Games I finished without hints.

Recommendations by Rovarsson (Belgium)

It's better for the feeling of immersion when you're not reading a walkthrough while playing. These games are definitely solvable without hints.
Some very friendly puzzlewise, some a tad harder.

1. Jack Toresal and The Secret Letter, by Mike Gentry and David Cornelson (2009)

Very railroaded. Just follow along with the exciting adventure-story.

2. Photopia
by Adam Cadre
(1998)
Average member rating: (492 ratings)

Gripping story, paced through the medium of IF. Puzzleless.

3. Earth and Sky
by Paul O'Brian
(2001)
Average member rating: (75 ratings)

Rovarsson says:

Experimenting time! Don your superhero-suit and check out what your powers can do. No real puzzles, but a cool bossfight. (Sequels 2 & 3 are in the same vein, but somewhat harder.)

4. An Evening at the Ransom Woodingdean Museum House
by Ryan Veeder
(2016)

Rovarsson says:

Slowly creeping unnervedness. Pretty straightforward puzzlewise.

5. Glowgrass, by Nate Cull (1997)
Average member rating: (90 ratings)

Easy puzzles. Cool exploration of a sci-fi house. Stepwise discovery of the backstory.

6. Napier's Cache

Great story about an alchemical treasurehunt, divided in short scenes.

7. Molly and the Butter Thieves
by Alice Grove (as Cosmic Hamster)
(2015)

Follow the Faeries to their palace. Fun easy puzzles in a lighthearted story.

8. Fragile Shells
by Stephen Granade
(2010)
Average member rating: (45 ratings)

Rovarsson says:

Escape the Space Station by combining what's left of it after the explosion. Great common sense puzzles.

9. The Orion Agenda, by Ryan Weisenberger (2004)
Average member rating: (15 ratings)
Rovarsson says:

Requires a bit of thinking it through at the end.

10. Firebird
by Bonnie Montgomery
(1998)
Average member rating: (27 ratings)

Rovarsson says:

Very nice retelling of a Russian Folk-tale. Easy to medium puzzles.

11. Metamorphoses
by Emily Short
(2000)
Average member rating: (113 ratings)

Rovarsson says:

Have fun tinkering with the magic machines. Harder puzzles, but many solutions. Keep trying and you'll reach an ending. For other endings, replay!

12. Babel
by Ian Finley
(1997)
Average member rating: (134 ratings)

Rovarsson says:

This one is harder. Stick by the basic IF-rules (Explore!, Examine!, Read!) and you'll make it through.
