The FAQs for The Temple Of The Spinning Shaggy
miss out "why?", which is odd as it's the first question that sprung to my mind.
I've been off-line, and off work, for a couple of days as I've been shacked up in bed feeeling ill. Thanks though to my work inbox showing no mercy today and getting me right back into the swing of things. The most exciting thing today was the majority of The Met
congregating outside of my office in flak jackets, cordoning off the street, and getting us to evacuate the building. The "suspicious" package across the road turned out to be nothing dangerous, which meant I both escaped a nasty death, and got out in the sunshine. All in all a good day.
If you are one of the few point'n'click
addicts that hasn't mailed me a link to Dona's Room
, this post means that you don't have to - step away from the send button now. Thank you all ;o)
Continuing the new trend of issuing point'n'click
games to promote film releases, Dark Water
does it's best to freak you out, and make you want to watch the film of course, whilst getting your mouse finger clicking.
Note: I hit a total non-ending whilst I was playing which I hope just meant I 'lost', if that was the actual ending you're not going to be very happy with this one.
Hate is a strong word, which shouldn't be used lightly, but I can say with confidence that I hate that f**king crazy frog
. Making an appearance at least twice in every television ad-break, topping the charts
, and, God help me, I even know people with the ring tone, the frog must die as far as I'm concerned. So a game where you get to shoot him
is a good thing which I thoroughly endorse (my top score is 88 BTW).
provides music with games, which as far as I'm concerned ticks two of my boxes when I'm looking for links for you guys on a Friday [thanks think~pink
An animated chilled out tune
for a Friday about a young boy going to work with his dad (you may also remember this
from the same animation stable).
The thing I like best about Dr. Metoro
is starting in the darkened room at the beginning. I was convinced for a while that it just wasn't compatible with my browser or was broken or something. With a bit more random clicking around than even in your normal point'n'click
adventure though I soon got started. Nice one.
Update: Oh....I've already completed it. A good challenge but a pretty naff ending. My only real tips are you have to stand in the right place to make the silicon mix, and the chess puzzle is very solvable with a little trial and error even with no real chess knowledge (well maybe just a little).
Dare I ask it, but does this
adventure remind you of the lengendary Samorost
, albeit it in a much more barren fashion? Whether it does or not though, I'm not sure where the "Indiana Jones" part of the game comes in, I mean it's good, but it's not like you're lashed to a lorry with a whip, or chased by a huge boulder down a tunnel...*shame* [thanks Lynn
Update: As always make sure your anti-virus software is up to date before visting a gamershood link, their site is notorious for giving out rather more than you bargained for, but it's nothing good AV software can't stop.
I'm not sure what you would call rubberfish
, fetish flash? Whatever, it's entertaining, but vaguely uncomfortable, to watch.
