Escape: The Ruby of Judgment

JohnBHide and seek can be a very serious past time, but it loses som`e of its appeal when bad things start to happen as a result of an innocent game. Escape: The Ruby of Judgment is a point and click escape game from the talented folks at IDAC, the mobile division of Gotmail. Featuring lovely stylized visuals and an impressive battery of puzzles, this somber but entertaining release proves you don't need a mouse to craft a good escape game!

Escape: The Ruby of JudgmentYears ago, you and your friends used to play hide and seek near an old church. One day, one of the girls hid so well nobody could find her. You eventually stumbled across her ruby ring near the well behind the church. Part of you knew what happened to her, but fear drove you to keep quiet. The next day the girl was found at the bottom of the well. Time passed and your two other friends also died under mysterious circumstances, leaving you all alone when you received a strange card with childlike handwriting on the front that read "give me back my ring". You returned to the old church to find everything looked exactly the same. As the doors closed themselves behind you, one word stuck clearly in your mind: escape!

Move through the world of The Ruby of Judgment using the on-screen arrows, gathering items and investigating things with a few simple taps. The inventory works in a similar manner, hovering on the fringes of the screen awaiting your command. The whole setup is very similar to Little Red in Danger, complete with the same challenges and faults. The visual style really is spectacular and the story immediately gives you a sense of empathy with the main character, drawing you into the world so it becomes more than a simple "get out of this room" puzzle game. Sadly, you can't interact with everything you see, mostly just things directly related to the puzzles.

I hope someone is still checking this because I'm stuck and in dire need of help. I figured out the screwdriver clue, and understand how it correlates to the window, but I just can't seem to get the right letters, as some combinations yield more than one possibility, namely the first and last letter, and I've tried them all.

Well, figured it out myself, seems the letters need to be entered in uppercase.

Can you explain to me how you figure the code in the screwdiver?

There is a walkthrough mistitled "ruby of engagement" around the internets. There's no way I could have completed this game without it, the clues and puzzles are so abstruse.

If you are after some casual escape fun my advice is not to bother with this game, it is frustratingly obscure. If, however, you are the type who likes to bang your head against your desk until it takes the same shape of the game designer's you might derive some pleasure from it.
