Wogger Mini 50
We've finally reached the golden anniversary of the Wogger Mini Series in Wogger Mini 50. Do you think this could be then end? Or not?

ClickClickClick is a ridiculous "game" that has a lot of click, but very little point (did ya see what I did there?). Yet somehow you are still compelled to at least give it a go. The idea of the "game" is to just click as much as possible, with your total of clicks going into a grand total for your country, you can then see how your country is doing in the leader board. Ridiculous [subbed by karstenmp].

Google Home Page Themes
I've been a bit slow on the uptake this week (I've been busy) and only just realised that Google have introduced an option of "themes" to their personalized homepage now (sign up for an account if you don't already have one). Now the web page that you visit most often (after Lazylaces of course) can have a relaxing peaceful colour scheme of your choice. Lovely. Mine's pictured above (click on it for a bigger view). Great you think, that's nice. Then you realise that the picture changes over the course of the day in accordance with the local time. That's the point at which the g33k genes get all excited. Expect time dependent style-sheets all over the internet by this time next year. I'm already thinking about it...

IQTest.dk gives you a series of simplistic (at least graphically) logic puzzles to point'n'click your way through which, at least in theory, will measure your IQ. There's 40 minutes to answer 39 questions so unless you're feeling particularly speedy set aside some time before starting to play [subbed by winniethepooh].

MindScape starts off as an average little platform arcade game where you jump around collecting candy. Albeit one with a manic soundtrack and evil monkeys (not of the spam variety) to avoid. Then you get to the first bit where the gravity changes. That's when it get a bit more special as your mind tries to understand where exactly you are going on screen (don't bother is my advice - I gave up trying to work it out as my head was spinning and somehow I still got all the candy). Then at the end of level one there's a silly game of stealing a key from a pink bunny rabbit (pictured above) which, as we all know, is always a fun thing to do. Following that level 2 has constant gravity changing platforms in a robotic world, and that's where I left the game for now, before my head started spinning so much I couldn't write this up for for you if I continued [subbed by Zyzor].

Esklavos C2
The first chapter of Esklavos was a beautiful point'n'click game, but as far as I can tell Esklavos Chapter 2 is an arcade game, using the cursor keys, in which you swim under water trying to maintain your oxygen levels whilst avoiding various obstacles and missiles. I say "appears to be" as it could turn into a regular point'n'click once you get passed the swimming bit but I haven't yet succeeded in doing this without coming to a nasty end [subbed by Lambda].

UPDATE: OK. I've got passed the swimming bit and now there's a point'n'click puzzle involving a ray of light and some carving type things... I can't vouch for what's next after this, as obviously I'm stuck on this now, but anyway my point is all you point'n'click addicts shouldn't be put off by the arcadey (spelling?) bit at the beginning.

Head-Fi has your standard "escape the room" point'n'click game plot, but in a weird twist of logic it's not keys you need to collect to get out, it's sets of headphones. Four sets to be exact. Well why not? [subbed by winniethepooh].

Bloons World (Coming Soon)
News of the upcoming Bloons World should give you plenty of time to resign from your day job so that you have more Bloons playing time available. You know it makes sense. They're only going to sack you for not spending any time on work anyway. Bloons World promises forums, a level creator, Bloons goodness and more [subbed by vmklover].

The Black Lodge
After releasing a teaser a couple of weeks ago Grant writes to tell me that The Black Lodge is out today for all you puzzle fans to unleash your url changing, source code viewing, Googling brains on. And it has a nice soundtrack for you to listen to as your brain implodes as well... which is nice. Grant insists that it's not an entirely Twin Peaks themed game, but you could have fooled me after playing through the first few levels... pictures from Twin Peaks, puzzles with Twin Peaks answers, and Peaks-esque music playing in the background the whole time. Not that this is a bad things in my eyes - in fact far from it. Anyway here's what Grant has to say on the game:

Well, we finally got around to finishing our third game, The Black Lodge. This one is a bit different than our other games. There is no ramping up of difficulty, the puzzles and riddles were placed semi-randomly throughout the game. The game is also very loosely based around Twin Peaks, not all levels are related to Twin Peaks. Also, be sure to have your sound up (not necessary for solving any levels) for the full experience. Good luck to all.

Nekoryokan 3
The long lost Series Of Nekoryokan makes an unexpected reappearance for us to point'n'click around in Nekoryokan 3. Despite the absence though the kitty cat is still there to give the game it's trademark feline presense [subbed by winniethepooh].

Crazy Doors Of Rainbow Colours
Escape From The Room Of Rainbow proved to be an immensely unpopular point'n'click game with Lazylaces visitors, so I wasn't gasping in anticipation at the prospect of a sequel, but the follow up, "Crazy Doors Of Rainbow Colours", while having a bizarre name, does seem to be a much better game from what I've played so far, so I recommend putting on your "second chance" hat and giving it a go. I'm going to get back and finish now to see how it pans out [subbed by Nicop].

UPDATE: Completed it and loved it. A much, much better game.
