Hunting vigorously through the lazylaces archives for "point'n'click" unearthed the following results...
Definately in the category of "difficult", due to the language, Memory
is a great looking point'n'click
game, I especially like the cut scenes as you move, although there is an incredibly long load time at the begining to get through before you get all this graphical lovliness (and that medusa statue thing is rather to detailed and eerie for my liking). I'm still looking around all the rooms at the moment, but I'm assuming we have to "escape the apartment", I can't tell for certain because of the language thing, but you know how it is with these point'n'click
things, you usually have to escape something
Death In Sakkara
is a point'n'click
adventure from the BBC
which lets you learn some history while you are playing. It's rather beautiful to look at, but there's quite a lot of 'talking', which I know not everyone likes in these things, but it doesn't bother me too much. I also liked being transported to Egypt because it's a rainy, dark, day here in London
today (that link shows the nearest web cam to where I work!). Anyway, enjoy your travels...
is a point'n'click
game, but I'm too busy playing the sub-game, "guess the language", to work out the pointy and clicky bits right now. I'm tending towards something Scandinavian - in fact I'm going to guess "Norwegian", I think they have those "o"'s with a strike through them like old skool computer zeros.

Update: Darn it's Danish - I was wrong - thanks folks.
You are out trick or treating in your ghost costume when it starts raining. What are you to do? Take refuge in the big scary house of course! Oh dear, the door shuts behind you and you are trapped. Well, I didn't see that coming. Jinx
might not have the most original storyline in the world, it might be immensely easy to work out the puzzles (really they are very easy), but it's also oh so cute. I had a smile on my face the whole time I was playing - brighten up a few minutes of your Tuesday with Jinx
Update: I even liked the cheesy ending. I can't wait for episode 2, no matter how easy this was.
The first submachine
was very popular so I was pleased to hear from murtaugh that there is now a new extended version
If you've played Submachine before and think you've seen it all... think again. In this extended version there are twice as many rooms to explore and twice the fun. Solve the new puzzle and see the altered ending.take a sneak preview of the Submachine 2 before its even finished.
If you're an submachine addict already, think of this as a warm up for the sequel to this game.
is a puzzle in a not pr0n
style with pretty graphics - which is no bad thing [via nordinho
It's not not pr0n
, but This Is Not Po*n
. But it's not dis-similar. Right that's enough nots they're getting me in knots, much like this puzzler that's not (I said that was enough "nots" - ed) a point'n'click
game, but that kind of brain will definately come in handy. Not. Arrrrggggh! [subbed by justin, pigbuster & vb
I haven't really had time to play Aquaria
, I'm still not back at my home PC, but it looks like a very promising point'n'click
er. From a quick look round the graphics are very good. My guess without reading whaever language it's in, and without having completed it, is to escape the aquarium, so it should be some relatively familiar territory for you [subbed by Liza & Madam Mayhem
I'm not a big fan of Waking The Dead
on television, but it's watchable if I'm near a TV when it's on, and as usual the bbc
web team have come up trumps with the web game
associated with the series - a nice slice of point'n'click
murder investigation. I'll hand you over to Tracyjay, who submitted the link, for the detailed description:
Fed up of watching this or any other cop drama and screaming at the telly "Its obvious who dunnit!"? Well have a go at this gory game.
You are a member of the Cold case team, you don't have to have watched the programme to play, though it helps speed things up if you know the characters. There is a time limit, and no, I didnt solve it...yet. It helps to make notes or maybe I am just thick. Anyway cool graphics, and gory storyline. Enjoy!

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
