Hunting vigorously through the lazylaces archives for "point'n'click" unearthed the following results...
In the saga of point'n'click
games first there was the era of "escape the room", then there was the era of the film tie-in, and now there is the era of the cute comic caper. Maybe anyway. There's lots of cute games today and the 3 Wish Rat
is a particularly good example. A lot harder than I was expecting when I first saw it [subbed by Hewitt, Ron, Justme & Kennymfk
The easiest, but still great looking, point'n'click
game ever. If you're stuck with Mr.Zhong
in any way, shape or form, be prepared to slap your forehead and exclaim "Doh!" in a loud Homer Simpson style when you get it. Shame on you if you ask for a walkthrough...[subbed by Justme & Hewitt
of Gorax's point'n'click
adventures, this time starting with hs dog, Nerberus, in tow. Given how close in name Nerbereus is to Cerberus
, I'm now getting worried about cute I think both these characters are. Is Graeme actually the devil in disguise...assume your best Hong Kong Phooey
! [submitted by Susi K, Ron & Hewitt!
is as cute as a button (I think that's how the saying goes - don't get me wrong I'm not some kind of ultra-weirdo who finds buttons cute), but I also think he's meant to be a little devil. Well he is red and appears to have horns. What does it say about me that I find the devil cute? Well we did establish yesterday at work that I have no morals, so that might explain it. Yes, if you have a moral dilemma, and need someone to tell you to do the wrong thing, come to me, you'll find I have a healthy disregard for scruples. Anyway, I digress, I believe there is a point'n'click
game to be played...[submitted by Susi K, Ron & Hewitt!
Kind of a French point'n'click
adventure meets platform game, I'm sure N.E.S.S.
will keep you amused...well it's more of a platform game than a point'n'click
adventure, I suppose....ok, it's more about blasting spiders with a big gun than anything else...er...ok it's more about getting pounced upon by large groups of spiders and getting killed is what it is. You know, maybe I'm not very good at this one?
Judging by the popularity of Hapland
I'm guessing Free The Balloon
will be another popular stickman point'n'click
puzzle. I don't know if I dare say it though, but these games just don't do it for me. Sorry. I guess I pine for the litter bins and Apple Macs of some other games I could mention. Still I'm guessing you'll all make something good of it [submitted by Ace
You know what I'm like with languages other then English, but while L'Affaire Lectron
might be in Portuguese, I'm fairly confident in saying, this time, that it's actually in French. I think it's something to do with an election, you can definately earn euros (randomly as far as I can tell - 4000 for answering the phone?) and spend them travelling the Metro. I'm afraid I haven't got much futher than that with this point'n'click
yet, but I'm sure you'll put me to shame by completing it by the time I'm up tomorrow [submitted by Susi K
The White Chamber
is an ideal point'n'click
game for a Sunday as you can start off by letting the 306mb download
arrive while you're eating a big Sunday lunch. Hmmmm....roast beef.
Anyway once you have it installed you start off in your usual point'n'click senario - dazed and confused with no idea where you are. Someone really should look into the large amount of abductions that are occurring these days. This time you're not just stuck in a room, but in a coffin, on a space station. Cripes! Then it's time to click your way around to see what you can find is this rather lush anime style-e adventure.
I've worked out how to get the power on, but I'd really like to know where I can find some pukka dna. I'm sure one of you will be able to help me out. Enjoy [thanks Yvonne].
The fifth and final game for this Friday (check down the page for the others lazybones), Wombat Tale
sees you farming Russian tomatoes for a group of Australian (but Russian speaking) wombats. This is quite easily the most surreal point'n'click
game of the year both in concept and execution, and I say that with some confidence even though it's only June now. I accidently poisoned my wombats (beware! the yellow tomatoes) which I think shortens the game.
has mailed me once again reminding me how cr*p I am at getting round to posting some of your links. To make up for my laziness, I not only post her favourite game(s), Stickman Murder Mysteries
, but her e-mail in full:
YOU STILL HAVENT POSTED THIS YET!!!
STICKMAN MURDER MYSTERIES!!!
the very first p&c game (besides myst) which got me absolutely hooked about
a year ago...or was that two...??
anyways, they're a troop of simply drawn (yet its a very GOOD kind of
simple!!) and slightly (or not so slightly) humerous pnc's ... despite the
title, theres nothing to be afraid of-- no faces jumping out at you, no
ominous music, and certainly nothing to escape. these are MY HERO.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE POST THESE THEY DO NOT EVER GET THE CREDIT THEY
Thanks honey. Sorry for the lateness. See more linky-ness from allegra here.
Missing the last tube
in the game
, is mainly more scary than in real life
, as in the game you have limited time periods of adventuring (it's point'n'click
esque, but you have to use that archaic keyboard thingumy on your 'puter which makes it a bit different) before something nasty
catches you, rather than in real life where you retire to the coziness of Maccy D's on The Strand
(it's open 24 hrs
) during the twilight hours, where it might be scary, but it has the benefit of being tasty as well. Not that that has ever happened to me
BTW: This is now 6786 in a series of film related games, proving once and for all that you can no longer release a film without an on-line game associated with it.
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].
