Waterbusters!. Cue Graeme singing the A-Team theme music for no good reason... Anyway, back to the game... Waterbusters is a cursor key driven point'n'click game in which you try to save water around the home. A great little game for the kids to play [subbed by winniethepooh].
Stella Artois L'Etranger. The first challenge is to select the right glass (not difficult when one of them has "Stella Artois" written on it), and then get the pouring of the beer just right; selecting the inclination of the glass and so on. This second part is quite hard, as the controls seem to go a bit weird and I think it might be a bit buggy if you ask me (that's my excuse anyway). My "buggy theory" was vindicated when the game got stuck in a loop and made me watch the same beer being poured three times. Fortunately though I find the pouring of beer mesmerizing [subbed by JhInG].
the note I got the other day about the upcoming release of The Second Door, it came as no surprise to receive another semi-cryptic note last night (I do enjoy a good cryptic note) telling me that The Second Door is available as of today. Time to unpack, and dust off, your best brain puzzle fans! Here's that email in full for you:
I need your help, the time has come again. The First Door failed, the people chasing me found me first. This time things will be different, this time things will end another way. The Second Door will open. A new path will be revealed. Please, find me. Solve the puzzles once again. Each door will contain a picture, a riddle that you need to solve to open the door and move on. Nothing will be hidden in the source code and the pictures do not need to be altered. Again, all the answers you give are there to help or hinder. Some will lead you to my new location, some will lead others away from me. This time we will succeed. With your help I can escape those chasing me. The Second Door opens, the quest begins anew. This Monday morning everything restarts. Find me again...
Reliz since the text at the begining of this point'n'click game, where the goal of the game is probably all explained, is in Russian (?), which I'm not too good at (ie I don't understand a word). The game is based in a house, and looks great, but I have not found an external, locked, door yet, so I'm guessing we are not escaping the house, for a change, so my bet, for now, is on it being something to do with the locked chest under the stairs [subbed by MsInterpret & winniethepooh].
Monster Tracker you must point'n'click your way around a spooky house tracking down all the monsters inside along the way. A perfect game for the kids to play, and the rest of us if we're completely honest with ourselves, in the run up to Halloween [subbed by Misty, Ducky632, kelly, Greg, MsInterpret & K. Engels].
Onamis 2: Le Conteneur sees you frantically point'n'clicking around trying to escape some sort of container (yes, I did use Google to translate the title), driving yourself mad, only for you to discover that you do indeed have a screw loose (play the game to see how bad my pun is). This great looking game, with some nice sound effects, is the tricky (well I'm stuck) follow up to Onamis [subbed by Nicop].
Tribute to Grow is... er... a tribute to... er... Grow. Everyone seems to be having a little trouble finding the correct order to point'n'click everything in to complete it though, so get cracking and see if you can't help each other out [subbed by Raeden & oxyacetylene].
Robin Hood Games: A collection of fine looking games (only one released so far) to run alongside the new Robin Hood series on the BBC. Game one involves a little bit of arcade archery action. Let me know if you get this to work and you are outside the UK (work's fine here in the UK for me), the last BBC game had an annoying UK only restriction [subbed by Nefretit].
Eternity Mystery, but I don't really understand any of them. I got killed by some sort of demon on the castle one though. Which was nice. Perhaps you can make some sort of sense of them with your point'n'click skills [subbed by JhInG].
Castle Calamity with only a, somewhat feeble, torch to guide you. You'll need to find the key on each level to unlock the door to the next level (but I'm guessing finding keys is something you are probably getting good at now). This is another great one for the kids to play, especially in the run up to halloween, although I did not see much evidence of the advertised "hauntedness" whilst I was playing [subbed by JhInG].
Kmart Haunted House is a great point'n'click game (although you use the cursor keys and space bar for this one) for the whole family to play, including the kids. The idea of the game is to find your way out of the haunted house without becoming too scared. There's some nice graphics and sounds along the way, and I love the "spooky" music [subbed by Mantari & kelly].
The Adventures Of Nestor Pasnet gives us the seedy world of the private eye in point'n'click form. I'm loving the feel of this one; the look, the sounds, and some excellent voice acting create a great atmosphere [subbed by MsInterpret].
