I've been a fan of the Flickr service for a while now, and now there is a great game called Fastr based upon it. It's very similar to Guess-The-Google, you have to guess the common theme word from a group of pictures, the pics are revealed one by one, and the sooner you guess the common theme word the more points you gain. Also with Fastr you can see your scores alongside other folks currently on-line which adds a nice competitive element to the whole thing [subbed by Nid].

The Hills Have Eyes Game
The Hills Have Eyes Game is probably not one to share with your kids. Featuring, as it does, shooting attacking mutants. You might even want to skip it if your scared by that sort of thing. Anyway for the rest of us it's time to crank up the volume, turn down the lights, and get your favourite teddy bear to hand for reassuring cuddles...

In the The Hills Have Eyes Game you try to escape from a mineshaft, shooting the mutants that try to stop (and eat!) you. The game is more Doom, than point'n'click, although it's not a million miles away, especially if you've played some of the scary ones. There are a few bonus items to collect, especially useful are the batteries which you can use in your flashlight, if your flashlight batteries run out the mutants get you. Apparently mutants have excellent night vision. Eeeeek!

One further word of warning - the controls involve using the mouse for looking (and shooting), and the cursor keys for movement. If you are playing on a laptop, like me, you might want to leave this one until you are back at your desktop machine, unless finger pain is your bag [subbed by Debra].

Cursor War
Thought your cursor pointer was safe? Well Cursor War has just been declared. The opposing side has great jumping skills, iron girders, guided missiles and so much more on it's side. All you have are top mouse *skillz* from all those point and click adventures you've been playing. Good luck [subbed by mtf, TheBear & coolgirl].

England Academy
I'm sure there are a large number of you that don't know what the Six Nations Championship is, maybe you don't even know what rugby is (*shame* on you), but I can still recommend the BBC's England Academy game. There are 6 skill tests so you can train in all the basics of rugby (unfortunately for my French, Italian, Irish, Welsh & Scottish friends you have to play as England for this bit - the rest of you don't have a team in the championship at all!), and then you can pick your own team, and play your own 6 nations. Superb. Not my normal cup of tea, but it's so well done I love it.

Qwizard 2
As you might suspect from the name Qwizard 2 is the sequel to the hugely popular Qwizard. Time to get puzzling again people. Fortunately for folks like me who are still stuck in a world of googling after the first game you don't have to have finished all 100 levels of the first game to embark upon the next 100 [subbed and created by Greg & Lola].

From Heaven To Hell
From Heaven To Hell isn't a point'n'click game for the kids, or the squeamish, as the liberal amounts of blood you find and spooky sound effects suggest (no spooky music though), and when you get towards the end there's a fair amount of violence too. The best thing about this game for me though was the atmosphere. I found myself with baited breath when I opened every door expecting the worst. Unfortunately the worst thing about the game is that it is far too short, but it this only billed as "chapter 1", and I was left wanting to see more [subbed by brian & ~kj~].

The Search
Tha language barrier on The Search is just a little bit too high to make this point'n'click game particularly fun. Can anybody give us a clue as to what is going on? [subbed by mystery].

Mini RoomMini Room is not a room filled with Minis like you might be hoping, well maybe that's just me, but it is an "escape the room" style point'n'click adventure in a miniature size. Which is nice. The size makes it a little tricky (What do you know? All that spam I get was telling the truth, size is important), but as long as you realize that if you click on the the little figure you can make them move again once they've stopped you should be ok (took me a little while to work this out - I thought I'd broken it). Also the text is in Japanese, but you can copy and paste it into your translation tool of choice which is very handy, although you can pretty much work most of it out without that [subbed by anon].

Escape The Classroom
Escape The Classroom has quite a different look and feel to your average point'n'click adventure as it's all rendered in (very slow to load - be patient) 3D. It's not going to be an easy one though, as although there is an English version of the game, you need some knowledge about the Slovak Republic to complete it. Tricky [subbed by brian].

George's Answering Machine Message
Pappasmurf (I'm doubting whether it was the real one - call me a cynic) submitted George's Answering Machine Message stating "I can't get this damn song out of my head, So I thought I'd inflict it on y'all". Now I'm stuck with it too, I pass on the pain to you all with this link [subbed by pappasmurf].
