It's nearly Halloween, so it's time for a creepy room escape! This week's Weekday Escape is a spooky little treat by Selfdefiant called Spooky Night Escape. Just deal with it and hand over the candy before someone gets hurt.
More of a point-and-click adventure disguised as an escape, Spooky Night Escape evokes the look and feel of the season with its nighttime setting, pale moon, and eerie trees. You have run out of gas somewhere on a dark, deserted road and must search the area, find some clues, solve some puzzles, and get the heck away before the inhabitants of the ominous nearby shack return. Faint navigation bars at the sides, top, and bottom of the scene lead the way while a changing cursor points out hot-spots to find useful items or puzzles. The puzzles themselves are not very tricky (and some are color based), making Spooky Night Escape a quick five or ten minute escaping pleasure.
Don't go into Spooky Night Escape expecting ghosts, ghouls, or jump-scares, because there's none of those to be found. The game merely evokes the feel of the season with its look and unearthly music clip. Think of it as a quick prelude to Halloween, something to set the mood for creepier fare yet to come, and a perfect mid-week break.
