Hunting vigorously through the lazylaces archives for "point'n'click" unearthed the following results...
I'd love to say there's some clever joke about posting a game called 1 Time Never
for post 1111
, but I'll be damned if I'm intelligent enough for that kind of thing. Shear coincidence only I can assure you. Anyway...
Even though One Time Never doesn't find us trapped in a room with an Apple Mac that we inexplicably want to escape (are all these games' designers PC fans or something?), it still manages to be a point'n'click game, so you can dust down that left click button and get to it. It seems to get harder as you go, but I don't think I've got too far yet... shouts for help etc in the comments as usual.
I don't know where I am...I don't know what I'm doing here...I just know I have to get out. Familiar Story? Connoisseurs of the point'n'click
are used to getting inexplicably trapped in rooms they desperately want to escape from by now, but that doesn't stop you does it? The Doors
sees you trapped in a room with lots of doors out (gettit?), if you're naive you might think one of them leads directly to the exit, but I'm afraid these things are never that simple my friend [thanks meme
The deceptively simple world of hapland
has been frustrating point'n'click
ers for a while now, but has been curiously missing from the world of lazylaces
. Now however this oversight has been rectified. That's your Thursday f**ked.
Strictly for the hardcore point'n'clicker
(well if you don't speak/read japanese anyway) swan's room
was causing a stir in the comments
so here it is in it's own right. Help from anyone who could translate the thing for us would be much appreciated...(btw - is it me or is there always a mac
in these rooms we get trapped in?).
Hold the front page! Hold whatever you are doing! You have to play this now! Point'n'click
game? Check! Beautiful graphics? Check! Magical sounds? Check! Ability to distract you from whatever you should be doing? Check! If Shift
doesn't make you all warm and fuzzy inside you're a cold hearted beast I tells yer! Monday blues be gone! Too many exclamation marks? Maybe! *Deep breaths*

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.
