Hunting vigorously through the lazylaces archives for "point'n'click" unearthed the following results...
If you're a slacker
even getting washed, eating and leaving the house can form the basis of a point'n'click
adventure. I know it does for me [at gamegarage
Well, what do you know? I'm just doing my end of year links clear out
by working alphabetically through my Opera
bookmarks folder (that's how they arrange themsleves) and this
is the third point'n'click game
link in a row. You guys really do send a lot of stuff into me, dont you? Thanks!
Anyway, despite the childish graphics and lack of sound (my pet peeve in a game), you'll find that helping Astro Suzie save the earth from alien invasion, still involves some tricky puzzles. Requests for help in the comments as usual.
For all you point'n'click
nuts out there you can now take a crack at building your own game, thanks to Adventure Game Studio
. I haven't tried it yet, or tried playing any of the games people have come up with (shame on me), but it's a fantastic idea. If any of you use your imagination to come up with something yourself please send me a link so I can try it out [ta Daisy
The Which Way Adventure
is a fantastically easy to complete point'n'click
adventure as it has a huge variety of endings, some of which you can get to in just 2 or 3 clicks, although it's a little harder if you count the manticore
ending as a failure. Will you become a hobo traveling the rails, join the circus, or cause the obliteration of the USA by hoards of Russian nuclear warheads? The possibilities are endless (well fairly limited actually but that doesn't sound so good).
WARNING: Before I get hoards of e-mails and comments about how useless this game is, I warn you now that if you are serious about your point'n'click gaming you might want to give this one a miss as it's only a simplistic bit of fun. Consider yourself warned - hold off on that comment button.
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.
