Pocket Gamer Advent Calendar 2017 - Day twelve: Pavilion: Touch Edition

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire? Jack Frost nipping at your nose? In reality, Christmas isn't anything like the movies. We rarely get snow in the UK, and we know more Scrooges than Santa Clauses.

But it's not all bad. To help spread some Christmas cheer, Pocket Gamer has decided to run its very own Advent Calendar. Each day, we'll give away one of the best games of the year from December 1st right up to Christmas day itself.

We don't want to spoil the surprise, so we'll publish the complete list of our best games of 2017 after Christmas. That's right in time for the January sales anyway, so you can grab yourself some of them on the cheap if you don't win.

But enough of all that. Let's take a look at today's offering.

Pavilion: Touch Edition

Pavilion is a hauntingly beautiful experience. It's a puzzler in the same vein as Monument Valley with gorgeous hand drawn environments.

You also don't control the character directly. Instead, you have to interact with the environment to pique the interest of the character.

This is one best experienced yourself though. At review, we gave it a Gold Award and described it as: "A deeply enthralling adventure game that does things differently. You really, really need to play this one".

Pop it in my stocking, would you?
