Link Dump Fridays

DoraWith chain-reaction shooting action, one final Halloween escape hurrah, a point-and-click puzzle about funky bunnies, and a lesson in fitting in delivered through puzzle form, this week's Link Dump Friday is a little eclectic, but that's how we like it!

  • Easy Joe 2Easy Joe 2 - The sequel to 2010's point-and-click puzzle game Easy Joe is just as swanky and weird as the original, which is to say very. All you have to do is figure out the right order in which to click things to proceed, doing important things like playing volleyball, disrupting showers, and accidentally destroying churches. As before, Easy Joe 2 is very easy even if it's significantly longer, but when you consider it essentially launched this style of simple puzzle adventure and take in its smooth jazz and neon visuals, daddy-o, you'll probably forgive it.
  • Shapes 'N' MatesShapes 'N' Mates - Developed in just 48 hours, Major Bueno's quirky puzzle game will take a lot less time to finish, but is definitely worth it for the chuckle or ten you'll get as you try to rearrange sentient shapes to unlock a treasure... perhaps the most important treasure of all. There's a twist, of course, but the real stars are the strange cast of characters you're working with, and the game's unique style shines even if it is a blink-and-you'll-miss-it affair.
  • Magic Halloween EscapeMagic Halloween Escape - Since this article technically goes up on November 1st, Halloween is over, but since I'm writing it on October 31st... have one last seasonal huzzah! Esklavos provides this little escape game for tender lumplings everywhere in which you must help a huntsman find his brother and escape from a... uh... menacing witch. With a weird vibe and otherworldly atmosphere, the game's biggest problem is a lack of feedback for its puzzles that makes figuring out what you're looking at or trying to do a bit of a challenge.
  • 10 More Bullets10 More Bullets - The whole point of shooters is spraying things with bullets, so Michel Gerard deciding to give you a measly ten of them for the entirety of the game seems like a weird choice. The catch, however, is figuring out how to cause the most damage by triggering chain reactions and earning power-ups and gold to buy upgrades. It's actually a clever concept, though perhaps hampered by the fact that the only objective is to increase your score, which gets a bit old after a while.

Regarding Magic Halloween Escape:

I agree that the minimal feedback is frustrating. But I have trudged my way through almost to the end. But,

I can't seem to find the gold key

I have placed the eyeball in the skull but do not know what to do next.

The power of posting...and I'm out!


Why does everyone in magic Halloween escape look like they just "escaped" from the cover of a particularly trashy romance novel?


For Magic Halloween Escape, does anyone know where I can find a clue to the

8x8 grid?


Never mind. It was

on the parchment with the potions instructions

Stuck on the halloween escape.

I've used the gold and blue keys, I have four of the leaves needed to make the potion (two from the witch's stage and two from the barrel), can't see what's making the pumpkins move, and can't open the chest. What should I do first?

Check the parchment for the last leaf.


For Magic Halloween Escape, I am stuck.

I have in my inventory:




I need the

gold key



Looked up a walkthrough.

The name Woodeneye may be a red herring.

The skull needs two eyes.

The symbol on the parchment is not just a symbol.


I'm stuck on Magic Halloween Escape...

I have 4/5 leaves, 5/5 pumpkins, shovel, file, pick, bottle. I thought the door had the grave puzzle solution but that turned out to be wrong...

The grave puzzle solution is on the potion recipe.


And where is that?



Pay attention to the sticks from which hang the cauldron.


Easy Joe made me laugh. That was great for a few minutes of poking.


Joe Bunny has an adventure!

Don't tell Anya, though. Not only are there bunnies, but some midgets make an appearance.

Hoverboard> Dora Webcomic xkcd has been around for over a decade, and to celebrate the release of his new book, creator Randall Munroe has created a very simple piece of platforming interactive art. But venture beyond the small playing field, and you'll find a much bigger world than you thought that's full of surprises.  ...
Rock 'n' Roll Escape> Dora Pine Studio serves up a short but rock-worthy escape in your browser or free on iOS and Android as you try to find your way out of a cozy, abandoned little concert venue. But with a soundtrack this catchy, will you be able to resist air-guitaring long enough to escape?  ...
Weekday Escape N°103> Dora This week on Weekday Escape! no1game gets inside your computer and asks if you WANT TO PLAY A GAME? (Maybe you should call Matthew Broderick?) MayMay isn't letting you go anywhere until you get these snails out of the yard. And Vitamin Hana turns you right 'round baby, right 'round.  ...
Supermuzhik> Tricky Supermuzhik is an arcade-action sorta-shooter game by Aimar where the titular hero proves to be much better at "defeating evil" than "protecting the innocent", as he uses his telekinetic vision to fling the latter into the former. Viscerally enjoyable in its destruction, even if its difficulty takes a surprise leap about a third of the way in.  ...
