The type video games known as point and click is a very special one, because it unites a great variety of genres. This type is something like a method of how you, gamers, interact with the digital entertainment. It is characterized by a special way of control that doesn’t require keyboard, so no button combinations are needed.

Usually, such titles don’t have any other controls except pointing the objects with your mouse and moving, changing, or manipulating them in any other way.

The history of such titles started with graphical stories that immerse you into some kind of a novel with pictures, where you are the main character, who makes decisions by means of clicking and moving forward.

However, with time the capacities have grown, but these titles are still attracting the attention of millions fans just because they are simple, fun, relaxing and story-driven, which a pretty rare case in small games of nowadays. Thus, when the point to click titles have just appeared, it was a real twist in the game world. Before this format was created, gamers had to control a character from the first person perspective, while point to click format made it possible to see the character on the screen and operate him in another way. The older titles used a lot of text to support the story of the game, so they were more like visual novels you can play, not just read. Today, some developers make their titles look old-school by adding text into the games, which is perceived as some special charm and style.
