The last of this week's point'n'click-fest, Driven is a dark adventure where the lack of new fangled things like flash mean that your first task is to pick your browser carefully. I got lots of broken links using Opera and FF, meaning I had to resort to *shudder* Internet Explorer. If that doesn't make a game creepy I don't know what does. It does mean though that the tab key cheat is rendered useless - so there'll be no cheating.

Basement Jaxx
This Friday I'm mainly going nuts with Basement Jaxx. What have you been listening to that will be helping you unwind from the working week today and become your Friday night theme tune? List your tracks in the comments. Extra brownie points if you link to some audio so we can all share. Sample Jaxx Tracks here. Over to you...

La Piedra De Anamara
Creepy sound effects and spooky graphics make La Piedra De Anamara a great game to play in the dark. Remember to bring your torch though. You'll need it to read your Spanish-English dictionary.

The twisted nature of point'n'click games is revealed when you realise that you are relieved to be in a plane crash in the jungle as it makes a nice change to being locked in a room (Mac on a desk, waste-paper basket with hidden secrets, key hidden somewhere thereabouts, etc, etc). Well it's nice to get out once in a while isn't it? Anyways stuff the gameplay, I love the jungle background graphics and audio on this one, enjoy.

BTW: One useful thing while I remember, this game seems to remember where you have got to, so if you don't want to complete it all in one go you can quit out without losing all of your progress so far.

Ninjai Episode 12
I've forgotten for ages to post the latest episode of ninjai, but the series is so long running now that a short delay isn't really a big deal. This episode is as good as the rest, and just as blood thirsty, but is obviously not the last installment as we were lead to believe (yeah!), is it the end of the line for the little bird though?

Point'n'click the little man out of prison. This seemed really easy up until the point where the dog caught me on my way out of the door. Bad fido. I'm not even 100% certain that 'YHJ' is the name of this game by the way but it's the only writing I could find on the thing, and it would appear you don't need to give a monkeys about what it's called to play it, so whatever (and yes, I did say that in a winey voice and make a 'W' with my fingers).

Is This The Way To Amarillo?
Okay so everyone in the UK is probably sick of Peter Kay miming to Tony Christie singing Amarillo by now, and everyone outside the UK probably doesn't know what the heck is going on with this, but it still makes me smile and I still have to sing along (making most of the words up, of course) every time I hear it, so I'm posting it anyway. And, of course, you can still donate here to comic relief, a genius money raising British invention, which it's all in aid of.

Cool Flame
BMW Atmospheric graphics BMW and music BMW give this point'n'click adventure a nice feel BMW, but I can't help but feel BMW that there might be some subtle BMW advertising BMW in there somewhere. Part one of cool flame is a free-for-all BMW, but you have to register BMW if you want to play the rest BMW. Hopefully though BMW, you don't actually have to buy a car BMW. I'm hoping my BMW Mini counts if you do...[thanks Adam].

Nice looking, simple gameplay & very poorly named (m2ng?), this little point'n'clicker should stave off those gaming withdrawal symptoms for a few minutes longer. No need to comment on how easy this one is - I know already - 5 minutes with no walkthru or tab key and I was done, and I can be a total spanner with these things sometimes. First one to post a walkthru gets a slap...

PSP Birthday
I actually had a PSP in my hands today (thank you Imran and your Japanese import). A rare thing in the UK (thanks to all my American friends whos' PSP demand has pushed back the UK release to June or something else ridiculous now). I've now moved from really wanting one to having to have one. Sheer awsomeness in a neat little package. I'd just like to note at this point that it's my birthday in 2 weeks time. I don't know why I felt the need to mention that. It's not related to how much I want a PSP at all. It's a completely seperate thing that just popped into my head. Really. Anyway the PSP...fantastic graphics, fantastic sound, great gameplay, and just a stunning design - I might be a little biased but this thing is the business. My order at Amazon still stands, but I could cancel that if say, someone randomly bought me one. *crosses fingers*

Brekky Races
Waste a few minutes with this little racing game tearing round a breakfast table in miniature cars, but do it quickly before the lawyers for micro machines see it. Maybe I'm just a cynic but I think there may be more than just a little passing resemblance...
