Best Games to Play on Touch-Screen Devices

GOGmix by ylitvinenko's avatarylitvinenko 2votes

Ultima™ Underworld 1+2

ylitvinenko's rating:
250

ylitvinenko says: Mouse and keyboard controls for these games can be quite clunky, but it's a breeze to play with a finger or a stylus, especially if your device have some kind of navi button. Everything works fine, from picking up items to slashing enemies.

Simon the Sorcerer

ylitvinenko's rating:
250

ylitvinenko says: Much like any other point'n'click adventure game, Simon the Sorcerer plays extremely well with touch screen. Verb and item lists are always on screen, so you don't have to map the right mouse button or fiddle the pointer near screen borders.

Broken Sword: Director's Cut

ylitvinenko's rating:
250

ylitvinenko says: (Sorry, but I can review only the original version here.) Same as Beneath a Steel Sky: everything is fine, but you must became accustomed to non-touch-friendly inventory screen. Besides, you have to map the right mouse button.

SimCity™ 2000 Special Edition

ylitvinenko's rating:
250

ylitvinenko says: Well, you can handle this game at ease using only touch screen - all you need is map the right mouse button, as usual.

Beneath a Steel Sky

ylitvinenko's rating:
250

ylitvinenko says: It's another point'n'click adventure, besides, it's free! Controls are OK, because, well, this game belongs to touch-screen friendly game genre for, but item selecting can be painful if your screen is not calibrated or if you are inaccurate.

Leisure Suit Larry

ylitvinenko's rating:
250

ylitvinenko says: Leisure Suit Larry 1 (VGA remake), 5 and 6 are quite comfortable to control with stylus too. Playing EGA Larrys on touch device, however, is VERY tricky and requires on-screen keyboard and using a ScummVM for obtaining mouse support.

Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded

ylitvinenko's rating:
250

ylitvinenko says: This reimagination of LSL1 is perfect for phone or tablet because it was designed with touch-screen devices in mind. Of course you can get this game on mobile app stores, but you can grab PC DRM-free version from GOG and run it on your Surface Pro :P

Treat your GOGmix as your child - name it! ;)

Coming up with a cool and descriptive title should be your first priority. Being original is in your best interest - bet you wanna get lots of nice votes, right? Go all crazy if you want, but be sure to keep it civil!

So, what are the ingredients?

Pick a game that belongs in your GOGmix from the list, or find it by typing something in the text field. Relevance is key here - Earthworm Jim doesn't quite fit the "Sexiest heroines of all time" bill now, does it?

Justify your choice... Or not!

OK, so it's not required, but now that you went through the trouble of adding a game, telling everyone why you did it would be a nice finishing touch. After you're done here, add another game, rinse, repeat.
