It happened again. Clearly, ninjas have struck you over the head and captured you. Why else do you wake up in this unfamiliar room with no clear exit, arrows nearly taking out your eye as you glance outside for a possible escape route? Which means only one thing: 58 Works has created another mobile escape game to test your skills and wits in Kalaquli R.
Search about the ninja house seeking out clues and tools—and, since threats lurk around almost any corner, weapons—to procure your exit. While true ninja skills might require a lifetime of training, intuitive touch screen controls make your tasks as easy as a tap or swipe to navigate your surroundings, pick up items, manage your inventory and manipulate puzzles.
Although the title and setting are similar to Kalaquli, 58 Works' browser-based game, this is a different game altogether. Because it has only a handful of puzzles, this escape is shorter and easier, making it accessible to most players even if it might well leave you wanting more challenge and additional rooms to explore. There is little to disappoint, though, as the entire production, from graphics to gameplay, is as high quality as you've come to expect from this designer. Beautifully serene aesthetics balanced with a lively premise make for a uniquely fun experience on your mobile device.
