Island Escape your plane has crashed on a tropical island and you and the other passengers are lost (no, not that kind of lost). You must find a point'n'click way to get off the island [subbed by Stewart].

Escape From The Room Of Rainbow from the game's title (durrrr) fortunately the gut reaction of any point'n'click player is to escape from any given room they might be in. So that's sorted. Only trouble is there doesn't seem to be much to click... [subbed by Lisa, Ross, carm & Stacey].
The First Door" series has proved immensely popular (and some would say immensely difficult) with puzzle fans so those of you who have to buy your hats in extra large to keep your over-sized brains warm will be pleased to hear that the next in the series, The Locked Box, is out soon. I'm sure another cryptic note will arrive in my inbox when it actually starts so I'll let you know more when I can [subbed by The First Door & Allegra~WickedFanOne].
Aunts And Butlers is a text based adventure (old skool), not my normal kind of thing at all, but the name got me interested and once you start playing it's rather a spiffing (that's me getting in character) adventure. The commands are all very logical (look, go, etc.) and you can die in various, and amusing, ways, but just type "Undo" and you're all set to continue. Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to get rich Aunt Cedilla to write you into her will...
Dressing for dinner! It's pretty good dressing, to be fair, but you do wish you had a bit of salad to go with it, and one or two more courses. Alas, you've been a mite strapped for cash lately and it's been a tricky thing keeping the old wolf from the old door. This is why it's so important for you, the Hon. Ampersand Fodge, to be on extra-top, supra-gentlemanly form when dear old Aunt Cedilla - dear old un-inherited Aunt Cedilla - arrives, wretched poodle Gladstone in tow; and why it's so thick that all you've got to wine and/or dine the old plague with is a bottle of balsamic vinaigrette. Perhaps you'd better not ask her to stay for supper after all. There is a knock at your front door. You absent-mindedly down the vinaigrette, and wipe your mouth on your cuff.[subbed by Sade].
Vision Museum is the latest point'n'click game from the Gotmail Crew, released hot on the heels of The Scrapper. This would normally be excellent news all round, but the load times on this one are enormous (that's if it doesn't crash part way thru like it did for me a million times), and are a sour note on what is otherwise an excellent game once you finally get going. Anyway if you have a bag of patience and something time consuming to do while it loads give it a go [subbed by Michael Merry, carm, chuck, MsInterpret, Mantari, Oo, U2isdebest, Ross & Ray]. UPDATE: Use http://game3.gotmail.jp/VisionMuseum/ for faster loading [thanks Mantari].
The Terrific Menace Of The Invaders From Audiogalaxy is a nicely designed, lengthily titled, point'n'click game, previously only available in Italian, now released in English. Curiously when it was only available in Italian I could never get it to load properly which is why I've never posted it before, but now it all seems to work fine. You'll still need some patience for the large number of load screens, but with this much story, and graphics this good, the reason for them is self evident. Anyway, the story... Turin 2010. How original: an alien spaceship is approaching Earth. A beam fired from this interstellar craft hits the home of an unassuming boy, abducting him and his computer. Onboard the spaceship he awakens trapped within a strange sealed transparent cell, destined to unravel the terrific menace before him. To stop the invading aliens and their musical evil plan (to enslave all humanity of course) our young hero will have to undertake an adventure through time, visiting musical legends in Turin, London, and even the legendary Woodstock.

PiPi The Jumping Bubble is an insanely cute arcade game, featuring an insanely cute little bubble, which goes "weeeeeee!" in an insanely cute way. Yes folks, in case you had not guessed, this game is insanely cute. The idea of the game is to get PiPi to jump higher and higher, using the bubbles as bouncing points to boost you upwards, collecting bonuses along the way (much like Winterbells which you may remember from the end of last year). I managed to get up through the time warp thingy (pictured), passed the wastepaper balls, and... er... right back to start. At that point I had to give up as my mouse hand was getting tired, but let us know how you get on... [subbed by HunterThompsonWanabe].
The Scrapper is the latest addition to the awesome Gotmail.jp suite of point'n'click games, and if you are all sad and depressed that this will never be as good as the earlier games (cheer up sadster), there are little scraps (geddit?) of the older games contained within for you to get all misty-eyed and reminiscent over. As always the aim of the game is to escape the room, which makes ducking under the door to get in at the beginning the act of a point'n'click masochist. Fortunately for us I'm sure that describes us all... [subbed by Michael Merry, Nicop, CountPondus, f_raze, Mantari, Pahsimeroi, Helanren, nina, Oo, U2isdebest, laserleaser, jas & carm]. PS. I believe the next Gotmail game, Vision Museum, is out on Wednesday.
Esklavos: A). It's a bit Wogger-esque (well it is, ish, I would say) and B). It sometimes shows up as "bandwidth exceeded" - the curse of a good game - but it worked the couple of times I tried, so try later if it doesn't work first time around for you. I would add that this point'n'click game has some very fine sights and sounds, including: A). A bizarre techno intro - nice, and B). I think the characters are speaking Spanish is a squeaky voice, but it really made me think, in my warped mind, that they were going to make the Jawa ootini noise at any moment - WARNING: Geekoid level of Star Wars knowledge required to understand that last reference [subbed by laserleaser, vivienne & Cruzinn].
