JeremyRoute 401 MotelThe fatal flaw of many adventure games is that they are too complicated, or seem to think you have days and countless Friday nights to spare in the completion of unintuitive or unfair puzzles. Well, at least Ori Brusilvsky understands your pain and created Route 401 Motel, a fun little point-and-clicker that most of us mere mortals can finish and enjoy in the span of a couple of coffee breaks.

You play a lucky young man who has just inherited a motel with a lovely scenic view of Route 401. The only hitch is that an entire family of yahoos with questionable hygiene are squatting in your lovely new property and you'll need to find a clever way to give them the boot if you want to start running the place. Just click around to explore, using the map on the bottom left to switch locations, and racking up items in your inventory on the bottom right.

Route 401 Motel keeps it simple with just four locations to wade through and streamlines the whole experience as much as possible, so that the distance between "I know what I can do with those batteries!" and actually doing something with them is short. That doesn't mean there aren't any challenges, of course, but some of your more seasoned adventure gamer friends, the ones who you suspect have no life and family obligations to speak of, might scoff at. But for the rest of us who have started so many adventure games only to quit in defeat days later, Route 401 Motel will be a fun exercise in maybe, actually, you know, winning. Just be careful not to slosh coffee all over your coworkers when you do your "I actually won an adventure game!" victory lap around the office.

Route 401 Motel Walkthrough

  1. You'll start at the motel. Nothing to do here yet, so bring up the map (icon in lower left corner) and go to the police station.

  2. Talk to the police officer on duty and he'll ask for a picture of the invaders.

  3. Check out the bulletin board on the right. Take one of the exterminator's business cards (green).

  4. Unplug the officer's computer (lower right). Take the key he drops when he plugs it back in.

  5. Go back to the map and go to the pier.

  6. There are three booths on the pier. We'll start with the one furthest from the foreground ("DUCK HUNT"). Click it and play the minigame; shoot 15 ducks to win a flashlight with no batteries.

  7. Look at the middle booth ("SWEET SURPRISES"). Nothing to do here... yet.

  8. Now for the closest booth ("CARICATURES".) Click it and you'll automatically be taken back to the motel and given a picture of the weirdo in the front window.

  9. Go back to the police station. Show the officer the picture to learn a bit more about the weirdos.

  10. Go to the clinic. Take the stick by the trash can, then open the door with the key.

  11. Inside, take the batteries on the left corner of the desk (they're black and green). Click the left door to move to another room.

  12. Click the folder on the shelf below the window to learn a critical weakness of one of your motel intruders: namely, a peanut allergy.

  13. Click the door on the right to go back to the first room, then the door in the back to leave. Go to the pier again.

  14. Return to Sweet Surprises (middle booth). You'll get a peanut bar.

  15. Now, the pay phone on the far right. Use it and call the number on the exterminator's business card (click the card in your inventory to zoom in).

  16. Go to the motel. Watch the exterminator get in a fight with the weirdo at the desk, which curiously ends in the exterminator vanishing without a trace. Take the bug spray he drops.

  17. "DO NOT USE ON PERSONS FACES"... let's see why not. Use the bug spray on the door to knock out the first Henfricks.

  18. You're inside now. Go to the door on the right to enter a dark room.

  19. Put the batteries in the flashlight (click them in succession).

  20. Take the extension cord on the desk.

  21. Backtrack one room (click the door on the left).

  22. Plug the extension cord into the outlet by the left door.

  23. Enter the left door to go to the pool.

  24. Push the extension cord with the stick to knock out the second Henfricks. Pick up her wig (I hope that's a wig).

  25. Wear the lady's wig (a simple click on it will do).

  26. Use the peanut-bar on the kid. Last Henfricks down!

  27. Click the door to return to the office, then the exit icon on the lower left to leave the motel.

  28. Return to the police station and talk to the officer.

  29. You're done!

This game loads incredibly slowly. It can't be just my connection, since the other games load almost right away.

Seems to be a Firefox problem, then. It loaded right away in Chrome.

Had no issues loading it in FF. That said, what an incredibly easy game.

Has potential. Decent drawings/ scenes and concept. Too straightforward and simplistic tho.

Let's rap about what we learned today, children!

Squatters in your home?
Don't know what to do?
Thinking poison or electro-shock!
Then Homicide's for YOU!

Yay I... Won?

It was a little too easy, which was kind of a relief when you consider a lot of other games. Good humor and nice drawing.
