Hunting vigorously through the lazylaces archives for "point'n'click" unearthed the following results...
They're not point'n'click
games but the 3 Alpha Team
adventures still have me hooked as they let me relive my passion for playing with lego. Now all I need to do is think of a way that playing these can be described as helping to do the work I'm meant to be doing today.
Escape From Rhetundo Island
is a nice, quirky, point'n'click
game which you should be able to picture from Lynn's succinct description:
"From the same guy that did Hapland
That's all you need to know I believe [subbed by lynn].
You're minding your own business sitting at your desk and a point'n'click
adventure arrives in a package
by post. Well it makes a change from waking up in locked rooms. You now have 15 minutes to solve it before you blow up. Typical. It's never good news is it? [subbed by hewitt, eb, & tafkam
Hey, now we get Lost
on UK television, the old "I am lost
" game has been removed (I didn't know what it was when I first played, and now it's one of my favourite shows). Anyway all is not... er... lost..., as there's the new Lost Survival Mission
to play with. Over to Merel for the info on this new, slightly unusual, point'n'click
The old ''I Am Lost'' game is gone, but now you can play this "Survival Mission''. Point, click and drag. You're on a tropical island, and you have to collect items to keep your health, water and food level ok. But you can only carry 8 items, you can discard them in order to pick up new items. Choose well, or else you'll die.
I love all things to do with Lost so I'm slightly biased on this one, but it is a fun game, and just like the series the jungle looks excellent

Hmmmm.... black and white graphics, funeral music, and a rapidly expanding collection of body parts. Combined with the fact that it's called "Penance
", you know that there's something deeply wrong in this little point'n'click
adventure [subbed and created by Paul W
Trapped in a room with no obvious way of escape? A familiar story which you'll be used to by now, but you love it, I know you do. Nightmare Escape
might follow a tried and tested point'n'click
storyline, but those bloody foot-prints on the floor suggest you really should try to get out as soon as possible, and judging by the fact that at least half the people that have submitted this have admitted they're doing so as they're stuck and need help, it might not be as easy as you would wish [subbed by hewitt, jack, gordon & chun
Girl Power! Just to prove that girls can be evil too (I always
suspected as much) the 3 main characters in Devil's Triad
are all ladies of a sort: Vampiress, Witch and female Ghost. You can select which you play as, but since they all meet up in the adventure it doesn't really matter which you choose, but my favourite was the vampiress. Whichever you pick, you end up hunting for objects for the other two, in this point'n'click
-esque (you actually use the cursor, and space, keys) quest. I haven't completed it yet, but my top tips so far are that some of the items seem very difficult to spot, and the music gets very irritating very quickly [subbed by foxy
Find the six objects, to help you solve the six energy related problems, in under nine minutes, in "Unplugged
". An educational point'n'click
game designed to teach Canadian kids how to save energy. I kid you not. To win you have to switch off your PC, and turn off the lights in your house. I kid you. Anyway game play-wise this is meant for kids so be very ashamed of yourself if you get stuck [subbed by tim, jackie & karlee
The graphics for Siegburgspiel
are fantastic - this is one good looking point'n'click
game. Unfortunately there's a lot of writing, and that writing is in German. Thus while it might look great, I don't know what you are meant to do! Could be the greatest game ever but I just can't work it out. If anyone out there can speak German and translate what is going on that would be great. For now I'm just wondering around and taking in the view.
Some people just play the point'n'click
games I post here, some people are nice enough to leave a comment or two to help others, and then again some people, like murtaugh
, go that extra mile and write a game of their own, and post that. Most commendable. Submachine
has some eerie music, cracking sound effects, and I haven't been able to work out any of the puzzles yet - which means it gets a big thumbs-up from me. Leave your impressions in the comments
, I'm sure murtaugh
will appreciate any feedback you have.
Maybe I've played too many point'n'click
games, (what am I saying? Surely there's no such thing as too much point'n'click
?), but I could have sworn I'd posted Thief
before. I can't find it in the archives though, so I guess something in the game is just ringing a bell in my head. Anyways... You're a Thief
(hence the name) in a scientist's house, and you have to find the code to gather the atom bomb secret from the safe before the 15 minute time limit runs out.... Just a regular Monday night then [subbed by deenoa, debra & lennart
Not entirely point'n'click
, get those cursor keys ready, but Griswold The Goblin
is an adventure that should keep you occcupied for a while - can you find the stolen gem? He also farts alot which made me giggle childishly [subbed by kara
