Treasure Hunters (a tie-in with some television series on NBC I have never seen) has expired so you cannot win the cash prizes anymore, but the game is still worth playing for the challenge (unless you are totally money driven of course). The game is a curious mix of point'n'click (with some nice graphics and sound), and puzzles (involving some web searching), and really works quite well. The idea of course is to find the treasure, but you'll have to satisfy yourself with the virtual, rather than real, kind. Note registration is required if that puts you off playing a game, but it seems harmless from my experience [subbed by eljordo & gordon].
point'n'click games people. At first they were happy with trapping us in a room and making it tricky to escape. But increasingly these days they are putting ten locks on the thing so that requires us finding 10 keys. Latest in line in this genre is Escape 3 which is damn tricky. Can you find all the keys and escape the basement? Can you even start? [subbed by Britchick, Helen, Kelly, Matt, Misty, winniethepooh & Mara].
The Legacy Of Pliskin returns, with some nicer graphics, in the logically titled point'n'click sequel The Legacy Of Pliskin 2. My only top tip is totally unrelated to completing the game - leave the game for a while to make him play with his PSP. Weird [subbed by winniethepooh, sopdox, Nefretit, Lost Enigma & Kara].
Grow Nano V1 replaces the speed clicking action of Grow Nano V0 with a hunt'n'click style to test out your point'n'click skills. Play all the way to the end to get an animated reward [subbed by Videocrazy, Tracey & crazy_nuts_2006].
Grow Series continues with a fun little diversion Grow Nano V0. It's more of a speed clicking contest than a point'n'click game, but I'm sure my shiny new laser mouse is more than up to the job [subbed by Lost Enigma].
Dracula's Riddle you have to "defeat" the evil count Dracula. To do this you have to venture through Transylvania by solving numerous riddles (more than 80). Some of the riddles are puzzles, some are brainteasers, for some riddles you have to use google to get knowledge etc. To solve it all intelligence, creativity and persistance is required [subbed by Daniel].
The Game", well Kevin writes to tell me that Part 2 and Delta are now available. Prepare to be very confused. He also included some links that might be useful:
Easy Escape is the easiest escape the room style point'n'click game ever. In fact it's not even really a game. Prepare to be disappointed [subbed by Priesty].
Stick Cricket. As an Englishman it is my duty to post this. Apparently [subbed by Nick G].
Mobai Room is a familiar tale of being trapped in a room and needing to escape with only your point'n'click skills to help you in your quest [subbed by Nicop, winniethepooh, Lost Enigma, Stacey, Big Russ, orly, pirate tink, Sophie & Snuffer].
Student Survivor (both episodes are on this link) could be called Sim-Student, as you control the life of the little student you create, feeding them, taking them to the pub, doing outrageous things like studying, and doing a lot of bank account checking (I don't remember doing this when I was a student, and I think it has a lot more to do with the sponsor, than reality) [subbed by Jim].
Locked Forever series continues with Locked Forever 4. Once again you have to point'n'click your way to finding the 10 keys to escape the room [subbed by Stacey, winniethepooh, Langy, Stacy & kamkiriad]. Site News: Normal Lazylaces service will be restored next week. I'm having a great time in case you were wondering :o)
