Fresh Arrival
The aim of Fresh Arrival is a neatly cool one - to bring one awesome thing to their readers every weekday, in just about any category you can think of... including movies, music, photography, art, home life, websites, services and much, much more. But am I being greedy, but what if I want more than one cool thing a day? And what if I want cool things at weekends too? That's not too unreasonable is it? Maybe i'm just cool-deficient and far too needy. Anyway check it out [subbed/run by richard].

Nicolas' Weird Adventure
So the basic premise of Nicolas' Weird Adventure is that you have to have a point'n'click adventure to get the escalators in the Shopping Mall working so that you can escape, because obviously you can't just walk up them when they aren't working, it's not like when stationary they become something that is almost exactly like stairs. Anyway I'm ranting slightly, but that really is weird (hence the name I guess). If I had that kind of attitude in London I'd be permanently stuck in Waterloo Station and I'd never get to work. Hang on a minute. On second thoughts this doesn't sound totally unreasonable. I may be spending some quality time in a railway station tomorrow [subbed by Aurora].

The Adventures Of Josie True
I'm fairly certain that The Adventures Of Josie True is trying to teach me something through the medium of the point'n'click game, I refuse to be taught though, but because I have p'n'c addiction I can't not play. Dammit. Oh, I already knew the square root of 81, actually this is teaching me nothing, hooray! [subbed by jackie k]

Steppenwolf
How have I not posted Steppenwolf already? Anyway, here it is now, a wrong righted. It's not exactly point'n'click as you have to use that keyboard thingumy, which, as a point'n'click devotee, you normally ignore as much as possible, but it is an adventure, and it's huge: 6 chapters of 4 episodes a piece - that's 24 episodes in total maths fans. Happy adventuring [subbed by TeJay, Buster H, Helga, Castor, May & BadBatz].

Vanilla
Hone those point and click skills with vanilla, which doesn't involve adventure, but does involve clicking in the right place at the right time to make your plant grow (having the right, i.e. largest, screen resolution helps too though). Remember you have to grow straight and true, otherwise you turn to stone. Pardon the sideways screenshot, but it didn't quite work the right way up [subbed by jackie k].

Attic Escape
In the never ending quest of the point'n'click adventurer to escape every possible room, building and town in existance, the lack of a game that lets you escape from an attic is finally dealt with by the aptly named Attic Escape. You can breathe easy now. My screenshot will be of no use to you in the game - I only did it because I could [subbed by Ufuk Altug (!)].

Mucha Lucha
A totally original point'n'click game in English? Pinch me I must be dreaming. That's exactly what Mucha Lucha is though, and it's a beauty, with a real sense of humour. You play both the wrestler "The Flea", and his dog "Masked Dog", swapping between the characters as necessary to accomplish different tasks, the ultimate goal being to rescue your wrestling chum "Rikochet" from the clutches of the "Evil Dentist Of Doom". Brilliant.

Update: I went back to the game and I've completed it now - how much fun was that? A great little game. Anyway all that wrestler action has now made me want to go back and re-read some Strong Bad emails. Awsome!

Madonna: Hung Up
I'm not a huge Madonna fan, but I quite like Hung Up, that's not why I posting this link to the video though. What I couldn't believe when I saw it, was that part of it (pictured) is filmed in the street right outside of my office - in fact my office is just over Madge's shoulder in the picture above. That explains the day the road was all closed off with film crews wondering around (I didn't see Madge though).

The Right Mix
The idea of The Right Mix is to control the barman and mix the perfect Cosmopolitan. Personally I scrapped the game and invented "The Lazylaces" which is 50-50 Vodka and Tequila, which killed the barman when he drank it ;o) [via a welsh view].

Flying Spaghetti Monster Game
In one of the most preposterous game premises ever the Flying Spaghetti Monster Game see you trying to shoot your pasta tentacles at the fleeing population of earth in an effort to convert them to "Pastafarians". And if that's not weird enough for you, try reading about what a Flying Spaghetti Monster actually is [via a welsh view].

Puzzleland
Puzzleland has been submitted to me a few times and I'm not really sure why I've never gotten round to posting it before. The idea of the game is to use your point'n'click skills to help a little man called Mahogany in his adventures by creating a safe path for him to traverse. The concept is kind of like Hapland. There's even a walkthrough if you are a dirty rotten cheat [subbed by Sentinel, Mz Dimplz, Nadif, Lynn & Sweetcorn].

Cageling
Cageling is a large point'n'click adventure with some nice puzzles for you to ponder over, and the graphics are great. Unfortunately, once again, the language barrier adds an additional level of difficulty you probably weren't looking for [subbed by sunshine].
