James The Space Zebra
As always with the James The Zebra Series the latest episode, James The Space Zebra, is a natty little arcade game. You use your cursor keys to control James' jet pack in order to collect cute dark matter, and avoid asteroids as you orbit the moon. But my favourite part of the whole game, once again, is the beginning, where they discuss the design of the game [subbed by nick s the hamster].

SeeD is not so much of a point'n'click game, it's more of a point'n'click story, and all in all it's quite relaxing and very undemanding. So sit back, watch and listen, and prepare for some easy mini games during the story interludes [subbed by anon & winniethepooh].

Smithy's Quest
In Smithy's Quest you must guide little Smithy, using your trusty cursor keys (and [space] for actions), in that most noble and honourable of quests... to retrieve his Golden Spork. A fun game, but I do recommend making use of the "music off" function [subbed by winniethepooh].

Wogger Mini 53
Have you heard the buzz? The latest episode of the increasingly inaccurately named Wogger Mini Series, we're up to Wogger Mini 53 now, is available to play today. My thanks to HTW for the bad "buzz" pun. Finding witty repartee to describe these got difficult about 45 episodes ago... [subbed by hellek28, HunterThompsonWanabe, some1 & vmklover].

Damn Birds
Damn Birds is a silly game with a silly premise, but, surprisingly, it has quite an involved set of strategy options. It's also very offensive to animal lovers - you have been warned. Having said all that I did think it was a fun time waster (don't get me wrong though - I'm not an animal hater - I just know silly fun when I see it). Anyway, in the game you play as a statue in a park where you've stood for years, facing the shame of birds pooping on you, until one day your patience comes to an end, and you decide to take revenge on those Damn Birds. And luckily you're a statue with a gun (and the ability to go shopping). The aim of the game is to stay clean, protect yourself from poop, and to shoot those Damn Birds [subbed by Ivy].

Toy Store Escape
Toy Store Escape is a point'n'click game with a self explanatory objective. As always, of course, when trapped in a toy store (or indeed anywhere), you can't just walk out of the door, there are a whole series of objects to find, and puzzles to solve, first. Fortunately we like that sort of thing [subbed by Mark].

Roman Mysteries
Roman Mysteries is a new series of Roman themed (who would have guessed?) point'n'click games from The BBC. Only part one is available right now, with another 4 levels being released/unlocked over the coming month. The game looks and sounds great, as you might expect from The BBC, and whilst there's quite a lot of text to read through, which their games frequently suffer from, this time it's not too intrusive (imho) and actually adds to, rather than detracts from, the game play. The goal in this episode is to find a ring, good luck [subbed by Biggs].

Escape Paris
The cunning pun of Escape Paris, a game that doesn't look at all hastily slung together, is that you are trying to point'n'click Paris Hilton out of jail. Geddit? Topical, huh? [subbed by Escaper].

Before I go any further a couple of warnings about Dekigokoro:

1). I have a strong hunch that at some point there might be something rude hidden in the game, I haven't seen anything like that yet, but the rest of the game is just mad enough to make it a possibility. I suggest finishing the game just to make sure before letting the kids play (there is a strong likelihood that you will never do this).

2). This is one of the most infuriating games ever. It takes ages to progress and it's all too easy to get sent back to the beginning. Don't play this one if you are at all stressed already and are looking for something nice and relaxing.

Right, warnings over. Now let me say that I hate this game. So why post it? I hear you ask. Well I don't see I should be the only one with Dekigokoro inflicted upon them. Share my pain. I keep having to play "just one more go", but it's just horrible. The basic premise of the game is to drag and drop puzzle pieces to complete the jigsaw. But of course it's not just a regular puzzle. It's one where the pieces are blank. Great. Add to that the fact you get skull and cross bones penalties once in a while (I haven't worked out what you get these for but I suspect it's for taking the "logical" approach to a puzzle and doing the edges first - like I have in the pic above) and it turns into a real stinker. Then on top of that it breaks into time controlled mini games once in a while, which have no instructions, and if you loose them it undoes your puzzle and sends you back to the beginning. Arrrrrrgh!

My tips for the mini games: Drag the sumo guys to the green exit at the bottom of the screen, and match up the red & black guys with the corresponding background pics. I've worked out that much but it doesn't stop me hating it [subbed by anon].
