It's another bee-yootiful Wednesday here at JayisGames. The sun is shining and the birds are singing... I mean, presumably. By the time this article goes live, I will be snug asleep in bed, dreaming the confused hodge-podge of dinosaurs, Borderlands references, and food that make up my subconscious. But you? It's game time! This week! Vitamin Hana needs you help freeing a new batch of animals, but should we break the locks? Nagamochi Games gives you somewhere cute to chill, but you'll need to find some puzzle pieces if you want to leave. And Esklavos sends you after a queen who has set out (unwisely?) to give a dragon what-for.
Free the Monkeys! - I dunno, Vitamin Hana. Sure, figuring out how to release hapless captured monkeys (maybe so they can GO Happy?) sounds like a harmless idea, but I'm Canadian. The Kids in the Hall have been warning me about this my whole life. But, well, if you can't trust someone who regularly locks you inside small, confined spaces for their own amusement, who can you trust? Set those simians free!
The Queen and the Dragon - Esklavos sends you off on a quest to find a queen who went off to stop a dragon, but hasn't yet returned. Have you seen the way medieval queens dress? She's probably fine and got her bustle caught in a tree or something. Regardless, it's up to you to reconstruct the map and find out where she is and bring her back, preferably un-toasted. You know how queens do. All preferring to be alive and whatnot.
Little Room Escape 4 - Nagamochi Games may have you locked up somewhere, but at least it's pretty darn twee. It's like being inside a cupcake, all bright colours and cute decorations, though the cupcakes I've made typically don't come with strange puzzles and mechanisms. If you want to leave, you'll have to find five puzzle pieces hidden throughout the place, which may be easier said than done given how wonky some of the navigation is, but hey, nobody said escape games were easy!
