Weekday Escape

GrinnypThe last couple of weeks have been pretty easy, so this week we're going hard, real hard, concrete hard. Put on your thinking caps, fellow escape fanatics! This weekday escape is a tough little room escape by Tesshi-e, creator of Escape from the Snowman's Room and Escape from Bed Room, Escape from 5th Door. Can you find all three escape scenarios?

escapefrom5thdoor.jpgDefinitely take time to watch the opening animation, as this is classic Tesshi-e. "Look, a mysterious door in a concrete building! Hey, stairs that go down into the ground, let's go! Look, a strange elevator that goes who-knows-where, we have to ride that! Hey, we're in a square room with four identical doors, all of which are locked. Oh, crap." Yes, in the world of this room escape designer you are just that stupid.

Move around using the bars that appear at the sides of the screen, but be warned: it is very easy to become disoriented and forget which way you are facing, as each wall/door combo is completely identical, at least at first. There's no changing cursor, so there will be pixel hunting. Fortunately, in this sparse, industrial space there's not much clutter, and almost everything you need is easily visible. A standard "about item" button is handy to examine things you've picked up, and extremely necessary. Yes, there will be combining and construction ahead, so be warned.

Analysis: With a nice mix of math, logic, color, and construction, Escape from 5th Door is fun, balanced room escaping. The puzzles are logical for the most part and the construction and use of found objects is amusing. Most fun of course is trying to find the various ways out, as there is a "bad", a "neutral", and a "good" (aka happy coin) escape, each with their own ending animations. This is not a ten minutes and easy out puzzle, so be prepared to spend a little time in a claustrophobic underground space.

As usual the surroundings are nicely rendered 3D, but rather than Tesshi-e's usual warm, comfortable space you're looking at a lot of stark, industrial ugly, apropos of the escape itself. The music is...well, you've probably heard it before, so be thankful for the handy mute button. The only thing missing is a save button which would have been nice, especially with the three escape scenarios.

Yes, there is some pixel hunting. Yes, some rather strange construction is necessary to find your way out. Yes, the game is in Japanese, but you don't need to be able to read Japanese to play. Regardless, Escape from 5th Door is escaping done well, casual gameplay that challenges and teases and taunts and eventually leaves you happy to escape. Be prepared for some odd leaps of logic, and laugh at the "bad" escape when you find it. Just get escaping!

Try the panels; One can open

Inside you will find a card and a machine. Take the card and look at it.

It says Total=Queen => N Open

On the back it has a compass

Total = Queen

How many ways can you input numbers?

Just with the doors

So What does the total need to be?

Where does a queen have a value?

A deck of playing cards

You need to figure out which color corresponds to each letter.

Where have you seen those letters?

on the compass

each letter corresponds to a door;
the room you are currently in is North.

What is on each door?

the number you inputed to open the door.

use the sliders on the panel to add up to a number. This is the color corresponding to that number.

Escape from 5th Door Walkthrough

General Information

  • You begin the game facing the North door. Remember that, or you will get easily confused.

  • Yes, there is some construction ahead, so be sure to examine all objects and see what can be combined.

  • Click on items in inventory then the "about item" button to examine them in close up.

  • There will be instructions for the colorblind, as some puzzles are color based.

  • There are three ways out, see if you can find them all.

  • Happy coin will bring happiness to you!

Door Chamber

  • You begin facing the north door. Click on the door for a close up.

  • Notice that the numbers can be changed and run 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.

  • Back up.

  • Click on the orange box next to the door for a close up.

  • Click on the box. It's locked. Back up.

  • Turn left (west).

  • You are now facing the west door. Close up on the door and notice that the numbers run 0, 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

  • Back up then click on the orange box for a close up.

  • Click on the box again. Hey, it's open!

  • Take the note from inside. It says total = queen and N open.

  • Click on the note to turn it over. Now it says card over directions N, E, S, and W.

  • Close down the note.

  • Back up and turn left.

  • You are now facing the south door. Notice that its numbers run 0, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1.

  • The orange box next to it is locked, so nothing to do yet.

  • Turn left.

  • You are now facing the east door.

  • The east door numbers run 0, 7, 2, 4, 6, and 8.

  • The box is also locked.

  • Turn left twice until you are facing the west door again. If you have lost track of where you are, the west door is the only one where you can open the orange box.

  • Let's think about the note in the box.

  • Specifically, total = queen.

    • There's a queen in a deck of cards.

    • Starting from the Ace as 1, the queen would be the 12th card in a suit.

    • So maybe if we make the door numbers add up to 12?

    • If so, it should open the North door.

      • There are several ways to do this, here's just one example:

      • Make the north door 5.

      • Make the west door 1.

      • Make the south door 2.

      • Make the east door 4.

  • Okay, turn to the north door and try to open it.

  • Yay, it worked!

North Room

  • Okay, on the wall are two locked boxes flanking a large black console.

  • Click on the console for a close up.

  • Looks like a guide to colors.

  • Play with the switches for a bit, and see what colors correspond to what numbers.

    • The starting color, red, is zero.

    • 1 is dark blue.

    • 2 is light blue.

    • 3 is yellow.

    • 4 is green.

    • 5 starts the cycle again with red.

    • That means 6 would be dark blue, 7 light blue, 8 yellow, and 9 green.

  • Back up.

  • Underneath the black console, on the shelf, is another, smaller console. Click on it for a close up.

  • Okay, we have the buttons corresponding the N E W S, and they change colors.

    • Let's set each button to the color that corresponds to the numbers we set on the doors earlier.

    • If you followed my example and set the numbers to North 5, West 1, South 2, and east 4 that would mean North = red, West = dark blue, South = Light Blue, and East = green.

    • For the colorblind: Don't touch the North button, it's already red. Hit the West button once, the South button twice, and the East button 4 times.

  • Once you have the color code entered push the green button at the bottom.

  • The box opens! Take the key (clue key) and the four cards in the box.

  • Back up.

  • Use the club key on the locked box to the left of the black console on the wall.

  • Okay, we have some dials here.

  • Notice that the dial for West is to the right, while the others are to the left (except the East dial, which is missing).

  • What's different about the West door?

  • The orange box beside it is open, that's what is different.

  • Move all the dials to the right (except East, which is missing).

  • Back up twice.

Door Chamber

  • You're back in the door chamber, facing the North door.

  • Click on the orange box beside the door for a close up.

  • Click on the box to open it.

  • Cool, a box inside the box! Take the blue box.

  • Once the blue box is in close up click on the lid to open it.

  • Remove the green rat.

  • Pull up the blue box from your inventory and click on the lid to turn it over.

  • Hmmm, it says N E W. I'm sure that's important.

  • Notice in the open orange box that the door lock indicator is showing one green light on the North door, that's the only one that is unlocked.

  • Back up and turn right twice to face the South door.

  • Click on the orange box next to the South door for a close up, then click on the box to open it.

  • Yay, there's the missing dial! Take the dial.

  • While the dial is in close up, notice that there is a nut and washer on the dial. Click on the nut to remove it.

  • Back up and turn right twice to the North door.

  • Enter the North door.

North Room

  • Click on the left box for a close up, then open it.

  • Put the missing dial in the East spot, then turn it to the right.

  • Back up twice.

Door Chamber

  • Remember those four cards we picked up from the color box?

  • There's one for each door in the chamber.

  • Let's go around and put the cards in the door lock indicators.

  • Since we're facing the North door, let's do that first.

  • Click on the orange box next to the North door.

  • Open the box and notice that there is a small slot in the middle right of the door lock apparatus.

  • Place the N card in that slot and back up.

  • The blank space below should light up with the letter N.

  • Back up and turn right to face the East door.

  • Open the orange box by the East door and take the plastic water bottle.

  • Now put the E card in the door lock slot.

  • Turn right, open the South door box, enter the S key in the slot.

  • Turn right, open the West door box, and enter the W key in the slot.

  • Cool, the green indicator for the East door came on, guess that the East door is now unlocked.

  • Back up and turn right twice to face the East door.

  • Open the East door and go in.

East Room

  • Great, more green rats.

  • Click on the rats on the shelf for a close up.

  • There's a handle there, but it doesn't do anything.

  • And of course there's a drawer that we can't open yet.

  • Place the green rat from your inventory into the slot on the right.

  • Hey, if you click on them their heads turn around.

  • Perhaps if we turn the heads the right way, something will happen.

    • Remember the letters on the inside of the top of the blue box?

    • Three letters, N E W.

    • That's probably directions for turning the rat heads.

    • But remember, at this particular moment we are facing East.

    • So North would be to the left, East is in front of us, and West is behind us.

    • Turn the rat heads thus: left rat facing left, middle rat facing the wall, right rat stays where it is, facing forward.

  • Once the rats are facing the correct way, click on the handle in front of them.

  • Yay, a knife! That's always handy.

  • Now open the drawer.

  • Take the round key and the nut/washer from the drawer.

  • Back up twice.

  • Turn left to face the North door and go into the North Room.

North Room

  • Click on the box to the right of the black console.

  • Use the round key on the box.

  • Cool, a switch, probably for the West door (Door-W).

  • Click on the switch to put it in the up position.

  • Back up twice.

  • Turn left to face the West door.

  • Open the door and go in.

West Room

  • Click on the picture on the wall for a close up.

  • Notice that the bottom and the top of the picture are mirror images of each other, even the numbers and symbols.

  • Back up.

  • Click on the chest on the shelf.

  • Okay, the chest requires a three digit code, one letter, one symbol, and one number.

  • How does this relate to the picture above?

    • Just as the top and bottoms of the letters and symbols in the pictures are mirror images of each other, the code is comprised of things that are mirror images.

    • Look at each letter, symbol, and number available. Which ones have a top and bottom that are exact mirror images of each other?

    • That would be X, the star of David, and the 3.

  • Once you've entered the code, push the yellow button to open the chest.

  • Take the wrench.

  • Back up once.

  • Click on the left side of the chest to see behind it.

  • Take the heart key.

  • Back up three times.

  • Turn right to face the North door.

  • Enter the North room.

North Room (yes, again)

  • Well, we just picked up a hexagonal wrench, what in this room would that work on?

  • Click on the black console on the wall for a close up.

  • Yep, hex bolts.

  • Use the wrench on the nuts, and you will be able to remove the upper right and lower left bolts.

  • Back up twice.

  • Turn right to the east door and go into the East room.

East Room

  • Click on the box on the wall for a close up.

  • Use the heart key on the box.

  • There's the switch for the South door.

  • Flip the switch to the up position.

  • Back up twice.

  • Turn right to face the South door.

  • Enter the South door.

South Room

  • Cool, this must be the 5th door.

  • On the left is an alcove filled with water.

  • On the right is an alcove with two pillars. Click on the right alcove.

  • Take the milk carton and back up.

  • Click on the left alcove.

  • There's a button way at the back of the alcove, I'm sure it's important.

  • It's construction time!

  • We need to build something that can float to the back of the alcove.

  • Let's start with the plastic bottle.

  • Pull up the bottle from your inventory.

  • Use the knife on the bottle.

  • Once you cut a large hole in the side, click on the bottom of the bottle to turn it over.

  • Use the knife on the bottom of the bottle to cut two small holes.

  • One at a time, place the bolts in the holes, then place the nuts on the bolts.

  • Pull up the milk carton from your inventory.

  • Use the knife on the milk carton. You should now have a square of cardboard.

  • Click on the square to compress it into a paddle.

  • Pull up the bottom half of the milk carton for a close up.

  • Click near the top to look into the carton.

  • Take the rubber bands.

  • Now pull up the paddle thing from your inventory.

  • Use the rubber bands on the paddle.

  • Yes, we're making a rubber band paddle boat.

  • Now pull up the plastic bottle from your inventory.

  • Place the paddle at the bottom of the boat (where the bolts are). You now have a functioning boat.

  • Place the boat in the water.

  • Click on the boat to push it forward.

  • Yay, it pushed the button!

  • Back up.

  • Click on the right alcove for a close up.

  • Okay, the pillars are gone and now we have two tubes with buttons in them.

  • What do we have in our inventory that would fit, and be heavy enough to push the buttons?

  • And which button do we push?

  • Decision time!

Bad End

  • Drop the wrench into the left tube.

  • Back up twice.

  • The cool elevator has appeared! Go into the elevator.

  • You are now facing a stairway out. Click on the top of the stairway.

  • Okay, you're out, but you're lost in the woods.

Neutral End

  • Drop the wrench into the right tube.

  • Back up once.

  • Click on the 5th door (between the alcoves).

  • The light is green!

I'm quite enjoying this one (and I'm not always a fan of escape games). So far all the puzzles have been quite logical and very fun, but I'm finally stuck.

If you've made it through the east door the spoiler's safe. Here's where I'm at:

I've gotten into the West room, and I think I've done almost everything there is to do in the North and West (I need to the key-box in the West, but that's all I can see). I have
two used keys
two washer/nut pairs
a box
a knife
that first slip of paper
a bottle, that I cut

I can't figure out how to open this chest! I understand from the picture above that it has to do with the fact that if you mirror half of a certain digit or letter, it looks like another. But with only three spaces, and no symbol on the box that has half of one of the symbols on the painting, I can't figure out the rest!

Huh. This may be the first time I've gotten through on of these without any sort of a hint. Some of those puzzles were tricky (the first one was particularly abstract) but I seemed to just happen to think along the right lines; I even found all three endings. Good game, as usual from Tesshi-e - haven't played one of theirs that I didn't like, even if I usually get stuck.

@StephenM3:

The picture tells you what kind of symbol you're looking for instead of telling you the symbols themselves.

You're looking for symbols for which the top and bottom are mirror images.

The X, the Star of David, and the 3.

Ah, thanks guys.

I was stuck on the whole idea that if you mirror the top half a 7, it looks like a backwards C. As usual, my problem is overthinking things to make them way more complicated than necessary.

Agh hopelessly lost right at the beginning. I can always count on a room escape game to make me feel like an idiot. I found the card though! So... I'm not a complete idiot... right?

Hint (Minor correction):

That's not a card.

Hint:

focus on "total = Queen" for now

Question. Looks like I'm just past where StephenM3 was stuck.

I've constructed what appears to be a two-pronged... thing. That wily south door is still closed, and I can't seem to divine any use for my creation.

A nudge in the right direction, perhaps?

Alright well... I'm still stuck haha. As far as I can tell,

I need to change the numbers on the doors until their total adds up to "Queen." Then the north door will open. Problem is, I have no idea what "Queen" could be as a number. Except turning the letters into numbers and adding them together, giving me 60, but I'm having a very hard time forcing the door numbers to add up to 60... unless I'm supposed to multiply to get 60? Hmm...

I'm sure I'm just missing some essential realization that'll be really obvious once I know the answer. Maybe I'm just too tired right now.

And StephenM3, that's what the preview button is for ;)

Double posting here but I DON'T CARE! Because

I was right, you do have to multiply. Right in front of my face the whole time.

Now to continue! Until I inevitably get stuck again in the next few minutes.

Walkthrough

opening the first door

All wall are identical at first, with a door and a panel. Most are locked.

The doors can have a number put on them.

Not all doors can have the same numbers

Try the panels; One can open

Inside you will find a card and a machine. Take the card and look at it.

It says Total=Queen => N Open

On the back it has a compass

Total = Queen

How many ways can you input numbers?

Just with the doors

So What does the total need to be?

Where does a queen have a value?

A deck of playing cards

input numbers on the doors so they all total 12.

One of the doors should be openable now. This door is North.

inside the first door

inside this door is a large panel on the wall, two green boxes, and a device on the counter that says NEWS, with colored squares above it.

both boxes are locked

on the main panel, you have sliders labeled 1, 2,3,3

You can move the sliders, and the color on the panel will change.

the device on the counter has colored squares, that you can change

these colors are the same as the colors that can appear on the panel

You need to figure out which color corresponds to each letter.

Where have you seen those letters?

on the compass

each letter corresponds to a door;
the room you are currently in is North.

What is on each door?

the number you inputed to open the door.

use the sliders on the panel to add up to a number. This is the color corresponding to that number.

find the corresponding color for each door, and input it under its letter

press the green button, the device should open.

Take the 4 cards and the club key.

the club key opens the left box.

inside are 4 knobs, but one is missing

it is labeled shutter locks.

the west shutter is already open, so turn the other two knows to face the same way.

opening the next door

go back the the center room.

the North and South shutters should open now

open them, and collect the items found inside.

You should have a box and a knob

examine the knob

take off the washer and bolt from the back

go back to the north room and put the knob in with the others, and turn it to open.

go to the south shutter and open it

take the bottle

now its time to use the devices in the shutters

you can put the cards into the machines.

this will cause that letter to appear in the window.
you can push the button to remove the cards

These letters should be familiar by now.

put in the cards so each device is labeled according to its direction

this should open the east door. You can tell because the green light on E will light up.

Inside the second door

Inside the East door you will see another green box, two green mouse figures, and a drawer.

look at the figures.

note the knife in the shelf

look at the box in your inventory.

open it

take the green mouse

put the mouse with the others.

Oh.

Well...

Right.

Darn it! Must just be the result of too many riddle games. I'm always expecting a morse code puzzle right around the corner too.

I did indeed get stuck again, but a quick glance at Mystify's walkthrough cleared that up. Then I beat it with the bad ending on accident, then again with the normal ending, and finally figured my way through to the happy ending. Phew.

I have to say, for a change I found the construction game fairly straight forward - once I saw the goal, I pretty well figured out what was needed, and then how to

make the paddle boat

to the point of knowing where to find the pieces I was still missing. I was even lucky enough to stumble on the coin ending first time, although that was a bit of luck. If you play enough Tesshi games, I guess you learn not to necessarily take the obvious out right away ;D

I love Tesshie games. They are always so delightful obscure and bizarre. And this one changed it up a bit with the puzzles - I have to admit, they were starting to seem a bit formulaic for me recently. But this one was quite nice! Just what I needed!

This game was nice. I got out without help (lucky coin and all), but it was tricky enough to still feel satisfying at the end.

sarah:

Here's an easy way to get the NEWS box open:

The first door you enter is North. What number is on that door? For example, let's say five. Go to the NEWS box. Make sure all the rectangles are set to red. Now, click the rectangle above N five times (since the number you set on the door was five). Do the same thing for the other doors, using whatever numbers you put on the East, West, and South doors.

Hope that helped.
