Best Adventure Games Rated General (G) and Older on IOS

Adventure video games invite you to attempt dangerous or mountainous experiences. This is the heroes journey where you play a protagonist who must take on daring deeds to reclaim a precious item, get to the top of the mountain or go there and back again and survive the ordeal.

While Shooting games offer exuberance and adrenaline, they focus on the mechanics of the fight rather than the narrative of the journey. Some combine the two with a campaign mode adventure and online pure shooting modes. Some adventure games also include Fighting, Role Playing and Strategy. But to stay in the Adventure genre, the arc of the quest needs to be the main focus rather than play in arenas or rounds.

Adventure games that double down on the Narrative of the characters and world expand the experience to include wider reflection, consequences and tensions as you would find in a novel.
