Long before pretentious hipsters and others got hold of them, tapas were basically bar snacks, small, salty bites meant to simultaneously soak up a little alcohol while making you thirsty for more. Small bites is what we're talking about here, little nibbles meant to whet the appetite. When it comes to room escapes, the tapas master (metaphorically speaking here) is Hottategoya, and they are here to tease our palates with a refeshing little bite called Escape from the Room with a Strong Door.
Yes, Escape from the Room with a Strong Door is the perfect equivalent of a bowl of beer nuts, an addicting little nibble that makes us hungry for more. The game is pretty stripped down, involving a stark room with the aforementioned strong door, one piece of furniture, a wastebasket, and two pictures on the wall. Using the usual bars to navigate the room you must solve the three puzzles contained within using only your wits and the two (yes, just two!) inventory items you can find. Even for Hottategoya (Escape from the Room with 3 Medals, Chikarou 5) this is pretty bare stuff, yet pretty entertaining.
The downsides, aside from the too short length are that the puzzles are all in color which can make life difficult for certain segments of the population if they find themselves locked into this quiet little room. Despite the shortness, Escape from the Room with a Strong Door is a well-designed and delicious appetite stimulator, leaving the gamer hungry for more.
