If you didn't play it from the link in the comments for Labyrinth
the other day, try a visit to the weird point'n'click
world of the TCB Museum
today (aka the 'Things Came Up To My Brain Museum'). It's nice and simple - I've completed it with no help at all - but is a pleasure to explore [thanks allegra
The Telescope Game
involves solving, gradually increasing in difficulty, logic puzzles using vacuum cleaner parts. Fortunately it's more fun than it sounds and is even slightly addictive. If it's not challenging enough for you, try this out: Theresa who sent this in [thanks!
] is stuck on Grandmaster Level 5 and was wondering if anyone would post a walkthru? Since I'm not even sure how a walkthru for this could be written, although it has to involve co-ordinates and the words 'push' and 'suck', this is something I have to see. Go for it!
If you're the kind of person who would attend you've probably already heard about the The Time Traveller Convention
occuring at the East Campus Courtyard, MIT on the 7th of May. Then again if you're the kind of person who would attend, there's a good chance you've already attended, or indeed attended many a time before if you're the kind of person who laughs in the face of time paradoxes. Also if you're the kind of person who would attend but you're reading this in 12 years time why not pop back and attend anyway. And tomorrow. Yes, this will possibly be (or is that possibly was? or is?) the most crowded event ever, although everybody will be ignoring everybody else for fear of meeting themselves, or becoming their own great grandfather or something. Will I be attending? Well no. Not now, not on Saturday, and not a week last Tuesday. I'll be/was/am too busy spelling 'traveller' with two Ls rather than one. My head hurts [via op-pop
The final episode
of the Chauchemars point'n'click
adventures. I've split them out into different posts so that we can have seperate comments
threads - I might be crazy but I thought that might make things easier all round.
In the wacky world of blogging newer stuff comes above older stuff so if you're reading down the page be careful not to play episode 2
of Cauchemars before episode 1
. As a dedicated point'n'click
er I'm sure you'll work it out.
Cartoon-esque graphics? This point'n'click
adventure has to be easier than the last. Doesn't it? Well only if your French is better than your Japanese ;o) This is just the first episode
of 3 though so I'm sure you'll get used to it, non? BTW - Don't get too scared or the game ends.
is a point'n'click
adventure, although I'll be damned if I could work out what the objective is, but it also has a little bit of RPG thrown into the mix. The language, it's Japanese, makes things a little difficult, but the map, of all things, is in English and when you're fighting things you can clearly see you're losing 'lifepoints'. Anyway see what you can make of it. I think I was doing well until I met the dude at the bottom of the ladder in the picture [thanks Allegra
I know it's not a Friday but here's a musical link
anyway. I'm not sure if it's a sign of the modern age, or my old age, that I first hear about Morcheeba
's new album via an automatic e-mail from amazon
, but it's good news either way. Hopefully this will be what I'm listening to next week.
The DaVinci Code
puzzle will give all you point'n'clickers
a bit of a break from frantically clicking around the screen but still allow your brain to work a little. The first couple of puzzles are easy but then again the game only just starts at that point [thanks cara
"My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard
And they're like, it's better than yours
Damn right it's better than yours
I could teach you
But I have to charge"
This week I am mainly listening to Kelis, but you know by now that I'm more interested to hear in the comments what is tickling your eardrums this week. As always extra Lazylaces loyalty card points if you give a link to some audio...
The weird, and seemingly sprawlingly large, world of Time Hunt
isn't exactly 100% point'n'click
, but I have a feeling you'll feel at home there...[thanks annie
Note: I forgot to mention you have to register to play which is kind of annoying but it seems to be worth it.
A familiar style of graphics, but an unfamiliar language, unless you are
German that is, in this
diversion [thanks enkel
