Mobile Monday N°320
Welcome to Mobile Monday!
This Monday we've got three standard escapes - from a traditional Japanese hotel by shou harata, from another one with a yard under the full moon by Room's Room (Daichi Simada) and then from a living room by Scaebako Productions (Mai Ukita). All three games are clever and good looking.
All games are free and available in Google Play and in Apple Store.
The first and the second game are medium-sized, the third one short.
Escape Japanese Hotel
Shou harata doesn't want you to escape any island this time. You are locked up in a beautiful hotel room with a bath and a balcony, and you need to properly explore it, solve several good puzzles and out. The puzzles are not what they seem - sometimes you need an additional clue to solve a puzzle which looks simple but isn't so much.
Japanese game, description of items and notes in Japanese, not a problem to get through.
Escape Game Nagori Sakura
Spring is coming soon and as every year, Room's Room (Daichi Simada) delivered their game with sakura tree in blossom. At the beginning it's just a bare tree in a yard, but after you perform a small spell, the whole tree comes to flower in a second. It's at full moon night, of course - you can't imagine more magical circumstances!
Japanese game, small language barrier. In two puzzles - at the beginning and in the last one in the game - you're supposed to fill in Japanese signs. You don't need to understand, just visual memory is required. If you aren't sure use a hint (in the upper right corner of the game screen after an ad).
Rather short escape by Scaebako Productions (Mai Ukita) closely follows the genre rules - you are locked up at home, and you want to get out. Of course, you don't have a key and therefore you need to open all the locked boxes/cases/suitcases lying around the apartment. Not a big deal - the puzzles aren't difficult.
Japanese game, mostly translated to English (you don't get all information about playing etc.), not a problem to get through.
