To see the complete list, visit our ranking of the best point-and-click Android games.

10. Beat Cop

11bit Studios already has quite the repertoire with titles like This War of Mine and the more recent Frostpunk. This new point and click adventure kind of follows the same formula. Beat Cop plays with equally difficult themes, revolving around the story of a disgraced cop on his way to redemption.

Play as Jack Kelly and experience his living hell as a suspected murderer with an annoying boss and a horrible domestic life. Despite the darkness of its themes, Beat Cop has a nice, living world to immerse in. Its environments seem meticulously detailed, from its clean HUD to the streets themselves, lined with moving cars and interesting passersby.

With all that, Beat Cop is still a free game and as such, it doesn't quite close in on the immersion because of its lack of voice acting. Still, it's Jack Kelly's life is a life worth seeing though, with a score of 8.14.

9. The Frostrune

Grimnir Media's adventure takes us far away from the brutal reality of Beat Cop. Instead, we're taken to the mysterious world of Viking mythology. Shipwrecked and marooned into an unknown island, you find yourself in an abandoned settled with only ancient runes and burial mounds for the company.

Frostrune depicts its world in 2D illustrations that capture quiet isolation, and also the burgeoning of something intensely magical. As a point and click adventure, it's a bit slow on the uptake. It might be a little lacking for some, but worth the patient investment for others.

It's a unique adventure that shows off its ingenuity with its puzzles, and also its creativity with its Old Norse dialogue that takes us fully to their realized spirit world. It has a playscore of 8.47.

8. Old School RuneScape

This might be the most different of all the games in this list, but it also happens to be one of the most well-known names in gaming. RuneScape is a hell of a lot different than it used to be, so developer Jagex provided fans with a much needed time capsule.

Old School Runescape is exactly the old school MMORPG you once loved, and now you can bring it along with you wherever you go. Face the dragons, sail the seas, and take down the monsters once more.

The Silent Age follows the more familiar formula for the genre. Take on the role of a janitor who finds a portal to the future and becomes the only hope for humanity's survival.

It's a sci-fi trope that's been made many times before but it homes in on the genre with an atmosphere built on stylistic visuals and eerie soundtracks. While that’s nice and good, what completes The Silent Age experience is still its engaging puzzles and compelling storyline.

The game has been out for a while, and there are two episodes for you to get lost in. With each one brimming with just the right amount of tension to make you want answers to the many questions it raises, it rightly deserves its playscore of 8.64.

With such a dark setting, there's a lot of gray moral areas to balance out.

As a title that's heavy, dark, and depressing, it might not be everyone's cup of tea. With a playscore of 8.68, the choice is yours.
