point'n'click adventures. Thank you Quantum Energy Adventure! I never totally trust games that I think are trying to teach me something, but this one has a cool mini-game involving pipes, so I'll let it off [subbed by nej].
last Nekoryokan game was made trickier by only being available in Japanese, but part 2 of the point'n'click adventure also has English translations, so I should strain my brain less this time. The obsesssion with cats continues though [subbed by helanren & anonymous].
point'n'click game for your playing pleasure in the Last Minute Escape The Room. Just how unlucky do you have to be to get locked in all these rooms? Just as well we love escaping so much. This one is a bit weird as someone is watching you (aren't they?) from behind the window in one of the walls. Is this point'n'click a scientific experiment, or have the point'n'click police finally caught up with you (what's are the charges? Willfull abuse of the [TAB] key? Which BTW doesn't work in this one). Anyway I'm rambling, enjoy the game [subbed by Jochen].
Escape To Obion Episode II is now on-line! A lovely picture and some words of point'n'click wisdom will follow later when I finish work [thanks Brian]. Update: I've now had time to add a picture to this post and actually start to play the game a bit. Do you think part 2 was already in the pipeline when Part 1 was released, or do these guys just have the fastest production times ever? Either way this game is another quality item, with some great graphics and tricky puzzles. The question is though, does this mean that we can expect part 3 next week? I certainly hope so.
Rat Room is a point'n'click game where we have to escape the room, and it also features sudoku? Sweet. I could ask for more, but that would just be greedy [subbed by flooor].
No Circles is an addicting flash game (sidenote: I'm not sure when things became addicting, rather than addictive, but I like it) that's not totally unlike Red Square from the other day. The only thing it's missing is a clear scoring system for us to take screenshots of to prove how l33t we are [subbed by julia].
Honda has another expensive ad out on TV for the new Civic, some people think it's great and have submitted it for linkage (remember cog?), but personally I hate the ad as it hardly features the car, which I love and I think it could sell itself without all that fancy nonsense. The old Honda Civic has the image of an old mans' car, but I love the new model, could this be the new Lazylaces-mobile? Maybe. But I'm waiting for the Type-R in the new model. I feel the need, the need for speed (and if anyone could lend me some cash that would be great).
Google Earth ages ago, but somehow I just hadn't found the time to play with it, but I saw Preeti and Simon playing with it today and it got me really investigating the thing. Basically, even though Google isn't top of my Christmas card list at the moment (a long story for another time soon), Google Earth is about the best thing ever since sliced cheese. Pan, tilt, zoom & fly around the world with maps, directions, restaurant locations, you name it, it's there. Superb [also subbed by Sherry, Sniffles, Robin, & Nick P].
JB's superb new point'n'click murder mystery, Jack French #1: All Roads Lead to Paradise, which I was getting all excited about yesterday has now been released on newgrounds. Before I go any further I should mention the game contains some adult themes so children, the easily offended, and workers with the boss looking over their shoulder should look away now, the rest of us though are in for a treat. Here's JB's description:
A young college student is found dead in her cozy apartment... But who would want to kill an innocent Japanese girl? Is it an accident, a murder or a suicide? Play the part of Detective Jack French, collect clues and conduct interviews with the suspects to break down the case.The game has great graphics, nice sound and music, and a good plot, but best of all the voice actor for Jack French reminded me of Francois Berleand, which is a superb thing in my book [subbed by quick off the mark Kara, and subbed & created by, JB].
point'n'click games at the moment, or perhaps more accurately there are lots of point'n'click games at the moment, but we're playing through them at a furious rate (*slaps* all round), so just to whip you up into a frenzy here are a few "comming soon" items to look forward too. First up Nearly Departed, an adventure where you play a zombie with amnesia, next Nelly The Wonder Dog, "When Nelly's favourite ball is stolen by a greedy beaver, the clever springer spaniel sets off on a wild adventure to get it back!", and finally there's the point'n'click murder mystery the screen shot above is from, which I have my eager grubby paws on now, and which will be online for all soon [thanks adam & jean].
Red Square Escapa is a game that tests the old hand-eye co-ordination in a way that the point the click adventure never can. The object of the game is to move the red block around without getting hit by the blue blocks, or touching the black walls. If you can go longer than 18 seconds you are phenomenal. It's been said that the US Air Force uses this for fighter pilots. They are expected to go for at least 2 minutes... You know the cold war is well and truely over when the US Air Force is training in the red square. Ho ho ho... sorry I have no sense of humour on a Tuesday, how many days until the weekend? You're kidding aren't you? [subbed by kelly].
Sia, occasional singer with Zero 7, is one of my favourite artists so I'd heard Breathe Me before, but I never realised the video was so fantastic - it's built of a series of 1000's of polaroids and is a great thing to watch even if you don't like the music (*shame* on you if you don't though). BTW: While I'm on the subject of music, and since it's ages since I've done this kind of thing, this week I am mainly listening to Arctic Monkeys, and Bedouin Soundclash. What's tickling your eardrums this week???
