Cauchemars Episode 4
The cute cartoon graphics of the Cauchemars series return in Cauchemars Episode 4. Get those kids point'n'clicking; not yourself obviously, you're far too grown up to be playing this kind of thing. I don't know enough French to be certain, although that voice over guy is excellent, but I think the point of the game is to escape the prison [subbed by Mantari & winniethepooh].

If you've got a leaky tap (or faucet as my US-UK dictionary informs me), and you know how to find them, then you should hire, the Waterbusters!. Cue Graeme singing the A-Team theme music for no good reason... Anyway, back to the game... Waterbusters is a cursor key driven point'n'click game in which you try to save water around the home. A great little game for the kids to play [subbed by winniethepooh].

Stella Artois L'Etranger
Step into Le Cercle Bar et Brasserie, a classic bar set somewhere in La France, and try out the barman's challenge of pouring the perfect glass of beer in Stella Artois L'Etranger. The first challenge is to select the right glass (not difficult when one of them has "Stella Artois" written on it), and then get the pouring of the beer just right; selecting the inclination of the glass and so on. This second part is quite hard, as the controls seem to go a bit weird and I think it might be a bit buggy if you ask me (that's my excuse anyway). My "buggy theory" was vindicated when the game got stuck in a loop and made me watch the same beer being poured three times. Fortunately though I find the pouring of beer mesmerizing [subbed by JhInG].

The Second Door
After the note I got the other day about the upcoming release of The Second Door, it came as no surprise to receive another semi-cryptic note last night (I do enjoy a good cryptic note) telling me that The Second Door is available as of today. Time to unpack, and dust off, your best brain puzzle fans! Here's that email in full for you:

I need your help, the time has come again. The First Door failed, the people chasing me found me first. This time things will be different, this time things will end another way. The Second Door will open. A new path will be revealed. Please, find me. Solve the puzzles once again. Each door will contain a picture, a riddle that you need to solve to open the door and move on. Nothing will be hidden in the source code and the pictures do not need to be altered. Again, all the answers you give are there to help or hinder. Some will lead you to my new location, some will lead others away from me. This time we will succeed. With your help I can escape those chasing me. The Second Door opens, the quest begins anew. This Monday morning everything restarts. Find me again...

I haven't quite worked out the point (geddit?) of Reliz since the text at the begining of this point'n'click game, where the goal of the game is probably all explained, is in Russian (?), which I'm not too good at (ie I don't understand a word). The game is based in a house, and looks great, but I have not found an external, locked, door yet, so I'm guessing we are not escaping the house, for a change, so my bet, for now, is on it being something to do with the locked chest under the stairs [subbed by MsInterpret & winniethepooh].

Monster Tracker
In Monster Tracker you must point'n'click your way around a spooky house tracking down all the monsters inside along the way. A perfect game for the kids to play, and the rest of us if we're completely honest with ourselves, in the run up to Halloween [subbed by Misty, Ducky632, kelly, Greg, MsInterpret & K. Engels].

Site Update : What's Forgot?Having read the feedback on the new "What's Hot" and "What's Not" lists I've just updated the way that they work so they are based solely on user ratings, ie. if a game has a rating of 0% it is definitely at the bottom of the list, if it has 100% it is at the top. However I've restricted the inclusion of games to those with 50 more votes, so new ones do not jump automatically to the top or bottom of the pile, and a reasonable amount of opinion is canvassed before they can appear on the lists. Currently 33, of the 973 games posted, have 50 or more votes. I've also added a "What's Forgot" list which shows the 10 games with the least number of votes, so hopefully even forogtten games get a vote once in a while and eventually get 50 or more votes (thanks to Andiar for this idea).

Onamis 2: Le Conteneur
Onamis 2: Le Conteneur sees you frantically point'n'clicking around trying to escape some sort of container (yes, I did use Google to translate the title), driving yourself mad, only for you to discover that you do indeed have a screw loose (play the game to see how bad my pun is). This great looking game, with some nice sound effects, is the tricky (well I'm stuck) follow up to Onamis [subbed by Nicop].

Tribute to Grow
Tribute to Grow is... er... a tribute to... er... Grow. Everyone seems to be having a little trouble finding the correct order to point'n'click everything in to complete it though, so get cracking and see if you can't help each other out [subbed by Raeden & oxyacetylene].

Robin Hood Games
Robin Hood Games: A collection of fine looking games (only one released so far) to run alongside the new Robin Hood series on the BBC. Game one involves a little bit of arcade archery action. Let me know if you get this to work and you are outside the UK (work's fine here in the UK for me), the last BBC game had an annoying UK only restriction [subbed by Nefretit].

Eternity Mystery
There seems to be a total of 3 games (there are actually 4 links once everything has finished loading, but one really doesn't look like a game) within Eternity Mystery, but I don't really understand any of them. I got killed by some sort of demon on the castle one though. Which was nice. Perhaps you can make some sort of sense of them with your point'n'click skills [subbed by JhInG].
