Hunting vigorously through the lazylaces archives for "point'n'click" unearthed the following results...
Oh ambassador, with these point'n'click
games you are really spoiling us! Not one
, but two
, examples of mouse clicking madness for you this fine Friday evening.
The Ray Room is confusingly Taiwanese (I think), but graphically cool, it has me stumped once again though. Here's my inventory: a power cable, chopsticks, a CD-ROM, a small packet with writing on it, a bowl, a book, a PlayStation controller, a PlayStation 2, a key and, my most favourite thing I've found in a point'n'click game ever, a little cat. I can also get some (incomprehensible) writing on the computer. But what next?
Help, blood, sweat, and tears in the comments as usual.
Update: I have now completed this one - it has one of the most anti-climatic endings I've come across. Be prepared to say "Oh, is that it?"
You wake up in a strange room, with no food or water, and you need to escape???? Not the most original plot in the world of the point'n'click
game (although some would argue this is the only
plot they have), and not the most original name either. The Room
? I'd have hated to have been at the endless brain-storming sessions where they came up with that one: "Fu*k it. Lets just call in 'The Room' and get down the pub
". On second thoughts perhaps I wouldn't have hated it so much...
Anyway my ranting aside, which is probably brought on more by a lack of sleep, and excess of stress this week, more than anything else, this seems to be rather a good game, and after a short playing session it has me stumped, which is always a good sign.
I have in my possession a morse code crib sheet, an un-useful penknife, a skull, a light-bulb, a shiny thing I think is a water-bottle, and a Chinese book. I also think I need to do something with the wooden board with the switch and the twisty things in the picture, but lord knows what. Any ideas my game-addicted friends?
As usual hints, tips, questions & rants in the comments for this post.
[game by nnesoft].
First things first - don't even bother clicking on this game
until it's dark in whatever time-zone you're in. Also I recommend waiting until you're on your own, and preferably you should crank the sound up too. Having spare underpants to hand is also advisable if you are of a nervous disposition. That's the prerequisites over and done with on with the game...
I was a bit dubious at first whether exmortis even was a point'n'click game, it seemed like a simple, if very spooky, flash toy with no real purpose, until I found the locked safe and figured there must be something more going on than I realised at first. Even now (I haven't completed the game), I'm not totally sure what the eventual goal is, but a little point'n'click experience has taught me that it's almost certainly to escape the house (express solution: don't enter the house at the begining and walk away while you can!).
So far I've reached the library (pictured) and figured out that I need to collect some symbols - I don't think I have them all. Post hints, and ask for help, in the comments to this post, but for now I'm off to bed (to have nightmares) and I'll be trying to complete this one in the morning.

PS. Ultra-simple first hurdle hint: click 'play this game' on the newgrounds page to play this game!
Another day, another point'n'click
game. And you thought Monday was going to be boring? Anode Et Cathode
the same people who brought you Le Bureau
now bring you The House
(La Maison?). This one looks harder than Le Bureau, and I haven't got very far with it in the 5 minutes I had to tinker with it, hopefully I'll complete it tonight after work, by which time I'm sure a whole walkthru will have been posted in the comments
for this post (go on
Update: Due to a server outage at work I actually got this one completed in the morning, and thanks to all the comments posted now there's probably a complete walkthru if you want to trawl thru for help.
If you haven't
pirated the password
paid the yen to play it yet I highly recommend playing the blue chamber
, another room escaping installment from the makers of the crimson room
and the viridian room
, which is now out to play (ethically) for free.
Panda's little adventure
is an ultra-cute little point'n'click
game which I know is one of Allegra
's favourites. It's not too taxing on the brain or the mouse finger, but it'll give you a warm fuzzy feeling inside. My only hint, should you need it, is that finding and using the flute is the key to the game.
So you're ultra proficient at point'n'click
gamery now are you? YoPpi the AliEn
is darn cute, but very easy to complete (I managed it in about 5 mins without any hints), so for a challenge I'm starting the stopwatch now. Go...[ta allegra
Visit the brain hotel
with the same people that gave you a case of the crabs
... not, as it appears, advice that means your next stop will be the doctor's surgery, but some more point'n'click
More scary adventures, but this time with Garfield
(yes he's still
going), in the scary scavenger hunt
. Once you're done with part one
, part two
offers more of the same. The stangest thing about these games is the huge doughnut craving you develop after about 10 minutes playing. I was actually in the car en-route to Tesco
within seconds of completing part two
And now a round up of some of the point'n'click
-ery that's been keeping me occupied recently. First up some scary scooby doo
capers in the escape from the coolsonian
, and if that isn't enough try some horror on the high seas
Soon there won't be on-line games which don't involve escaping a room (okay, an office
in this case) with lots of point'n'clicking
. I'm running out of ways to describe these things, but I'm still loving them. Nice graphics, shame about the lack of audio, in Le Bureau
. By the way, I'm escapee #1882 apparently. What's your number? [ta Incog Neato
I have no idea what this game is really called as all the text describing it is in Japanese, but the idea of the thing is that a little girl's head floats away on a balloon and you have to help her retrieve it (no, really
). So I've christened the game "Little Lost Head
" for want of a better name.
That aside it's rather a nice example of another point'n'click game, it reminds me of a cross between samorost and chasm, and it's really rather cute (if you ignore the fact that you're controlling a decapitated girl's body).
As usual feel free to post a comment if you get stuck, although I should warn you that I'm currently stuck on level 3 myself (why doesn't the pattern the bird shows me work?), but perhaps the very kind Incog Neato can help since they mailed me the link (have you completed it Incog?).
Note: mail me at the address at the bottom of the page for a downloaded copy of the game if the link isn't working.
