There's a tornado heading your way in Pine Studios' Catastrophe Escape, but your car has broken down in the middle of nowhere next to a deserted gas station, and if you want to escape the incoming storm, you'll need to scavenge for repair supplies and everything you need for the road. To play, just click to interact... the cursor will change when you mouse over something interactive, and display the name of whatever you're touching at the top of the screen. Items in your inventory can also be combined by clicking on first one object, and then the other. Most of the puzzles you'll encounter revolve around simply figuring out which item to use where, which does take a little creative thinking, and at least one of the item uses could stand a little subtle prompting to clue you in to what the game wants you to do, as opposed to what you might, y'know, rationally do. The ending is a little anticlimactic, and once you figure out what the game wants you to do the whole thing won't take longer than a few minutes, but a great sense of style and atmosphere make this a bite-sized escape worth checking out... though you might want to deal with any oncoming tornadoes first.

That was really cute! Just enough of a challenge for me, and I easily get lost in these games, so... :) And I love how gentle the feel of the game is. The tornado is about the only scary part I saw, which surprised me when it's visually so dark. Speaking of which, they handled the lighting well. I could clearly see everything I needed to. Really cool game!
As soon as I saw
the soda machine
the mints for sale in the store
I knew that this game was legit. Yes, with
all escapes are possible! :D
That was pretty fun! It had a good mix of puzzles, and the logic wasn't too out there. Except for maybe the
bit that lavamuffin is referring to! Combining the mints and soda I got to rather quickly, but... well, it wouldn't be my immediate thought for how to open a door.
I think the best hint for this is in the review, remember to try combining items. Overall it's a good escape game, I liked it!
Nice game. One of the few I got through without a walkthrough, yet not completely obvious. :)
Man, that was awesome! I did have a chuckle at the Coolbuddy intro followed by the darkish theme of the game though.
Liked this one a lot ... I like escape games where items are combined and strong math skills are not required :)
There is nothing about the bus? Nice, I'm surprised to complete the game shortly.
