Hopping Ham & Kapabo comes Koala's Journey 2006, a very cute point'n'click adventure in which you must guide a little koala in his journey from Australia to Finland in time for a Christmas party with Santa. That's episode 1 at least, I've only just started playing so I can't tell you what's in episode 2 yet - that directs me back to episode 1 currently, I assume you have to unlock it by completing the first one, so I better get busy [subbed by sopdox, JhInG, Nefretit, Anjie, belindaloo, MsInterpret, camecha, winniethepooh & nick s the hamster].
James The Christmas Zebra you play James, a Christmas zebra (of course) who's special power is being able to swing from the stars. Your task is to gain as many points as possible by collecting the Christmas cookies, but be careful of the exploding Christmas puddings which lose you points. The game is clearly insane, but fun, maybe a little slow, but the intro is worth it just on it's own (don't skip it). My top tip is to try swinging above the clouds for extra cuteness [subbed by nick s the hamster].

Grow goodness in Grow V1, can you point'n'click the items in the correct order to complete the game? Actually maybe I'm just lucky today (pops out to buy lottery ticket just in case), or maybe there is more than one "good" ending to the game, as I managed to complete it first time through which is just unheard of for me. I did go back and play again so I could see some of the entertaining animations involved with getting it "wrong", but I didn't find another "good" ending though, so maybe I am just lucky [subbed by JhInG, Laserleaser & Ryx E.

point'n'click-wise, for me, as I first slept off the 22 hours I was awake on Friday (it sounds more fun than it was - most of them were at work), and then completed my Christmas shopping. Just lots of wrapping to do now, and loads more work, before the Christmas break (I can't wait). Anyway enough of what I've been up to... Game of the weekend seems to have been Diversity which loads of people were kind enough to send in, but I'll hand over to Helanren who wrote up the whole thing for me (thanks - I am super busy this week):
A really nice P'n'C. Not only do you have to find your way out through several rooms, but along the way you have to make choices as to how you do that, either in a "good" or a "bad" way. How good you are is shown in a slider below the game. The choices will determine the rest of your life: although solving the game is done with all the same clues for all different story-lines, the more "black"choices you have made, the more desolate your environment becomes. Weather turns bad, things fall over, furniture breaks down, the music goes off etc. Really fun to replay and see how all the scenes change!I couldn't have put it better myself, especially as I haven't had time to play yet! Right, I'm off to finish three projects in a day, and work out why you seemingly can't buy wrapping paper online [subbed by Nicop, Helanren, karstenmp, Naomi, winniethepooh, JhInG, Ashley, MeMyselfandI, m, Ariadne, Thyrfing, MsInterpret].
Mission In Snowdriftland is a platform game featuring a cute little snowman, with new levels being released advent calendar style. Cute. If the logo isn't enough of a give away, you'll soon guess from the game-play that this one is sponsored by Nintendo [subbed by f00].
Gray Ruins is one point'n'click game that's freaking me out. I haven't worked out the goal of the game yet (escape to somewhere less weird is my guess) as after accidentally closing the browser I had to start again and I can no longer get passed the cat (pictured). Random clicking seemed to do it last time, but it just doesn't seem to work anymore [subbed by MsInterpret].
Locked Forever series, in Locked Forever 5 you must point'n'click your way around an isometric room to find ten keys to open the door and escape to somewhere with more angles [subbed by karstenmp, Ariadne, Nicop & winniethepooh].
Yoko Ruta, but it's not a point'n'click game. This is a platform game, although a little bit of strategy is required in working out how to solve each level. That's if the music doesn't send you insane first [subbed by winniethepooh].
Winter Workout. The game reminded me of the old skool "key bashing" games, normally involving athletics or skiing if I remember rightly, on the early home computers (yes - I'm that old). Anyway whether you remember playing games controlled like this one or not, if you're going to play it a lot make sure you have a new keyboard, and some new fingers, on your list for Santa [subbed by nick s the hamster].
Micky's Adventures has nothing to do with a Disney mouse, is in French, and uses keyboard controls to move you around (the [SPACE BAR] seems to let you interact with things). It also looks and sounds great, but beyond that I really don't know - it turns out I don't know nearly as much French as I thought I did. Anyway, it looks to me like there is a nice game in there somewhere so give it a go and see what you make of it [subbed by BeccaS]. PS: I almost forgot. To start the game click once to get the pop-up window then click "nouvelle partie" to start.
