Aengie Quest, all using the cursor key controls and presented in isometric format - the combination you love to hate [subbed by Narangi].
Yuria's Hotel is the follow up to Yuria's Room, but this time you have to escape a hotel, rather than just a room (oops - just solved the enigma of the game titles for you). Of course in the world of point'n'click games escaping a hotel is not quite as simple as in real life. This one would fail all sorts of health and safety and fire codes, there are no clearly marked, and unobstructed, exits here, you're going to need to do some work to get out. For a start some fool has installed a moat around the hotel (all the best places have one), but they've then removed the drawbridge (maybe the health & safety inspector is due?). Also, everything is written in Japanese which isn't a great help. The question is how are the mushroom and torch I've managed to find so far going to get me out of here?

Dassyutu 7 as you don't understand Japanese, this point'n'click game also usefully includes a mechanical bucking bronco type thing for you to play with while you wait for someone to write a walkthrough... [subbed by handyrman & Mystery].
Wogger Mini 75: Can you help Wogger find the third crystal? [subbed by some1, anon, ambas, vmklover & Stranger].
I covered my listening for the week early by pre-emptively doing Musical Friday on Tuesday, but that still leaves me with loads of stuff some of you have kindly sent in. I can't include it all, but here are a few to tickle your eardrums... First up is Cillian Foster, submitting himself, and why not, a little self promotion never hurt anyone. Based in Ireland Cillian's music has a great acoustic sound I'm happy to say as that's exactly my kind of bag (baby):Next up Char send news from down under (loving the international flavour this week) about singer Gotye who's song "Heart's A Mess" comes complete with a bizarre video (love it, and the song):And finally, most weeks someone sends me in something ridiculous for this feature and this week Naomi does the honours with Potter Puppet Pals in "The Mysterious Ticking Noise" where the worlds of puppets, hip-hop and Harry Potter collide... OMG, anyway:
Enter The Apartment is an escape the room in reverse, the idea being to get in, not out, using your point'n'click skills. From what I've played so far my top tip would be to try dragging clickable items to see what's behind them [subbed by Mantari, Fleur123, czGeorge & handyrman].
Wogger Mini 74: Can you help Wogger to find the second crystal? [subbed by vmklover, hiddenfaceinthecrowd & f00].
colourful puzzle cube to give them something to do to waste their time whilst they waited for internet to be invented so they could become point and click game addicts. And now things have come full circle and become all joined up as you can now play Rubix Cube for free on-line and do a lot of pointing and clicking into the bargain. And what is more by using the spacemen icons (no, I have no idea why they are spacemen) you can even get it to auto mix, auto solve and even make some pretty patterns which is the up-to-date version of the thing driving you nuts and you disassembling the thing and then putting it back together. Not that I ever did that, no siree, not me, no way [via No1. Game].
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.
