Weekday Escape N°175
Colorful and joyful game by Maymay is warm-up only - Masa, on the other hand, tests your escaping skills, observation and deduction thoroughly, and if you were ever wondering how do tent manufacturers test water resistance of their products, you'll learn now. The last entry in this Weekday Escape is by no1game and Wanpa; and brings very well-done game (more adventure than escape) with few rooms to explore...that's good concept, if you get stuck in one room, you can go elsewhere and not brood over one puzzle and overthink it.
Have a good time and enjoy!
This time, Maymay suprisingly doesn't want you to fix anything - you have to find five umbrellas to escape, or precisely, to get the last clue. And do a bit of cleaning while hunting for clues. It's simple game with three game screens and three doors to get through - in the end you get important advice from the designers: "Don't forget to bring your umbrella, be safe!". But they don't let you keep even one of found umbrellas!

Three weeks ago, I complained that Masa's games are very rare - well, what do you know! POP - a new one immediately arrived! That was pretty quick - I should try that more often!
So, you find yourself locked inside a room which purpose seems to be testing camping equipment. There is a tent, fireplace and bike; and two flower pots with plastic plants trying to create illusion of nature (not very successfully). Puzzles and hints are around too, but solutions are not simple; you need to combine more hints to get somewhere - can you get out? And can you get out twice?

The game is available for Android too.
Not many designers created such an amount of great games as no1game; there are more than 180 now! Sometimes, they collaborate with other japanese designers - e.g. Find the Escape Men in WE N°132 - or remarkably change their style (Marble Escape in WE N°125). This game is a crossover between no1game and Wanpa; and it's also a crossover between escape and adventure genre with action element at the end.
At the starting screen you are asked to choose a language (English or Japanese), then follows an opening with short story explaining Wanpa's presence in no1game's universe.
Afterwards you end up in some enclosure and, needless to say, you have to collect ten escape men. But that's not all this time...you have to escape the place too...and fight!
