Well, thanks to Stephen King and a dearth of good television (or The Simpsons Movie, take your pick), being trapped under a dome is on a lot of minds lately. At least, on the minds of those escape game fanatics among us who actually like being trapped in strange places and being forced to figure our way out. Isn't it handy, then, that Choko-Chai is there to fuse the two together in Escape from the Dome? As you walk to the top of a lovely hill you spot what else but a futuristic looking dome, which immediately sucks you in and forces you to solve your way out. Fortunately, it's a rather cool place that features not only a kicking pool table but a ceiling straight out of Hogwarts which reflects the outside sky.
All you need to do is not get distracted and try to point-and-click your way out of a series of amusing puzzles, many of them color-based. Navigation through the space is easy with large white arrows pointing the way, and pixel hunting is kept to a minimum due to the handy changing cursor. The backgrounds while clear are a little basic, and some of the color puzzles can get tricky due to muted and difficult to distinguish hues. Despite the minor flaws, including an awkward translation, Escape from the Dome is not rocket science. It's a cute and fun way to pass a few minutes and sharpen those escaping skills. You know, in case you find yourself under a mysterious dome in real life.
