During Detarou's stint in Jayisgame's escape game scene, we've witnessed many zany performances which raised more than a hair or two with their boundary-pushing antics. So it's absolutely fitting that Detarou would stage this latest brain teaser here, in Barbershop Escape. Strange is the style of the day and the only thing usual about it is the goal: find the way out by collecting clues, decoding codes, and solving the puzzles that bar the exit.
A changing cursor will alert you to interactive areas and places to zoom in while arrows on the edges of the screen indicate where and when you can turn. Point and click through each scene this way, paying close attention to every detail. Barbershop Escape is on the difficult side, with abstruse puzzles that might leave you tearing your hair in confusion. Avoid that frustration by thorough exploration before attempting an apparent solution that turns out to be no solution at all. Remember, even if a Detarou game seems to have no propriety, it's never without logic and sufficient, at times recycled, clues. Right-brained thinkers have the advantage here as well.
Navigation here could have you feeling like a robot, often turning at sharp angles rather than more direct routes to your destination. This could be a complaint for those who like simpler layouts but is a delight for those fans who enjoy moving around a diverse and large space. Once again there are three endings to discover: normal, perfect and bad. Get cozy with the SAVE button and stay on guard lest capricious pandas catch you with your guile down. Those furry black-and-white pranksters have some fresh tactics to try out on you. Outsmarting them and safely escaping is just one of many reasons why playing Barbershop Escape is so satisfying.
