Surf Swell Island is a great game from Disney intended for kids, if you want to teach them all about internet safety. Not my cup of tea at all, but what it's trying to do is an unfortunate necessity and they do it very well. Note: if you're a parent and want to check it out before letting your kids loose on it I recommend playing it to a soundtrack of Gay Bar by Electric Six. It livens the whole thing up a bit and makes it a bit more "adult". That's my top reviewers tip! [subbed by sunshine].
point'n'click game. Who knows if it's simple or hard? Just understanding it is the first challenge. Due to the language barrier I had almost convinced myself that there was no game to be played with Miniminiroom when I accidently unlocked the door and let myself into the room (hang on - isn't that the wrong way round?), having closed the browser window more than once by pressing on the blue button (don't do it!). Anyway as you'll see from my screen grab there is a room in there in a more traditional point'n'click sense, but there's a very weird menu navigation thing going on too. Anyway, I'm sure you'll work it all out [subbed by sunshine].
point'n'clickery lurking in my inbox from while I've been sick. First up Lenny Goes To Pluto, an adventurous romp around the Solar System's most remote planet. Actually didn't they discover another planet further out, just recently? What did they call that? Anyway the graphics are simple but cute, and it's quite funny in places. I like how he taps his toes when you leave him for a while. I remember this from a video game in my youth, the exact name of the game escapes me at the moment though [subbed by toonafeesh].
this link is ultra efficient. The 75 from Virgin Digital, looks like it's just a weird picture, but in it there are 75 symbolically represented bands or solo artists. For example, the flower cart in the bottom left would give you "Guns 'n' Roses". Name all of them, it's as simple and frustrating as that [subbed by gherkin].
Samorost 2 is finally out today which I had to share with you all. Enjoy.
point'n'click games, at first there was puzzled 1, then came puzzled 2, and now, can you guess, there is puzzled 3. Did you guess right? Happy puzzling people [via nordinho].
point'n'click'n'keyboard adventure with Dots And Diamond the dog and cat chums: In Smugglers Cove, as the sun goes down, our heroes Dots and Diamond are soon to bed. Suddenly the telephone rings. It's the curator from the Museum - his voice fast and frantic: "My dear Dots and Diamond - the most terrible thing has happened : The Mummies have come ALIVE!". Take a deep breath, summon up all your courage, and help Dots and Diamond solve "The Mysterious Case of the Missing Mummies" [subbed by leah].
point'n'click game created by the Sacramento Area Water Works Association, but that's exactly what Mr. Leaky's House is. It's intended to teach kids about conserving water, so be ashamed of yourself if you find it difficult. There are 5 water saving puzzles in the game to solve, it all looks very nice, but it is, unsurprisingly, very easy. Right I'm off to run a bath... [subbed by skittle].
MorFits Quest is a cute and addicting little game. Provide your MorFits with all their needs to make them develop, develop enough Morefits to the right level and you progress to the next stage. They're very cute when they start reading [subbed by jackie k].
Flash Trek : Broken Mirror sees you cruising around space trading and fighting with other space craft, in a universe seemingly based losely around the Star Trek series. It's a huge game, and quite impressive, but it's just not my bag baby. However Adam is going to mail me until the end of time if I don't post it, so here it is. If this is your cup of tea, enjoy, personally I'm still checking that Samorost 2 web site every 5mins in case the game has been released [subbed constantly by adam].
Sweety is an arcade game. I know. What has come over me? Anyway the idea of the game is to save Tweety from the boiling oil by batting him with your tennis racquet. However since Tweety, to my eye, seems to be related that bloody frog (if you follow UK television advertising) I recommend letting him die horribly in the oil. Or better still make the effort to bat him up to the spikes and impale him [subbed by paul].
Hopping Ham? Cute little fella wasn't he? Well his Syberian cousin (who's grey rather than brown) brings us more oh-so-cute point'n'click gaming adventure in "Hopping Ham Goes North". Be prepared for a sunflower click-fest, you'll understand what I mean when you get there [subbed by anonymous].
