    Hi, I've just bought my first iPad (3) and I'm having a great deal of fun with it. I've played classic adventure games on the PC for years and was wondering if there are any really good ones for the ipad. I prefer adventure games in the horror/detective/mystery format like Gabriel Knight rather than the more ethereal puzzle based games like Myst. Apologies if this has been covered before but this looks like a very active forum with over 75 pages of posts!! :D

    Blimey - 410 views so far and not a single recommendation for an adventure game. Am I to assume that none exist for the iPad? :confused:

    Thanks fleur, I suppose I should be grateful for a response but 'not as bad as it seems' isn't exactly selling it to me and having a quick look it hardly seems like it's an adventure game ;)

    It's not an adventure game, but it is a game of strategy. It's free, worth a shot!

    My kid plays Crimson. Again not a true adventure game, but it appears to have quite a strategy to it, in a naval warfare sort of sense. It's free, with in-app purchases for higher levels.

    If you like adventure games you could try Natalie Brooks, the treasures of the lost kingdom....or Spear of Destiny. They both have cool graphic and gameplay!!

    Try Roombreak, 1112 and Drawn; all 3 are enjoyable although not Gabriel Knight quality

    Big Fish Games has a pop-up for iPhone/iPad games. Covers all sorts of different types of games to suit all different tastes. Covers different age groups too. Perhaps worth a look. Shiver: Vanishing Hitchhiker C.E. is quite good. lost in the City: Post Scriptum, also a good choice. Maestro: Music of Death. Thumbs up. There are heaps there, just needs for you to choice the ones you like. Hope this is helpful.

    The porta of Monkey Island are great, but if you're searching for something original i don't know. I'd like to play some great adventure myself :) Well, the Walking Dead game is coming to iOS, read some rave reviews about it.

    I enjoy "Heroes Call". Sorta action RPG in the same vain as "Balders Gate" or "Diablo". It is free as well with some in game purchase that can be made. There is a manditory wait time before you can continue with the story which is a bit strange.... unless you pay! With that being said you can replay past missions to kill the time for more loot. I have played now for a week or so, my guy is up to level 9 and I have not spent one red cent on the game so can't complain at all.

    This app is somewhat an adventure game, and there is a free version, along with a paid full version. Its called Minecraft.

    Some recomendations

    Try the broken sword games, similar to what you are used to playing, also monkey island remakes. Currently no sierra titles yet but you can play a few of the older ones through the website sarien.net. Google 'sierra games on ipad' i'd post the link but there's a stupid rule on this orum oreventing me from doing it. Also sorry or typos. I'm typing on an ipad afterall, we know what that's like right?

    Activsion might be letting sarien do market testing for them beore they deide to port these. The back to the future games by telltale are also good if you're a fan of the movies. I know you said you weren't big on myst but 7th guest is also available on ipad same with some older pc action titles like wolfenstein and doom.
