Fleeing the Complex
He's escaped the prison, stolen the diamond, and even infiltrated the airship. Now PuffballsUnited's devious stickman is back for more point-and-click adventuring that may or may not (... probably will...) end in repeated, hilarious failure as he's Fleeing the Complex. See, you play the notorious thief Henry Stick, and you've finally been captured and imprisoned in the Wall, the most ruthless (and chilly!) prison there is. But if you can choose the right actions, these walls won't be able to hold you... but that's easier said than done, of course, since you're frequently presented with a myriad of options each leg of your escape attempt, and many of them, uh... don't work out. Luckily for you, that's part of the game's charm, since it's all voice-acted and animated!
To play, just click to choose what action you want to take whenever you're presented with choices. Don't worry... there's no time limit, so you can take your time and ponder the possibilities, but, um, don't expect the options to make a whole lot of sense. How is "cookie" an option, and where did it come from?! Like the rest of the games in the series, Fleeing the Complex is unabashedly fun and silly, and you're not necessarily supposed to treat it like a puzzle so much as you are to just explore your options and have fun with the results... though of course there are ways to escape! If you want to replay a scene to try something else, click the map icon to hop from place to place. The animation and art may look simple, but they're fluid and expressive, lending themselves to some great comedy, while the voice acting is solid across the board. It's unfortunate that a lack of subtitles means players who have difficulty hearing, or just don't want to play with sound, will miss out on a lot. Fleeing the Complex is funny, weird, and full of possibilities to explore, making it a ton of fun to play through over and over again.
