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 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 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 (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 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.
The ShadowRose Riddle. I'm liking this one as I have actually managed to get to level 5 already with no help and I'm normally terrible at them. I'm a source code daemon. My one word of advice though, is that the answers end ".html", rather than ".htm", which tripped me up at the beginning [subbed and created by Shadow].
second Qwizard Qwest is here, so it's time to dust off the old grey cells, and prepare to alter some URLs. This one has a tube theme, so you might find a tube map useful. Mind the gap! [subbed and created by Greg McKean & Lola Lush] Aside: Graeme's mini-quiz (as I'm outstandingly bored today): Despite working in London I rarely catch the tube, I can walk to my office from the railway station, but all this week I'm working elsewhere in London and I'm taking the Jubilee Line (pdf). I get off at a station, which will remain un-named, cross one of the bridges over the Thames, and arrive almost immediately at the office where I am working. From the office window I, directly, overlook a national (UK) monument. What can I see from my window? Hint: there's a clue in the question. Answers, with photographic proof, later in the week (yes - I'm taking photos out of my office window - that's how bored I am).
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 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

The Concretes In Colour when it came out the other week. It's a point'n'click "thing", calling it a game might be pushing it a bit far, to promote Swedish band The Concretes. Find all the clickable things to win rewards like screensavers and the like, and all the while listen to tracks from their new album. Or press the mute option if you aren't into it. It's all a bit weird, but very nice to play with, and it looks great [subbed by f00].
Norakurabako is my favourite of the bunch as a). I've actually managed to find some things in this one, b). The really weird way you move from scene to scene (click and drag in the direction you want to move) is a totally new thing to me in a point'n'click game [subbed by f00].
RoomEscapeRaunge is a point'n'click game with very simple graphics. However the difficult language makes the rest of the game not so simple. It's all too much for my lazy brain on a lazy Sunday [subbed by winniethepooh & Mystery].
