Hunting vigorously through the lazylaces archives for "point'n'click" unearthed the following results...
Trapped Episode 1 you have to escape the room, by using your finely honed point'n'click skills. And when I say finely honed I mean finely honed, some of the places you have to click are tiny, and don't think that the [TAB] key is going to save you either [via nordinho].
Enschouse it's not in English, at points it's very hard to control, and there's no real end. In fact I couldn't get passed the sliding puzzle at all without using the [TAB] key to find a hidden hotspot. So why am I including it? Well it looks great, and I really wanted it to be a full blown point'n'click adventure rather than the dead end it turned into. Hopefuly the author will come back to it and finish it off some day [via doodoo.ru]. Footnote: A big thanks to doodoo.ru for entertaining me this Sunday and letting me catch up with some Point'n'clickery I obviously missed first time round (even if some of the advertising it carries is a little dubious).
Haunted House Massacre is not a game to let the kids play. That much you may have guessed from the name. It's a very simple to complete point'n'click horror based adventure, with some nice atmospheric bits (play with the lights down, and the volume up). The major let down is that you can complete the game without even visiting the majority of the rooms that build the tension up, even if you do though the game is over all too quickly [via doodoo.ru].
Find Small Men is a point'n'click game, and if you look at the picture above you might be thinking "there's a computer on a desk, with a wastepaper basket right next to it - this is obviously an escape the room style game". Well wrong. This is something completely different. Your task is to find all of the smalll men (they're like talking Jelly babies) hidden in each level, against a time limit. If you fail you have to go right back to the begining, and the small men change position every time you play, which makes cheating pretty hard. Unless you use the [TAB] key. But I know you would never do that [via doodoo.ru].
Nyctalopia is a very surreal little point'n'click game, which really is quite different. Finding codes, collecting objects, and solving a rebus (!) are all methods used to progress between levels. Very nice, but very bizarre [via doodoo.ru].
5 Days A Stranger, then you'll be pleased to know that the point'n'click follow up game, 7 Days a Skeptic, from the same author is also available as a free download. Once again the link to do the download requires a bit of hunting but it's well worth the effort. This one is set in the future, aboard The Mephistopheles, a small ageing spacecraft:
The crew of the Mephistopheles discover an unknown artefact floating unprotected in deep space: an ancient metal locker. Ignoring advice from the Federation to leave it for a research vessel, the captain brings it aboard and prepares to lift the lid...
5 Days A Stranger is yet another large-ish point'n'click adventure available for download. I think I prefer playing these on-line, rather than having to download and install, but hey, I'll take a quality point'n'click adventure wherever I can find it. So what's 5 Days A Stranger all about? I'll hand over to the author's description as it's much better than anything I'll come up with:
Get in, get the loot, get out... that's how it usually goes for master cat burglar Trilby. But after he breaks into the supposedly vacated country manor erstwhile of the aristocratic DeFoe family, he quickly finds that things are not that simple. Together with a group of strangers, he finds himself imprisoned by some invisible intelligence. A force prepared to do anything to keep them there. Up to and including murder... As the killings begin and suspicion threatens to tear the group apart, it's up to Trilby to unite his squabbling companions and destroy the supernatural entity that victimises them. But what exactly is it? What is the dark secret attached to DeFoe Manor? And what is the significance of the masked maniac who haunts their dreams?Excellent. Note: The links to download the game (there are a few to choose from) are about halfway down the linked page [subbed by Kim].
Find The Love is a very easy (especially level 1 and especially if you use the map), but lovable, point'n'click game. You play a little boy dog chasing the love of his life, a little girl dog with a flower in her hair. There are no objects to collect, not even a stick, you just have to choose the right path to take. At the end of each level you are given a password, and a link to the next level. Copy the password and paste it into the box at the start of the next level. There are only 3 levels here, but the parting on the boat at the end suggests that there is at least one more level somewhere. Let me know if you find it.
Heart Key, Heaven's Key gives you another chance to do a bit of room escaping to hone your point'n'click skills. And to brush up on your Japanese. And it's against the clock. Good luck [subbed by f00].
post one game for download and another arrives almost immeadiately in my inbox. Perhaps there is an untapped source of point'n'click adventures here? Anyway, the first challenge with Wonderworld is to work out how to download it - while you can chose to play in a variety of languages (including English you'll be glad to hear) the download site is in Norwegian. Look for "Nedlasting" (Norwegian for download) in the right hand column, and you shouldn't have any problems. Once you have the game loaded the idea of the thing is to save the world (that old chestnut). What could be simpler? [subbed by vivian]
Out Of Order appears to be worth it, as it's quite a big point'n'click adventure for you to really get your teeth into. Oh, and did I mention it was free. No? Well it is. The game starts with you (and, curiously, your bedroom) being kidnapped, with the rest of the bizarre plot stemming from that. I'm sure you'll work it out. One word of warning, despite the cartoony graphics and wacky music, there are a few mildly adult jokes so don't unleash it on the (young) kids. You should enjoy it though [subbed by Tenacious Stu, Mike, Sandy & Stationary].
point'n'click game, I'm guessing because very few of us speak Slovakian. I've heard it called "Escape The Lonely Island", "Escape The Beach" & "Ostrov", among others, I've settled for "Ostrov Island". Anyway, whatever it's called, you're definately stuck on an island, and it's a Slovakian island, which makes understanding all the little notes and instructions a little tricky. Unless you're Slovakian, of course [subbed by tia & winniethepooh].
