Weekday Escape N°128
Another weekday escape means three more escape games selections lined up for you to enjoy, already sorted out so you only get the best. Here you'll get games from Chokochai, TomoLaSiDo and Vitamin Hana.
Three cats Escape from the balcony - Choko-Chai is back with his 3 pesky cats. This time the trouble they're in is pretty immediate. They were caught napping and have been locked outside on the balcony. Can you help them escape? Just be sure to pick English unless you happen to read Japanese when the game starts. Oh and it has one of my very favorite things--a volume adjustment. The Save feature comes in handy when you want to see both endings without playing through from the start twice. This game is clever and fun. The puzzles have a certain internal logic and the cats really steal the show. Sorting out when to 'ask for help' from them is a puzzle in itself. The animations are adorable in game and both endings. The whole thing just made me smile to look at. If you've played any of the Three Cats games you already know this goes by pretty fast. I think of it as a little sweet treat.
Escape Challenge 9 - With very little to work with can you assemble the key and leave this little apartment? Even in such a small, sparsely furnished space, there are plenty of clues hidden. There are also some rather clever puzzles to solve. The most important thing is to pay close attention to detail. With every object having been put in intentionally it's safe to assume that very few things can be overlooked. The colors are soft and easy on the eyes, the transitions are generally smooth and the music is a not unpleasant piano piece. Overall it's an enjoyable exercise in logic and problem solving.
Go for a drive! - You want to use your car for a drive. But it's not so easy... Using shapes, colors, objects, letters, and numbers the array of puzzles is astounding. As with so many games, once you find the right clue the others just seem to fall into place but until then you're shoveling uphill. Still, however it looks at first, there is a clue for every puzzle. With just a little thought and a bit of effort you'll be splashing in puddles before you know it.
