Escape from Octlien

escapeoctlien.jpgJohnBFrom Aztec, creator of Escape from Island and The Shrine, comes yet another superbly crafted point-and-click adventure game, Escape from Octlien. The sci-fi themed title drops you inside a spaceship with very little information on what you're supposed to do. Explore the environment, collect items, and try and make your way through this lengthy and challenging game.

Controls in Escape from Octlien are as simple as any online adventure — just click the items you want to interact with. Arrows appear on the edges of the screen to navigate and you use items by dragging them onto the object you want to use them on. To examine and interact with items, slide one over to the "check" button.

The puzzles are rarely easy to solve and usually include a number of steps before you see tangible results. For example, one item may give you access to a room where you'll find another item that fits in part of a puzzle located halfway across the ship. This doesn't feel frustrating or lead to mindless backtracking, it just adds to the intruigue. Your sense of accomplishment is broken into bite-sized pieces that keep your appetite for the game burning strong.

As with Aztec's other releases, the visuals in Escape from Octlien are stark but well-implemented. Sound effects are all but non-existent but fit the game extraordinarily well. A mysterious atmosphere is successfully created using as few elements as possible.

One of the best point-and-click adventure games released in the last few months from a developer that's quickly building a reputation for impressive games.

Walkthrough Guide


(Please allow page to fully load for spoiler tags to be functional.)

Alright here's the Complete Walkthrough with 100% completion:

  1. You get dropped off in some kind of garbage heap. Grab the shovel, ladder, and behind the rock on the bottom right pile is a wheel type thingy. The white box and the paper type thing can be moved but there's no purpose (as far as I can tell) Grab onto the crane once you're done here.

  2. The crane pulls you up to the next level. On the right try and find a panel on the wall you can click, it will reveal a small pink "Octsaurus Plate." Pick it up as well as place the wheel thing you grabbed from below on the hole to the right of the crane you came up by. Rotate it once to open up the door and go through.

  3. On the left wall of this room you can click a panel to reveal a pink "Octpus Plate." Grab it and leave, that's it for this room.

  4. Notice the colored panels on each side of the door in front of you (it changes for each game so I can't help you there.) Go to the left first.

  5. You can enter the color code from the previous screen on the panel on the top left which will open the door. Before you go through though, click the panel on the right wall to get a weird pink thing. Drag and drop this onto the "Check" box in your inventory and click on the item once to reveal that it is a "Laser Sword." Cool. You can open a panel on the bottom left and open the panel with the sun symbol, but there's nothing there. Move through the door.

  6. In the next screen all you need to do is click on the plug by that huge thing. There's a panel to the top right you can click on but its useless, and you could move on but you can't do anything in there...yet. Head back to the door with the color codes and this time take a right.

  7. Now you're in the hallway to the right of the color coded door. You can plug in your other code at the top right panel, but this time click on the bottom right panel to reveal a key, and the panel with the sun symbol has a weird circle-thingy which you can grab. head through the door.

  8. Grab the lab coat and drag it to the "Check" box. Now click on the lab coat's left pocket to get a satellite controller. Press the green button to turn it on and the yellow button to call up the satellite. Click on the middle pod on the left side of this room to reveal a pink keycard. The cat is useless right now (you can try to attack it with your sword, but it has some alien kitty-cat shielding device.) Go through the door ahead.

  9. Robots are coming off of an assembly line here...cool. Take your laser sword and start hacking this place to bits...actually, just cut the pipes above you. It doesn't seem to do anything yet, but it has a purpose. Click on the red button on the right to reveal a door. Go through it.

  10. In this room you see the arms being put on the robots. The button on the top right doesn't do anything, but clicking on the blue button stops the assembly line. Before you hit the button, however, use your laser sword on the glass to make a hole. Now you need to grab one of the arms as it comes down before it is put on the robot. You can use the blue button to stop it to make it easier, but its just as quick and easy to grab the arm as it is coming down. Either way once you have your arm you can leave this room and never ever return. Head back to the color coded door and this time head straight through.

  11. In the next room are two doors, one above and one below. Just keep going straight through the one below into the next room. In this room use your shovel on the pile of gold on your left in this room to reveal a space suit. That's it. Go straight through this room for now.

  12. In this room is a giant robot. Sweet. Use your keycard on the weird box with the three red lights on top of it. Now head back two screens to where you saw the two doors.

  13. use you ladder here to access the top room (just so you know, to go straight through the bottom door use the arrow on the top of the screen, to go through the top one click that door).

  14. You have three options here, but before you do anything you should take notice of the little brown box that you've been seeing in a couple of different places. The one in this room is on your left before the door. Drag your "Octsaurus Plate" onto that box and it should click in. Other boxes around the ship are activated the same way with a certain plate. Go right for now.

  15. On the top right wall is a panel that you can open to get an "Octape Plate." Use your robot arm you got from the assembly line on the white button looking thing to the left of the door, and then use your key on the door. Go on through.

  16. You'll notice a green wheel on the left side of the right red thingy (near the walkway towards the big blue tank). Click this to fill the right area with water. Grab the red crystal that floats to the top. Now use your laser sword on the big blue tank in front of you to cut it open and send water down the drain (In case your wondering this sends water down into the assembly line where it falls through the cut pipe and into another grating into the garbage heap. We'll head there soon, but not yet).

  17. Leave this room and leave the next room to get back to your three way intersection. Take the left path. In the next room try and find a panel on the top right that you can click on to make it fall away to reveal a cord. The panel is hard to find and looks like a normal part of the wall, but its just above the door and a little futher down the hall. Once you have the cord take the button circle thingy you got a long time ago and use it on the hole on the left wall. Once in the hole press the button to open up the door. Go through the door.

  18. Use your cord on the right side of the big circle electrical thing to connect it. Then press the cylinders on the right side of the screen by the red orb to reveal your fourth and final plate: "Octlien Plate." Your "Octpus Plate" fits in the square holder by those cylinders as well. Leave this room and go back to your three way intersection. This time go straight.

  19. There's nothing to do in this room so go straight again and watch the cutscene. Big gun pointed at Earth...cool. There's nothing else to do here, although it seems like the pink card on the back wall can be clicked...it can't so don't bother.

  20. Head back three screens so you're at your ladder again. Place your "Octape Plate" on the left side of the ladder and then go through the bottom door.

  21. In the room with the pile of gold is the last brown box you need to worry about to the left of the door. Place your "Octlian Plate" there. Go through the door.

  22. the blue orb should be glowing blue now, which means the robot is powered up. Activate him by pressing each of the three red buttons above the keycard box sequentially and he'll blast off through the roof. He'll drop a pink tablet afterwards.

  23. Now you can go ahead and beat the game which will only get you 80% (or 70%?) completion. If you don't care about your completion rate then skip to step 26, otherwise read on.

  24. Head back to the color coded door and take a right and go straight through the next door. Now you can pick up the cat and he'll crawl into your spacesuit...creepy. Go back all the way to your garbage heap.

  25. The garbage heap should be filled with water by now. Floating on the top should be "Emerald Green Snack." Pick that up and then also click a couple of times on the left most hole at the top to reveal a golden flake. Pick that up as well.

  26. In the garbage heap you can see a hole on the top right you can go into. Go ahead in to see a statue before you. On the left and right walls are two panels that you can open. Both are somewhat in the middle and not too difficult to find. The golden flake goes in the left one and the emerald snack goes in the right. Watch the cutscene which kind of ties together this game with the previous (in my opinion). Almost done!

  27. Head back to the color coded door and this time head to the left and go straight twice to be at a control room looking at the satellite you summoned. Place your red crystal on the pink circle to the left of the button and then press the button to see the gun get destroyed (I'm unsure if this is necessary to beat the game, but its quick so why not do it?).

  28. Head back to the color coded door, go straight through it, and then go into the top door above your ladder and go straight twice more. You should now be in the room that you saw after your first cutscene; however, this time the fist of the robot is pierced through the floor. On the window to the right of the robot are some symbols which correspond to the symbols on the tablet. You can choose a symbol at a time and then exit the tablet to check the next one and your choices will be saved, and I don't want to have to describe which symbols are right. Plug in the symbols and watch another cutscene.

  29. Now a type of pod has come down by the color coded door. Head back and enter the door to finish the game and watch your final cutscene!

YAYYY ALL DONE. Not too bad and fairly linear. I liked this one a lot, and if you follow this walkthrough you should get 100% completion no problem.

I have three empty slots and two of the items I do have I never used.

Does anyone know what the uses of the gold flake and robot arm are? Also, what items am I missing (I know one of them is the ruby crystal posted above)? I have a slot to the right of the sword; one left of the gold flake; and one right of the robot arm.

Click the ladder to go up.

Go through the right door: put the robot arm in the thing on the left.

@ ixidorsbane

you're missing a key, an emerald thingy and the red crystal must be to the right of the robot arm which i'm missing.
for the key... did you find ALL the cupboards?

try one of the rooms with the cupboard that slides out and has one on the wall.

for the emerald and red crystal... they involve water. what do you have that can cut things?

This is continued from my last post

In the room with the big sphere machine (where you connected the chord and found the octlien plate). Put the octopus plate in the square opening on the right. go back and right to the hallway.

Go forward twice and watch the animation (oh no, there's a laser pointed at the earth!)

Go back three times to the walkway. One of the plates goes in the square opening on the wall next to the door. go forward.

Another of the plates goes in the square opening on the wall on the left. go back twice(to the room with the door that has the codes on either side of it) and then go left.

enter the code for the door and go forward.

Plug the chord into the machine on the left.

go forward. examine the coat (in your inventory) to find a controller. Click the buttons on the controller to guide the satellite.

Put the red crystal on the red circle.

Push the red button to blow up the laser!

Go all the way back to the very first room (back, back, right, back, back, click the pole on the left) and get the green snack floating in the water.)

Thats as far as I've managed to get. Any one know what to do next?

Alright here's the Complete Walkthrough with 100% completion:

  1. You get dropped off in some kind of garbage heap. Grab the shovel, ladder, and behind the rock on the bottom right pile is a wheel type thingy. The white box and the paper type thing can be moved but there's no purpose (as far as I can tell) Grab onto the crane once you're done here.

  2. The crane pulls you up to the next level. On the right try and find a panel on the wall you can click, it will reveal a small pink "Octsaurus Plate." Pick it up as well as place the wheel thing you grabbed from below on the hole to the right of the crane you came up by. Rotate it once to open up the door and go through.

  3. On the left wall of this room you can click a panel to reveal a pink "Octpus Plate." Grab it and leave, that's it for this room.

  4. Notice the colored panels on each side of the door in front of you (it changes for each game so I can't help you there.) Go to the left first.

  5. You can enter the color code from the previous screen on the panel on the top left which will open the door. Before you go through though, click the panel on the right wall to get a weird pink thing. Drag and drop this onto the "Check" box in your inventory and click on the item once to reveal that it is a "Laser Sword." Cool. You can open a panel on the bottom left and open the panel with the sun symbol, but there's nothing there. Move through the door.

  6. In the next screen all you need to do is click on the plug by that huge thing. There's a panel to the top right you can click on but its useless, and you could move on but you can't do anything in there...yet. Head back to the door with the color codes and this time take a right.

  7. Now you're in the hallway to the right of the color coded door. You can plug in your other code at the top right panel, but this time click on the bottom right panel to reveal a key, and the panel with the sun symbol has a weird circle-thingy which you can grab. head through the door.

  8. Grab the lab coat and drag it to the "Check" box. Now click on the lab coat's left pocket to get a satellite controller. Press the green button to turn it on and the yellow button to call up the satellite. Click on the middle pod on the left side of this room to reveal a pink keycard. The cat is useless right now (you can try to attack it with your sword, but it has some alien kitty-cat shielding device.) Go through the door ahead.

  9. Robots are coming off of an assembly line here...cool. Take your laser sword and start hacking this place to bits...actually, just cut the pipes above you. It doesn't seem to do anything yet, but it has a purpose. Click on the red button on the right to reveal a door. Go through it.

  10. In this room you see the arms being put on the robots. The button on the top right doesn't do anything, but clicking on the blue button stops the assembly line. Before you hit the button, however, use your laser sword on the glass to make a hole. Now you need to grab one of the arms as it comes down before it is put on the robot. You can use the blue button to stop it to make it easier, but its just as quick and easy to grab the arm as it is coming down. Either way once you have your arm you can leave this room and never ever return. Head back to the color coded door and this time head straight through.

  11. In the next room are two doors, one above and one below. Just keep going straight through the one below into the next room. In this room use your shovel on the pile of gold on your left in this room to reveal a space suit. That's it. Go straight through this room for now.

  12. In this room is a giant robot. Sweet. Use your keycard on the weird box with the three red lights on top of it. Now head back two screens to where you saw the two doors.

  13. use you ladder here to access the top room (just so you know, to go straight through the bottom door use the arrow on the top of the screen, to go through the top one click that door).

  14. You have three options here, but before you do anything you should take notice of the little brown box that you've been seeing in a couple of different places. The one in this room is on your left before the door. Drag your "Octsaurus Plate" onto that box and it should click in. Other boxes around the ship are activated the same way with a certain plate. Go right for now.

  15. On the top right wall is a panel that you can open to get an "Octape Plate." Use your robot arm you got from the assembly line on the white button looking thing to the left of the door, and then use your key on the door. Go on through.

  16. You'll notice a green wheel on the left side of the right red thingy (near the walkway towards the big blue tank). Click this to fill the right area with water. Grab the red crystal that floats to the top. Now use your laser sword on the big blue tank in front of you to cut it open and send water down the drain (In case your wondering this sends water down into the assembly line where it falls through the cut pipe and into another grating into the garbage heap. We'll head there soon, but not yet).

  17. Leave this room and leave the next room to get back to your three way intersection. Take the left path. In the next room try and find a panel on the top right that you can click on to make it fall away to reveal a cord. The panel is hard to find and looks like a normal part of the wall, but its just above the door and a little futher down the hall. Once you have the cord take the button circle thingy you got a long time ago and use it on the hole on the left wall. Once in the hole press the button to open up the door. Go through the door.

  18. Use your cord on the right side of the big circle electrical thing to connect it. Then press the cylinders on the right side of the screen by the red orb to reveal your fourth and final plate: "Octlien Plate." Your "Octpus Plate" fits in the square holder by those cylinders as well. Leave this room and go back to your three way intersection. This time go straight.

  19. There's nothing to do in this room so go straight again and watch the cutscene. Big gun pointed at Earth...cool. There's nothing else to do here, although it seems like the pink card on the back wall can be clicked...it can't so don't bother.

  20. Head back three screens so you're at your ladder again. Place your "Octape Plate" on the left side of the ladder and then go through the bottom door.

  21. In the room with the pile of gold is the last brown box you need to worry about to the left of the door. Place your "Octlian Plate" there. Go through the door.

  22. the blue orb should be glowing blue now, which means the robot is powered up. Activate him by pressing each of the three red buttons above the keycard box sequentially and he'll blast off through the roof. He'll drop a pink tablet afterwards.

  23. Now you can go ahead and beat the game which will only get you 80% (or 70%?) completion. If you don't care about your completion rate then skip to step 26, otherwise read on.

  24. Head back to the color coded door and take a right and go straight through the next door. Now you can pick up the cat and he'll crawl into your spacesuit...creepy. Go back all the way to your garbage heap.

  25. The garbage heap should be filled with water by now. Floating on the top should be "Emerald Green Snack." Pick that up and then also click a couple of times on the left most hole at the top to reveal a golden flake. Pick that up as well.

  26. In the garbage heap you can see a hole on the top right you can go into. Go ahead in to see a statue before you. On the left and right walls are two panels that you can open. Both are somewhat in the middle and not too difficult to find. The golden flake goes in the left one and the emerald snack goes in the right. Watch the cutscene which kind of ties together this game with the previous (in my opinion). Almost done!

  27. Head back to the color coded door and this time head to the left and go straight twice to be at a control room looking at the satellite you summoned. Place your red crystal on the pink circle to the left of the button and then press the button to see the gun get destroyed (I'm unsure if this is necessary to beat the game, but its quick so why not do it?).

  28. Head back to the color coded door, go straight through it, and then go into the top door above your ladder and go straight twice more. You should now be in the room that you saw after your first cutscene; however, this time the fist of the robot is pierced through the floor. On the window to the right of the robot are some symbols which correspond to the symbols on the tablet. You can choose a symbol at a time and then exit the tablet to check the next one and your choices will be saved, and I don't want to have to describe which symbols are right. Plug in the symbols and watch another cutscene.

  29. Now a type of pod has come down by the color coded door. Head back and enter the door to finish the game and watch your final cutscene!

YAYYY ALL DONE. Not too bad and fairly linear. I liked this one a lot, and if you follow this walkthrough you should get 100% completion no problem.

Having a little trouble with the walkthrough.

Point 15 says

"...and then use your key on the door. Go on through."

What key exactly is this? In my inventory I have no key. As for the keycard, it's stuck in the slot with the big robot. Also no other mention of a key other than keycard is mentioned previously in the walkthrough.

My first time posting, although I've been browsing this site for several months. =)

Maybe I'm missing something, but I can't even get the game to start. All that comes up is a flash object with a link to the game page in it.

Hi Corsicar, yeah, there is definitely something going on there. Something has changed with the developer's site since we posted this review.

My guess is that the game has been so very popular that they have had to implement some restrictions. Unfortunately, it appears these restrictions are preventing anyone from playing at the moment.

My best advice is to check out the game later, hopefully they will have it sorted then.

Cheers for your first comment! :D

Yeah, I noticed the Aztec games are pretty good (I played escape from island), but the shrine doesn't work on my computer! I just see a blank game screen with some links and stuff around it... but this works (it's still loading however)! ??? anyone have an idea why?

I've no clue what's happening on your computer, dotcomlarry.

When I click the link I get the game page with a URL in the game window instead of the game. Right-clicking and choosing play makes the game play.

Perhaps it's a caching issue?

Update: no, it's not a caching issue, since I emptied my cache and retried and the game loaded as before with the URL in the game window. Right-clicking and selecting Play gets the game underway. I'm using Camino on a Mac.

Tried it in Safari (2.0.4) with the same results.

They must be doing some restriction based on IP, that's the only thing I can think of why it would work on some computers and not others.

Something changed today since the review was up. My guess is they are experiencing too much traffic and have had to limit who can play. *shrugs*

Most point and click games, if I need a ton of spoilers I just give up, because it's not fun to me to play the game while frustrated and/or while following someone's walkthrough. These games though... I find them so fun, so engaging, that I will follow along with the walkthrough and play it even when I don't know what to do on my own.

I'm having problems with Step 20 of the walkthrough. It says to go through the bottom door where the ladder is - but everytime I try, it takes me up the ladder through the top door. How do I get around this?

Nevermind my previous post.. I clicked a few more times and this time it let me. But I'm sure I didn't click anywhere I hadn't already tried! Go figure!

Arletta, I know you said forget your last post but I feel like a lot of people may have issues with this. In step 13 I explain that once you have the ladder up you have to click carefully in order to go through the door you want. clicking anywhere on the screen will send you through the top door; however, clicking on the arrow on the top of the screen (the same one used to navigate throughout the rest of the game) will send you through the bottom door.

Just a heads up to everyone.

I was able to get through without this site's or other help for the first time ^^

Difficulty with 8-digit, here is the hint

Left upper room:
- Click the right side of typewriter - zoom in - use the screwdriver to open and place the cable
- There will be a ‘send' after the report came up; click it
- Left lower corner - beside the flashing-light - click the button; and then click the paper to collect the 8-digit number - this number vary >

Difficulty with opening the exit door, here is the hint

in the movie / film room:
- Insert the movie reel to the machine at the right - watch all three if you really want but PAY ATTENTION on the ‘MOVIE REEL 3'
- The 4 wheels - this will show in the movie reel 3 (3;6;1;7 clicks)

Still can't figure out then read the 100% Complete DETAILED Walkthrough

Light up match - when run out, light another ^^
Click forward twice and up the stair (click); click forward once - brick wall (there are three movable bricks)
Click left (facing a machine); click the machine - match disappeared and light come up; click the right-upper corner to collect ‘resistor I'
Click ‘go back' twice then left:
Right then left click to collect ‘resistor 3'
Left, right then right click and click the machine (in front of you - generate a gate to go through latter)
Click ‘go back' till down the stairs (6 click if go right first / 5 click if go left first)
Click right, click forward twice:
Left, forward twice to collect ‘fuse' - click the grating twice (just for fun)
Forward twice to collect ‘movie reel 2' - click right now is useless (that the way out at the end ^^)
Right click and read the note at the left corner - collect the previous items before going through
Continue => click the right side passage; read the note on the ground then click forward twice (read the notes)
Right lower room to collect ‘cable' and read the notes on the bed
Right upper room to collect ‘piece of wire'
Left lower room:
Right lower corner - click twice to collect ‘screwdriver'
Right upper corner - use the screwdriver to open the case, place the resistor I, piece of
wire and resistor 3 at the lower right of the box and fuse at the upper left then pull the handle
Left upper room:
Click the right side of typewriter - zoom in - use the screwdriver to open and place the cable
There will be a ‘send' after the report came up; click it
Left lower corner - beside the flashing-light - click the button; and then click the paper to collect the 8-digit number - this number vary > Forward room:
Right click - not the door - there is a pad from upper left to right then middle left to right: 8 0 5 9 6 then 3 4 2 I 7; the lowest acts as an ‘enter key' (enter the correct 8-digit number then the door open)
The screen will return back to the ‘Forward room':
Right click to enter the room and collect ‘movie reel 3'
Left click to enter the room:
Click left middle (where green-light is) too collect ‘movie reel 1'
Insert the movie reel to the machine at the right - watch all three if you really want but PAY ATTENTION on the ‘MOVIE REEL 3'
*** Before leaving make sure to take all 3 movie reel ^^ ***
The 4 wheels - this will show in the movie reel 3 (3;6;1;7 clicks)
To the Exit gate (click 5 ‘go back' then forward twice and right)
Forward then right and click the button in front
Click the window; give all you items and collect the ‘business card'
Click the business card to read it - the end of part two - to be continued

I had the same problem to you. I think it is a bug. When you are summoning the satellite, you should wait for a few seconds. If you don't, the controller will be disappear as well as the satellite don't show up.

Okay, is this a bug? Does this game have bugs? I am on the door above the ladder, and:

I can't put the plate in the brown box. I drag it there, and it just won't go. I don't see a plate in the panel in the right room. I keep dragging the key to the door and NOTHING HAPPENS.

I'm really frustrated. No one else here seemed to have that problem, and I played the first 2 episodes without trouble.

Wait a minute...

The name of the developer, the indigenous people being forced to run or die as invaders destroy their villages in search of gold...

Is it me or is this game a thinly veiled metaphor for what Hernán Cortés did to the Aztecs?
