Find the Escape-Men 53 in the Service Area
There's nothing like a really long car ride with the throb of a well-tuned engine... the thrum of tires against asphalt... the hum of the climate controls... the rattling of one of the fan vents... the numbness in your left leg... the whining of your passengers... the crackle of the radio as you JUST TRY TO FIND A DECENT STATION IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE... uh, eventually, in any long-distance ride, a person needs to just pull over and stretch their legs, hit the restroom, and maybe find something to eat. Not a problem in more populated areas, but if you are in the vast stretches between towns sooner or later you might want to brave the nearest rest stop, also known in other parts as the service area, home to squabbling families, long-haul truckers, interstate serial killers, and apparently escape men. No1game is back with the road trip that refuses to die in Find the Escape-Men 53 in the Service Area, yet another road trip themed escape. Are we there yet?!?!
The inevitable sequel to Part 51 (Traffic) and Part 52 (Gas Station) sees the long-suffering traveler attempting to catch a break at a fairly decent looking Service Area, one that is home to restrooms, restaurants, a gift shop, and the inevitable green escape men. Why these little international symbols of an exit want to keep hiding in the scenery is a mystery that is once again explored in point-and-click format. The problem, you see, is that although it's nice to get out of the car and move around a bit, you won't be able to get back on the road until you find ten of the little slackers and make them get back to their jobs. No1game serves up an amusing little mini-escape with a couple of puzzles, some combining of found items, and a lot of annoying the folks around you. Find the Escape-Men 53 in the Service Area reminds us that in the vast excursion that is life it is not the destination but the journey that is important. And, you know, the escaping.
