Dassyutu 6, but I wouldn't know as I'm still struggling with the old "I don't have a clue what's going 'cause it's all in Japanese" point'n'click game dilemma [subbed by handyrman, Fleur123 & Sanara].
Musical Friday is making a sneak
Tuesday Wednesday appearance today simply because I love Hey There Delilah by the Plain White T's and I actually heard it on the radio today here in the UK for the first time after the beautiful Kaya switched me on to it last week after it got a lot of airplay on WRNR (Annapolis area). I'm not sure why the song is picking up airplay now, as it seems it was first released an age ago, but I'm not going to stress myself looking for answers (laziness is so cool sometimes) and I'm just going to just enjoy chilling out & listening to it. Feel free to post me a comment about how you were listening to it back in '05, and how I'm so behind the times, though: I'll be bothered, really I will. For the rest of you, turn up the volume and enjoy.
And while I'm breaking my own Friday rule (I'm such a rebel) I'll share with you that I risked the UK Hype this week and downloaded Kate Nash's new album and was more than pleasantly surprised. Her current UK chart hit, Foundations, although not bad, is far from the best track on the album (imho) and it was a great buy. My favourite track is, suitably, "The Nicest Thing":
That's all for now. Time allowing, and if I manage to get the day right, Musical Friday will actually return on Friday...
Sneaky Land in SSSG: Sneaky Land 3: The Haunted Land. Hopefully your point'n'click finger is in good shape, as this will be giving it a good work out today [subbed by selfdefiant, Picard, winniethepooh, & Fleur123].
Jay writes to tell me (I would have spotted it - honest) that there's a new point'n'click game lurking in the top of page banner for Jay Is Games, by Rob Allen, author of Hapland. Genius idea.
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 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].
Wogger Mini Juggernaut keeps on truckin' * with Wogger Mini 73 [subbed by hiddenfaceinthecrowd, Spanky McPipebomb, vmklover & Sentinel]. * Note/Disclaimer: the spurious truck references are the invention of my own warped mind in an effort to say something new about this series and not a reflection of true game content.
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].
Purism gives us yet another chance to flex our point'n'click muscles in order to escape the room [subbed by handyrman, helle, Mantari, Fleur123, Limbo, jas, winniethepooh & ta].
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).
point'n'click skills can you Escape From Hartwell? [subbed by winniethepooh, Sanara, Jas & ta].
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].
