Endless Escape is a puzzle-oriented mobile game from Mobest Media. It follows the simple but supremely addictive layout made popular by games like 100 Lights and DOOORS, utilizing the room escape formula at its core but confining things to a single space of puzzles presented one after another. Instead of roaming around looking under rugs for four digit keypad combinations, your mission is as simple as finding a key, unlocking a door, then proceeding to the next stage. The methods you'll employ to find that key, however, are delightfully unusual!
To locate each level's key you'll need to think outside of your mobile device. Tapping on things usually does the trick, but more often than not, you'll see a few clues that hint at abnormal actions you'll need to take. Things like setting your phone down, shaking it, or even messing about with the game's menu screens are often necessary to obtain the key. You can even combine some inventory items by tapping them in succession, so don't limit your thinking when staring at that locked door.
We've grown to love this trend of distilling escape games down to a series of one room puzzles, and Endless Escape does a great job utilizing the mobile devices' extra abilities. At the time of writing there are 24 levels available to play, with another 24 marked as "coming soon". A bit short for an initial outing, and the levels aren't too challenging, but with any luck, future updates will remedy those issues. The more puzzles the better, and we can't wait to get another set of rooms to escape from!
