I need a short and cool name in my puzzle game. Can I use 'venture' instead of 'adventure' because the latter is little longer and sounds less powerful than 'venture'. I am not sure it is correct to use 'venture' because I am not native English speaker. Can you help me to figure it out?

There are differences in meaning. Look up both words at http://dictionary.reference.com/
Check them out as nouns and verbs both.

What will be the full title?

Edit: If you're going for a light-hearted feel for the title, then using 'Venture instead of Adventure could work since the apostrophe indicates that it is being shortened. But I would definitely ask a native speaker (with the full title) before using this, since it is little unusual.

Venture has more of a business/money association.

As a noun, yes. As a verb, though, "venture forth" has no business connotations.

Though one might prefer the (somewhat snappier) "sally forth" - at the risk of being confused with a comic strip [smile]

If there are ponies involved, how about "Giddyup"?
