I like point 'n' click games, and I like metal. And B-movie grade plots? Sure.
But do all these things come together in The Rockin' Dead?

I've played this game through, I'm sure I haven't seen all of it, and I'm fairly certain a lot of people missed the point.
It is the quirky little title, Home.

Well, it's the last day of Jump 'n' Run Month, figured I might as well turn out a really good game for the last of the month!
Today we're looking at The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

Oddly I managed to mis-remember the subtitle in the hint yesterday, though it still makes just as much sense.
Today, we're looking at Flashback - The Quest for Identity (even though The Quest for Memory still works!)

Now, we looked at Magicland Dizzy a bit back, and after a fashion I knew I'd get back to the Dizzy series sometime.
Today we're taking a look at Dizzy - Prince of the Yolkfolk.

Few adventure games are set underwater where you're a dolphin - and this was a defining game in some ways: Ecco the Dolphin.
godboko got it first, I might have to make my clues a little harder again, hahaha!

Hmm, no correct guesses, perhaps the clues were harder than I thought.
A company known for their small sprites and quirky attitude... the increasingly inaccurately named Sensible Software. As for a game with platform, arcade and adventure (and insanity)... it can only be Wizkid.

Perhaps my clue was again a bit vague and a bit confusing. That said, there can't be many games featuring a red three-legged alien and a tall, orange alien.
It can't be anything other than ToeJam and Earl!

There weren't any right answers to yesterday's clues, but it was a bit oblique, I think. Think back to the Beatles, and specifically "I am the Walrus".
Not so much a walrus but what else is the song's narrator? He's the Eggman, and none moreso is the Eggman than Dizzy, of the Yolkfolk! And if we're talking about Dizzy, Prince Charming, and other fairy tale characters, we can only be talking about Magicland Dizzy!

Most people should know by now that the British have a very odd sense of humour, and that in that little island nation, we revere bad jokes as being rather sublime.
Today's game demonstrates that groan-worthy wit rather well. Forget James Bond, enter his aquatic associate - James Pond: Underwater Agent.
