After LucasArts' brilliant 1993 game Day of the Tentacle, cartoon-style point-and-click adventure games slowly became their own sub-genre. Although the genre has had its ups and downs, these games are still around: Think Gemini Rue or the new Broken Sword.

Here's our collection of the most beautiful cartoon-style adventure games.

Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror (1997 - PC/PlayStation, 2010 - iOS)


The Curse of Monkey Island (1997 - PC)

Runaway: A Road Adventure (2003 - PC)


Touché: The Adventures of the Fifth Musketeer (1995 - PC)

Discworld II: Mortality Bytes! (1996 - PC, 1997 - PlayStation, Sega Saturn)


The Last Express (1997 - PC, 2012 - iOS)

Ace Ventura (1996 - PC)


King's Quest VII: The Princeless Bride (1994 - PC)

Lesuire Suit Larry 7: Love For Sail (1996 - PC)


Toonstruck (1996 - PC)

and as a +1, a sad reminder that we almost had a Warcraft adventure PC game,

WarCraft Adventures: Lord of the Clans (cancelled in 1998)
