The old point-and-click adventure genre fell into disuse and neglect following its early '90s golden period. Fans of the classic LucasArts adventures like Monkey Island were left to pine for a bygone age.

But the advent of smartphones and tablets, as well as a thriving indie game scene and online crowdfunding models, has seen the genre resurrected.

Not only resurrected, but often developed and spliced with other genres. There are some deeply interesting point-and-click adventure games out there that play with time and narrative conventions in bold new ways.

The following 25 games are all over the map in tone, setting, length and complexity. But they all take you on a rollicking good adventure.
