Really Fowl Play
should be struck off the register of cool point'n'click
games for the appalling pun in it's name, but I find the music curiously catchy and the graphics rather stylish so I'll let it slide for now.
An interesting idea this one, and I've signed up to check it out - play monopoly "live"
- with GPS fitted to real life black cabs you pick a cabbie and pit him against 5 other cabbies. If they 'visit' your properties you rake in the cash, not real unfortunately, but you get the chance to win your mortgage paid for you for a year. That's a prize I could dearly (and I mean dear
) do with [subbed by chris from ttr2
The Don't Click It
website is all about designing a web interface that doesn't require clicking, just mouse movements. I've a feeling this is going to be counter-intuitive for most of us, it's getting to the stage where I'm going to start trying to click wastepaper baskets in real life soon...
By all accounts (thanks to everyone who submitted this
) The Escape
is a bit of a b**ger of a point'n'click
game. Personally I haven't even had time to start it yet so I'll have to take your word for it for now.
won't make your embarrassing pictures
any less cringeworthy but it will make them look like polaroid snaps, which of course are never
It's a very long way off being part of the Lazylaces musical Friday, but I'd just like to say that this week I am mainly chilling out to The Magic Numbers
. I highly recommend them to you too. If they're chilling me
out this week
, they've got to be good.
Except for the lack of an Apple Mac in the room, Just Another Escape
, is exactly what it says it is. Another point'n'click
game where we try to escape the room. But that's what we love isn't it? Kudos for the anti-cheat device though - did you find it? [subbed by think~pink & kimi
Important: As always, making sure your anti-virus software is up-to-date is recommended before visiting gamershood.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that Praticamente Invisibili
is in Italian, which going on my past form probably means that it's in Hungarian. Anyway, my language dyslexia aside, this a very nice little point'n'click
game - a tad short, the ending is somewhat disappointing, but the journey is rather enjoyable.
Strindberg + Helium
are one of the strangest double-acts around
. While you might be pondering upon the deep philosophical mutterings of Strindberg, I'm thinking what a cute little critter Helium is. I mean, how can you not like him?
First up a quick apology: Sorry if there have been no posts for a little while, sorry if I haven't replied to your e-mails, and sorry if I post something you've submitted over the next few days without acknowledging you. I've been a teensy-weensy bit busy these last few days, including at the weekend (don't go there), and I will be for the rest of the week. Despite the disorganisation though I'm going to try and squeeze a few posts in. And with that apology I'm going to get on with it...
Le Building is a funny little film, lifted from the merely amusing to the truely awe-inspiring by some totally bonkers music (it really kicks off when the cat hits the pizza-guy). I heartily approve of anything that makes me start doing funny Russian style jigs around my living-room on a Monday evening.
game where you position chairs? It sounds like it might be a school assembly, but Vestibular Unisinos
is one of the best looking, and sounding, games you'll find at the moment, and most frustratingly I'm stuck on level 2 (pictured) [subbed by nitro, hewitt, kat & kimi
Update: ok, it felt slightly random, I'm not sure I could recreate it, but I've got passed level 2 now and I'm stuck on level 3.
Update 2: Ohhhhh....seemed to be to do with those little puffy clouds that appeared when I was shaking the bush - got back through level 2, and I've now completed level 3. *all done* That was nice.
The Secret Garden Of Mutabor
is a rather unusal point'n'click
game, with some fantastic graphic designs, and innovative, or at least interesting, usages of the flash medium. If you love hunting in the wastepaper-basket for your clues there's the possibility that this might just blow your mind. *plush* [subbed by nail
