Walkthrough Guide


(Please allow page to fully load for spoiler tags to be functional.)

Don't Escape was one of my favorite room-escape games. The second in the series does not disappoint!

Guide:

There are a couple items I don't know what to do with, but I think this guide leads to the best ending. It gives you the three "good" achievements.

Base:

Get shovel from left side of room
Get key(?) and copper wires from dumpster
Get metal cutter and bullet in front of building

Crash Site 1 (lower left):

Get gun

Church 1 (lower right):

Get axe

Gas Station (upper right):

Outside - Get bullet and canister
Inside - Get batteries, bottle of water, painkillers, and coin(?)
Use axe on door
Room - Get hose and bullet

General Store (upper left):

Use metal cutter on shopping cart
Use shopping cart on wire fence
Inside - Get alcohol and camera
Use bullet on gun
Kill zombie (shoot it?), get glasses
Use batteries on camera
Outside - Take picture of drawing on wall
Give glasses to survivor

Church 2:

Use shopping cart on bricks
Use shopping cart on cement
Inside - Show picture to survivor

Crash site 2:

Use hose on cop car
Use canister on cop car
(Don't use the gas on the car; there's a better use for it.)
Use axe to collect wood (takes 30 minutes with 2 survivors)

Base (end):

Use painkillers on Bill
Use wire fence on broken gate (takes 1:45 with Bill and 2 survivors)
Use copper wires and fuel canister on generator
Turn on generator
Use shovel to dig hole in front of base (takes 1:30 with Bill and 2 survivors)
Use sticks on hole (takes 45 minutes with Bill and 2 survivors)
Enter base and close door
Use cement and water on sand, mix with shovel
Use bricks on window (takes 45 minutes with Bill and 2 survivors)
Give alcohol to Bill
Kill Bill

Using the axe doesn't attract zombies, but you can afford to shoot him, and it gives an achievement. There might be a way to poison the alcohol or something.

Use metal cutter on padlock
Enter basement and close hatch
Wait the night

The above guide maximizes time left (1:25), though you could reorder things somewhat. There might also be other endings worth trying for (escaping with the car, surviving without other survivors, never using the gun, etc.)

Yay! Enjoyed this one. I like the idea of there being options that have different influences on the story narrative and eventual end point. Restarted half-way through my first play through, and finished successfully (alive) on my second (30 min of play or so). As I'm no expert escape-the-roomer, I suspect this means the game is on the easier side. But given that it has a good (albeit familiar) story line, I give it two thumbs up (out of a possible maximum score of two thumbs).

Great game! I loved the first Don't Escape, so I was pretty happy to see a second one!

Does anyone know how to get "The Governor" achievement? That's the only one I'm missing. I tried

shooting both Jeremy and Fater Bernard with the gun after I set up all my defenses

but that didn't work.

Ohh...

The key locks the door. Duh.

Never mind. I figured out the last achievement.

Here's a guide for anyone needing help in getting all the achievements:

The Survivor:

Survive the night however you need to.

The Merciful:

Get what you need, but make sure you have:

the alcohol from the store, the gun from the crash site, and at least one bullet in the gun.

Back at the base:

Give Bill the alcohol to knock him out, and then shoot him while he's knocked out. Killing him with the axe won't net you the achievement.

Survive the night.

The Shadow:

Don't collect the gun at the crash site and survive the night. You shouldn't need it if you have enough defenses or follow bluemoose19's guide without picking up the gun.

The Savior:

You have to survive the night without letting either survivor get killed. bluemoose19's guide leads to this achievement.

The Governor:

Collect everything you need outside, but make sure you have:

both survivors, the gun from the crash site, and at least two bullets in the gun. Avoid collecting any wood from the crash site.

Once you have those, go back to the base and:

set up the electrified fence and dig the hole with everyone's help. Block the window if you have time. Don't put any spikes in the hole if you collected the wood.

Finally:

shoot both survivors while on the screen with the hole. Kill Bill if you want (killing him with the axe will make it easier to survive, but isn't necessary), lock the door, and then survive the night.

The Lone Wolf:

You have to survive the night without interacting with either survivor and without receiving any help in performing tasks, including from Bill.

To maximize time left to set up your defenses alone:

At the base, collect the shovel, the key, the wires, the first bullet, and the metal cutters.

Go to the church (bottom right) and get the axe and the second bullet.

Go to the gas station (top right) and get the third bullet and the canister outside. Head inside and collect the bottle of water (and if you want, the coin in the cash register). Break the door with the axe to get the hose and the fourth bullet.

Go to the store (top left) and use either the metal cutters or the coin to get the shopping cart. Use the cart to get the reel of wire fence. Don't bother with Jeremy.

Go to the crash site (bottom left) and get the gun. Use the hose on the car, and then the canister on the car to get the gasoline. DON'T spend time collecting wood from the crash site.

Go to the church again and use the cart to collect the cement and the bricks. Don't bother with Father Bernard.

Go back to your base. You should have seven hours remaining.

Once you have everything you need:

Kill Bill using the axe. Don't use the gun, as you need all four bullets when the zombies attack.

Then set up the electrified fence, fix the window, and lock the door with the key (don't spend time digging the hole). You should have 30 minutes remaining.

Enter the basement, close the hatch, and survive the night.

I don't know how to use the

gas canister. it says to use it on the cop car but it just keeps saying it has no gas left but it won't put the gas in it. i'm confused.

Reply

@Paul:

You already filled the fuel canister. It just didn't give any indication that anything had happened. I was confused too. Hover over the fuel canister, and it will tell you that it's full.

andrew.patchell0 February 1, 2015 8:33 AM replied to Paul

You have a container. You need a way to get fuel from where it is stored to that container.

Head back to the gas station and see if there's anything to help you get that fuel out of the police car's tank... if you get frustrated, take your frustration out on that locked door.

About the Lone Wolf achievement:

I'm unable to survive because I always seem to have 5 zombies left over.

Start with 50;

-15 from the electrified fence; (35)

-10 from the window; (25)

-10 from the door; (15)

-5 from falling into the basement; (10)

-5 from gun and axe leaving 5 total.

I'm clearly missing something somewhere. What is it?

Billy: If you're only getting 15 with the fence, you forgot to actually hook it up to the generator. You need to connect it with the pair of wires in the base dumpster in addition to fueling it.

is there any way to kill the zombie in the store without the gun?

lynnehammar927 February 1, 2015 5:58 PM

Loved this game! Played it several times and finally lived to see the dawn.

Reply

I don't know, but maybe

since the next obvious choice - the axe - doesn't have the swing, maybe there's a way to use the pointy sticks?

Then again, I tried to use the shovel and that didn't work either.

Or maybe there's some way to use a hook or something to get the glasses without having to worry about killing the zombie.

I don't know, there were many more creative options unavailable in this game due to the limits of the game.

Let me know how it goes. I prefer being able to make lots of saves in games like this, in order to play through all the endings without having to play the entire game again.

Then again, I also used to 'cheat' when reading Choose Your Own Adventure stories, marking the last 'fork' in the journey just in case this ones leads to a dead end.

Ashiel,
You can kill the zombie in the store

With the shovel, but it breaks. This is only a viable tactic when going for the Lone Wolf, as you don't have to dig the hole.

Reply

Ashiel,

Oops:

I just realized that there's no need to break the shovel on the zombie when going for lone wolf, because there's no need to kill the zombie. I think that means it's a bad choice no matter what.

how do I get the Shadow achievement, the guide didn't help at all

Reply

update: got the shadow achievement, as it turns out, do everything in bluemoose19's guide except for collecting the gun and getting the glasses for Jeremy also DO NOT collect wood for the pit, it will just waste time

Reply

update 2: but still give Bill the pain killers and alcohol then kill him with the axe

Reply
LabChowChow February 8, 2015 3:44 PM replied to Dayle Gibson

Ahh, my mistake. I guess I forgot bluemoose19's guide

required the gun to get Jeremy.

For The Shadow achievement, you could instead

Use the shovel to kill the zombie in the store and get Jeremy's glasses. The shovel does break, so you can't dig a hole or use it to mix the mortar. Use the axe to mix mortar instead, although it will take a little longer to do.

You can still get the wood at the crash site if you have both Father Bernard and Jeremy with you to help. When you set up your defenses, you just won't dig a hole for the spikes and can set a trap with the spikes alone.

Or you could

Follow bluemoose19's guide, but skip the gun, don't kill the zombie in the store, and don't get Jeremy. If you don't dig the hole in the front yard and just set up the wooden spikes (along with the other defenses) with Bill and Father Bernard's help, you should be able to survive the night.

Okay, okay, I'm weird, but I totally dreamed about zombies last night after playing this game :)

I loved it. It was excellent at building suspense and tension without being disturbing and horribly scary. I hope there's a third one!

Reply

if you follow Blue Moose's guide but don't get the wood and ignore the zombie and don't get Jeremy, you have about 5 minutes left

sunnylauren February 10, 2015 10:26 PM replied to Dayle Gibson

Is this for trying to get the Shadow achievement? Because that sounds like what I did and it worked.

Reply
Calcanius February 12, 2015 10:34 AM replied to bluemoose19

amazing walkthrough, though one suggestion; please put

"close the door"

on a separate line, because each other step (i.e. pick up item X) was on a separate line, and wen i got to the end, i forgot to close the door, thus leading to

jeremy's brutal demise

JetSetVegas February 16, 2015 6:23 PM

Very nice! I love how you had to figure out how to do what, when, and in what order to achieve the result you wanted. I unlocked the Survivor, Merciful, and Savior achievements because that's how I wanted it. No Meat-Craving Freak made it into the house.

You can kill the zombie in the store without shooting it...

Just kill it with the shovel, then set up the spikes on their own...You don't have to dig a pit to use the spikes.

Swordrager:

There is no bullet at the church.

There is one bullet

at your home base.

There is another one

outside the gas station.

The last one is

inside the gas station, in the room behind the cash register.
If you cannot open the door,

use force

Although this game retained some of the charm of its predecessor, I found it far less enjoyable both in theme and execution (no pun intended.)

Moral: Better simple than sorry.

You didn't like it? I liked it better. I thought it had more sense of urgency and I liked the different strategies and achievements you could win.

Oh, well. To each his/her own :).

There is a bullet at the Church :

While Bluemoose19's walkthrough explained the main gist of how to go about things, I found it lacking some minor details (to make it easier/reliable to follow) and nor does it guide you through all 6 achievements.
Namely, the 6 achievements are: Survivor, Merciful, Savior, Lone Wolf, Shadow, and Governor roughly in ascending order of difficulty, in my opinion (judging by how many different ways are available to attain a certain outcome.
I managed to achieve all of them in 3 separate runs. Hence, there are 3 separate guides below. Note, I've not mentioned Survivor achievement anywhere since that one is a given in order to successfully complete the game.

Open Padlock to Cellar with Metal cutter
Head inside Cellar & close Hatch
End the day with 2 hours & 50 minutes remaining.

Other Notes:

The following aren't exactly guides as much interesting observations/deviations I found & general thoughts on the game.

Father Bernard

"Father Bernard looks at you with his tired eyes. 'It looks like I was right about not having any faith after all'"
That line got me. It got me more than ending Bill or anything else. The story of hope, or lack of it, was portrayed powerfully throughout the story. The child's drawing included.

Mortar

You can use an Axe instead of Shovel to mix it up. Takes 40 minutes instead of 10.

Spike trap

There is no need to dig a hole to plant the spikes, you can simply plant the spikes on the flat ground to kill the same number of undead (15) as the hole alone. Note, this is less than the hole with spikes combined (20).

Coin

You can use the Coin from Cash register at the Gas station to get the Trolley withouth a Wire cutter.

Car

You can use the Full fuel canister to refill the red undamaged Car & move between locations within 2 minutes instead of the usual 10. Also, it replaces the trolley by allowing you to carry heavy objects around. Plus, you get to roll 'round the neighborhood wif your crew & dem 9mm pew-pews.

Reply

So I actually managed to over-prepare even when I used a single bullet (for "Merciful" use only)

With only that added 5 undead from shooting Bill (I used the shovel to get Jeremy's glasses), I had 55 undead to deal with. And even with 3 other bullets, the ax, and getting in the basement thing, just by repairing and electrifying the fence, putting up posts (sans hole), shoring up the window, and locking the door (thats what that key is for) we survived.

I think that meant there was room to even get that Governor ending (something I was completely uninterested in).
