Hunting vigorously through the lazylaces archives for "point'n'click" unearthed the following results...
A veritable feast of point'n'clickery
this week with the comments from one
spawning suggestions for another. If you haven't played it already enjoy completing Maama Room
Hot off the press (I just got the e-mail) in the world of point'n'click
is the museum
from the same nice people
that brought you the office
and the house
. Right, I have some gaming to do now...
, but two, tricky point'n'click
games for you today - will you be puzzling all the way into the new year? So, what's the twist with My Diamond Baby
? Well despite the fact that there's a link for an English version it isn't ready yet so you'll have to play it in Japanese. Fine if you're from that neck of the woods, or you're some kind of polyglot, but for the rest of us an evil extra level of difficulty. Fortunately the kindly Jayne has already found a walkthru
over at the-geek
is a photo-realistic point'n'click
game from Japan that has a reputation for being tricky to complete, so comments
ahoy with all our efforts to complete it. Yes - that's right - I post games I haven't completed yet so I can cheat by reading your comments. My dirty secret is out (fortunately that's one of the less dirty one's - keep your mouth shut if you're reading Jules).
I've got a couple of particularly nasty point'n'click
adventures lined up for you soon that I've been holding off on posting as they're so evil, so in the meantime you better brush up on your clicking prowess in the World Mouse Clicking Championship
. I got a top score of 68 since you ask (and that was on my X40
Can you torque the talk with tork
? Breaking with tradition (ha ha) I'm posting a point'n'click
game I haven't completed yet, or even understood ;o) This is sooo cute though and the idea seems great. Try and understand the aliens' languages to escape the planet. People cleverer than me (ie most of you) post helpful hints in the comments
, people denser than me (anyone?) ask for help - I'll be joining you when I get time to play [ta tabby
With 11 of 13 installments currently available there are plenty of point'n'click
investigations to be done over at 11 Somerset
to keep you out of trouble on a Friday, well unless you get in trouble because you should be working rather than playing, of course. I warn you now that all I've had time for is to complete most of part XI (logically I started with the last one), but I'm sure some of you folks have completed the lot and written extensive walkthru guides by now so expect help, derision, and banter in the comments
as usual [thanks to everyone who sent this in
As you may have noticed the point'n'click
game has become something of an obsession at lazylaces. I've been looking around for a while now for a commercial game in the genre that looked worth playing and in moment of silence
I think I've found it. In the demo (use the downloads link on the site) you have to escape a prison and it's a nice little challenge in itself (which I've completed now). I have the full game on order from play.com
(who had by far the best price I could find). If any of you gamers have tried this one out let me know as I'm sure I'll get stuck at some point, in the meantime I might be a bit quiet for a while as I puzzle my way through it.
is a surreal little flash game thingumy. It's not quite a point'n'click
adventure game in the normal sense, but playing around with all the clicking options certainly helps you through the thing - but in this case some of the things that happen when you 'fail' are as good as finding the successful path to the end.
The person who mailed the link to walking in circles
to me (thanks looby
) reckons this is a game and went so far to ask for help as she hadn't "got passed the third girl". I must be losing my point'n'click
touch though as I haven't managed to find anything that seems like a game in it yet. To me it seems like a, albeit rather nice, little flash exploring oddity. However I know some of you are demons at these things so I challenge you to unleash hell on the thing and let me know what's going on with it. Mystery solving in the comments
Supposedly a parody of The Crimson Room
, The Pink Room
certainly lives up to it's name, but I'm not sure if I'm just being thick, or if part of the parody is that you can't do much in the game, but I didn't get very far with this before I decided I had better things to do with my day. Perhaps some of you point'n'click
freaks out there can shed some light on the matter. Rantings in the comments
as per usual. For reference I got the Furikake and the Key before I quit out.
PS. I don't know if it was intentional, but rumour has it that the next game in the Crimson, Viridian, Blue series is actually The Pink Room, or maybe The Pink Prison. If you have any info on this drop the gossip in the comments as well.
Update: I've actually gotten around to coming back and finshing this one now and my advice is to not bother. It's very unsatisfying as a game, and not very funny as a parody. We'll just have to wait for the Pink Prison to come out.
As a point'n'click
addict you've escaped from rooms (of varying colours), a house (or two), now it's back to school with you, to escape from detention
Organise your team of errant school kids to escape first the detention room, and then the school without waking the principal, and avoiding the slavering jaws of the caretaker's dog. A nice little point and click game for a Sunday.The whole team thing is a kind of cool feature - only certain members of the team can do certain tasks, and I'm always a sucker for pixel graphics.
Good luck with your escape! Help, blood, sweat, tears, and bragging in the comments as usual [via ajkul].
