Violence may not be the answer to all of life's problems. In fact, using our head might be the better approach to dealing with the challenges we face every day. Or even in these free online point-and-click games at Silvergames.com.
As is usual with point-and-click adventure games you play by using your mouse or other pointing devices (like your index finger) to move your character around. By clicking on individual items or other characters, you get to interact with them. Some characters you can even engage in dialogue with in form of conversation trees, giving you multiple options to best solve the puzzle the game presents you with. One of the most famous software studios LucasArts games (formerly Lucasfilm Games) popularised the use of on-screen verbs to let you interact with your character's surroundings in a more nuanced way. Games like the Monkey Island series, but also Space Quest and King's Quest by Sierra On-Line are some of the most popular examples of this genre. All of which invited players to explore the story of the game as their protagonists stumbled from room to room, chasing down items and dropping them into their inventory.
The point-and-click genre would later give birth to the similarly structured escape games, where playing revolved around finding the way out. If you're itching to "pick up hamster" and "use hamster with microwave" (you meanie!), you should dive right into our selection of free online point-and-click games and explore even more of our adventure games.
