This game pretty much epitomises everything about the golden age of point and click adventure games – beautiful retro graphics, mind-bending puzzles and lots of daft characters and dialogue. You play the “bum”, a homeless guy who uses an old sock to communicate with the world (yes you read that correctly!). He loves football but loses it to a random bully – can he find an ally, team up with them, defeat the bully and get his ball back?

Of course he can – with your canny puzzle-solving prowess, obviously. Available in English, German and Polish. The Bum is a joy to play from start to finish.
