The idea of Huntsville is a little different from your average point'n'click game. Here you are given the list of objects you have to collect and you cross them off your list as your find them amongst the bewildering array of items on the screen. It looks great, and is quite good fun, but the two free levels are over all too quickly, and I don't think I'd pay to play the rest. Most definately worth a look though [subbed by Goofymuffin].

7th Door
I'm not sure what 7th Door is like if you speak Japanese, but if you don't it's about the most difficult, and with all those pop-up messages, most annoying, point'n'click game ever [subbed by winniethepooh & Helanren].

Combining childish simplicity with something that totally creeps you out Braindead will leave you reflecting upon your disturbed childhood. Even if you didn't have one.

I Like Your Pants
"I Like Your Pants" is a sweet little animated song just in time for Valentines. It's another corker from rathergood. My American friends should note that here in the UK pants are underwear, and not what you call pants, which we would call trousers.

Escape To Obion IV
It's week four and Episode Four of the Escape To Obion point'n'click adventure saga. How long can they keep up this fantastic rate of producing great point'n'click games? I mean obviously I'm already looking forward to Epoisdoe 5 next week, but surely they need to take a break by now? [subbed by Helanren].

The Thief
The Thief offers point'n'click thievery in a choice of English or Russian. Remember folks thieving is bad, this is just a game [subbed by cynthia and winniethepooh].

Eternal Darkness
After the eternal darkness of the load page there is also a game of the same name in this point'n'click adventure. There is also lots of talking. Do you know possibly this is a really good game, it certainly looks great, but I'm a bit tired for this at the moment, it's been a long week. Is it really not Friday yet? [subbed by Nej].

Lazylaces comment regular Greg McKean, and creative collaborator Lola Lush, have sent me their new on-line quiz "Qwizard" (quite different to, but influenced by, Qwyzzle). How do they make these quizzes so addicting? All I was doing was playing to get a nice screenshot for you guys, and then I became addicted in the process. Extra kudos points if you can tell me which level my screenshot is from (and if your name isn't Greg or Lola).

Mahjongg Solitaire
Damn Swiss Thomas, he's got me addicted to his web version of Mahjongg Solitaire - I'd never even played any version of Mahjongg until Tuesday, and now I've had a game on the go in a background window (well actually a background tab Firefox fans) for the best part of the last 2 days. Very addiciting, but also very easy to dip in and out of while you are working. Techies will love the fact that it's written in DHTML so no plug-ins are required, what this means for all of us though is that you can keep playing even when you go off-line once it's loaded (as if you'd ever go off-line though).

Escape The Bar
This Japanese escape the room style point'n'click game is fortunately, for us non-Japanese speaking folk, available in English (click here to play the Japanese edition), but I still don't understand the game. "Escape The Bar"? Why would I want to do that? I can see in the game that the bar quite clearly hasn't run dry yet, so it makes no sense whatsoever [subbed by Beebo & Helanren].

Brady's Beasts: Monster Quest
Brady's Beasts: Monster Quest is really a very large point'n'click adventure, I feel like I have been wondering around the cemetery for an age for instance... because I have. Fortunately this whole world, well ok town, is rendered beautifully and it's a pleasure to walk around, I know some people don't like registration with games, it doesn't bother me, but it makes sense here because unless you really have huge amounts of free time (like you are skipping lectures/work/etc) you're going to want to quit out at some point and come back to the game. Although that is a bit of a wrench. The game it's self is relatively simple, although the size of the area you have to check out is quite a hindrance (in a good way), and there are several "missions" for you pick and try along the way (you can even do them simultaneously - I did by accident). What is difficult is the "sub-mission" of collecting the card deck - most of these are imposssible to spot on screen without the aide of your trusty [TAB] key. Fortunately I have no scruples in that regard. Anyway, enjoy the game [subbed by winniethepooh].

Did you, like me, make the mistake of going to work today? Well mark this date (first Monday of Feb.) in your diary for next year, as today was 'National Sickie Day'. More workers will/did call in sick today than on any other day in the year. Why don't we just make it an official national holiday and be done with it? BTW - the findings mentioned in the article are from the UK, but I think it's a safe bet that this applies the world over.
