If you're a point'n'click
addict waking up in a strange room after drinking too much last night will be a very familiar and crimson
-esque experience. For the rest of you I warn you now before you escape the room
you may want to order a new mouse for when you, very quickly, wear your current one out [ta to newgrounds, the hosts, and looby for the link
Are you feeling cruel? Kill the cute little Ewoks before they get you with their sling-shots
. I guess the premise of this game, killing Ewoks, makes you a member of the evil Imperial Forces since surely the Ewoks wouldn't attack the Rebel Alliance. Then again perhaps I'm displaying rather too much Star Wars knowledge to be let out in public. You'll have to excuse me now, I have to go and convert my Mini to look like a Tie-Fighter.
Mental Note: Get out more.
Ring ring ring...
. Not an annoying fruit based song
, but a rather strange and creepy variety of point'n'click
game (I'm not sure that's totally the right category for this one, but you'll get the idea). Try and enjoy this high brow immersive flash thing courtesy of aooa
, even if I have got that
song going round your head now [ta chockie
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 seasonal athletic gameplay with Nordic Chill
. Take part in the cross country skiing, shooting, ski jump and curling. I actually thought the curling was the best bit, but it's the end part of the game so you'll need to have patience.
I've just scratched the very tip of the iceberg in playing Perplexcity
- it seems you need to get really immersed in it, and it's more a long term project than a simple game. If you thought it took a long time to play some of those point and click adventures this is going to seem ridiculous. From the first couple of pages you just have to hunt for the hidden links, but after that there's a whole world out there waiting for you to investigate. I used the Project Syzygy primer
to bring me up to speed with what on earth was going on with the game which I can highly recommend.
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.
Did you know you can download the original Doom
for free? Did you know it's only 4.3Mb in Size? Did you know that includes a networking capability so that on a quiet day in the office, like New Year's Eve, you can turn a dull afternoon into a two hour fragfest? I found out today and I had to share the news with you.
