Hunting vigorously through the lazylaces archives for "point'n'click" unearthed the following results...
More of Sabrina
's adventures for your point'n'click
ing delight (thanks to the commentators
for picking up on this gem
). Sangar Sabrina
is definately an easier game (use the tab
key if you really are stuck, but you shouldn't have to) but has a bit more of that lovely samorost
vibe - it doesn't come close to the original
in my book though.
I'm working hard at the moment. The snow I saw in Aberdeen at the weekend (pics to follow as soon as I get round to unpacking) has followed me back to London. I need cheering up. What I need is a really good new point'n'click
game. What I need is another installment of samorost
-esque goodness. And what do you know? There is one
. Stop what you are doing and get playing now!
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
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 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
