Most of the puzzle games in the subscription service are of the independent type. But they are also some of the best puzzle games in the independent space. There are a lot of different kinds of games, from old-school adventure games to first-person puzzle games.
Point-and-click adventure games have been around since the beginning of PC games. The genre isn’t as popular as it used to be. But there are some new twists on it that make for a genuinely unique experience. This is shown very well by Genesis Noir.

Return to Monkey Island is the sixth game in the series. It takes place after the other games and starts with Guybrush Threepwood going on another journey to find the real secret of Monkey Island. Many of the characters from the series come back, like Elaine Marley and the bad guy LeChuck.
Human Fall Flat
At first glance, Human Fall Flat might not look like the most complicated game, but it’s all about ragdoll physics. This includes the fact that the player can try to use their character’s left arm and right arm separately to solve certain puzzles as they move through big, linear levels.
In Human Fall Flat, each level is full of different puzzles that require you to pick up and interact with items to get to new places. There are a few levels made by the game’s creators and many more made by players. Some of which have added to the base game.
There has been a movement in games of making everyday tasks into games, which has mostly been successful. One of the best examples of this is the game Unpacking. Which is all about putting things in the right places in a room after moving.
Unpacking is a game about putting things in the right place based on general context hints. It has a story that told through the different objects and places the player goes. The puzzle part comes from putting together a room so that nothing is in an odd place.
Hypnospace Outlaw is a point-and-click adventure game about using the internet. This might seem like a bit of a stretch, but it works well with the story. In this computer game, players took on the role of an Enforcer, a moderator who makes sure people in the Hypnospace follow the rules.
At first, players will asked to do small wrongdoings, but the story will lead them on a path that will lead to a huge scandal. Hypnospace Outlaw players will move through a web that looks like it made in the 1990s. It has unique user pages, interesting characters. And a lot of nostalgia for people who were online in the early days.
People who like the idea of solving problems in real life can now go to more places with their friends or family that have “escape rooms.” Now, you can do these things in video games like Escape Academy. Which is all about being the best at getting out of places.
As a student at the academy, Doodle Baseball players will be put in situations where they need to move through a space and start finding out how to get out. This has different visual tasks that, when solved, give players access to new items that help them move forward. Escape Academy made by people who used to run escape rooms.
In general, first-person puzzle games have become a mainstay of the puzzle genre. Even though there aren’t that many on Xbox Game Pass. Superliminal is one of the best games on the service that fits this description.
As part of dream therapy, the player will move through different rooms and be able to pick up items and change their size based on how the player sees them. But for reasons that aren’t clear, the player can’t get out of this dream state. Superliminal is full of different illusions that keep players thinking as they look at each area for the first time.
Puzzle games can mean a lot of different things, but no matter what kind of puzzle game people like. There’s no doubt that Inside is one of the most powerful games in the category. And the good news is that it’s included in the Xbox Game Pass plan.
The player controls a young boy who seems to be running away from something. Inside is played by trying to stay hidden from different people who want to kill the boy while using things and creatures in the surroundings to figure out how to move forward on the boy’s journey.
