Rescue Byron
Rescue Byron is a ridiculously animated point'n'click game with a ridiculous soundtrack. The idea of the game is to rescue your dog Byron and, it is claimed, you can learn Spanish in the process. However I wouldn't hold out too many hopes of learning accurate Spanish given that the game description says that Byron is a cat, even though he clearly looks like a dog and actually barks when whenever you go near him. Silly, silly, silly, but I doubt whether that will stop us playing [subbed by MsInterpret & anon].

Gimme Friction Baby
Gimme Friction Baby might seem like a throw-away arcade game with very little to it, but it's not the winner of Jay's 3rd game design comp without good reason. I was unconvinced at first too, but this thing is adictting. I won't bore you with details of how to play, partially because I am, of course, inherently lazy, and partially because part of the pleasure of this game is discovering how to play. Once you get into it though you'll find yourself coming back to it whenever you have a moment, and you'll become proud of insanely (seemingly) low scores - getting points seems incredibly difficult (or maybe it's just me). My hi-score currently is 18, but I'm sure I can beat that is I have just one ten more goes... [subbed by f00, Skizzarah & Sozz].

Amnesya is a URL changing puzzler game offering the full suite of challenges these games offer: source viewing, image manipulation, googling, etc. And what's more the slightly cheesy intro reckons it's never been solved, which would seem to be really throwing down the gauntlet to all you puzzlers out there [subbed by TedStudley].

Recollection is a Japanese point'n'click game where the idea seems to be enter the house, rather than escape the room. Unless I'm doing something wrong it doesn't seem to be very to complete either... [subbed by handyrman, Limbo & winniethepooh].

UPDATE: In the hope of understanding more I resorted to a bad translation - I gather this is a pre-release of a bigger game, so I think it is meant to be as simple as it seems (at least for now).

Mage's Maze
Mage's Maze is like one of those URL changing puzzle games, but it's not. It's actually a flash based puzzle, and you don't have to mess with an URL at all, it also adds a maze element to the puzzle just to spice things up a bit. My top tip so far is that the answers are all in lower case letters - that tripped me up right at the beginning. Good luck, and be prepared to exercise your poor old brain [subbed by Biggs].

Apologies to everyone who submitted something for this Musical Friday, but I haven't had time to compile them all, they're on file for future Fridays though. Instead this week I'm featuring My Everything by the walrus of love, Mr Barry White. This one has me up and dancing around my desk this week, and I can also devote it to Jennifer, who is my everything, and who I only have to wait a (tense, far too long) month to be with, as September sees me emigrating Stateside. U.S.A. here I come...

SmallHomePage Driver
SmallHomePage Driver is a pretty weird point'n'click game centred around driving, which despite the incomprehensible Japanese, is fairly easy to complete, even if I'm still none the wiser about what was happening in the last level. Anyway, the game is split into three sections: Day (easy), Evening (medium), and Night (hard) - although I found them pretty much all the same level of difficulty myself (day/easy had me totally stumped for a while - it's hyper simple once you work it out though). On day/easy your task is to lower the bridge so you can drive forward, in evening/medium you need to collect pieces for your sat-nav map, and in the final level you collect animal footprints and flowers to go on a date. Don't ask me what the animal footprints are for, or are meant to mean, that's just my interpretation of what was going on - you'll see what I mean when you get there [subbed by winniethepooh].

Geek Quest 2
The Geek Quest adventures continue at "Smarter-Than-You Tech" in Geek Quest 2. A prankster and his friends have meddled with the school's power and climate control system so your new point'n'click adventure sees you trying to save the day, and the school [subbed by winniethepooh, CaptPicard, Flooor, Helanren & Aurora].
