Hunting vigorously through the lazylaces archives for "point'n'click" unearthed the following results...
Really Fowl Play
should be struck off the register of cool point'n'click
games for the appalling pun in it's name, but I find the music curiously catchy and the graphics rather stylish so I'll let it slide for now.
By all accounts (thanks to everyone who submitted this
) The Escape
is a bit of a b**ger of a point'n'click
game. Personally I haven't even had time to start it yet so I'll have to take your word for it for now.
Except for the lack of an Apple Mac in the room, Just Another Escape
, is exactly what it says it is. Another point'n'click
game where we try to escape the room. But that's what we love isn't it? Kudos for the anti-cheat device though - did you find it? [subbed by think~pink & kimi
Important: As always, making sure your anti-virus software is up-to-date is recommended before visiting gamershood.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that Praticamente Invisibili
is in Italian, which going on my past form probably means that it's in Hungarian. Anyway, my language dyslexia aside, this a very nice little point'n'click
game - a tad short, the ending is somewhat disappointing, but the journey is rather enjoyable.
game where you position chairs? It sounds like it might be a school assembly, but Vestibular Unisinos
is one of the best looking, and sounding, games you'll find at the moment, and most frustratingly I'm stuck on level 2 (pictured) [subbed by nitro, hewitt, kat & kimi
Update: ok, it felt slightly random, I'm not sure I could recreate it, but I've got passed level 2 now and I'm stuck on level 3.
Update 2: Ohhhhh....seemed to be to do with those little puffy clouds that appeared when I was shaking the bush - got back through level 2, and I've now completed level 3. *all done* That was nice.
The Secret Garden Of Mutabor
is a rather unusal point'n'click
game, with some fantastic graphic designs, and innovative, or at least interesting, usages of the flash medium. If you love hunting in the wastepaper-basket for your clues there's the possibility that this might just blow your mind. *plush* [subbed by nail
I thought I'd not only posted Inspektor Wombat
ages ago, but played it to completion as well, but it turns out I've done neither of those things (the nearest I've done is post a wombat tale
). It would seem that every time I try to play this point'n'click
game I just end up singing the Inspector Gadget theme tune
to myself instead, with the words subtly changed ; der, der, der, inspector wombat, der, der, der, der-der, hoo-hoo. [subbed by nail
The first point'n'click
game in ages I've managed to find before someone else submitted
it. I think so anyway, it could be in my inbox somewhere I grant you, but it, and I, are a little disorganised at the moment. Anyway I liked Kao
as it's the first point'n'click
game I've come across where escaping the room seems to involve drinking, which is always a bonus. There's possibly a handicap system slash
drinking game to be had here where you keep up drink for the drink with the main character (not hard) if you are so inclined. Easy to complete, with rather a weird ending. Enjoy. *hic*
Once again a point'n'click
game in a language I find so impenetrable that I can't even work out it's name and I resort to calling it episode 1
, because that's the English name of the flash file and the only bit I understand. Anyway it has a wastepaper basket containing a clue, and a computer on a desk, oh and you're locked in a room, so it's not all unfamiliar territory [subbed by Sunshine C
It's just too hot
here to sit around posting stuff at a computer. Hopefully True Gate
will keep you occupied while I pop off to stand under a cold shower [subbed by kimi and meme
A very weird point'n'click
game, La Pièce
has items that appear as you move your mouse over them, the graphics can go a bit strange (intentionally I think) and different things happen depending on whether you have the shutters on the window open or not. Bizarre [subbed by kennymfk
I totally loved the retro music and graphics on this one
, but I'll hand over to Nadif, who submitted the link, for a much better description:
"Another sweet point'n'click from the guys who did "L'Affaire Lectron", in the same style: wonderful retro graphics, lots of talking and a notebook. And yes, this one too is in French. And a little bit less easy to complete than Affair Lectron, since the hints on the notebook are less obvious (more words, less numbers) and there is a time limit. The story itself is quite bizarre: apparently (hey, I do NOT really speak French) it's an investigation about the disappearence of all the cats from the city of Nantes. The player, as Martine Soublie, a Betty Boop-ish female investigator, must collect hints and solve the case before all the cats are gone (yes, the time countdown is provided in form of a counter saying "there are only xxxxx cats left in Nantes). I guess this will either attract to your site a lot of French players, or give all the english-speaking regulars an unforgettable headache. Or both."
*Ouch* Headache indeed. Thanks for such a great link though.
