Watch The Birdie
You may remember the style of Watch The Birdie from the The Victorian Period. This point'n'click game trys to teach you about the history of photography, but I like it because the python-esque animations make me giggle [subbed by Leon101].

Half point'n'click game, half science lesson, in 2K40 you must show your scientific "muscle" to win a trip to mars in the year 2040. I assume it's fictional as I think I'm going to be a bit too old for space travel in 2040 [subbed by nick s the hamster].

Rip Van Nelly
Rip Van Nelly is the unlikely point'n'click adventure based on the premise that Nelly fell asleep for 20 years and missed a gig. I really didn't see this game coming, but it's still nice to play, even if it can be a little slow, and maybe this will just be the start of hip-hop inspired point'n'click games [subbed by winniethepooh & MsInterpret].

Shrek 2 Game
Obviously this is a little late, but I hadn't seen it before, the Shrek 2 Game is a cute point'n'click game tied in with the film of the same name. The goal of the game is to help Donkey become a noble steed by finding the hidden secret ingredients (and there are also bonus items to find). A perect game for the kids to play on a rainy day [subbed by Cynthia].

Submachine Zero
There's a little submachine diversion in Jay's Game Competition in the form of Submachine Zero (game 4 on the link). A nice little bit of point'n'clickery [subbed by Nefretit].

Free The Bird
The bird from Bonte Room 2 returns in Free The Bird in which you must simply... (can you guess?)... free the bird (did you guess right?). Well I say "simply", but despite there only being a bird, a picture and a cuckoo clock for you to point'n'click I'm still pretty stuck. I'm sure there must be a setting for the clock that will help, but there are just so many possible settings and I really must start work soon. Maybe I'll have just one more try...

Keys, Keys, Keys (aka Leaving Your Room 3)
Keys, Keys, Keys is the latest episode in the Leaving Your Room series, which I believe started the "escape the room using point'n'click to find multiple keys" genre that seems to have now developed. It's the first I remember playing anyway, but then again my memory is notoriously bad. Anyway this episode features only one room to investigate, but there are 20 keys to find. I have 13 so far and it's getting tricky now, although I have seen Darth, Bugs, a Dragon & an elephant, which you don't get in every game. My one top tip is for anti-cheaters; you will have to try to cheat at least once to complete this game! Oh - and for everyone else remember to try dragging, not just point'n'clicking [subbed & created by Renegade].

UPDATE: I also forgot to say that the advice on the game page is excellent and works; if the advertising on the page is interferring with the game just reload/refresh the page and it should go away.

Toon Crisis
If you woke up this morning, as of course I do everyday, thinking "I really want to play an arcade game where I walk the photo-realistic streets of London, shooting cartoon type characters using electric sparkles that come out of my finger, whilst listening to manic mad music", then your luck is in with the arrival of Toon Crisis. Phew! I am definitately addicted to this [found at jay is games].

Panoramic 003
Panoramic 003 is a very quick and simple point'n'click room escaper, that will probably take you less time to solve than it took me to write this sentence - i.e. not very long [subbed by eb & nick s the hamster].

The Likebetter game is just a little bit different. All you have to do is choose between pairs of pictures, picking the one you like better (geddit?), and the game then does all the work, trying to guess facts and personality traits about you from the choices you have made. The more pictures you like better, the more it thinks it knows about you, and it's all very addicting. Start clicking on pics now, and click on the brain when it turns pink - that's the point at which it thinks it knows something [via Red Ferret].

UPDATE: Hmmm... it seems to freeze after a while and you can't pick pictures anymore - I think this might be so you register (either that or my browser's broken).

ANOTHER UPDATE: It still freezes now I've registered. Perhaps my browser is broken.

YET ANOTHER UPDATE: Thanks to Rubeczech who emailed the likebetter team to tell them about the problem. They say they have reconfigured their server and it should be working now :o)

The Office District Adventure (TODA)
In The Office District Adventure (TODA) you are trying to inflitrate the different departments of the office, and recover the secret documents. Obviously you'll be doing a lot of point'n'clicking and puzzle solving to do this, which is just the kind of thing we like [subbed by winniethepooh & Lost_Enigma].

How Safe Is Your House?
In "How Safe Is Your House?" you have to escape the house, but the door is open - simple! You don't even need to kick the door down! Just the sort of simple game I need first thing in the morning. It's not quite that simple though as this game is trying to teach you how to secure your house, so you'll need to point'n'click the window shut, hide your cash, blah, blah, blah. As the game goes on there are more and more things to secure on each new level, it's still very simple though, just remember closing the door is the last thing you do each time. The time limit only really started to catch me out towards the end of the game and I think that's only because I'm feeling a little slow this morning [subbed by feeder].
