The story behind Alpinist Escape, by Pine Studios (formerly Just Pine Games) and also free for iOS and Android, is you and your friends go skiing for the first time and your group discovers a cabin. As you walk in you hear the door lock behind you and then presumably the giggles and snorts of your friends as they run off into the cold darkness that is the winter night. Long story short, you need some new friends. If you enjoy solving puzzles and escaping then they are the most thoughtful friends on the earth, because that is exactly what you need to do. The pleasant, soft music and the witty things said when you pick up items are kind of pushing the more happier story where in the end instead of calling the cops or getting in a large fist fight, it will more likely be laughter all around and pats on the back. Alpinist Escape is simple, short, but cheery enough to keep you warm no matter what room you've been locked in.
Alpinist Escape doesn't have as many riddles as an average point-and-click game does, most of the puzzles revolving around finding out what items works with what in the room. You can see a logic behind most of them, even if it doesn't always have to follow the real laws of physics, but you shouldn't be stuck for long. If you are, don't forget that using force is an option. All items you can interact with will pop up text on screen, which can cause a slight issue if you're not actually reading because clicking on either side of the screen will switch your view to another wall. There are a lot of interesting items in these areas that you can't actually look at, so if you don't read what you're about to click on, you can find yourself spinning in circles for a while. But in this cozy atmosphere, wasting a bit more time to look at the lovely decorated cabin can be counted as a blessing.
