Electocity the other day, if indeed, you got it to load at all, if you started pining for SimCity you'll be pleased to hear that you can play SimCity Classic Live on-line for free. But you have to register. Which some people hate. And it only seems to work in Internet Explorer because of some ActiveX control you have to install. Which are two more things some people hate. And on reflection after all these years the graphics suck, maybe they even sucked at the time I can't remember now. Which even more people hate. But if you are a play-ah, and not a hate-ah, head on over and register now [subbed by sean r.].
Funny Quest, like Piranahas, manages to combine collecting keys to escape a room, with actually being a point and click game. It's an outrage I tell you! Anyway, see how many levels of this you can complete, by manoeuvring the keys to the locks, before the theme music drives you clinically insane. BTW - turning the volume down is cheating...

Murtaugh is the absolutely excellent news that a new point'n'click game, "Submachine: Future Loop Foundation", the latest in his Submachine Series, has been released today. Here's the official game description, since I'm too eager to get off and play to write up my own:
In Submachine FLF (Future Loop Foundation) you find yourself locked in a padded room with only an ancient tape player at your feet. From this strange beginning unfolds an amazing mystery that you can solve in a world where memories are the key to the past, present, and future! Who are you, and why can't you remember how you got here? Who is the Future Loop Foundation? What do they want, and why are they holding you prisoner? Play Submachine FLF and solve the riddle for yourself![subbed and created by Murtaugh].
Leo Himura's No Exit sees you waking up in bath with no idea of how you got there. Not that I've been invited to that kind of party in many years. Anyway, as you might expect from years of point'n'click gaming the bathroom you are trapped in is curiously complex to escape, with the obvious door option not working, and it's going to take a little bit more effort that simply turning a handle to escape the room [subbed by f00, Nicop & Eric].
Piranahas you must collect the keys to open the trapdoor and escape the cave, but even though that desciption might make it sound like it is, this is not a point and click adventure. Piranahas is an arcade game, using the stunningly unpopular combination of cursor key controls (and [space] for actions), in isometric layout. The levels are against the clock (watch your "air"), there are obstacles and leaping piranhas to avoid, and bonuses, as well as keys, to collect [subbed by winniethepooh].
Thief Of Laurentum is the latest point'n'click episode in The BBC's Roman Mysteries series. And before you tell us all how simple it is, and how fast you completed it, please remember this is a kids game, so save boasting about your l33t p'n'c skills for some other game, as doing on this one will just make you look silly [subbed by vmklover].
Candy and Clyde is a fast-paced, simple, but fun, "point'n'click meets arcade" game. Each level has a different task to complete against the clock, with a nice theme if you pick Candy to perform it, or a naughty bias if you choose Clyde. I haven't run out of time on a level yet, but after a while you start going through the same levels again, but they seem a little harder, and I assume the time limit decreases. In total you have 3 lives to play around with to rack up as many points as possible [subbed by Murtaghrox22].
Erik's Escape The Room 6 continues the Erik's Escape Series by pandering once again to our irresistible urge to escape any given room we are enclosed in by using our point'n'click skills [subbed by U2isdebest & higgo].
Electrocity you take control of a town, and particularly it's energy resources (the game is sponsored by a New Zealand energy company), and your job is to make everyone living there happy, contented, and fully supplied with electric. A great looking little, SimCity-esque, game that sounds like it's going to take a while to play, but even with 150 turns (at which point the game ends) it's quite a short diversion [subbed by anon].
Fit The Position is an odd little graphical puzzle of multiple levels. The nearest analogy I can think of to the game is those shaped blocks you used to have to hit into the right shaped hole with a wooden hammer when you were very little. I think I remember a game like that anyway. If not, then my parents armed me with an actual hammer when I was a toddler... Anyway, this game is the same sort of deal, fitting the right shape into the right space, and is also child's play, at least for the first few levels, then it gets a bit trickier as you progress [subbed by f00].
*DOWNLOAD ALERT*DOWNLOAD ALERT*DOWNLOAD ALERT*Sorry for the major alert, but I know that a lot of people play these games at school/work and may not be able to download/install games, but this one is worth it, so maybe save it until you get home if it's not an option where you are now? And be warned, even if you can download and install, What Makes You Tick? comes in at around 30MB, and whatever your connection speed it's darn slow to arrive. Find something else to do, a nice cup of tea, or a beer, while it arrives. Anyway, warnings out of the way... What Makes You Tick? is a great looking, and sounding, point'n'click game, with a classy style of it's own. In the game you play Nathan, sent by his University to deliver an important message to a retired professor, Dr Coppelius... but while searching around the professor's last known residence, Nathan discovers that he's not the only person seeking the old man and his brilliance...

Wanpa Quest: Tencho Dungeon your guess is as good as mine as to what is going on. That is: We're clueless. At least I am. By name it continues the Wanpa Series, but it seems to be a departure from the other games, with battles (against what looks like pots or plates), an HP system, collecting leaves, point'n'clicking random bits of grass, rocks & pots, around a "tencho dungeon". Confused? You will be... [subbed by higgo].
