Weekday Escape N°204
Back to the roots of genre! Three escape games - by Maymay, Dasyutu and Maroya - are very classical and as close to the core as possible, just puzzles, codes, hints and clues. Graphics is basic, no music, only clicking sound here and there, and no story (almost). All three games are very well done though and definitely entertaining!
Neat Escape, on the other hand, is colorful, with polished graphics, pleasant music and a lot of adrenaline.
Have a good time and enjoy!
Maymay wants you to find five yellow tennis balls hidden in three rooms. You can see only one wall from each room, but there is enough locked cupboards and boxes for the whole apartement! Just look for clues and hints, solve few puzzles, open three doors and you are out and can go play tennis with your friends. Or skip tennis and go play more escape games.
The cursor is not changing, no save button, one ending.
Dasyutu keeps supplying us with new and quality games in quick sequence and this one is, again, very well done. Setting is usual, a room with two locked doors, many hints around and a big TV set providing hints, obviously keeping up with your actions. Mostly it's looking for ingrediences as your final task is to cook hot pot.

Few years ago, Maroya created several cute escape games - Marshmellow's New Home 3, 4, 5, 6 - with simple and clean graphics and clever and fresh puzzles. They are back! Their kittens have moved to a new address so this game is hopefully the start of another serie. The graphics hasn't changed, kittens are still lovely and puzzles are good - just follow your changing cursor as few hotspots are well hidden. Intro in Japanese is skippable and you don't need to know what it says. The starting gamescreen seems inactive - red arrows on its sides aren't responding - yet there is something what can be done here. Later you can move around freely.

You are trapped Neat Escape's room, in front of you is a table with a bomb and you need to disable it. Not much to do around the room, your goal is to figure out mechanism of the bomb step by step and dismantle it. Every wrong action leads to abrupt end (sharply interrupted scream and blood stains on monitor). Luckily you aren't under pressure as there isn't any countdown timer and you have enough time for thinking about puzzles' solutions. Will you escape i̶n̶ ̶o̶n̶e̶ ̶p̶i̶e̶c̶e̶ after all?
The cursor is not changing, autosave plus save button, one good ending and numerous bad - depends on your pyrotechnic skills.
The game is available for Android too.
