Weekday Escape N°21
The endless locked doors and wobbly picture frames. Irascible locks on every surface refusing to chime brightly and divulge their secrets. A horde of evil pandas. These will be the denizens of my nightmares someday, the hazards of the JIG escape game studio, as each week I recline in my yellow rocking chair, thick black glasses, and cigar stuck out of the side of my mouth, pre-screening the Weekday Escape hopefuls. It hasn't reached that point yet. Someday, though. Someday. Until then, I can only dream of elevating my escape game nerdiness to such levels of coolness. You can say you knew me when. And how, here's this week's feature: go ahead, stay up late; it could be worth it.
Find the Escape-Men 98: Horse Racing - No1Game's latest 10 hidden green guys games—with its multiple areas to search, two endings, and slightly more complex puzzle construction—falls short of its own spotlight because of a few tiny but enjoyment-stifling missteps in the pacing. It's like when you're watching a pretty good movie and know it could just be better if only they let you step in as director for the day to make a few edits and cuts. As consolation, it gets top billing in this week's WE line-up and is touts approved.
Candy Rooms No.8: Azure Pop - from FunkyLand may be more fanfare than actual substance; but, who cares? The hip décor and bright colors inspire happy thoughts and tapping toes. No time to feel let down that there aren't more things to do in this way cool room, just set your sights on finding the 5 candies and enjoy it while it lasts. Besides, if we were ranking the series, this entry lands on the more complex end of the scale: fun clue presentation and not quite obvious answers give it the thumbs up.
Chicks Hide and Seek 17 - Rounding out our trio comes Yuri with another hide-and-seek-centered escape. It could be subtitled "Adorableness in Space". Eschewing gravity and glumness, this plucky brood of darling chicks employ camouflage, locks and clever item usage to conceal themselves from your gaze. While not exactly easy, it's less a brain teaser and more a round of peekaboo with your cheeky baby nephew, all the entertainment here is in the cuteness. Got to chuckle as I wonder, though, how those baby chicks get themselves into the places they do.
We love escape games, and our readers love talking about them and sharing hints! How about you? Let us know what you think, ask for clues, or help out other players with your walkthroughs in the comments below.

Main screen: Click on the left man on "Toilet".
Entrance: Click a bit to the left of the bottom of the leftmost pillar, and get the paper. Back out once, and give it to the green man to the right. Click on him.
Use your wallet on the shop in "Entrance", and give the ice-cream to the green man in "Field". Go to "Entrance" again, and buy another ice-cream. Give it to the man in "Field", back out, and click on "Field" again. Click on the green man to get him.
Zoom in on "Paddock", and get the man standing in the middle, having a little different color. Go to "Passage", and turn left. Use the man on the spot on the floor. Turn right, and then turn left again. Wait until the cutscene ends, and click on the window. Click on the green man.
Choose the left path in "Passage", and open the left part of the grey cabinet. Get the binoculars, and use them on the blinking spot in "Field". Click on the green man to get him.
Choose the right path in "Passage". Click on the left horse, and then on the tail. Click on the green man to get him.

Back out twice, take the right path, and click on the rightmost horse.Use the "Paper string" on the nose of the horse a few times, and then click on the green man to get him.
Paddock: There is a green man in the background. Click him.
When the sprinkler system in "Paddock" is activated, click the rainbow to zoom in on it. Click on the green man to get it. (I believe the sprinklers activate, when you have found 7 escape-mans, but i'm not totally sure at that point.)
Get the remote on the left side of "Paddock". You can find 4 clues in various places, that tells you the code:
- 1 rectangle in the main view of "Passage"
- 2 trapezoids in the main view of "Passage"
- 3 circles on the rice poster, when turning left from the main view of "Passage"
- 4 stars in the main view of "Entrance"
Zoom in on the remote, and type the code "Rectangle, Trapezoid, Circle, Star" in. Push OK. Click on the green man to get him.
Not betting on NO.7 and NO.4.
Betting on NO.7 and NO.4.

WALKTHROUGH for CHICKS HIDE AND SEEK #17
CHICKS! IN! SPAAAAAAAAACE!
Let's take a look around.
You start on the control room with the big main window. Explore these interesting things…
There is a chick in a apace suit floating outside!
There is a chick stuck behind one of the blue panels
There is a circle and triangles whatsit next to the green square on the left.
Then, go left.
Let's call this the six sided hatch.
Nothing to see here.
When you're done with all of that (whew!) go left.
It's probably a perspective view of a long hallway, but let's call it a ramp up to a big door instead. What can we find here?
Take a closer look at the big door.
Did you see the chick?
Hiding on the lower right. chirp!
Now, let's see what these yellow rectangles are all about. They're probably fancy space lights.
Focus your attention on the green dots on the left. See anything interesting?
There's a chick hiding in the top light! chirp!
When you explored the lights on the right you probably accidentally found…
…that one of those big gray panels opens up.
Want to see a neat space orb? Go left. This place is filled with interesting things to explore.
There's something interesting about those yellow squares.
There's something interesting about -- hey there's a chick inside that orb! Can you get him out?
There is a vertically oriented rectangle button and three round buttons vertically arranged on the orb stand.
You probably need to press the round ones in some order and then press the rectangle one.
The correct sequence is…
…arrow X3. Probably. Remember that from the ramp?
Try pushing the round buttons bottom to top.
Now try it 3 times before pushing the rectangle. chirp!
When you get the chick out, you also find a suction cup. Interesting.
Those are some interesting windows up there. Hey, another chick is trapped!
It's a good thing that these windows are made of a clean, smooth material.
Like how what a suction might require for it to work properly.
Put the suction cup you got from the base of the orb on the window and pullet. chirp!
While we're up here, might as well explore to the right.
Those windows are up to their old tricks again. Get the screwdriver.
Okay, that's enough sightseeing. Time to get serious.
Go left and you're back at the control room.
You've got to save the chick behind the blue panel.
With the screwdriver. Natch.
So what's up with the whatsit on the left next to the green square? Probably some kind of controls. But, what does it control and how is it used?
Can that arrow have anything to do with it? Some kind of cryptic spaceman instructions?
The arrow isn't much help, but the triangles do go in different directions.
What else in this space ship goes in different directions?
Did you notice how the windows trapping the chick and the screwdriver behaved? Over there above the orb.
There's more than one window. Try opening all of them.
From left to right, they open…
Use what you learned on the controls, but don't forget…
that big arrow under the controls.
The actual sequence is…
down-left-right-up-right-down. Then press the circle.
That did it! A space arm grabbed the chick outside the big window. But where did it take him?
By now, you should have saved seven total chicks. Brave space explorers, all. But, there are ten to find, so let's keep going.
Time for some free form exploration. Go look around all the places you've been. And, check out all the areas you just ignored because they didn't seem important or logical.
Did you find the hidden, secret Star Wars room?
You can find it near the six sided hatch.
Click between the arrows near the bottom
Neither of these chicks is your father, but one of them is in a space suit. The arm brought him inside! And what an interesting gem that is! chirp!
The other chick is still not your father and doesn't even want to look at you.
The view out the window is much better.
And, hiding in the glare of the sun is pretty sneaky. chirp!
Nine chicks and counting. But what was the gem all about?
Let's count the sides.
Remember seeing anything with six sides?
Use the gem to open the six sided hatch.
Don't be afraid little one. All of your friends are here. chirp! chirp! Chick army assemble!
Let's get out of this crazy space ship!
Open the big door and go outside.
YOU WIN! Click on the brave chicks to make them float around, just for fun.
