Glue House Murders
Glue House Murders is quite an old point'n'click game now, which I thought I had posted already, I remember playing it before, but a quick search showed that I must be imagining things. Anyway the game might look like it's of the "escape the room" style (well escape the maze of rooms), but it's actually a murder mystery. Can you find the murderer? [subbed by Justme and Cruzinn].

Operation S.T.A.T.
Well Operation S.T.A.T. is meant to be another point'n'click adventure that you can unleash the kids on, but I'm sad to say, due to the tight time limit, I struggled with it myself, so perhaps I should say it's fun for all the family instead. The idea of the game is that in each of 5 levels, represented by the 5 different characters on the game's start page, are hidden parts of an antenna that you are meant to collect and construct, but you have a 60 second limit on each level. Some items cannot be collected but animate cutely when you click on them, which you think is great until you realise that you can't click on anything else while they animate, so they are using your precious time up. Damn. I'm guessing the trick is to learn where the right objects are to speed through the levels, but that'll take a while, so what looks like a quick and simple little game, should actually keep you entertained for a while [subbed by Cynthia].

La Bibliotheque Hantee
La Bibliotheque Hantee (The Haunted Library) is a cute little point'n'click game which is very suitable for kids. Especially if you are trying to teach them French (or if they are French), although the game is very playable, and can be completed, without one word of French (I managed!). The game is structured around 3 levels which are mini-games in themselves. The first level, which I actually thought was the hardest as the mouse cordination is quite tricky, sees you replacing the ghost disturbed books on the library shelves. In the second level you have to catch the scary bats in your torch light with limited battery power, and in the final level you have to herd the ghost around the bookshelves by torch power. Should keep the kids entertained for 5 or 10 minutes [subbed by Eryn].

Racoon Police
If you are impatient don't bother with Racoon Police. You have to endure some of the longest loading times I have ever seen before you even start playing this point'n'click game, and then there is major language barrier issue once it's up and running (none of the language packs on my PC were happy with it). I had to guess the name of the game from the only words I could understand! If you can get to grips with it though it looks like there might be an adventure to be had. I never quite worked out all of the controls. You need to click here and there, but also using the cursor keys to move is essential, and the space and enter keys come into play once in a while. All very confusing [subbed by winniethepooh].

Curious George
Curious George might be the web site for the film of the same name, but a simple little point'n'click game is contained within, and it's a great one for the kids (and me). Your mission is to find the 8 collectibles so you can locate the Lost Shrine Of Zagawa. There are even some extras like screen-savers, wallpapers, buddy icons and printable bookmarks & bookcovers to find along the way, as well as some cute additional animations. Despite the fact that I'm at least 20 years older than the target audience it all kept me very entertained for much longer than I expected, and you can listen to some Jack Johnson while you play, which I quite liked too [subbed by ang].

The Mystery Of The Hidden Mine
The Mystery of the Hidden Mine is a point'n'click adventure with a long and convoluted back story, which also throws in a load of forensic science, but then, some how, it's all over before you know it. I thought there was going to be so much more. It's diverting for a little while though, but make sure you heed my advice, and do not skip the intro story. If you do you won't have a clue what the game is all about, and it'll shorten the whole thing quite considerably [subbed by winniethepooh].

The Ice Quest
The Ice Quest is one of the most infuriating point'n'click games I've played in some time. Working out which ice cream, or lolly, each person wants is one thing (point'n'click'drag), but dodging the falling flames (cursor keys) is quite another. And when you get flamed you have to go back to the begining. And the music is driving me nuts now. Share my pain, and try playing [subbed by Cynthia]

Little Dog Gone
In Little Dog Gone you have to use your point'n'click detective skills to find out who has kidnapped a dog. You also have a little psychic help. Apparently I'm the only one who finds this whole premise a little weird [subbed by cynthia & winniethepooh].

Black Carnations
Black Carnations (my translation of Schwarze Nelken) is, in part, a point'n'click game, but it mixes up it's game genres as it goes along. Unfortunately the most point'n'click bit is the third, and I believe, final level, but that is also the most German, so I was left scratching my head a bit, as I didn't know what what was going on. Still the journey getting there is quite good fun. In Level 1 you have to photograph the supects in the murder case you are investgating. I won't spoil it by telling you how to do it, but you are looking to get a green tick by each picture. Level 2 sees you in a police car in hot-pursuit of the suspects, in a fun little arcade game. Once you have brought them all in, level 3 starts. I think it is here that you have to idenitfy "whodunnit", but as I say I got a bit lost. Click "Spiel starten" (Start Play) on the linked page to play the game [subbed by winniethepooh].

IL Destino
IL Destino is the latest point'n'click game from the same folks that brought you Escape The Bar and Escape The Salon, and it comes in a choice of either English, or Japanese if you like to do things the hard way (or if you are Japanese, of course). The idea of the game would seem to be, I've only just started playing so I'm picking this up from the intro screens, to "Escape The Car Showroom". With the car! You are going to have trouble smuggling that out under your t-shirt. As always in this series of games the graphics are lush, and the puzzles are challenging. Enjoy.

Leaving Your Room 2
Leaving Your Room 2 is the logically named sequel to Leaving Your Room, although I would name this one "The 5 Billion Golden Keys". Soooo many keys. And not all easy to find this time. I almost broke my mouse point'n'clicking on the elephant level (and don't even get me started on the damn camel puzzle), and now I have finger cramps. *ouch*. Also be careful on the transporter. The wrong selection takes you back to the first game. Dammit [subbed & created by Renegade].

UPDATE: I've swapped the link for a new one, site bandwidth was exceeded on the last one!

Bird's Way
In Bird's Way you play a bird who is carrying a bone to a dog (which is totally regular, and not odd at all) through 3 levels of untaxing, but cute, point'n'clicking (with some dragging'n'dropping too). If it's not easy enough for you, you even get hints if you get it wrong. It is very cute though. The only vaguely hard bit is tackling the incomprehensible menu screen. Make sure you pick the right hand of the three buttons as this gives you access to the 3 level version of the game. The other buttons lead to the unhelpful help screen, and single level version (level 1 of the 3 level version) of the game
