Puzzle-Solving

Description

Puzzle-solving may refer to actual puzzles (logical, mathematical, physical, etc.), as well as a type of problem-solving distinguished by clue-gathering and manipulation of objects. This type is particularly characteristic for puzzle-solving adventures. Puzzles may also occur in action games, e.g. platformers or (more rarely) 3D shooters.

Puzzle games (i.e. games that are entirely composed out of puzzles) are categorized within the strategy genre.
