Point and Click adventure

Hello everyone. My first post here, thanks for all the help in advance.

I would like to find a great point and click adventure for my iPad Air, much like the ones from the old days. Broken Sword, etc, but with nice HD graphics and great plot.

I've been checking Broken Sword 5, but the reviews are mixed and I feel a little lost about any others.
Also some Telltale titles, like Wolf Among US ( I dislike Walking Dead franchise), seem interesting, but expensive, and above all, they seem like glorified graphic novels, with little thinking to do, just conversations.

Can I get some recommendations for the best point and clicks on iPad? What are considered the best nowadays?

You really should try Broken Age. The first part of the game is out already and the second part will come at the end of the year probably as a free update. It was a very successful kickstarter project.

Lost Echo it's a quite underrated game, it's not that hard but quite lengty (took me around 8 hours to finish it) and slow paced, looks beautiful (with the exception of the characters) and has a quite nice sense of humor, you may want to check it out, I belive it costs 2 or 3 dollars if I recall correctly.
BTW: Welcome to the TA forums!
Edit: Totaly forgot of Silent Age, it's free and quite short but thrust me, you'll love it!

Um... Broken Sword 1 and 2 are both available, remastered, and excellent on iOS.

The iPad is the perfect platform for those types of game. But i think the visual novel Ace Attorney and Ghost Trick are the best on AppStore.

The recent release "Secret Files: Tunguska" is one option that comes to mind. I'm a fan of these games as well and you should check out "A Darker Shade of Red" and "The Journey Down."

Botanicula is gorgeous and whimsical, excellent game

I'm a sci fi fan, so my favorite is Gemini Rue

It's been out a while, but I'd go with 'Machinarium' by Amanita Design.
