PACE - Pursuit Accross Europe
Back before I got addicted to point and click games racers were my game of choice, from Pole Position on the Atari, all the way through to Metropolis Street Racer on the Dreamcast, and just about every incarnation of Gran Turismo on the PlayStation(s).

So, anyway (*snaps* out of dreamy like reminiscences), my point is that it was with this in mind that I eagerly loaded up PACE - Pursuit Accross Europe a freebie web based racing game from BMW. And I wasn't disappointed. The racing in the game is pretty good, especially considering cursor keys aren't the most responsive way of controlling this kind of game. And although the "in race" graphics aren't the best (they're fine, just not great) the cut scene graphics are fantastic, with a nice stylised look. Add to that an atmospheric sound track and you're immersed. The only minor down point is that you have to register to progress any further than the first couple of levels, which I know bothers some of you, personally though I don't mind this. All in all a great game [found at Jay's].

Stealth Hunter
Stealth Hunter come with an array of keyboard commands (no point and click here) and a large dollop of Metal Gear Solid, through 22 levels of stealthy infiltration, neck snapping (possibly not one for the younger kids) and explosive planting [subbed by winniethepooh].

At World's End
At World's End is a promo point'n'click game/interactive web site thing promoting the new Pirates Of The Caribbean film. The not very difficult goal is to collect the coins from the pirates for Jack, and in the meanwhile (and no doubt this is the creators ultimate goal) you see short trailers and peeks of the film-to-come [subbed by atir].

Makibishi Comic
Makibishi Comic takes some truly stunning Japanese comic art (I would go so far as to use the phrase visual feast), some nice sounds, and plenty of things to point'n'click, and wraps it all up into a game that's an absolute pleasure to play. I think the goal is to find some hidden characters, but really this game is about the journey, and not the destination. Oh, and crucially for your enjoyment there's a Japanese and an English version [subbed by winniethepooh].

When you start to play TRGEsc it would seem to involve escaping a particularly sparse room, however after a little frustrated point'n'clicking around the walls, ceiling, floor, etc, you'll soon find there's more hidden in here than first met the eye [subbed by Nicop, Lisa & winniethepooh]

Dasyutu is in that category of point'n'click game of "this might well be easy, but because it's in Japanese I don't have a clue what's going on". You really have to like point'n'click games to play this one [subbed by winniethepooh].

The Mysterious Anno Chest
Way back when there was a great point'n'click game named Siegburgspiel. The graphics were great, but it was made very tricky for non-German speakers like myself by the profusion of German text that was all too essential to understanding what was going on. However now there is The Mysterious Anno Chest, the English translation of the original Siegburgspiel, to make it accessible to all us non-polyglots. I should be happy, but somehow it takes some of the esoteric edge off of the game for me. It could be I'm just weird though, I'm sure the rest of you will love adventuring around this game that is promoting the German town of Sieburg [subbed by Caro, MsInterpret, B.J, WhiteCloud, Oo, sopdox, Ariadne, im4noles2, Sheila, Fingerclickingood & j].

Planet Green
The Planet Green Game is an eco-friendly point'n'click game with a whole heap of mini games thrown in. Gain points for being "green", feel worthy, laugh at the naivety, gasp at the US bias, be stunned at the game sponsor, but above all do the planet a favour and take some of the lessons on board [subbed by Nid].

The Room (HBB)
I could have sworn I'd posted The Room (HBB) before, but I couldn't find it when I searched back through the vaults, a task made a little trickier by the fact that there are quite a few games posted with the phrase "the room" used in their description. Who would have thought it?

Anyway (repeat or not), The Room (HBB) is a short, but not at all sweet (there's a guy hanging in the cupboard so you might not want to play if you are squeamish), point'n'click room escaper. Don't blink, you might miss it [subbed by Kate, carm & winniethepooh].

UPDATE: Doh! It is a repeat. Thanks to LxO for finding the original.

It's been an age since I posted anything in Lazylaces' Techie Category, but I thought I should share Paint.NET with you, if you weren't aware of it already. People have been telling me about this free piece of software for a while, but it wasn't until I was stuck on a machine without any graphics manipulation software earlier today and I needed to produce a screenshot for Lazylaces that I got round to using it. And it's a beaut. Lots of features for manipulating (or even creating) pictures and saving out into a variety of formats, totally simple to use (it took less than a minute to work out everything I needed to do) and all for free. Great if you are looking for that kind of thing, or maybe next time you are playing one of those puzzle games that requires you to do stuff with image files. It's for XP/Vista only, but that should cover the majority of PC users, and all you Mac-ites are probably using something 5000 times cooler already.

EscapeDaHouse 2
I'm on a PC with no graphics software this morning so no screenshot for this one (yet), but if you take a look at EscapeDaHouse the look of EscapeDaHouse 2 really isn't that much different. The self explanatory title should also tell you that the goal of this point'n'click sequel mirrors the first part as well. You need the code from the end of part 1 to start, if you don't remember it I'll post it in the comments [subbed by franki1368 & winniethepooh].

UPDATE: Screenshot added - finally.
