick wearing VR-glasses? You won’t need them to immerse into the game. All the buttons, switches and terminals are as good as real.
- Enjoy playing quests but tired of find-the-item and run-around-the-location things? If you don’t want to combine banana peel to a hammer in your inventory, Tardy is the game you’ve been looking for!
- Pixel art still doesn’t make you cry blood? Wonderful! Moreover, ours is pleasing to the eye. Just like our music is pleasing to the ear.
- Tardy costs a bit more than the average sandwich. We can’t believe you haven’t bought it yet!

50. The Works of Mercy
'The Works of Mercy' is a psychological thriller inspired by the classics of the genre: Roman Polanski’s 'Repulsion,' 'The Tenant' and Stanley Kubrick’s 'The Shining.' The game’s plot revolves around mysterious killings committed on seemingly random victims. Only this time it’s the player who becomes the murderer.
'The Works of Mercy' tells a story of a personal tragedy and wrecked psyche. When a cryptic tormentor forces the protagonist to kill people in order to save his family, the game’s hero (and the player) is posed with a series of dramatic questions. Who is the tormentor? Why is he so vengeful toward the protagonist’s family? How far do you have to go to satisfy him? How can you justify the killing in the sake of saving someone’s life? And how will you cope with the sense of guilt?
'The Works of Mercy' takes place in a photorealistic world as immersive as the real one. It lets the player get the very feel of roaming through murky locations and delve into the hero’s mind which is put to a serious trial. The game enables you to explore a fully interactive environment featuring the best elements of such games as 'Gone Home' or 'P.T.'
'The Works of Mercy' will leave the gamers with a lasting impression and face them with the question: how much could I sacrifice for my family? It will take the players through a dark world which gradually dissolves to an increasingly surreal vision of the protagonist’s mind captured in a lethal trap.
'The player is given various controversial missions which don't must be completed to progress through the story line but then you will take the consequences and your world will turn into a horror. You have to think a lot what you are saying and doing because somebody can die even if you don't want it. It's not easy but there is a place for outsmart your tormentor. It all depends on your perceptiveness and creativity. You decide who you want to be and what you want to do. It's great because you can play the game many times to check what will happen if you do something differently than previously. In that case the game isn't linear and has different endings. You describe the actions of your character rather than acting him out. For example, during interactive dialogues. The game gives you a lot of freedom and impact on the story.'
