Hunting vigorously through the lazylaces archives for "point'n'click" unearthed the following results...
would be a much easier point'n'click
game if it loaded properly (it seemed to take a million attempts in Opera
- it does work eventually though) and:
But you don't want easy, do you? You want a challenge. You want to stretch your brain. You want adventure. You want your finger-tips to bleed from excessive point'n'click experimentation. You want to suffer to gain results. Nothing is too much...
...you want a walkthru, don't you? ;o) [thanks Susi K].
Well it's finally
Friday, which at Lazylaces means I normally post some musical type links as I like a bit of a bit of a singalong and dance to celebrate the coming weekend, but this week I don't have anything for you. I don't even have any quirky, arty-type, flash animations for you with witty, urbane, comments from yours' truely to make them even more poignant and wonderful. All I have is a collection of games. You're upset. I know you are. Well you could pretend just for me. Humour me. Go on...
First game of day is another film tie-in (part 6785 of a series). Sahara
sees you performing that old film staple of "do I cut the red wire, or the blue?", in a bomb diffusing kind of way. I'll call it a point'n'click game, but really it's like just one puzzle from a point'n'click adventure, and all you hardcore addicts will be disappointed by the lack of wastepaper baskets, Apple Macs, and waking up in darkness in a confused state. You'll still like it enough to try to be the first person to comment though, I know you will. Go on. I dare you.
P.S. Keep the game links coming obviously, but I'd love you loads if you did have anything vaguely unusual and/or animated and/or musical you'd like to send me for next Friday. The e-mail hyperlink is in the bottom-right of every page as usual. Ta.
of The Darkness
, which you may remember point'n'clicking
your way around earlier this year. This time the location changes from a house to a hospital, but you still wake up confused in the dark, and feel the need to escape, so don't worry about it all
being too new and different ;o)
Expect lots of blood in a point'n'click
game based in the home of Freddy Krueger
. Well, I say 'blood', if you expect lots of red scribbles that look like they were done in MS Paint you might be nearer the mark [thanks hewitt
A couple of murder mysteries
in a point'n'click
style for you to wile away some time with [thanks journey
If you are one of the few point'n'click
addicts that hasn't mailed me a link to Dona's Room
, this post means that you don't have to - step away from the send button now. Thank you all ;o)
Continuing the new trend of issuing point'n'click
games to promote film releases, Dark Water
does it's best to freak you out, and make you want to watch the film of course, whilst getting your mouse finger clicking.
Note: I hit a total non-ending whilst I was playing which I hope just meant I 'lost', if that was the actual ending you're not going to be very happy with this one.
The thing I like best about Dr. Metoro
is starting in the darkened room at the beginning. I was convinced for a while that it just wasn't compatible with my browser or was broken or something. With a bit more random clicking around than even in your normal point'n'click
adventure though I soon got started. Nice one.
Update: Oh....I've already completed it. A good challenge but a pretty naff ending. My only real tips are you have to stand in the right place to make the silicon mix, and the chess puzzle is very solvable with a little trial and error even with no real chess knowledge (well maybe just a little).
Dare I ask it, but does this
adventure remind you of the lengendary Samorost
, albeit it in a much more barren fashion? Whether it does or not though, I'm not sure where the "Indiana Jones" part of the game comes in, I mean it's good, but it's not like you're lashed to a lorry with a whip, or chased by a huge boulder down a tunnel...*shame* [thanks Lynn
Update: As always make sure your anti-virus software is up to date before visting a gamershood link, their site is notorious for giving out rather more than you bargained for, but it's nothing good AV software can't stop.
Not really a point'n'click
game as such, more a tour around the Simpsons' home
, but I just had to include it after finding prank call #1 on the phone (my favourite from the show) [thanks Buster H
In a choice of English, German and Italian languages, although definately written by Zee Germans
, The Asylum
, can be taken as either a very bizarre psychotherapy based point'n'click
game (can you cure the patients?), or an elaborate way of selling plushie toys. Either way that crocodile is very cute [thanks Sunshine Cekala
