Weekday Escape

JessIt can't be easy to always be on the road. The constant back and forth between locations, the many nights away from home, the endless string of bland hotel rooms; after a while, even the smallest bit of extra hospitality might be enough to make your day. It's nice when hotels go the extra mile, right? A fruit basket, super-fluffy towels, maybe a glass of complimentary champagne…lovely. In all seriousness, though, I think that the good folks over at G-Sensor, the new escape game from Japanese developer HILG, have gone just a wee bit overboard in their eagerness to please their patrons.

G-SensorAs the game begins, you, an unnamed business-person, have just checked into your room at Uncle Boo's Hotel. You see a questionnaire on the desk; it thanks you for your stay and asks if you have any demands. Cheekily, you write that you wish to be placed into a "safe room" (an odd request, to be sure) and, exhausted, promptly fall into bed. Just as you drift off to sleep, a strange voice echoes in your head: "Certainly, Sir." The next morning, you wake in a different place altogether! It certainly is "safe"; locked up tight, you'll need to solve puzzles and figure out the mechanisms of the room in order to escape. It was nice of the hotel to honor your request so thoroughly…but really, couldn't they have left you the key?

G-Sensor has many of the qualities of a great escape game. It's clear that, especially in regards to the game's puzzles, HILG had some really creative ideas; the last major puzzle in particular I found to be innovative and exciting. That being said, it seems that at times the game does not possess the necessary clues to make the logical leap from problem to solution (this is despite an in-game hint system, which I found to be nearly useless). There are many intelligent and interesting puzzle elements embedded into G-Sensor, but this lack of logical fluidity makes it harder to fully appreciate them. Happily, however, while the game can sometimes be unnecessarily frustrating, it never becomes unplayable and always remains entertaining.

The game's graphics are pretty good, if a bit bland in color, and I'm not sure that they explain G-Sensor's surprisingly long load time. The interface is simple, classic point-and-click, and the inventory system is easy to use. The game does have a bit of pixel-hunting, but nothing terribly excessive; make sure to click all the obvious angles and you should be fine. There's a save feature, which is nice, and the background music can be toggled on and off. As I mentioned earlier, the game does have a hint system; it seems sporadic at best, however, and the Japanese-to-English translation (specifically in the hint system, the rest of the game is okay) isn't great. On a related note, although some of G-Sensor's loading text is in English, make sure to press the language selection button before beginning the game. The button will say "Japanese" when you first see the loading screen; pressing it will change it to "English."

Despite not having quite the professional polish of some other high-quality room escape games, G-Sensor is nonetheless solid, well-plotted and very enjoyable; what deficiencies may exist are mainly made up for by the game's excellent puzzles. So, let's help this hapless traveler:

Walkthrough Guide


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

Just for those who want it...
WALKTHROUGH

(please excuse the fact that this is my first walkthrough so I hope it's ok!)

opening screen - click on the chair, lifting the cushion, to receive a purple battery.

If you click behind the sofa, you will find a bottle containing blue liquid

go right and explore through the cupboards - you should find a remote control, a gold symbol and a wine bottle, containing the elusive battery!

Turn right again, and examine the flower arrangement to find the screwdriver. if you look at the books to the right, you will find a clue for later in the red backed book.

in this same screen, click below the TV to find a little white circle. to the right of this is a switch, which when pressed will turn on the light (little white circle!) revealing some numbers - this will be useful later :)

turn right again, so you are facing the green cupboard. open the doors and take the magnet bottom left. Use this magnet on the bottle containing the battery

this caused me a lot of trouble too, but the best way is the view the bottle with the magnet selected and click the base of the bottle until it attaches - then keep turning the bottle until the battery is sticking out of the top :)

now you have both batteries, you need to put them in the remote! i didn't need the screwdriver for this, but you may do, just view the remote, click the batteries so they are selected them click on the remote. it should flip over and the back should come off to put the batteries in

back to the picture in the green cupboard - the red glasses indicate the code for the TV - remember them in relation to the yellow glass (i'm not sure if this changes or not)

go to the TV, click the remote, and then the tv and a keypad will appear. remembering the order of the red glasses, type in the order and press check. this should open the far left cupboard underneath the TV.

inside the cupboard, you should find a magnifying glass and a mug

you will need to keep going back between the green cupboard and the tv, entering several codes that the green cupboard gives you into the tv, which in turn open the cupboards below - please note: the following spoilers include the appropriate codes!

1: use magnifying glass on the yellow glass to reveal 3971 - this will open up the 2nd cupboard, producing a hammer and wire outlet

2: use the hammer on the yellow glass, to reveal 2935 - this will open the third cupboard, giving you a little black key and a fork

3: click the curtains to open them, and use the key to open the window. zoom back out, click on the table, and it will reveal 9581 - this will open the final cupboard, giving you the green liquid wine bottle - you must note the positioning of the red tea cups as well :)

the red cups give you the final code of 278, which will produce a design on the screen - take note of this ;)

zoom out completely, and turn right. behind the potted plant, you will find the wine bottle containing red liquid

turn to the door and examine the white box next to it. you will need to put in the right colour wine bottle to the corresponding colour (you will need to turn all of the bottles round, so the bases are facing upwards). click to the right of the white box, and it should reveal a plug socket. insert the wire outlet that you have here. this should activate numbers on the bases of the bottles. type in these codes into the boxes in front of them. this should now open the door!

this isn't the end though!!

open the door, put down the toilet seat, and click the blue picture. if you click the left side (i think!) it should reveal a screw, undo that, and click the right side so that the picture is now pointing downwards.

now return to the TV, and the white light under it. place the fork over it, and turn it on. now look at the numbers again

8936

remember the pattern on the tv? combine that with the numbers now shown to reveal the code for the safe in the toilet!

1296

return to the toilet, and look for the arrow pointing up. insert the code into the box to reveal a silver symbol.

turn to face the wardrobe/cupboards, and click on the yellow rectangle next to it. insert the symbols here. if you look at the symbols, you will see that they are also arrows, indicating a direction. facing the cupboards, follow the gold symbol direction first, clicking on each cupboard door in turn, until they are all open. then close them following the silver symbol.

the cupboard has now become a ladder, click the panel on top of the cupboard and insert the beer mug, to form the handle. inside you will find a small grey handle

return to the toilet, click the little grey area to the right of the cistern and flush the loo!!

I hope that this is ok, and that i haven't missed anything out!! :)

But I have no idea what to do with that, and

nothing happens when I push things on the remote.

I also have:

the screwdriver -- no use for it found thus far
a red bottle and a blue bottle --

upended in the thing by the door; showing numbers, but no power to device.

Urg, I'm so close to the end but I think I'm either missing some pixel hunting or I'm just stumped. Here's my situation:

If you're not done with the TV yet you might not want to read this, just in case.

I have a beer mug and a picture from the little sculpture thingy but I can't seem to find the toilet lever. These two things are all I have. Am I missing something or did I forget to do some things? A little hint would be nice.

if you look at the picture the two and the five seem to be arrows with a head and a tail. You need to follow the pattern of 2 to open the doors of the shelf, then the pattern of the 5 to close the doors of the shelf. When opening, start at the tail of the 2 and when closing, start at the head of the 5. If done right the shelf will turn into a ladder

OK, I don't know where you guys are in the world but it's almost 5am where I am. Are you guys as insane about room escape games like I am or is it just insomnia night for me today? (I'm thinking about packing it in for the night anyway.)

By the way, SeeMax, I just noticed that I have 3 spots open as well. I hope it's not some bad pixel hunting, I'm pretty terrible at that.

I hope that everyone who asked has had their questions answered to their satisfaction because I'm too burnt to figure out any solutions right now :P

I will say this,

If you haven't seen the light under the TV, try looking nearby for a switch. If you HAVE then make sure you have a fork (in the game) and a calculator (in real life, unless like me you are a mental mathematician)

Good luck!

I can't find what to do with

the remote. I first tried (and failed) to enter the code on the tv. At that moment, the red led was on on the remote, and the red box was on the screen, but it's no longer the case. And now, each time I try to enter digits, I'm told "cannot input." Is it that I, in fact, succeeded at entering the code the first time, and I'm now done with the tv? I noticed something changed in the room: when zooming on the glasses, I'm shown the one filled with yellow liquid, which has digits on it. Is it tied?

Right. Stupid of me. Thanks, SonicLover.

For some reason, I saw it as being 8x9x3=6, which made no sense to me, or the equal sign meaning that the last digit didn't change, and the x meaning that the other digits did change according to some formula. So much for overthinking it.

Okay, I have some birdseed... a pneumatic jackhammer... a snowball... and a brain in a jar of formaldehyde. Now what?

Oops. Wrong game. But seriously: I completed the game, but I had to resort to the walkthrough for

The final code for the TV of 278. I don't understand how this is determined from the red cups. Any help?

In any case, I really enjoyed the game. A good one.

Never mine. I didn'r realize I wasn't following the arrows correctly.

don't forget to enter the last code 278 on the tv before going back to the toliet, or it won't allow you to push the numbers

Anyone know how to:

do the door open and close puzzle close to the end with the 5 and 2 thing you get? i can't seem to get the door combinations right.

Thanks in advance.

for the cupboard part at the end you should follow the pattern:

(i put them in number order of which should be pressed - if i remember properly!)

76
85
41
32 for the gold

32
41
56
87 for the silver

Will

The codes are for the safe in the toilet - have you discovered the pattern on the TV that is produced when putting in the tea cups?

Bad Dog

The tea cups are in the same positions as the numbers on the TV - so the red tea cups represent 278 on the number panel - hope this helps explain that :)

Something rather odd. I was following peroxide555's walkthrough to the letter and everything was working perfectly until

I tried to enter the second code on the TV, the one written on the side of the yellow glass in the picture in the green cupboard. The TV will not accept any input. I click on the numbers, and the hint system actually says "cannot input."

Obviously, I really can't proceed until this gets sorted out.

whether i call the 1 and 2 the two top ones or 7 and 8 the 2 top ones,i can't get this thing to work out to make a ladder. can someone tell me exactly how to do this? :(

Okay, I figured it out, and it's slightly stupid.

I had to zoom in on the yellow glass with the magnifying glass first, then the TV allowed me to input the numbers. I could make out the numbers just fine without zooming in, though. *grumblegrumble*

Paul

there are 8 cupboards doors that you need to open and close. the gold is one pattern to follow to open the cupboard doors, and the silver is to close them again. when the are done correctly, the doors will change and if i remember rightly, you zoom out of them to see a rectangle above the cupboards.
the patterns that i have put below are to the route around the cupboards, starting at one working the way around the numbers. if you look at the cupboard doors, they are in the same shape as the numbers, and if you trace the numbers around, you should see the number 2 of the gold symbol, and the 5 of the silver.
for the gold to open the cupboards doors:
7 6
8 5
4 1
3 2

and for the silver to close them:
3 2
4 1
5 6
8 7

i hope this explains it a little better -sorry that i didn't help much before :)

Is 1 at the top or at the bottom? I tried that formula already and it doesn't seem to work for me, but I'll try once more.

peroxide555 Author Profile Page April 23, 2009 5:48 PM

me too: I'm a little confused as to which 2 you are following for the first tv code.

when you look at the green cupboard for the first time, you should see a table with one yellow glass on it in the bottom left corner, and then an arrangement of 8 more glasses, some with red liquid in, others empty. if it helps, draw a three by three square and write with colour is where in the grid in relation to where they are on the table. then when you turn on the tv using the remote, a blue screen should appear with a three by three number grid on it. looking at where the red glasses are, hit that number square on the tv. if you type them in exactly the same, when you zoom out, you should be able to open the far left cupboard under the tv (or just check to see if the green cupboard picture has changed).

I hope this helps :)

what i mean is,does the cupboards go like this in numerical order:

1 2
3 4
5 6
7 8

or is it like this:

7 8
5 6
3 4
1 2

or does it mean call the gold direction 1 2 at the top,then call the silver direction 7 8 at the top?

i'm very confused

Here is what I tried

The 2 i'm following is the is the big one found in the cupboard that goes into the yellow stand next to the cupboard. Here's why, when I look at the glasses in the picture, I see the following pattern:

r r o 7 8
r o o or 4
y o r 1 3

Following the big 2 I get 31487 or 314874, neither of which works. Is there a specific order they are entered onto the screen? No matter what I try the cabinet doors do not open.

7 6
8 5
4 1
3 2

and for the silver to close them:
3 2
4 1
5 6
8 7

3 4
5 6
7 8

of idf they are numbered 7 8
5 6
3 4
1 2

or what

looked it up on youtube and found the problem. i'm autistic so you have to explain things just right to me or else i get confused. I realize what you meant by those directions now. I thought you meant starting from the top hit these numbers and i totally got confused. Anyway,hope you enjoy the Video Walkthrough.

Okay, I followed the link, the page loaded and the Flash window went blue with the load bar in the middle. Then it went black and I got this:

uchinoko ver.070623 by http://nuke.info/

ready.
checking file address...
result: allowable address.
wait for loading completely...
timeout.
checking page address...
result: illegal address.
file was locked.

Any ideas?

Cornelius - the code output you're seeing appears to be some URL locking code in place to make sure the game is played from the author's website.

If you're not playing the game in a browser, or you have a firewall or other software that blocks certain HTTP data, then those scripts might conclude that the game is being played at an unauthorized site.

It runs through fine for me without error. After the black screen and text, the actual loading of the game takes place.

Aaargh. Hate this one.

I'll spoiler the biggest reason, just in case.

The battery is in the bottle. I have the magnet. Hey, I should probably use the magnet to get it out, right?

Click-click-click. Click-click-click-click. No, obviously not, it doesn't work anyway I select it. Let me search around more.

(half an hour later)

OK, I'm out. I give up, capitulate, throw in the towel. Let me see the walkthrough.

WHAT? I have to use the magnet to get the battery out? Didn't I.. wasn't I.. ugh. OK.

Click-click-click. CLICK-CLICK-CLICK-CLICK-CLICK! Get out from the bottle, damn you! Get out! AAAARGH!

Close window. Aaah.. that's better.

And I'm never coming back to it again. 1 mushroom for you, you frustrating, non-working, time-wasting game.

Yeah, this was only so-so. Definitely has some not-so-intuitive puzzles. But the big question is,

what if you had to pee while you were trying to escape? Maybe that's what the bottles were really for.

Great game, but it was a HUGE file. Besides taking forever to load, it lags a bit and causes INSANE virtual memory leaks. We're talking 300k for one little flash game!!

Aside from that, there were just too many logic leaps. A complete "Guide, Dang It" game which was still difficult, even with the walk through! Enjoyable, but just barely so.

Just wanted to let whomever know - the website this game is hosted on seems to be no longer available. I tried searching and checking other escape game websites, and they all linked back to the same site, and each time I got a 404 error message. Might consider taking this one down.

I found an official site for the game, and updated the links in the review. The author must have changed sites.
