One Scene 3
When one is very good, you're not going to pass up on more, especially when a Robamimi escape game is concerned. Take One Scene 3, for example. This charming single scene—pretty enough to frame and put on display—is an ample offering of puzzles and code-breaking all taking place along a single wall.
As nice as it is to gaze upon, though, your goal is to "escape" and it's such an irresistible compulsion to explore, play with and solve until you reach the end. Like in most other games of this genre, gameplay centers on finding puzzles and useful bits of information through scanning the scene for interactive areas to point-and-click on. That's just about everything you can behold, which means the changeable cursor is almost unnecessary.
Robamimi is a favorite of ours not only for the gorgeous, 3D-quality graphics, but also because of the relaxing affability of the game interface; a notepad to work out your solutions is the only thing not provided. Clues are cozily nestled amongst the surroundings, not sequestered into obscurity, while the hint function provides reassurance that you'll never be stuck. An intuitive inventory function is also easy to use, so clues and items won't be fumbled. All this kind helpfulness is a bit of a flaw, if anything could be called flawed in such a beguiling design; as much as you'll enjoy playing One Scene 3, you may feel shorted the opportunity to truly rub some neurons together.
Just as One Scene 2 was a step up in style and gameplay from One Scene, this third installment is even more impressive. Besides all the quality features that show Robamimi's enthusiasm for creating great-looking, fun escape games, One Scene 3 has a unique charisma that sets it apart. The reveal at the end and the happy, waltzy music, similar to what you'd hear in a Hayao Miyazaki film, add to this fantasy effect. I think you'll agree—although it's short, this is the best one scene from Robamimi to date. So stop reading and go enjoy some more!
