Did you get stuck in another room? Not again. I know you're vastly intelligent and always seem to get yourself out but come on, this is getting ridiculous. Fine, have it your way. This time you've landed yourself in Q-Room Escape (by Foresteg) with no way out in sight. You're equipped with a healthy dose of abstract thinking ability and that's your ticket to finishing this escape-the-room game in grand style. You will have to pay close attention to your surroundings for there is no changing cursor to help point things out for you. The few items you will pick up can be located at the bottom of your screen. To combine items you must highlight the object, press About Item, and then highlight a second object to use on the maximized image.
The emphasis on puzzles is great if you're the type of person who prefers solving things instead of figuring out where an object is meant to be placed. However, there's also a minor hiccup for those who love puzzles. In Q-Room it's not mandatory to finish one of the puzzles in order to escape. Initially, this may leave you feeling slighted but don't fret. You can still do the puzzle, the lack of it will only appeal to those of us who are lazy and merely want to have the victory of escape. Despite that, the game is peppered with charming puzzles that will give your brain the mental work out it needed for the day.
