Goldburger is a point'n'click game in the style of Hapland. Well sort of... It's a lot easier, still fun though, but the concept is very similar. Get everything lined up 'just so' to complete the game, which in this case means delivering a delicious burger [via flabber].

It's hard to accurately describe ARC, but it's a beautiful game. Rings appear on screen, with little stars orbiting around them. Make two stars collide, and little musical notes play while sparkle bursts move around the rings in question. If a sparkle burst hits another star, more music and sparkles ensue, and as you combo further and further, the music builds up as a soundtrack to the graphical fireworks in front of your eyes. That's the best description I can come up with. Try it and see what it's all about [via flabber].

Click Drag Type
I don't know why I haven't got round to posting Click Drag Type before, maybe it's because I'm lazy and it just sounds like so much effort. I mean, Click, Drag and Type? That's one more thing than point'n'click! Anyway, the aim of the game is to solve the puzzles by, guess what, clicking, dragging and typing. And it's not actually too much effort when you try it [subbed by Rhonda, Nej, and many others who aren't in my inbox anymore...].

Quandary of the day is - who is cooler? Strong Bad or Homestar? I always thought it was Strong Bad, no question, but now I'm really getting into Tweesercize, I'm not so sure. Homestar has certainly got the moves.

Rate My Turban
I have no idea why, but turbans always make me laugh. I fully respect Sikhism, or indeed any other religion where turban wearing is the norm, but turbans always make me giggle incessantly. Is that weird? Probably. Anyway if you are as strange as me, Rate My Turban represents may hours of disturbing chuckles [thanks SJ].

Roman Rumble
In Roman Rumble (a bouncing squirrel game - funny looking purple squirrel though), you have to bounce along the tops of several Roman columns and collect coins and other goodies... all the while dodging the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. Or, rather, the swords and sharp pointy things that come hurling out of nowhere at you [subbed by ferrgus].

Siren 2
There's some really creepy point'n'click weirdness in Siren 2. This is definitely one to play alone, late at night, with the sound up, in an abandoned mansion, after your car has "broken down", and the children from the village have been mysteriously disappearing, and old man Caruthers, the fairground owner, has been seen out late at night carrying an axe...*ahem*... anyway... What text there is in the game (documents you find, and what have you), is in Japanese, but that's probably a good thing, as I'm sure it would only make the thing even more spook-tastic if you actually understood what was said, and it has spookiness in bucket loads anyway [subbed by eb, winniethepooh & Daremaster Spoodle].

Jigsaw's Escape
Jigsaw's Escape is your standard "escape the room" style point'n'click game. Except the room is filling with deadly nerve gas (although I haven't seen any evidence of this yet). And there are grenades strapped to the roof. That's just not friendly... [subbed by princess & winniethepooh].

Terracotta Murders
Leon & The Terracotta Murders is the, not quite as weird, but still pretty strange, follow up to the very bizarre Leon & The Magic Sturgeon. According to the game notes there are over 30 minutes of sound in the game, which I guess means it's quite a long point'n'click adventure, but having played for a while I'm guessing most of those 30 minutes are the soundtrack to you trying to get the tricky movement controls to do want you want. Other than those it's a great game [subbed by A Fellow Fan].

Trapped Episode 1
In Trapped Episode 1 you have to escape the room, by using your finely honed point'n'click skills. And when I say finely honed I mean finely honed, some of the places you have to click are tiny, and don't think that the [TAB] key is going to save you either [via nordinho].

First of all I warn you not get too frustrated by Enschouse it's not in English, at points it's very hard to control, and there's no real end. In fact I couldn't get passed the sliding puzzle at all without using the [TAB] key to find a hidden hotspot. So why am I including it? Well it looks great, and I really wanted it to be a full blown point'n'click adventure rather than the dead end it turned into. Hopefuly the author will come back to it and finish it off some day [via].

Footnote: A big thanks to for entertaining me this Sunday and letting me catch up with some Point'n'clickery I obviously missed first time round (even if some of the advertising it carries is a little dubious).

Haunted House Massacre
Haunted House Massacre is not a game to let the kids play. That much you may have guessed from the name. It's a very simple to complete point'n'click horror based adventure, with some nice atmospheric bits (play with the lights down, and the volume up). The major let down is that you can complete the game without even visiting the majority of the rooms that build the tension up, even if you do though the game is over all too quickly [via].
