4 Walls

DoraI'm going to go ahead and assume it's been a while since you were last abducted, had a bloody number spray-painted on your chest, and woke up in a room full of corpses, cryptic clues, and puzzles. If so, here's a game for you to say, "Aaaaah, that takes me back", with GamezHero's 4 Walls escape game about just such a nostalgic pastime. Click (or tap, if you're playing for free on iOS or Android) to interact with or pick up things, and click the big red arrows to navigate around the room. Click on an item in your inventory of the bottom of the screen to highlight it for use the next time you click, or click on another inventory object to try to combine them. (There is a lot of clicking. The madman who kidnapped you, knocked you out, and set you up is very considerate to our dolphin audience. ) Both your keen detective senses and the bodies lying everywhere will clue you into the fact that this is no five-star hotel, so you'll probably want to find a way out as soon as possible.

4 Walls is a short, straight-forward, mostly clever escape game with logical puzzles that rely more on basic observation and math than your ability to MacGuyver things. The atmosphere is fantastic, with eerie sound effects, a discordant musical track, and simple, effective visuals. Don't worry, there are no jump scares or even particularly explicit bits of gore. Unfortunately, if you're playing it in your browser instead of a touch-screen device, you'll probably wish you had a changing cursor to spot interactive zones so you don't have to resort to clicking around. When the end rolls around you'll probably wish the game had more of a story since the scenario really seems to be begging for it, but if what you're craving is a creepy and smartly constructed little escape game to prime your brain for the next time you find yourself locked up with nowhere to go, fire up 4 Walls. And maybe... get that shirt dry-cleaned.

Very fun game - I had a little trouble understanding a couple of the graphics, such as:

what looks like a sock hanging out from one of the drawers is actually a hole

Am I the only one unable to get this game to load? I've tried in IE, Firefox & Chrome and each time I have a flash crash. Forsooth!

@Kizi2- Not a bad website if you've only just learned webdesign but I think I'll be sticking with JIG. Much more leg room and the seats recline.
