Weekday Escape

elleWhat three free escape games do we have in store for you this Weekday Escape? Well, that's a question worth exploring in more detail, so I'll give you some key facts and see if you can guess without peeking. The first is from a designer who makes perfect use of minimalism, hiding clues in the decor, and is well-known to us here at JIG, although the brief offerings have sometimes escaped our notice. Next, these guys, always green and poised to escape, sure do get in an awful lot of trouble but they're also sure to bring the laughs—as long as we can find them. Lastly, this game series, more new to our escaping crew, has clever puzzles and quirky drawings to extend the hidden buttons fun...

Escape from the Strange Locker RoomEscape from the Strange Locker Room - No, Hottategoya's locker room isn't strange because it's clean and fresh smelling, but because of the mysterious hints and codes hidden about the room. If you ever want to see sunlight again, then find them all and put them to good puzzle-solving use. The single room is a welcome attribute for players who skipped this author's maze-like offerings. Here the focus is solely careful observations and decoding clues rather than catching your bearings and finding your way around. All in all, it's the standard Hottategoya affair: solve three codes and you're out—a pleasant escape with smart puzzles, albeit too short to fully satisfy.

Find the Escape-Men 116: The CrisisFind the Escape-Men 116: The Crisis - a bomb "Oops!" is not a good thing. Those last few seconds of your life can feel like an eternity, though. Maybe that's enough time to save yourself? With a little help from your little green friends, that is. Just remember to look floor to ceiling, as No1Game's unchanging cursor isn't much help and there's not always a navigational indication of where you can go, because the challenge is less about solving puzzles and more about the actual seeking of escape-men. Alone they aren't much help at all—considering how they like to hide behind specific pixels or leave you waiting a long time before deciding to show up—but together they form one mighty hero.

Button Escape 23Button Escape 23 - Tototo Room knows how to make a game of "find the little grey spot and click it" be a lot more enjoyable than it sounds like it is. Sometimes it's simply a matter of using keen eyesight, looking closely for even a fragmented peek of grey circle, and other times you'll have to piece together the clues to solve puzzles and open doors. You'll need eleven buttons to open the door, then you're free! There's not much more too it than that; we could discuss its quirky hand-drawn aesthetics or unchanging cursor like the last time, but the remarks are mostly the same: fun!

We love escape games, and our readers love talking about them and sharing hints! How about you? Let us know what you think, ask for clues, or help out other players in the comments below.

Just finished locker room. Good one, took me a moment to realise two things:

There is not a code for the arrow buttons, per se

and

Numbers can be spelled out (duh, I feel clever that this took me more than 2 minutes to remember)

Still have to play button escape but so far these are the perfect type of escape games for a little break in the day. Enjoyable little fun. Now if I can just find some educational escape games for my students.

I'm missing one Escape Man. I'm pretty sure that

the clock

has something to do with it, but I have no idea how. I have EM's from

the side of the clock, the sign on the door, side of the bomb, backs of both pieces of paper, broken brick, waiting by the broken brick, under the bricks, and the 3 letter code. I also have a crowbar that I can still use.

Where's the last one?

Anybody completed Button Escape 23? I am stuck on the 3rd and 5th buttons on the top row.

I have unlocked the "How Much?" picture on the left but I don't get it. I also need the code for the red book (?) on the right.

Okay, power of posting on EM, I got it. But now I'm stuck on the button room. If buttons are arranged:
1 2 3 4 5
6 7 8 9 10 11
I'm missing 3, 5, and 8. I think I know the location of one but can't figure out how to get it pressed. Also I don't know the code for one of the boxes and I got

behind the painting

but don't know what to do with the info there.

Sonic:

How long should I stare at that patch of wall? Are you referring to the wall to the right of the safe? That's the only spot I'd consider suspicious, since the safe is offset to the left.

Last week I learned:

I never knew that escape men were a real thing.

I just got back from Japan and was surprised and hilariously amused to see escape men as symbols in every exit sign in stores. I had to stop and stare.

Also, I went to the Cup Noodles museum and saw little yellow chicks everywhere. I never knew that these little chirps existed outside of escape games!!! Who knew??

@leopardmask

I can't remember which one that was. Ones that were particularly sneaky were:

Unroll the rug fully then click on the corner nearest the wall

Bottom left of open umbrella

Close the padlock on the floor and there's one behind it

Any of them help? I'm still stuck on 3 and 5

I got button number 5:

It is inside the red box. To open the red box use the key from the blue safe on the orange painting and get a clue. Now click on the red box on the left side to see a number. Put in the number and you get a white package. To open it you must click somewhere around the top right corner.

Now I just need button number 3??!!

Check the left side of the box, where the yen note is. Check the upper right of that screen.

the floaty head on the wall
the loose brick between the V and the III
left side of the clock
sign over the door
under the door
the orange clue to the safe

Zoom in on the lower left of the bomb. The paper is an ever-so-slightly lighter shade of gray than the bomb itself. Play with your monitor contrast if you still can't see it.

@ PAgent

okay i have tried all levels of contrast and still cannot see any paper. On my monitor the bomb is black and has a white semi-circular strip of "highlight" in closeup. It's sitting on an aqua background and on either side are gray bricks. The bottom of the bomb intersects with a navigation bar. What should I be clicking closer to?

PAgent:
I should have said

the loose brick between the V and the III AND waiting for the other one to show.

I messed up on my list because

the one on the sign and the one under the door are the same one.

So I'm still missing one.

As for your pixel hunt

click to the lower left of the bomb in the blue space between the bomb, the floor, and the wall. When it goes to close-up, the paper is a gray square that looks kind of like a light reflection.

Took me awhile to see it too.

I´m missing the same EM as @kurt. I´ve got

The one on the side of the bomb
The one on the back of the paper from the other side of the bomb
The one from the left of the clock.
The one from the escape sign (it falls down so you have to pick it up)
The one from the back of the orange paper below the door
The one in the safe
The one floating on the wall next to the safe (you have to wait for it)
The one behind the broken brick
The one that turns up after a while behind the broken brick.

So where is the last one? I feel the

crow bar

must have something to do with it, since

I still have it.

I like playing the escape men games but I don't like the "wait around for a green guy to appear" puzzle that they all seem to have. I only ever see them because I was thinking about something or, as in the case of this one, I came here to find a tip and the

floating green giant head guy appeared in the game while I was scrolling down the comments.

I would have never found that one on my own if I hadn't accidentally been looking in that direction in the game when I clicked over to JIG.

AUGH!

But I did get out pretty fast despite this one having several accidental-finds.

That green guy is going to need some pepto!

For your remaining escape man

Where do balloons go when you let go of them?

They go up.

Your missing escape man is

floating inside a balloon above the safe, if you click the upper part of the wall.

Thanks a lot, @shipoopie!
The end clip had me wondering if

there was going to be some little bonus game

or something.

Btw I actually like the "watch and see if something turns up" stuff :)

Love the Bomberman reference in EM!

Hints for Escape from the Strange Locker Room:

Spoiler 1:

To open the 80 locker, look for a clue in one of the other lockers.

The jumbled letters.

Spell out EIGHTY by clicking the corresponding locker in order.

Spoiler 2:

To open the box, look for clues in 3 different locations.

Certain lockers have colored lines

The lines make up the numbers you need for the box code.

Spoiler 3:

The code for the 4x4 panel is in another locker. You might need a pen and paper.

One set of lockers reveals the path you need to draw. But it's incomplete?

The arrow buttons shift the lockers over so you can see the whole thing.

Man, I couldn't beat any of these...

Escape Men:

I couldn't find the last one despite a list of their locations. I never saw the one listed as "under the bricks"

Button Hunt:

The red safe wouldn't accept the colored shapes clue even though I did put it in right

Locket Room:

The locker with "80" on it wouldn't open so I could solve the puzzle

@Gabe Puratekuta:

Under the bricks is the same as the one from the sign, it falls down under the door when you click it

Here are the EM locations:

The one on the side of the bomb
The one on the back of the paper from the other side of the bomb
The one from the left of the clock.
The one from the escape sign (it falls down so you have to pick it up)
The one from the back of the orange paper below the door
The one in the safe
The one floating on the wall next to the safe (you have to wait for it)
The one floating in the air above the safe after you click the balloon
The one behind the broken brick
The one that turns up after a while behind the broken brick.

Paul, there should be enough hints here in the comments to at least make an attempt at all the games - for example, see Hespetre's comment directly above yours for a list of the EM locations.

(I haven't even had a chance to *play* this week's games, so no walkthroughs from me yet.)
