Hunting vigorously through the lazylaces archives for "point'n'click" unearthed the following results...

One more adult only game for today, it has a 18+ tag, is Condemned. The game is the prequel story behind the XBox 360 game of the same name. There is a little point'n'clickery, but it's all very linear as it's obviously trying to simply tell a story. I loved the graphics and the atmosphere though (that always sways it for me), even if it was somewhat let down by frequent and lengthy loading points. Have a click through after dark, with the sound up, to give yourself a scary little treat [subbed by Ariadne].

Resident Evil Escape Game
I'm not sure what is happening here. I settle down for a nice quiet Sunday and suddenly I'm inundated with games that feature blood, zombies and mutants. What a sick lot you are. Anyway, suffice to say that the Resident Evil Escape Game is not one for the kids (check down the page for a couple of games that are, that I posted earlier in the day), even if on the main screen zombies are suprisingly represented by cute little icons. The idea of the game is to point'n'click a path through the city that doesn't involve you geting killed or eaten by the marauding zombie hoards [subbed by Burgerz].

Damnation Doom
Damnation Doom isn't a game for the kids, or anyone who isn't keen on bucket loads of blood. It's a point'n'click homage to Doom, where you investigate a little before quickly getting locked in intense battles. Prepare to replace your space bar key, you'll see what I mean when you get there [subbed by magrat via nordinho].

Detective Conan
In Detective Conan, a point'n'click murder mystery, your task is to enter and explore the abandoned Cludo house, in order to discover what really happened there 5 years ago. You'll quickly realise that nice graphics wasn't one of the things that happened there [subbed by Cynthia].

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].
