The Asylum
In a choice of English, German and Italian languages, although definately written by Zee Germans, The Asylum, can be taken as either a very bizarre psychotherapy based point'n'click game (can you cure the patients?), or an elaborate way of selling plushie toys. Either way that crocodile is very cute [thanks Sunshine Cekala].

The Cave
Must every new film have a point'n'click game on it's web site? I hope so. Find your way around the spooky cave.

The Ringing
The horrors of traditional telephony are highlighted in this film advert for VoIP. I'll overlook the fact that network cabling looks stunningly like telephone cables, and is invariably more plentiful in your typical office, as it would slightly spoil the whole concept of the film [thanks nicki].

Dr. Stanley's House
Can you solve the mystery of what has happened at Dr. Stanley's House?

Normally when a point'n'click game is in a completely incomprehensible language (I think this one is Chinese), combined with, as in this case, the old <tab> key trick not working, I get slightly disheartened, but this one is very addicitive and I managed to get all the way through to the end. The great graphics and real sense of a hide'n'seekery carry you through, along with a suitably spooky soundtrack. Being able to read Chinese would almost be cheating. My one top tip is that the key colours match the doors they go with, despite the fact they all look like car keys...how long did I spend with my first key trying to get into the car? Watch out for the twist in the tale at the end as well...[cheers ron].

The Jedi Song
The Jedi resort to online viral advertising tactics with the Jedi Song to gain new recruits. Surely mind tricks should be enough on their own to persuade people to join though? Perhaps it is a mind trick - "La La LaLaLa" is certainly stuck in my head.

Ps. Is it just me or is there lots of Star Wars related stuff on the internet at the moment? It's almost like they released another film or something...

Fragile Circus
The surreal world of The Fragile Circus begs the questions - "huh?" and "what the?". To be filed under cool but weird.

Deka 2
If you get stuck due to not understanding Japanese whilst playing Deka 2 at least you can shoot everything in sight as you're armed in this point'n'click game...

42 Below Britain
I'm not really certain I should find this Kiwi view of Britain funny, but it contains a few humorous home truths [thanks(?) phillydad].

Apple Store London
It's only the fact that I knew my credit card would have to come out to play if I visited, that has kept me away from the new(ish) Apple Store on Regent Street so far, but I cracked last week, deciding that an iPod Mini was exactly what I needed to replace my stolen MP3 player. I've already filled 5Gb of it's 6Gb capacity (Doh!), but that's another story, what I really wanted to say is that if you're in central London you have to visit the store. It's like a geek dream made real and impossible not to browse around unecessarily. *joy*

The Sith Sense
Can Lord Vader read your mind? You better get those Jedi mind tricks at the ready if you want to try and beat him [thanks Hazel].

Hapland 2
Judging by the number of people that have managed to mail me a link to Hapland 2 in the short amount of time that it has been out (thank you all) this is going to be one of the most popular point'n'click games ever. Time will tell. Now stop mailing it to me. Seriously. Stop it. There's only so much my inbox can take and you're making it really hard for me to find all the really great deals on Rolexes I get sent.

The Bourne Simulator
A great find for me, as while I prefer The Bourne Identity over the The Bourne Supremacy, I'm a fan of both films (each making their way into my limited DVD collection), so the fact that the 2nd film has a point'n'click game attached to it, seems like they had me in mind when they made it. Nice to play, but not overly hard, you can unlock DVD extras if you're into it, and (take note here games designers) there is a choice of languages to play with.
