Stickman Murder Mysteries
Young allegra has mailed me once again reminding me how cr*p I am at getting round to posting some of your links. To make up for my laziness, I not only post her favourite game(s), Stickman Murder Mysteries, but her e-mail in full:

Subject:
YOU STILL HAVENT POSTED THIS YET!!!

Message:
STICKMAN MURDER MYSTERIES!!!

the very first p&c game (besides myst) which got me absolutely hooked about a year ago...or was that two...??

anyways, they're a troop of simply drawn (yet its a very GOOD kind of simple!!) and slightly (or not so slightly) humerous pnc's ... despite the title, theres nothing to be afraid of-- no faces jumping out at you, no ominous music, and certainly nothing to escape. these are MY HERO.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE POST THESE THEY DO NOT EVER GET THE CREDIT THEY DESERVE!!!

The Last Tube
Missing the last tube in the game, is mainly more scary than in real life, as in the game you have limited time periods of adventuring (it's point'n'clickesque, but you have to use that archaic keyboard thingumy on your 'puter which makes it a bit different) before something nasty catches you, rather than in real life where you retire to the coziness of Maccy D's on The Strand (it's open 24 hrs) during the twilight hours, where it might be scary, but it has the benefit of being tasty as well. Not that that has ever happened to me.

BTW: This is now 6786 in a series of film related games, proving once and for all that you can no longer release a film without an on-line game associated with it.

Cobaias
Cobaias would be a much easier point'n'click game if it loaded properly (it seemed to take a million attempts in Opera - it does work eventually though) and:

Se eu falar o portuguÍs (thanks babelfish)

But you don't want easy, do you? You want a challenge. You want to stretch your brain. You want adventure. You want your finger-tips to bleed from excessive point'n'click experimentation. You want to suffer to gain results. Nothing is too much...

...you want a walkthru, don't you? ;o) [thanks Susi K].

Sahara
Well it's finally Friday, which at Lazylaces means I normally post some musical type links as I like a bit of a bit of a singalong and dance to celebrate the coming weekend, but this week I don't have anything for you. I don't even have any quirky, arty-type, flash animations for you with witty, urbane, comments from yours' truely to make them even more poignant and wonderful. All I have is a collection of games. You're upset. I know you are. Well you could pretend just for me. Humour me. Go on...

....anyway...

First game of day is another film tie-in (part 6785 of a series). Sahara sees you performing that old film staple of "do I cut the red wire, or the blue?", in a bomb diffusing kind of way. I'll call it a point'n'click game, but really it's like just one puzzle from a point'n'click adventure, and all you hardcore addicts will be disappointed by the lack of wastepaper baskets, Apple Macs, and waking up in darkness in a confused state. You'll still like it enough to try to be the first person to comment though, I know you will. Go on. I dare you.

P.S. Keep the game links coming obviously, but I'd love you loads if you did have anything vaguely unusual and/or animated and/or musical you'd like to send me for next Friday. The e-mail hyperlink is in the bottom-right of every page as usual. Ta.

Darkness Episode 2
Part 2 of The Darkness, which you may remember point'n'clicking your way around earlier this year. This time the location changes from a house to a hospital, but you still wake up confused in the dark, and feel the need to escape, so don't worry about it all being too new and different ;o)

Store Wars
Not long ago in a supermarket not so far away...

Puns galore as a young Cuke fights the Dark Side of the Farm in Store Wars (Episode IV?). They won me over with Chewbroccoli [thanks Sy].

Escape From 1428 Elm Street
Expect lots of blood in a point'n'click game based in the home of Freddy Krueger. Well, I say 'blood', if you expect lots of red scribbles that look like they were done in MS Paint you might be nearer the mark [thanks hewitt].

Temple Of The Spinning Shaggy
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.

Dona's Room
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)

Dark Water
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.
