Black Room 3: The Hotel
Black Room 3: The Hotel is the third in, what is now, a trilogy of escape the room type games. What is that hypnotic noise in the background though? It kind of reminds me of The Hypnotoad [subbed by vmklover].

I'm quite enjoying these "defence" games (see Desktop TD), they quickly and easily fill up a little bit of free time. Onslaught is the latest, but probably not the last, that I've been sent. It looks a bit basic at first, but gets better as you get into it. It is let down by a lack of sound though [subbed by avs5221].

Nicholas' WeirdAdventure2
The first weird adventure for Nicolas saw him trying to escape a shopping mall. In Nicholas' WeirdAdventure2 thing's don't get any less weird once he's in the outside world. Cursor keys to move, [SPACE] for actions, etc [subbed by Blazel].

BTW: When did Newgrounds do that new pop-up, but not a pop-up, thing? I think like it. Very two point O. I think some people are going to have a few links to updates though (I've found one already)...

Search for Bourne
Take your Google Account (or create one) and join the hunt for Jason Bourne a multi-media hunt, with, of course, prizes to be won, around the internet to promote the latest Bourne film... Bourne Ultimatum [subbed by f00].

Desktop Tower Defence
As little creeps invade your desktop you must quickly scribble some defences to stop them reaching the other side in Desktop Tower Defence - a little shoot em up arcade game that's been around for a while now, but is still very addicting [subbed by f00, Lexi & Regina].

SSSG: Sneaky Land V2
Sneaky Land V2 looks remarkably similar to the original Sneaky Land but gives you lots more to discover [subbed & created by selfdefiant].

Concert 3
As with the other Concert Games the latest episode, Concert 3, sees you searching for your lost ticket so you can go to a concert. You really should be more careful. For reasons that aren't clear to me there are loads of cats in the game, but I quite like that, and my favourite cat in the game is pictured above [subbed by Nicop].

The Stupidity Test
Don't know just how stupid you are? No? Then why not quickly click your way through The Stupidity Test? It'll give you a percentage score of how stupid you really are. Handy! Go on, give it a go, you'd be stupid not to... 100% stupid that is... stupid! Er.... I think that's enough stupid references for today Graeme... [subbed by vmklover].

Last week on Lazylaces Musical Friday I asked for you to send in your musical links with a Friday vibe to share with us all, and some of you were kind enough to submit some for me to post. So I'm posting some of them here today for you all to share, apologies if I don't include yours, I either didn't have enough space, thought it was awful (and not in a comical way that would amuse us all), or I just plain lost it in amongst all my other millions of emails... anyway...

First up is Fat Boy Slim's Weapon of Choice, featuring the superb dancing talents of Christopher Walken, from Michelle. An oldy (on the internet time moves fast), but a goody, that I haven't listened to since the days of StickBoySlim. Watch both for "compare and contrast" fun...

"Fat Boy Slim's Weapon of Choice"

Next up EL's listening to a track I'm rather partial to myself, the rather excellently lo-fi, "Kings Of Convenience - I'd Rather Dance With You". Thanks for this one, I love the track, but I'd never watched the video before...nice moves:

"Kings Of Convenience - I'd Rather Dance With You"

Boo takes a different tack on Musical Friday with the truly awful, but disturbingly addictive, Korean rap (er... say what?), "Ice Cream," by MC Mong. It's, how shall I put it, different, and the video is, well, see for yourself:

"MC Mong's Ice Cream"

Nicola goes for safer ground, and sends out some Friday love to us all, with Belle & Sebastian's - Funny Little Frog, a band I keep meaning to listen to more of, but which somehow I keep ignoring (except for now):

"Belle & Sebastian's - Funny Little Frog"

My ears can't even comprehend what's going on with Michelle's suggestion of Yma Sumac's Gopher Mambo, but this is the kind of madness they crave on Friday... hey! mambo!:

"Yma Sumac's Gopher Mambo"

For this week Char (thanks for last week Char) recommends Justice's - D.A.N.C.E, a French electro house band, much mentioned in the British press this last couple of weeks, and as a result I'd been meaning to check them out:

"Justice's - D.A.N.C.E"

And one, non-musical, link from the irrepressible nick s the hamster, a self developed flash movie, "Bob The Atom", which has just left me scratching my head and pondering one of life's great questions... WTF?

Finally, what am I listening to this week? Well very specifically I'm listening to Bloc Party's Helicopter (Whitey version), which I have become addicted to, but the only link I can find on-line to that version is's 30 second sample, so instead I'll include a YouTube link to the original track (hunt down the Whitey version if you can though - it's even better):

"Bloc Party's Helicopter"

BTW: For future reference if you do have a submission for Musical Friday (and they're always welcome), if you use the words "Musical Friday" either in the title or blurb of the submission it'll make things easier for me to find, and post, it. You know how lazy I am...

Thank you to everyone for providing our Lazylacers' Musical Friday Compilation soundtrack. Dance at your desk. Groove in the garden. Mambo(!) down the market. Samba on the school-yard. Letting down your hair at the end of a long hard week is the whole point of Musical Friday. I'm just a bit worried that MC Mong is the one I keep replaying... :o)

Destination Elsewhere
Are you a puzzle addict in need of your latest fix? Well Destination Elsewhere should keep your url changing, answer Googling, source code viewing urges at bay for a while. The initial levels (i.e. the ones I've played so far) are easy, but I assume things get harder as you go along [subbed by some1].

200 Clicks
Continuing today's Russian theme 200 Clicks is yet another point'n'click game from the Eastern Bloc (I don't think that term is used any more, but whatever). The aim of the game is to expel as many British Diplomats as possible from your country... no, hang on, that's something else... the aim of the game is to escape the prison cell [subbed by TaylorJane, Mystery & Sanara].

Aside: I assumed from the name of this game that you were going to be limited to 200 clicks to complete the game, with some sort of countdown to show how many you had used so far, but I haven't seen any evidence that this is the case, I'm yet to complete it though, but there certainly isn't a countdown. Anyway, my point is that it might be a cool idea to incorporate into a point'n'click game, I don't remember seeing one before with this feature (let me know if you remember one). If there are any game developers reading this maybe this would be a nice idea to try out? Let me know what you think, and obviously I'll post a link to it if you actually produce a point'n'click game with it in.
