Top 20 Games Like Unravel

Unravel is a game that mixes platforming and puzzle solving. You embody Yarny a little hero made of woolen thread. Yarny would have to go through 12 levels and look for 12 photos in order to gather forgotten childhood memories.

Unravel can be called a pearl when it comes to graphics and gameplay, indeed we marvel at the story and its gameplay even shedding a tear or two from time to time. The plot of the story is melancholic and the original soundtrack is sometimes badly synchronized with the events but everything about the game is simply superb.

Yarny will have to collect small balls of yarn in order to extend its range, its lifespan as well as to continue progress in the game. The puzzles are rather simplistic that even a child would be able to solve them but it does not detract from the charm of the game.

The games that we selected are based on different survival and exploration games that closely resemble Unravel.

I love these kinds of games. I’d also include the 2D Assassins Creed games in the category.
