point'n'click, a large dollop of violence, some video footage, and lashings of first-person-shooter gaming, and you get FPS IRL. It's quite a neat idea, if a little short (I'm guessing it takes quite a lot of work to make though), but not one for the kids, or peace loving hippies, to play. And remember folks: don't try this at home. Shooting people in real life is not big or clever [via gamershood].
Domino Pressure is a curious game where you try to squash tomatoes with dominos against a tight time limit. Knock down all the dominos in the process and you're rewarded with an increased time limit for later levels, leave some standing, and your time limit quickly diminishes. Not running out of time is very tricky, but then again so is not having just one more attempt [subbed by Meeker].
Paying Back you play Ken, who has to find $50 in his house to pay back his friend Bob. The trouble is you start the game in your bedroom, where you are stuck, having been sent there by your Dad after getting some bad school results. Cue some point'n'clickery to get out of your room and find $50 for Bob. Watch out for the rather weird [SPACE] bar control for picking up things, and also there's a little bad language you might not want younger players to see [subbed by MsInterpret].
MotherLoad is not my normal kind of game, very arcadey, if that's a word (it is now, if it wasn't), but I gave it a try and it's very addicting. You control a caterpillar-tracked, helicopter-esque, drilling machine, the idea being to mine as many minerals as possible to earn money to upgrade your machine, mining more and more minerals as you go. It sounds a bit dumb, but I found it hard to tear myself away to post it in the end. Don't worry I saved my game - I'll go back to it later [subbed by nikkiv].
I Want To Enter" is a game along the same lines as an "escape the room" point'n'click game, but differs in that you want to get in, rather than out. You'll also want to understand the language it's in (I'd guess which one it is, but I'll only get it wrong and upset people), but there's a damn good chance you won't [subbed by kelly].
Squirrel Escape you must escape the evil rampaging squirrel hoards with only your wily point'n'click skills to help you in your quest. At least that's what the game should be in my head. In reality you bound around collecting keys and coins, and you have to use the keyboard to do it. Fun, but I like my version better [subbed by Meeker].
It's musical Friday and the last day of the working week for most of us, so what could be better than a little ballad about the joys of the work place? [subbed by Hamish].
Four Leaf Clover" game is simple: you have six minutes to find seven, count them, seven, four-leaf clovers. As you may suspect though, the execution of the game is somewhat more tricky than it sounds, even if it does sound a bit tricky anyway, and it's somewhat addicting as well... just think how much luck you will have accumulated if you succeed though... [subbed by Clara].
Citrus Impossible is working out what is going on. If you do though, and I haven't yet, it looks and sounds like it might be a nice point'n'clicker [subbed by MsInterpret].
Skatteoeen 2 to keep me occupied. It has pirates, dangerous animals for you to bash over the head and treats to collect. Excellent. Oh, and it's in Danish, which I don't understand at all, but it sounds cool, especially when the little pirate talks [subbed by helle].
Renegade, creator of the Leaving Your Room series comes a new point'n'click game, "Escape the Roomba". The idea of the game is to find and destroy the Roomba (those little robotic room cleaners), rather than finding keys, although there is one key to find for those of you who like that kind of thing [subbed & created by Renegade].
Stage 07 seems to be the start of a large, and graphically fine, point'n'click (you'll need to use the keyboard to move though) adventure. There's already a lot to investigate and this is just first free part (according to the site later stages will require payment, but there's no mention of prices yet). Curiously the goal of the game is hard to define, at least I couldn't find much explanation. You play the role of Linda Webb, some sort of investigator, but it doesn't say what kind, on a supposedly standard assignment, again it's not explained what the assignment is, which turns out to be more complex (again no explanation). You start at a research company, "EAZ", and it's very much down to you to work out what is going on from there... I'm busy trying to get in, which I haven't managed to do yet [subbed by Nemrac].
