Dr. Ichie's Room
One of the more disappointing aspects of escape the room games is that there are so many that appear but relatively few of them are worthy of your time. We try to highlight only the best of the best, which still results in a less than 'exceptional' experience from time to time, but Weekday Escape is here to save the day!
This week's feature is Dr. Ichie's Room, an exceptional and straightforward game from Japan that fortunately includes a (rough) English translation for most of the descriptions and explanations it contains. From Bianco Bianco, the same team that created Mystery House: Escape from Beginning Room, the graphics it contains are polished and appealing, and there are no pixel hunts necessary. Only once is there a leap from logic—something appears only after you complete a puzzle. Other than that one minor issue, the game is a solid escape game experience and is highly recommended for fans of the genre. If you don't usually care for this type of game, you're not likely to change your mind as this offers a fairly standard, even though exceptional, game play experience.
