Harry The Hamster is aimed at kids, has oh-so-cute graphics, a surprisingly catchy music loop, and keyboard controls, so you might think it's an arcade game, and not worthy of your point'n'click skillz. But you'd be wrong. Guiding Harry in his adventures, from his cage in Britain, around the world, to collect all the pieces of the golden wheel is the most gaming fun I've had in a long time. Well, since this morning anyway [subbed by Lisa].
Mapion is a service that uses a database of local information, combined with a phone that includes both GPS and an integrated compass, to provide realtime point'n'click data to users. Point the phone at a building, and an icon will appear, click on the icon and you can see what services, such as restaurants, are inside. I'll adopt an awed voice at this point - do you understand what this means? Real life point'n'click. Think of the games potential. The only problem is that the service is only available in Japan, where else, so I'm thinking level one in Tokyo, then level two in London, and maybe New York for level three.... [found at engadget].
Taken is a short flash film. Those with weak hearts, or children standing next to them, should look away now [subbed by werewolf].
A la recherche de Josephine" est un beau jeu de point'n'click, que je ne comprends pas entierement, car je ne parle pas francais tres bon, mais il semble placer dans une horloge de coucou, et est tres mignon [soumis pres Badbats]. Update: I should have thought of it eariler... this is a Canadian game so there's an English version too! Personally I'm enjoying practising my French [merci beaucoup Keric et Hannah].
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:
