In jo99's freaky yet stylish point-and-click adventure/escape game Humanoid 47, you're helping a human guinea pig escape from the mad scientist who has been experimenting on him and other poor saps for quite some time. Minus the top of your head, you seize the opportunity to run one day, but now find yourself trapped in a bizarre maze of labs and failed experiments. Click around to interact, and use the arrows at the bottom of the screen to back away from things or turn around. Like The Queen of Snakes, there's no changing cursor, so you'll have to search everywhere and everything, and keep an eye out for clues hidden around the labs that will help you solve puzzles.

The biggest challenging in Humanoid 47 comes from figuring out what in the cluttered areas is actually useful or worth interacting with, so without a changing cursor for guidance you're unfortunately left to click your way around anything and everything to make sure you don't miss items or clues. To cut down on this, you'll probably want to explore everywhere you can first, since most required items and their uses tend to be abundantly clear when you see them, making it easier to go back and pick out what you need from the chaos of the labs. As in The Queen of Snakes, not only is the artwork beautiful and strikingly stylized, if potentially more disturbing this time around, the reliance on spotting puzzle-solving clues on bits of paper or scenery is back, forcing you to pay careful attention to your surroundings or anything that looks out of place. In a lot of ways, it feels like a cartoon from the late 70s, all creepy-freaky imagery and appealingly oddball design filled with colour. It's not particularly long, but it is particularly weird, and I mean that in the fondest way possible.
