Cop Baby
Due to the random nature of the timings/existence of my trains into London this morning I'm a bit short of time so pressing quickly on....

Cop Baby is a very strange point'n'click game with an even odder premise: someone has left a baby on your doorstep and it's your job to bring it into your home and raise it to be a good cop (hence cop baby). So far I have fed it liquidized doughnuts, naturellment, (it might be a stereotype, but no word of lie, I went into one, and only one, Dunkin' Dounuts in the US, and the customer next to me was a cop), some milk, and then made myself endless cups of coffee. In fact I'm now stuck in a coffee making/drinking loop to the point where I think there might be a glitch in the game. Or maybe it's art imitating life (ok, maybe art is a bit strong, but you know what I mean). Anyway perhaps you can get further than that point and raise your Cop Baby. Good luck [subbed by Jessica].

Titei
Titei is a somewhat tricky Japanese point'n'click adventure game, based in an underground cave system in which you collect and use coins and other items to progress and open doors. Use the map at the bottom left (click on it) to see your current location. I'm guessing the goal is to get into the large cavern that is blocked off [subbed by Mystery & Sanara].

The Paradox Trials 2
The Paradox Trials 2 is a flash puzzle quiz with some tricky little questions for you where nothing is as it first appears. My top tip: while all the questions have four multi-choice answers one of these is not necessarily the thing you click on the answer every question. Also I'm loving the cheesy soundtrack which sounds like some kind of remixed 80's TV show theme tune [subbed by Mystery].

Papa's Pizza
Take a break from the mind numbing boredom of you daily work by playing Papa's Pizza (a sort of Sim-Pizzeria) and pretend you make pizzas for a living! Takes orders! Distribute toppings! Bake pizzas! Don't forget to slice! Collect your tips! This really shouldn't be entertaining, but I ended up really getting into it, but that probably says more about my love of pizza than anything else...

Aengie Quest
Open doors, collect keys & move boxes to complete each level of 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
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
Just in case you really can't get anywhere with 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].

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
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].

Rubix Cube
Back in the early 80's when free flash games delivered over the internet weren't even a pipe dream, let alone a reality, everybody started playing with a 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].
