You arrived at his office in the late afternoon. It's not often a private eye gets to investigate a rival. But on the other side of the door, what everyone but you expected happens: you're hit over the head. When you awake, you're trapped inside. Now you must use your wits and detective skills to escape in Noir Escape, a light homage to film noir in an escape game created by Tomislav Podhraski.
As you sleuth out clues and tools, a changing cursor and messaging for every interactive area keeps you in the know. If the scene's a little too noir for your tastes, just click the light icon in the top right corner to brighten it up. Most of the action revolves around discovering useful objects and putting them to use, which is so in character, the fact that there's only one real code to break is easily forgiven. Although you'll probably get out faster than you can ask, "Is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?" While Noir Escape ain't exactly hard boiled, the subtle parody and smooth navigation make this one a keeper.
