To-Sen-Bo 2
To-Sen-Bo 2 sees the cat from To-Sen-Bo 1 returning to prevent your escape from yet another room, although it's a slightly better drawn room this time, and once again you have to point'n'click your way passed him. This one is tickier than the last though, invloving more than one puzzle, and the ability to turn around! [subbed by Nicop, winniethepooh & koko].

To-Sen-Bo 1
To-Sen-Bo 1 might be in Japanese but both the idea of the game, and actually completing the thing, is very easy. You must escape the room by using your point'n'click skills to distract the cute cat, who, despite outward appearances to the contrary, has a vicious streak, and is liable to throw his claws around if you try to get passed him [subbed by winniethepooh].

Dead Man's Chest
Dead Man's Chest is half promotional website, half point'n'click game, to promote the Pirates Of The Caribbean film of the same name. For the first part of the game you have to collect all the "plunder" in order to enter the Turkish Prison (you'll probably find the "World Map" link in the top right useful). Beyond that I'm not so sure, although I do think there is a second part to the game, but some sort of glitch meant I lost all my plunder and got thrown out of the prison. Hopefully you have more luck. One thing I did like about the game though was that it got me practising for International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Ahoy, me hearty! Shiver my timbers! *joy* [subbed by winniethepooh].

Blast OffBlast Off is a point'n'click game of attrition (I used a dictionary for that one) as you oh-so-slowly work out the correct order to click the astronauts and controls in at the launch site of a rocket, so that it can blast off safely. This makes for a long drawn out process of trial and error (at least for someone of my limited patience with this style of game), and all against the clock too. Of course you could also see it as a game of patience as you wait for some intrepid soul to post a walk-through (or cheat as it's more informally known). Which ever approach you opt for though all that experience you gathered from playing the grow and hapland games is bound to come in handy (although I always find these things quite random) as the idea of the game isn't vastly dissimilar [via nitro 59].

Image Puzzle
Image Puzzle is an on-line puzzle where all the clues and answers are contained within images. I think the puzzles are slightly more complicated than the name though, although not the first couple which are a breeze [subbed by James].

Samsung Superman Returns Challenge
Samsung really do seem to have a thing for squeezing their products into point'n'click games. Which is nice for us. This one is a tie-in with the Superman Returns film, so you'll be using some super powers as you coincidently stumble across Samsung products... er... I mean try to find the covert listening devices planted by Lex Luthor [subbed by Jen].

I suspect I will be posting more on Scapegoat in coming months, and I think it will be one for you puzzlers. For now all I have is a mysterious note telling me that the puzzle officially starts next month, but clues will be left on the website up until then. The first clue has been posted today, and it will change every few days. It's all a bit cryptic at the moment though, and it looks like it won't start making sense for a while. A long term one to watch [subbed by anon].

Absolut Search
Well I hope your clicking finger is feeling strong today after plenty of point'n'click practice. It'll need to be for Absolut Search which will get you in a clicking fenzy. The idea of the game is to find and click all 82 bottles (or bottle shapes rather) of Absolut in the picture in 2 minutes or less. Using the click wildly and everywhere technique I managed a total of 58, can you do any better? After a couple of attempts I found that I had a sore finger and I really wanted a vodka [subbed by winniethepooh & Nicop].

The First Door
Puzzle fans may like to try out The First Door, it's a URL changing puzzle, although it is a little different from the norm, having no source code clues, and requiring no graphics manipulation software. Personally I haven't got too far, being stuck with some broken dominos (see above), which hopefully will make more sense to you when you get to them than they did to me. Here's what I think is an official description of the game that got sent through to me:

A new quest began at 12 o'clock tonight called The First Door. A series of tricky puzzles where the answers of them link up to form the idea of the quest: Find the person who needs help: me. I am hiding somewhere in the world and only through the answers to the puzzles can you find my location! I need to be so cryptic in case those who are looking for me find me first. No hunting in the source code or need for photo manipulation software, all you need is the Internet, some skill and the ability to learn things you didn't know before. Please, help me.

I've had curiously few World Cup related links so far, but Brazilname usefully answers the question "If you played for Brazil, What would your name be?". Well I had been wondering... [subbed by Simon].
