Free Rice is a vocabulary testing game that adjusts itself to your level of language skill - the more questions you get right, the harder the questions. But the main point of the game, and the reason you should head over and play for a while, is that for each question you get right 10 grains of rice are donated to a hungry person through an international aid agency. It doesn't sound like a lot, but the more that you play, and particularly the more of you that play, the bigger the donation will be. Head on over, play, and save lives now [subbed by vmklover].
Jack French 3 : Jack and the Seven Dwarfs is fresh in my in-box, and I haven't had time to play yet, but I think it's fair to say that this point'n'click game is the third episode in JB's Jack French Series... I haven't got much time to write a good description or play the game thru, can you tell? I'll be playing later though, so don't go posting walkthrus I won't be able to resist looking at, but in the mean time here is JB's game description:
Jack is back in this 3rd episode of the famous Flash game series. You meet up with Jack when a businessman is thrown out of a running train. Clearly, this case is going to be more complicated than initially expected... This episode should keep you at the edge of your seat!. If you haven't done so, it is recommended that you play Jack French 1, All Roads Lead to Paradise, and Jack French 2, The Good Dr. Ferrer prior to playing Jack French 3 JFAT7D in order to avoid possible spoilers... but it is not necessary.[subbed & created by JB].
Sphere Core. Not so strange is the goal: escape the room. That part is as familiar as an old comfy sweater [subbed by handyrman, karstenmp, PnCAddict, Mystery & anon].
JPRS24 Escape is an escape the room game with some fine graphics (I believe the team behind it are connected to gotmail, and point'n'click aficionados will spot the similarities straight away) that initially seems hard to understand (it's in Japanese). But once you get passed the intro screens, which I found totally incomprehensible (the skip button is your friend), things get more familiar and playable [subbed by Mystery & Mantari].
Escape From Younger Sister's Room is somewhat obvious from the game's title, it's just achieving that goal that is a little tricky. All that my point'n'click efforts so far have managed to reveal are a million and one scraps of paper with indecipherable Japanese text on them [subbed by Abby & winniethepooh].
Hidden C1: Esencia Primitiva , the English Version, "Hidden C1 - Primitive Essence", is now available to play. It's still not suitable for kids though [subbed by Mantari].
Cauchemars Series of point'n'click games recently made a reappearance in English as "Nightmares", and now Cauchemars Episode 5 has been released, super cute as ever, but only in the original French format. It shouldn't stop you playing, and enjoying, the game, but drop me a line all the same should you spot an English release anywhere [subbed by Mantari & winniethepooh].
Yu A's Room [subbed by Mystery & handyrman].
Yuria's Room 3 is quite a tricky little escape the room proposition, at least it is for those of that don't understand Japanese [subbed by winniethepooh, Catraven & roko].
Nazono Heya Room might be slightly baffling as it's in Japanese, but the locked door, waste-paper basket and computer on the desk should all be familiar to seasoned point'n'clickers [subbed by Tia].
Prawn To Be Wild 3 sees the little prawn fella returning in a point'n'click slidey puzzle thing in which you must "escape the shopping bag" (allowing us to cross off another "escape the..." locale from our list). Once again it's not entirely suitable for children [subbed by Krumpet, vgaforums.com, handyrman, SmashMan140 & salocius].
