10 Alexa Skills Every Gamer Born In The 80’s Will Love
Anyone else wish Alexa did more than play songs and tell jokes?
I did a little digging, and there’s actually 4,000+ things Alexa can do now. Many of them are rubbish, but thar be some gold too.
I’m a die hard fan of gaming, and couldn’t find a list curating the best Alexa games for gamers. So I took thine task upon thineself.
If you’ve ever played Dungeons & Dragons, or loved a choose your own adventure story, then you’ll love this list.
Are you ready to choose your adventure?
Uncover the truth behind the mysteries and murders at the Abbey of St Elspeth, in RuneScape Quests: One Piercing Note, an interactive audio adventure from Jagex Games Studio. Use the power of Alexa to investigate crime scenes and confront the demons hiding within the serene Abbey’s walls. Can you choose the correct path and stop the murderer before it’s too late?
Who killed Thomas and Martha Wayne? In this mystery game, Alexa guides you as you hit the mean streets of Gotham to investigate the murder of young Bruce Wayne’s parents. Can you navigate around the story’s dead ends to find the path that solves the crime?
You become an adventurer who is transported to a realm of magic, treasure, dragons, combat, and puzzles to solve a great quest. The more you play, the stronger you become. You will learn new and amazing spells, discover items of incredible power, and become the champion whose coming is foretold in legend. This is a classic role-playing game in the style of the original Bard’s Tale, but you won’t be tied up with dice rolls or stats. The character you play is yourself (you can name yourself at any time), and you are caught up in a grand adventure from the moment you start playing.

Needy peasants. A backstabbing nobility. A king who is never satisfied. Nobody said that running a feudal fiefdom would be easy. But with this Alexa game, it is bound to be entertaining. Are you prepared to make some of the hardest decisions of your (soon to be short) life? You sit as a medieval lord of the realm, presented with an ever-expanding array of difficulty choices. Make good choices and stay in power as long as you can!
You play a rogue in this choice-based text adventure set in a medieval fantasy world. With debts to pay to the underworld, you need to make a lot of coin fast! Perhaps worse, you’re wanted by the King’s men for desertion. Survival is your first priority, but can you thrive in the ruthless streets of Ring City? On top of this, can you discover the secret within the walls of the city… And beneath!
Alas, you may think I am done here.
I know I said there would be 10, but it would be a crime to not include something about zombies on this list.
Here’s one more, as a bonus gift to you fine reader.
Do consider a share, if you think this was a good list. I don’t make any money from it, but sharing is a nice thing to do wouldn’t you say? Tata for now :-)
Escape from an army of the living dead, rescue others and don’t get bit.
