Sky: Children of Light
Sky: Children of Light is not a new title, but it is surely an excellent adventure game that you should try for. The game includes seven worlds for you to explore and a wide range of character customisation. The unique part of the game is its graphics and the soothing music that can relax your mind. If you get stuck/lost while trying to find objects, other players take you where you need to go by grabbing your hand. You can also interact with other players via text chats. The evocative visuals and mesmerising soundscore are arguably breath-taking, and the mysterious ending will just make you re-download the game.

The endless runner-style arcade game includes ads but that can come in handy if you die in between and want revival.
