Post Adventures I can come up with

I have a specials-magazine of Amiga Joker that features all adventure games ever produced until 1992 for Amiga, ST and PC. They reviewed many titles I had never heard of before.

Here is a list of adventures I can come up with now. I don't know if they are all point'n'click:
Bargon Attack (Loriciel, 1992)
Codename: Iceman (Sierra On-line, 1990)
Colonel's Bequest (Sierra On-line, 1990)
Curse of Enchantia (Core Design, 1992)
Demoniak (Palace, 1990)
Emanuelle (Coktel Vision, 1990)
Hook (Ocean, 1992)
KGB (Cryo, 1992)
Labyrinth of Time for CDTV/CD32 (EA, 1994)
Leisure Suit Larry (1,2,3,5) (Sierra)
Les Manley: Search for the King (Accolade, 1990)
Maya: The Incan adventure (Loriciel, 199x)
Police Quest 1-3 (Sierra)
Quest for Glory 1-3 (Sierra)
Simon the Sorcerer 1 (Adventuresoft, 1993)
Simon the Sorcerer 2 (Epic Marketing?, 2000)
Space Quest 1-4 (Sierra)
Universe (Core Design, 1994)
Ween -The Prophecy (Coktel Vision, 1992)

Re: Adventures I can come up with

Demoniak is a textadventure with some pics in between.
The Sierra & Accolade games only have point and click for movements.
Maya has the same controls like Colorado (joystick + F-keys).

Re: Monkey 3&4

I like Monkey 3's graphic approach, cartoony shit, pretty good. The game's not as funny as before because Ron Gilbert went out...

Monkey 4 is shite. The 3D graphics dont suit Monkey Island IMO...

Talking about Point n clickers... what about the Coktel Vision games like Fascination, Gobliins, etc? And Future Wars, Operation stealth et al by Delphine?

Arrow Adventuring

S4murai, thanks for clearing up some things. There is also an adventure game I almost forgot: Psygnosisí Obitus. I am sure this is not a point Ďní click adventure because I've never played it.

Akira, I think the Goblins trilogy are more a puzzle than an adventure. The games consists of levels one has to solve. Since I am not good in puzzles I erased the first Goblins after a few goes. Shame on me.
I have finished Operation Stealth once with a walkthrough by hand. (I am also not good at Adventuring). This game has so many different subgames that it is more a mix of gamingstyles than a pure adventure. It is a great adventure like they donít make them anymore. Pity the ingame speech cannot be turned off.

I have also a question: in the last issues of Amiga Format in 1999/2000 there was a walkthrough of an adventure game that was released the very same year. It looked very impressive. Anyone knows the title?

Basically you could argue though that all adventure games were large puzzle games. And Gobliiins was level based. So was Gobliins2 and Goblins3, but at least Gobliins2 had a couple of screens you could move freely between.

Goblins is like a point n click adventure to me. Not a graphic adventure like Monkey Island, but if we extend our domain to 'point n click adventures', I'd say it fits. But it really is a borderliner of a game.

About Operation Stealth... There was a game released in... ~1993... for ST and Amiga, it was french, and looked very similar... The Shortgrey, I think was the name??? It looked quite cool...

SHeer Agony

There is one Point and Clicker that you Amiga owners never had. The spooky, beautiful Atari St game, Sheer Agony. This was a wonderful , rare game that I played on my Atari St long ago, and was the envy of my Amigan buddies. Its set in a spooky old house, like the 7th Guest, but far better than that PeeCee drivel of a game. Shame, the Amiga's graphics chip would have done this game justice.

Point & Click adventures are cool as most people have probably listed the ones I would suggest are:

Drakseed
Secret of Monkey Island
Secret of Monkey Island 2 - Le Chucks Revenge
Simon the Sorcerer

Ah, but it can! Simply disable all but 512k of RAM.
