Top 20 Games Similar to Unravel

Updated January 4, 2020

Unravel is a game that mixes platforming and solving puzzles. You will play as Yarny, a little hero created with woolen thread. Through 12 levels, Yarny will have to gather 12 photos and collect forgotten childhood memories.

Unravel is what can be called a pearl in terms of graphics and gameplay. We can marvel at the story and its gameplay, and almost shed a tear from time to time. The story goes along with the game’s melancholic soundtrack, although there are times when it’s badly synchronized with the events. Aside from that, everything is simply superb!

As he progresses into the game, Yarny will have to collect small balls of yarn to extend his lifespan and to be able to continue with his journey. The puzzles are quite simple that even a child could play, but that does not remove the charm of the game.

The games we selected closely resemble the different elements in terms of gameplay and other aspects in Unravel

In terms of finding games similar to Unravel, there are a few that come to mind. Games like The Cave, Trine 2, or Child of Light which offers fairy-like artwork and an equally original and touching story.

The gameplay of these games is relatively simple, like in Child of Light where you will have to face opponents and solve some puzzles to advance. In Unravel, you will move forward after being able to solve puzzles which in turn allows you to cross obstacles.

The controls will allow you to throw a lasso-like woolen rope, and you will have to cross the obstacles or move objects to reveal a passage.

What do these games have in common?


As mentioned above, the common points are mainly the gameplay, graphics, and original story. That said, not all games are meant to be as beautiful as Unravel which effectively pairs its story with its melancholic soundtrack.
