Site News : Alternative Addresses RevistitedA while back I mentioned that if you were ever having problems visiting this site on the regular site address:

http://www.lazylaces.com

You could always use the alternative site address:

http://lazylaces.brinkster.net

Well that still remains true, but after a little bit of work I did yesterday the regular site address should always be working wherever you are in the world (including Denmark which curiously always had problems before this update).

It turns out that some idiot had not changed the lazylaces.com domain name registration, and it still had the old DNS server information on it, despite numerous warnings from my web host Brinkster that they were changing name servers. The miracle was that it still was working at all, even if it failed some of the time (although yesterday it wasn't at all which was what made me investigate it). And in case you were wondering - yes, I am the idiot that should have changed it. What can I say? I'm kind of busy and it just got forgotten. Doh!

Anyway, the net result of all this is that you should all find the regular site address working now (the update was made 24hrs ago now, and should have had time to filter around), and also the submission page should be working again as it knows where the email server is now.

Cheers,
G :o)

Murder Escape
Murder Escape is a nice looking point'n'click game, even if the premise behind it is a little bizarre: you are stuck in the apartment of Harry Jacobs, the man you have just killed (!), as your wife was cheating on you with him. You must escape before the police arrive... [subbed by MsInterpret & JhInG].

Nocturnal Letters
Nocturnal Letters is a creepy, and in places very dark, point'n'click game. You play Ivy, who lives with her family in a house in the forest where things have been rather strange lately. Your task is to help Ivy find out what is wrong, and uncover the awful secret [subbed by Meeker].

Goodnight Mr.Snoozleberg
Oh goodness, have I really not posted Goodnight Mr.Snoozleberg already? Let me correct that now... In this lovely little series (4 episodes) of games you must point'n'click (or drag'n'drop) items in the right order, so that Mr.Snoozleberg does not wake-up whilst he sleep walks [subbed by badbatz, Lisa, JhInG & karstenmp].

Calvin & Hobbes Alive
Calvin & Hobbes get an extra dimension, in more ways than one, in this twisted little animation: Calvin & Hobbes Alive [via m&c].

Assault
The whole stickman-shoot-em-up-point'n'click thing isn't really my bag, but I know a lot of you like them, and I get sent quite a few. So, just for you here's Assault 1 and Assault 2. Note the second one is very short, and neither are suitable for children [subbed by nick s the hamster].

Attack Of The Sprouts
You might think it's still too early for Christmas games, but I'm very excited about Christmas this year (I'll be in DC), and I did establish that the Christmas season started on November 1st, so I feel justified in posting one of my favourite games from last year that I got hold of just a little too late to post for Christmas '05...

In Attack Of The Sprouts you have to stop the world's most evil vegetable leaping into your mouth, by-passing your, thankfully, sprout free Christmas dinner. If one too many get through you've had it! Featuring some nice and silly graphics and a brilliant intro song [subbed by Carol, Sassy & Andy L].

Super Monkey Poop Fight
I'm not normally one for platform games but I had to post Super Monkey Poop Fight as it's just so ridiculous...

You control a small monkey that needs to fight off the other monkeys while finding bananas. This is done as in the real world with poop trowing (yes you read correctly). At some point you are not only fighting the monkeys, but the evil zoo keeper will also try to catch you to get you to his lab.

You control the monkey with the left right arrow keys. By pressing A you trow a poop, or if you are walking while pressing the key, then you start running. If you press S you jump, and if you press the up-key while jumping, then you can grab on to the branches and vines.

You can even add it to your Google Homepage - click here to add it [subbed by Cornish Scott].

Lazy Widget
For all you Mac OS X users out there Ed has created a simple little Lazylaces widget for you to plug into your Mac OS X Dashboard. Nice [subbed and created by Ed].

If only music media had been working on my PC yesterday, the Lego Beer Song would have made a perfect Friday song. Mind you, it's not so bad for a Saturday either...

VG Music
It time to catch up on a couple of those music links that I couldn't do yesterday, so... VG Music is a huge archive of music from video games so you can relive all those "final level" and "game over" moments [subbed by nick s the hamster].

Saga
Just a quick one-game-only update today as it's a busy Friday for me (getting to the weekend will be a huge relief). Also there's no music for Musical Friday as just about every media file type I've tried on this machine I'm using today seems to be blocked! Boooo... not fair! I guess I'll just have to hum quietly to myself. Anyway, on with the game for the day...

In Saga you start with a crowded park scene, and you have to bring the objects and people together (drag and drop), in the correct combinations, until you manage to clear the screen. Give it a go and see how you get on, I managed to clear a couple but I need to get back to work now, if you get really stuck JhInG has a walkthru, which I'm sure will get posted in the comments at some point today [subbed by Jack R & JhInG].
