point'n'click activity. Escape To Obion 3 is out now - that's 3 games in 3 weeks! And it's a cracker. Even trickier than the previous two. Can we expect episode 4 next week? Surely not? [subbed by brian, sopdox, miri, angela & mystery]
The Control Panel a point'n'click game, it's far too much of an oddity to be categorised, although you will be doing a lot of pointing and clicking while you play. It makes a little more sense if you know it's by Shaun Salzberg, author of the very different, but equally as weird planets. Anyway I hope you have some success with it, personally my brain has started to leak out of my ears trying to figure the thing out [subbed by helenren].
Ouverture Facile isn't just another online puzzle game where you have to change the URL to progress to the next level, although you do have do a bit of that, this one also features some nice flash elements which really adds something to the whole experience. Oh, and it's in French, did I not mention that before? Well you might have guessed from the name anyway. "Ouverture Facile" is French for "Easy Opening", which I would think is probably telling us that the game is easy to open, but difficult to close/finish. Bonne chance mes amis! [subbed by Philippe].
BF Goodrich make tires. Sad fact fan that I am, I also know they are one of this year's type suppliers for the WRC. Unfortunately neither of these facts helps me in the company's point'n'click game, imaginatively entitled the "BFGoodrich Game", where you have to find the four tires for the car against the clock.
A Sunken Ship's Tale you use point'n'click techniques to uncover the tale of ...er... a sunken ship. Hmmmmm.... educational.
Strong Bad renaissance at the moment. Why haven't I read his sbemails for so long? Anyway I'm happy to be back up to speed - Strong Bad's technology lesson is a classic.
Yizhi as you non-english-language-phobes might guess from the name is not in English, I think it's actually Chinese. Don't quote me on that though, I've made mistakes before. Anyway the game, as far as I've worked out so far can be done even without a knowledge of Chinese, although some of the hiding places are a little tricky and small. Fortunately our friend the [TAB] key works for all you cheaters out there. Not that I tried that. Obviously. Some cheater told me. Honest. Oh before I go, as I've clearly forgotten to mention it so far, this point'n'click game is in the "escape the room" style, well "escape the cell" in this case.
Ben, creator of the superb Exmortis (play it now if you haven't already, or play it again to catch up - it first came out in 2004), apparently the sequel is 75% complete, and he hopes to have it fully complete by the end of February. I can't wait, hopefully it's as spooky as the last episode, judging by the eye candy he's sent through it certainly looks as good, if not better than the original. Here are the sceenshots I'm drooling over now:
Podstar.Runner offers classic sbemail to dowload onto your video iPod... awesome! The only thing is I don't have a video iPod... Can you play m4v files on a PSP? I don't have it with me right now to try it out, but I suspect the answer is "no". I want Strong Bad on my PSP now! Bring on Pspstar.runner! [via op-pop].
Tower? A really very nice looking point'n'click ('n'drag) adventure with some spooky, but simple, background music. Note: Lazylaces' posting of this game does not mean we generally endorse "rescuing" jewels from other towers [via nordinho].
Messiah From Darkness" in "Exodus Core". In this point'n'click adventure (actually you use the cusor keys, [SPACE] for actions, [SHIFT] to run) you guide a young Japanese lady around a deserted deep-sea biosphere, well I say deserted, I have seen 3 dead bodies, a tentacle creature thing hanging out of the ceiling and a woman with some kind of mutating face, so there's no need to feel lonesome.
Messiah From Darkness is the point'n'click sequel to 12 Doors, which means another great game that you don't quite understand, at least if your only language is English anyway. Both Jay and I are stuck at the crazy omnipotent god with all the arms (pictured above) - has anyone managed to progress beyond this? [subbed by jay].
