TrinnMust Escape the Pet ShopOh, sleepy escapers, won't you ever learn? You've point-and-clicked through so many challenges and freed yourself from so many prisons only to fall victim to the clich�d curse of narcolepsy once again. In this room escape by Selfdefiant, you dozed off while petting a kitten at the Little Critters pet store and woke up to find yourself locked securely inside. It's unlikely the owner will appreciate discovering someone hiding out with their fluffy merchandise, so you're left with only one option: you Must Escape the Pet Shop! That is, if you can keep yourself awake long enough.

Use the mouse as your guide to inspect and interact with the areas, items, or animals in each room. Directional arrows at the sides of the screen allow you to turn left and right, and a changing cursor helps to identify important objects. Your progress is saved automatically (likely in anticipation of your unpredictable sleeping habits), but it probably won't take you more than a few minutes to finish given the game's relatively short length and the low difficulty of its simple and logical puzzles. Fluffy animals and bright, cartoony graphics offer a kid-friendly experience and just enough mental stimulation before your next power nap.

Stuck. I have the

red, orange, and green gems, but I seem to be missing one.

I have the

chair, but not the


I've seen the

shapes in the

snake room.

I've even

disarmed the alarm.

But now I'm at an impasse. Help?



I'm also stuck in the same place, except I haven't yet

disarmed the alarm


Power of posting.

@ray9na, have you looked

behind the poster in the snake room? Click on the right hand side of it



Combine two clues from the scene with the desk.




I'd been clicking all around the poster, but after you said something, I realized that I hadn't tried turning the lights back on.

ThemePark August 16, 2012 10:53 AM

I'm stuck too.

I've gotten so far as to getting the key to the exit door, but I haven't found any clues for turning off the alarm, and all I have left is the key for the door.


my turn to be stumped. I'm missing the square gem.

I'm sure its by the cat who wants treats but i've clicked everything, nothing picked up to give.

aside from that, I too am stumped on the alarm unlock, is it anything to do with the color scheme?


I can't seem to find

a snack for the kitten

. I'm assuming I need that to get

the green gem




the cat snacks, explore ALL of the shelves



Thanks, Rich. I was sure I had

run across each shelf several times

but apparently not enough.

This game was pretty unsatisfying, but not as bad as the Park game yesterday. Can we get some quality Escape games around here? Are they falling out of fashion or what?

hothotpot August 16, 2012 12:01 PM

Wow, that was actually much simpler than I thought at first. For those stuck on the alarm code:

Check the scene with the desk. What can you click on that might correspond to one another?

There is a picture of a dog, a cash register, and a phone. Well, we've already used the cash register right? So that leaves the phone and dog picture...

I bet you can figure it out from there.

ThemePark August 16, 2012 12:04 PM

Thanks hothotpot, I actually thought that was to be used for the puppies room.

inheritance.fan August 16, 2012 1:15 PM

I can't open the snake door.

inheritance.fan August 16, 2012 1:19 PM

Power of posting. I was sure I'd put that code in before. :/
But the alarm code has me stumped.

Unless it's the number of animals?

inheritance.fan August 16, 2012 1:22 PM

Apparently not.
Ah, got it.

What name is on the dog poster?

And what does that correspond to on the phone?


I'm still missing the last...



Nevermind, I hadn't tried...

...turning around in the snake room...

...with the lights off.



walkthrough, please :)


Well you were right about the dozing off risk :)
