Escape Series #1: The Car
From Shawn Tanner of Afro-Ninja comes a bare-bones room escape game with no story, no characters, no motive, just raw point-and-click gaming. The first of what is planned to be a series, Escape Series #1: The Car puts you in the driver's seat of a parked and locked car with no apparent way out. Explore the vehicle, gather and combine items and see how quickly you can get out!
The game follows a fairly logical layout without forcing you to hunt for new places to click on every screen. There are only four main views to explore, two of which have hidden compartments to take a gander at. There are about half a dozen items and a few of them can be combined.
Analysis: As far as room escape games go, Escape The Car gets just about everything right. It doesn't venture into any new territory as far as gameplay or visuals go, but sometimes you have a hankering for a good old fashioned point-and-click game, and The Car delivers just that and not a drop more. It will only take you about 15 minutes to complete on the first run, which may seem a bit short, but it's still remarkably satisfying. One annoyance is the incessantly ticking clock at the bottom of the screen. It drove me batty. Nothing turning down the volume couldn't solve, though, as sound isn't necessary to play the game.
Take a spin in The Car, a short but satisfying title, the first in a promising series of escape games.
