Similar to the click puzzle from yesterday and its big brother Hapland, this game is all about timing.
Escape from Alcabrass is a point-and-click action game in which you must click or drag objects to create a safe path of escape.
You play as a snail named Maniac trying to escape the clutches of a mad scientist named chef Louis of the Brasserie le Alcabrass. Select one of the three levels to play: the Kitchen, the Sink, or the Lab. You are given 13 tries to get Maniac all the way through each level.
Once a level begins, Maniac will begin moving at a constant pace and will keep moving throughout the level. Simply click or drag on the various objects in the scene to activate devices or move them into position, all at the correct time. If you click or drag too soon, the object will return to its location after a short timeout.
Things to think about to get you started: look for opportunities to build bridges and ramps, disable traps, clear a path, or provide a means of transportation. And if the cursor turns to a hand, then you know it must be good for something. =)
The graphics are top notch and the puzzles are inventive and original. There's probably not much replay value once you figure out what needs to be done, but it's good fun while it lasts. If you get stuck there is even a hint system that shows you where to click (but don't do that it will spoil the fun!). Created by the talented folks at Grinlock design studio in the UK. Click.
