Beans is a short, but savoury (pun alert!), point'n'click adventure. Post a walkthru, I dare you... [subbed by HunterThompsonWanabe].
Pepere.org is home to a suite of unusual, but rather nice, arcade games, and their latest, "Crazy Mammoths" (click on the pic to play), is no exception. Controlling the game is "easy", or "totally unsatisfactory" if you are a control freak (don't look at me like that), as you only need your [SPACE BAR] to jump and that's it. There are no other controls. Simple (?). The aim of the game is to slide your mammoth down the ice slope the fastest (yes I am aware it's virtually June and ice slopes are in short supply - do I look bovvered?). Insane, but possibly dull? Then try the four player game, which will have you, and three friends, crowded around your keyboard (breaking it). Please forward submissions for keyboard repairs to Pepere.org, and not me. Ta!

Seeds Of Imagination is an addicting flash toy type thing with a lot of beauty, but very little point. But since when did having no point stop these things being fun? Anyway, the aim of this thing is to grow a flower, or a garden of flowers if you get keen, by talking to your planted seed, and encouraging it to be a huge healthy plant of beauty. Type in what you want to say to your flower(s), or use the hints if you are feeling shy and don't really know what to say. It's all very bizarre, but very soothing, especially with the blissed out soundtrack [subbed by Sara].
The Apothecary of Ostia is the nice looking, nice sounding, but easy to play (it's intended for kids though), second instalment of The BBC's Roman Mysteries point'n'click series [subbed by sassymom08].
Incognitus Asleep in the Deep sees you trapped in a room that's filling with water and has faulty electrical connections on the wall. Using your point'n'click skills to escape the room as quickly as possible would seem to be a wise course of action... [subbed by winniethepooh, Eric & some1].
TLFMER 2 our goal, once again, is to escape the room, which is a goal we all know and love from many a point'n'click game played. This one has more pictures of ducks than your normal game though, and why not? I'm always bemoaning the lack of duck pictures in these things. Anyway, I have only just started playing this one, but it's obvious, even to a fool like me, that at some point we're going to need a door or window or some such, unless we find some magic powers to get us out. And finally, if you like this game you can also try TLFMER or Head Fi from the same author [subbed by Pahsimeroi, some1, Sophie & winniethepooh].
Wogger Mini 56 [subbed by vmklover, HunterThompsonWanabe, anon, some1, mle, Mantari, U2isdebest, cyberjar88, suki & Char].
Old Castle, find an artefact, and leave a dangerous vault, all with only your trusty point'n'click skills to guide you. Before all that though, there's the small matter of getting into the castle to attend to... oh, and waiting for the thing to load, which seemed to take ages, for reasons I couldn't work out [subbed by Escaper & winniethepooh].
The Vision Test is another one of those seemingly easy multiple choice quiz games (a bit like Impossible Quiz). Easy until you get one wrong and look like an idiot that is. What can I say? I got distracted, it wasn't my fault. Honest. Anyway, the graphics in this one are terrible, but aesthetics aren't really why you play these kind of games, and anyway it's more than made up for by the best soundtrack ever. I am going to be singing that all day now [subbed by nick s the hamster, Kix, Cruzinn, Videocrazy & Alina].
JB (creator of the Jack French games) of the start of his new point'n'click game series, "Agent Scarecrow". Judging by the links on the page - not all active yet - there are going to be three chapters in total, but for now just Chapter 1 - The Birth Of Scarecrow is a available to play. And I gather from the, frustratingly "to be continued" style, end of this episode (I couldn't resist playing thru to the end before I posted) there will be two versions of Chapter 2 when it comes out, depending upon who you decide to call in the final sequence of this chapter, which I guess means we will all be playing thru this one at least twice :) Anyway over to JB for his description of the game:
Agent Scarecrow - Chapter 1 - now available. Mike is your average 20-year old guy. One day, Mike is mistaken for a secret agent and gets involved in a crazy adventure. Along the storyline, Mike gets to travel around the World... with little time to make friends. Agent Scarecrow, is a "choose your own" actionventure game. i.e. it combines point-and-click elements with fighting and shooting scenes. Also, your decisions will dictate the course of the story.[subbed and created by JB].
Escape The Dark Room starts as a very dark room indeed, and then once you find the light switch you'll find that it's even more aptly named than you first thought. Cunning. Based on the Thai Horror film "Shutter" (there are various screams and noises as you stumble around the room to remind you of the horror credentials), this point'n'click game has the standard escape the room goal [subbed by anon & Clemson Chris].
Miestas (aka. Menulis 2) gives us more of the chilled out surreal adventuring that the original Menulis introduced us to, and that, my friends, is a most excellent thing. Once again the puzzles, graphics and soundtrack are superb, generally bizarre, and have a unique style all of their own, making the whole thing a pleasure to play. Cursor keys to move, [space] for actions. [subbed by Sophie & anon].
