Treasure Hunters (a tie-in with some television series on NBC I have never seen) has expired so you cannot win the cash prizes anymore, but the game is still worth playing for the challenge (unless you are totally money driven of course). The game is a curious mix of point'n'click (with some nice graphics and sound), and puzzles (involving some web searching), and really works quite well. The idea of course is to find the treasure, but you'll have to satisfy yourself with the virtual, rather than real, kind. Note registration is required if that puts you off playing a game, but it seems harmless from my experience [subbed by eljordo & gordon].
TV Guide (UK) web site is not a guide to the transvestites of Great Britain, but is a very useful (if you are in the UK like I am), and neatly implemented, on-line televsion guide. All the major channels are shown, including the popular satellite/cable channels, with the option to add other channels of your choice, in an easy to read and understand time grid, showing 3 hours at a time. Now I can finally optimize what little televsion viewing time I get so I can view the maximum number of crime dramas (they are so addicting). A very useful site to bookmark.
Speed Test is a nice little graphical flash tool that will measure the speed of your internet connection for you, for both downloads and uploads, if you are interested in that sort of thing (I am sadly), or if you want to check whether the figures your ISP gave you are anywhere near accurate [via op-pop].
point'n'click games people. At first they were happy with trapping us in a room and making it tricky to escape. But increasingly these days they are putting ten locks on the thing so that requires us finding 10 keys. Latest in line in this genre is Escape 3 which is damn tricky. Can you find all the keys and escape the basement? Can you even start? [subbed by Britchick, Helen, Kelly, Matt, Misty, winniethepooh & Mara].
The Legacy Of Pliskin returns, with some nicer graphics, in the logically titled point'n'click sequel The Legacy Of Pliskin 2. My only top tip is totally unrelated to completing the game - leave the game for a while to make him play with his PSP. Weird [subbed by winniethepooh, sopdox, Nefretit, Lost Enigma & Kara].
Swiss Thomas got me addicted to his version of Mahjongg Solitaire, and I'm already addicted to sudoku (wiki description), so I can see a whole heap of time disappearing into his version of sudoku [created & subbed by Swiss Thomas].
Grow Nano V1 replaces the speed clicking action of Grow Nano V0 with a hunt'n'click style to test out your point'n'click skills. Play all the way to the end to get an animated reward [subbed by Videocrazy, Tracey & crazy_nuts_2006].
Grow Series continues with a fun little diversion Grow Nano V0. It's more of a speed clicking contest than a point'n'click game, but I'm sure my shiny new laser mouse is more than up to the job [subbed by Lost Enigma].
Dracula's Riddle you have to "defeat" the evil count Dracula. To do this you have to venture through Transylvania by solving numerous riddles (more than 80). Some of the riddles are puzzles, some are brainteasers, for some riddles you have to use google to get knowledge etc. To solve it all intelligence, creativity and persistance is required [subbed by Daniel].
The Game", well Kevin writes to tell me that Part 2 and Delta are now available. Prepare to be very confused. He also included some links that might be useful:
Easy Escape is the easiest escape the room style point'n'click game ever. In fact it's not even really a game. Prepare to be disappointed [subbed by Priesty].
