Do Not Press Tab
There was a time, young point and click adventurer, when in almost all Flash games the [TAB] key was your friend. When you became stuck on a puzzle, or you just couldn't find that hidden object, or weird "behind the back of the sofa" view, the [TAB] key would always have some helpful suggestions for you. But "they" didn't like that, and claimed it was cheating and unfair, so "they" started to code their Flash games so [TAB] no longer did anything useful, until we got to the point today where it no longer worked in any game. And now they have unleashed their ultimate taunting tool. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the cruelness that is: "Do Not Press Tab". Arrrggrgrhh, the horror! [subbed by Renegade].

Room with a Clock
Due to an unlikely transposition of time periods, genres, locations and any number of other so called "facts" I can exclusively reveal that Room with a Clock is the long awaited sequel to E.M.Forster's original A Room with a View. It also stars Shia LaBeouf and some oversize transforming robots. The musical score consists of original pieces written by Sir Elton John, and is performed by Mozart, although this has been edited into tones where only dogs can hear it due to legal wrangles during post production. Also, just possibly, there may be a clock, but that outrageous report has not yet been confirmed [via nordinho].

River Puzzle Escape
You know those river crossing puzzles where you have a fox, a chicken and some grain (or some other such combination of things where they want to eat each other), and a boat that will only carry one of them (and you) at a time, and you have to work out the trips you need to make to get them all safely across a river? Well, that's not what River Puzzle Escape is... [subbed by charlie].

FOOTNOTES: You might well experience popup/under windows when playing this game, especially if you are using Internet Explorer (IE). If this bothers you consider using a different web browser, like Chrome, Firefox, Opera or Safari all of which have better popup blocking capabilities. Here at Lazylaces we mainly use, and highly recommend, Chrome. At the very least consider using IE in conjunction with anti-adware software.

Great Hall Escape
Great Hall Escape rewrites the rules when it come to point'n'click games... the old rule book said that a clock locker with strobe lighting on it's buttons was simply not allowed in the genre, but Great Hall Escape merrily laughs in the face of that rule and blows a big raspberry in the face of the point'n'click old guard. Viva la Revolucion! [subbed by zippa].

5 Stars Hotel Escape
5 Stars Hotel Escape begs the question do hotels get more, or less, stars the more ingenious their puzzles are? How do the people that give out hotel stars rate that kind of thing? Is the fact that I've only ever been able to afford 4 star hotels at best the reason why I could get in and out of all the doors with a simple key card (or a simple metal key back in the old days) rather than having to puzzle my way in and out of every room? Maybe if I'd upgraded I could have a puzzle or two thrown in with my stay? And now, of course, I am wondering if this kind of thing happens in the first class compartment on aircraft as well? And the Orient Express must be terrifically hard to get around with really stunningly difficult codes and mysteries to solve... [subbed by f00].

Mission Queen Escape
I accidentally didn't mute the sound when playing Mission Queen Escape and went into a catatonic trance that lasted 4 hours. The mute button is in the bottom right next to the timer. You have been warned! [subbed by zippa].

SITE UPDATE: I tweaked the layout on the comments today to make them slightly easier to follow, which is nice I'm sure you'll agree. Check out the Hot Gossip page (or the comments for any post) to see them in action. I'm also considering reversing them so that the newest comments will be at the top of the page, and the older comments will languish down at the base of the page. I think that'll be cool, but I haven't decided for sure yet. One thing is for sure though, it'll be a bunch more work for me, so maybe that'll have to wait a while.

And if you are wondering how to get your own avatar for comments, pop on over to Gravatar and register for your globally recognized avatar (or just use your email address when you comment and get assigned a random-ish one).

Cheers All

Aurora
'Tis a slow day in the world of point'n'click today, at least it is in my inbox, so I'm going to step back in time a little and get lost in the world of Aurora as I wait for some new games to come along...

Indoor Garden Escape
We might mock this Indoor Garden Escape nonsense; Staying indoors to go outdoors? And when you escape the outdoors indoors where are you escaping to? The indoors outdoors? But at the end of the day we're all stuck indoors at computers playing games so it's not like we're occupying the strong moral high ground here. Anyway. Off to give this one a go...
