Although many room escape aficionados prefer long, complicated escapes, sometimes there's enjoyment to be found in brevity, especially if it's done correctly. Dghgbakufu is one designer who knows how to do short and sweet well, and they are here with Chikarou 3, a quick and yet fun little dungeon escape that is perfect for the mid-week break.
The rules are simple, wander around the area and solve a few problems to make it to the outside, none of the usual dungeon escaping methods like digging or tunneling required. It should be noted that Chikarou 3 is definitely not the game for the colorblind, since practically every puzzle in this brief adventure is color-based. And this is indeed a very short game, with basically three main puzzles to solve to escape the rather light and airy concrete structure that you are trapped in. What we're looking at is room escaping stripped to its very essence: small area, no music, very small inventory (room for 3 items), and a single point of escape.
Chikarou 3 (chikarou means dungeon) is a short yet memorable and logical little escape game, a perfect 5 minute and out exercise in escaping. Come and enjoy Monte Cristoing your way out of this amusing little dungeon, hopefully with no need for a long, protracted plan of vengeance once you've made it.
