Polar Escape

HopefulNebula The cold can do funny things to you. (Just ask anyone who's sick of hearing the phrase "polar vortex.") So when you're stationed at a polar research station, things can get a bit hairy. In Polar Escape, a new game from Just Pine Games, your coworkers have gone a little cuckoo and locked you in someone's room. Luckily, you were able to radio for help and there's a helicopter waiting. Unluckily, that door's not budging, so you'll have to find another way out. As with most escape games, you play by clicking to manipulate the objects around you. Your inventory is on the bottom, and even before you pick anything up, you have a "force" option there that does come in handy at one point.

Polar Escape Polar Escape might be very short and simple, but its sense of humor and intuitiveness more than make up for its lack of length. The central puzzles all have solutions that actually make sense. There's no need to randomly combine inventory items in hopes of creating something useful. There's no pixel hunting. And the character's commentary on each item is well worth reading through. The graphics are clean and fit well with each other. The fact that there are free mobile versions of the game are icing on the cake. If you want, you can just download it onto your phone and pull it out when you need to fill a few minutes of time. Polar Escape is the kind of game that leaves you hoping for more from the developer. Here's hoping that Just Pine is just getting started.

That was neat, a little short but as the review said, no illogical puzzles!

Here is hoping for more of the same

No illogical puzzles, arguably no puzzles at all

Some of the tags in the review appear to be missplaced.

I'm sold just because there's a poster for The Thing in the preview pic. I look forward to playing this.

I liked this game, but I had trouble with the locker--

I can't see a difference between the two shades of red on that puzzle. Maybe a name in the descriptive field at the top of the window? "Red," "Orange" etc.? Or a colorblind option?

Looks and play's very nicely but it was hardly a challenge.

The only thing I had trouble with was finding the hose, other than that, very easy!
