It's a simple concept—a single setting sprinkled with a smattering of puzzles—yet it's one of the things that Robamimi does with singular perfection. So when Robamimi presents One Scene 4, another installment in this deceptively modest escape-the-room series, you know before you start that it's going to be splendid.
As is standard in every Robamimi escape, gameplay is smooth and precise: click on interesting spots, exploring all angles of this solo wall for clues, and breaking codes until your find your exit. A hint system nudges you when you're stuck, but if you're searching for a strenuous cerebral challenge, you won't find it here. Although, in one instance, a clever touch of misdirection might make you reconsider your conclusions and the multiple creative puzzles have enough thinking involved to stay interesting, it is perhaps too easy peasy overall.
Combined with a scenic design, classic jazz tunes and Robamimi's flair for quality, it all rounds out to be a very pleasant playing experience. When all you want is a gentle mental pick-me-up during a five-minute respite, One Scene 4 is an irresistible snapshot of relaxation and fun. It may be simple but it's often the simple things that bring the most enjoyment.
