Mobile Monday N°300
Welcome to Mobile Monday!
...and welcome to the 300th edition of Mobile Monday! The first and the second game - by MR.T (Hiroto Morita) and kobabo (Kobayashi Shumpei) are a bit similar. Not visually but conceptually - they are both perfect short breaks with good and clever puzzles, and have gameplay without glitches. Krutovig's (Snapbreak Games) adventure may some players remember as a browser game - now it's available (only) for mobile devices. All bonus games are retro from the best developers - noprops (Mygames888) and Mild Escape/Tesshi-e (Tatsuya Kishi).
All games are free and available in Google Play and in Apple Store except the bonus game 2 (only for iOS).
The first and the second game are relatively short. The third game is medium-sized on a longer side, and bonus games as well.
Escape Game The Unmanned Room
MR.T 's (Hiroto Morita) quite short escape is solid and not difficult, and more amusing than it may seem at the beginning. - don't expect any pixelhunt or overcomplicated puzzles. It's not silly though and hints well thought-out.
Like the previous game, kobabo's (Kobayashi Shumpei) escape is too solid and short, with polished graphics, good puzzles and fluent gameplay. A perfect short relax.
Some players may remeber atmospheric point'n'click adventure by Igor Krutov (Krutovig) Abandoned (original review here). Few years later was released the second chapter Abandoned 2: The Forest not published on JiG because of bugs, followed by Abandoned 3: The Refugee (paid if I remember correctly). All three games were made in Flash, and you can play them on big web games portals only if you install their player. Now is the series available on mobile devices (Snapbreak Games), the first chapter for free and the second and the third paid. So, if you wish to try this adventure or replay the first chapter just from nostalgia, you can - it's an excellent game!
Bonus game 2: Mild Escape's games (Tesshi-e) are sadly not available, neither their browser games nor those for Android users. Only two can be still found in Apple Store under name Tatsuya Kishi:
Room Escape Game - Hot Spring
Room Escape Game - K's Room
