Weekday Escape N°160
Some games in this Weekday Escape are old, some games are new. All are good and enjoyable; and all are Halloween themed. The newest game by Ichima takes you to a nice living room room with a bit disturbing atmosphere. Then you have to escape another little scary room in Amajeto's game and after you are out, Funkyland takes you to a candy shop, regrettably not for shopping. Atmospheric Esklavos wants you to fight Evil and finally you have to find many puzzle pieces in cute Yuri's game.
Have a good time and enjoy!
Before you start playing, look carefully at the first screen of Ichima's game and notice important information about gameplay (I didn't and was stuck). You can also switch between English and Japanese there with right lower button ("System"). The room you enter seems tidy and overall pleasant, but vague feeling of "something is not right" is in the air. Why is it so? Is it the coffin rumbling in the corner? The thick cobweb above it? Dirty mirror? I won't tell you...find out by yourself!
The cursor is not changing, autosave, one ending.
The game is available for Android too.
Someone left a skeleton lying in Amajeto's typical living room. The skeleton misses some parts and in it's jaws firmly holds the most important tool of all escapes, a screwdriver. Few blackbirds (imagine rooks or ravens to keep the atmosphere magical) are watching you with their little eyes, the pumpkin on puzzle picture is obviously the worst kind, completely wicked, and the scarecrow is significantly blinking - how is one supposed to focus on puzzles? On the other side, you have to manage somehow if you want to leave...by the way, the blackbirds stay where they are, don't worry.
The cursor is changing (its color), no save button, one ending.
The whole interior of little Funkyland's candy shop is inspired by Halloween, even tiled floor and wall papers are in right colors. Everything is polished, shelves full, piles of candies everywhere, the shop is just before opening (well, in fact it's closed today and staff are busily redecorating the shop to Christmas design, but let's lay it aside) and you are the one who is supposed to let customers in! Mr. Frog is peeping through small window in his coffin, can you help him out and get the key from him? And don't be afraid of his tiny fangs, I'm sure it's Halloween costume...or at least I hope so.
The cursor is not changing, save button, one ending.
Four years ago you had to fight a beautiful but cold and soulless sorceress in Magic Halloween Escape by Esklavos, posted in Link Dump Friday №344 and you did, bravely. But she was tougher than you thought! And she is back! Angry! Ready to attack! Can you get rid of her for good? The main strenght of the game is its atmosphere, dark and magic, fires flickening in the night, glowing wolf eyes and sinister pumpkins sneakily watching you. What you need is good observation, some clues or items are not obvious. But you can do it, evil must be defeated!
The cursor is changing, no save button, one ending.
Small game by Yuri with merry ghost and cute c̶h̶i̶c̶k̶s̶ pumpkins comes to finish the Halloween Special. In upper right corner of the gamescreen is hidden a puzzle with twenty missing pieces and after finding all of them the puzzle reveals final code for exit door. Puzzle pieces are everywhere, some transparent and denying the laws of physics, some are visible only after you zoom the scene. Can you find all of them? Even the last one?
The cursor is not changing, no save button, one ending.
