It's funny, the human palate. Some days you might wish to be presented with the most exquisite dishes imaginable, medleys of tastes and textures refined and elevated into works of art. After a while, however, it just becomes too much, and it's more appealing to just flop down in front of the television with a bag of potato chips, maybe an extra-cheesy pizza for good measure (mmm).
And really, that's what this delectable duo is: delicious, unpretentious, snack-sized games just bursting with escapey goodness. Are they remarkable? Not really. Satisfying? Absolutely. And as a plus, they won't leave grease stains on your couch.
- Retro Room - I really liked this game. The puzzles are nicely modulated to be thought-provoking but not headache-inducing, challenging but not maddening. The perfect escape for a coffee break: easy enough to be finished quickly, interesting enough to engage (and perhaps revive?) the mind.
- Lab Escape - Worry not about secret codes or enigmatic messages; Lab Escape simply requires you to take stock of your surroundings and act accordingly. This isn't a bad thing, however; it's kinda nice to take a break from more fantastical situations.
