Nothing good ever happens in clock towers. Either you wind up getting poisoned by a mutated super soldier while you're trying to escape a city, or you're dealing with supernatural serial killers. But it's not all thrills and chills, and in Self-Defiant's point-and-click escape game Must Escape: The Clock Tower, all you have to do is find your way back out of one. Just click whenever your icon changes to interact, and use the arrows to look around or move to new locations.
Must Escape: The Clock Tower is best described as short and sweet, though a bit of extra polish in some areas to take care of typos would have helped overall. Most will simply find it a brisk warmup than a really substantial challenge, with fairly obvious clues and most puzzles amounting to fixing things. It's like you're role-playing as a mechanic. At one point, you'll be transporting objects between scenes with your cursor, however, which is fairly neat, and with a satisfying chunk of puzzles that'll make you feel like a time lord if not a brainiac. Must Escape: The Clock Tower has few frills, but will kickstart your brain and prepare you the next time you wander into an abandoned building and somehow manage to get lost on five floors where the only way to go is straight up or down. No, I'm not judging you. Aloud.
