Find the Escape-Men 53 in the Service Area

GrinnypThere's nothing like a really long car ride with the throb of a well-tuned engine... the thrum of tires against asphalt... the hum of the climate controls... the rattling of one of the fan vents... the numbness in your left leg... the whining of your passengers... the crackle of the radio as you JUST TRY TO FIND A DECENT STATION IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE... uh, eventually, in any long-distance ride, a person needs to just pull over and stretch their legs, hit the restroom, and maybe find something to eat. Not a problem in more populated areas, but if you are in the vast stretches between towns sooner or later you might want to brave the nearest rest stop, also known in other parts as the service area, home to squabbling families, long-haul truckers, interstate serial killers, and apparently escape men. No1game is back with the road trip that refuses to die in Find the Escape-Men 53 in the Service Area, yet another road trip themed escape. Are we there yet?!?!

grinnyp_findescapemen53_screenshot.pngThe inevitable sequel to Part 51 (Traffic) and Part 52 (Gas Station) sees the long-suffering traveler attempting to catch a break at a fairly decent looking Service Area, one that is home to restrooms, restaurants, a gift shop, and the inevitable green escape men. Why these little international symbols of an exit want to keep hiding in the scenery is a mystery that is once again explored in point-and-click format. The problem, you see, is that although it's nice to get out of the car and move around a bit, you won't be able to get back on the road until you find ten of the little slackers and make them get back to their jobs. No1game serves up an amusing little mini-escape with a couple of puzzles, some combining of found items, and a lot of annoying the folks around you. Find the Escape-Men 53 in the Service Area reminds us that in the vast excursion that is life it is not the destination but the journey that is important. And, you know, the escaping.

Does not work in Firefox, must use IE. Phooey.

The TP was not obvious, and waiting, like for the truck, came up too many times...

Walkthrough

Toilets (left of building)

  1. Enter the left door (gents' toilets). You can't enter the ladies' toilets, so don't even try.

  2. There is someone in the left cubicle, so you can't go in.

  3. Note the shape of the sign on the right door.

    Square

  4. Open the right door.

  5. Collect the bucket of water, then head out.

  6. Collect both of the signs.

  7. Put one of the signs on top of the other.

  8. Click the overlap to obtain a green man! (#1)

Now head over to the...

Smoking area (right of building)

  1. Speak to the green man to find that he is smoking.

  2. Pour the bucket of water over the green man.

  3. Click on the green man (#2) to collect him!

  4. Note the shape of the smoking sign.

    Circle

Next up, the...

Main service area

  1. STOP!

    Before you go in, wait for a lorry to arrive with green man #3 on the side. I think you have to wait, but if you wait for ages and nothing happens, try pointing at the right edge of the box.

  2. Now you can go in. Click on the pink machine to the left.

  3. Use the bag on the coin slot, then collect the ticket that comes out.

  4. Click the change lever repeatedly until a green man (#4) comes out.

  5. Click the left side of the machine. Collect the loo roll.

  6. Back up, then click on the black man (he actually is black). Give him the ticket. You will receive the machine.

  7. When this machine beeps, give it to the man to receive your meal, which comes with a complementary green man (#5).

  8. Click the green man with the newspaper until he gets angry, then click on him one more time to collect him. (#6)

  9. Note the shape of the food sign.

    Diamond

  10. Turn right.

  11. Ring the bell, then wait for the green man to arrive. Collect him (#7)

  12. Click the left pile (towels?) three times, then collect the revealed green man (#8).

  13. Note the shape of the yen sign.

    y__________
    |yyyyyyyyyy|
    |yyyyyyyyyy|
    |yyyyyyyyyy|
    \yyyyyyyyyy/
    y\yyyyyyyy/
    yy\yyyyyy/
    yyy\yyyy/
    yyyy\yy/
    yyyyy\/
    There's probably a name, but I don't know what it is, so I have to resort to ASCII art. (Ignore the ys)

  14. Turn left twice. You should now be facing a pink (Staffroom) door.

  15. Examine the keypad to the left of the door. You know what to do here.

    The shapes of the signs.

    ASCII art, diamond, circle, square.

  16. Open the door. Collect the green man on the other side (#9).

Our next destination is...

Back to the Toilets

  1. Head into the gents'.

  2. Give the loo roll to the man in the left cubicle. When he comes out, he is green, so collect him (#10). This should be all of the green men.

Congratulations!

@rob.bray: for me, it worked in Firefox after disabling my ad blocker. I noticed that my "disable" list included episode 43 of this same series... and I looked back and I had made this same comment on that game here on jayisgames too. So, just in case that's anyone else's issue.

Yep, they've coded ads on their game, so if you want to play their games, you'll need to deactivate your adblock first.

I wish I could play these games... But it won't let me, even after disabling my adblocker
