Lara Croft GO

When you think about it Tomb Raider is basically an action-adventure video game with puzzles, so Lara Croft starring in a "puzzle-adventure" title on mobile devices isn't such a bad idea. Lara Croft GO is an App Store Editor's Choice that takes place in the ruins of an ancient civilization where Croft is trying to uncover the myth of the Queen of Venom. The game features great looking graphics, swipe-to-move controls, enemies, more than 75 puzzles and the ability to find ancient relics and unlock new outfits.
