Hunting vigorously through the lazylaces archives for "point'n'click" unearthed the following results...
Billed as not only the "hardest riddle on the internet" but also "NOT a point'n'click
" adventure, I'm fairly certain you guys will have something to say about this one
- even if it's only "I completed this months ago, what are you on about Graeme?". Enjoy, if you haven't seen it before.
IMPORTANT NOTE RE SPOILERS: Following a note from the author of the game requesting all spoilers be removed I've done my best to remove them all. Sorry to everyone who has had comments removed. Hints are ok but spoilers, like the name, suggests, spoil the fun of the game. I'll be periodically monitoring and removing any new spoilers.
It's rather an odd point'n'click
game, but you have to click around a lot to escape a room so the dark room
definately meets all the requirements. Graphically it reminds me a little of Tron
, which is a bit odd for this type of game.
Well here it is, MOTAS
pace). Considered by many to be the granddaddy of all point'n'click
games, I've been resisting posting it as I wanted to finish it before I did. However this is the New Years Link clearout and as I'm mailed a link to it every other week, and I haven't got round to playing it for so long, it's got to go. Maybe your comments
will finally help me finish the thing.
adventure stretches beyond the confines of just one web site with The Hiding Room
. An interesting development adding more depth to the game, but not quite as intense a method as employed by perplexcity
(thank goodness). One word of warning - this one has rich animations and graphics, which look good, but which means you can just about forget this one if you're trying to play on a slow connection.
Important Update: If you want to start this multi-site adventure you should really begin at helpmefindjon.com - The whole purpose of the game is to find Jon Harker, something I didn't realise initially as I found the Hiding Room site first.
Some slightly late (sorry) seasonal point'n'clickery
adventure as you do some Overtime At Santa's Factory
. Can you get your choice of present out the toy factory? Top tips are to remember to be good at the begining of the game - would Santa really try delivering you a present if you've been naughty, and refer to the 'in case of emergency' memo on the wall if you want to know what you need to do.
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
