Weekday Escape N°274 - Halloween Special 4
Hi everybody, this is Halloween Special Weekday Escape 4!
BOO! Yep, it's this time of a year again and yep, the whole year is almost over, already! This is the fourth Halloween Edition and as in previous specials, all games are more or less focused on Halloween theme. The first comes Amajeto with their luxurious hotel with non-functional lift. Then you find yourself in Detarame Factory's apartment locked up together with several cats and from some reasons, cats are prominent feature of this WE. In retro Esklavos's you need to get rid of the spell casted on your cat, and in Chizu's game you deal with the whole pack of cats. Inconspicuous game by Springman Haruoroom turns out to be quite long and funny, and the last comes Nicolet. Yay! No escapist needs to introduce their games, right? We got another awesome game from them. At the end you find two bonus games, by Yuri and by Minoto. Happy playing and happy Halloween!
Have a good time and enjoy!
Amajeto trapped you in a hotel room and even if you succeed and find the right key, you haven't won yet. You need to escape a hotel corridor, too, not just your room, where the hotel lift apparently doesn't work properly. Other hotel guests - if there are any staying on your floor - won't help and so you're on your own in a hunt for missing lift button. Can you find it?

In Detarame Factory's game you meet a kitten or two in every scene, and one cuter than the other, all wearing those tiny Halloween costumes. Authors certainly know how to create a visually attractive and fluent game but not an oversimplified one. The game is bigger than seems and offers a good solid portion of clever puzzles. Very playable!

P.S. Here is a loose prequel: Nightmare Escape (Detarame Factory). Much fun too.
Your goal in Esklavos' game is to turn your cat alive. Well, it had been alive, originally, but then the evil witch came and turned it into a stone! Whether the reason was pure hatred or felinophobia we don't know but it doesn't make a difference - you want your cat back. Luckily, you get into the witch's place while she's out and after a brief survey of books you find the correct spell in one of those. Can you get all ingrediences?

Lovely game by Chizu is easily playable without the slightest knowledge of Japanese. It doesn't seem so since all the kitties you meet do wish to tell you something and you don't know what! Well, click away the dialogues and play - you aren't missing any crucial hint by doing so and clues are quite obvious (if you think about them long enough). Just one thing. One item, pale blue rectangle, is not a mirror or a sheet of glass as I thought; it's an empty cellophane sack.

Original Springman Haruoroom's room brings much more fun than it seems. New windows and hidden compartments emerge from empty walls by a charm, new areas to explore are being opened, and puzzles often surprise you by their wit and freshness. In order to set magical actions in motion the correct code has to be entered or the right item used - the small helpful ghost appears then and conjures a window or so up. Clever. Can you get your hat and catch the Halloween feast?

The game is available for Android too.
Nicolet invites you to a moles' house into the middle of preparations for Halloween. Suddenly, the doorbell rang and the first neighbour in a costume comes in with very specific idea of the candy he hopes for. You need to help your host to find it and solve few puzzle during the search. After the satisfied trick-or-treater leaves and gives you something in return, the doorbell rings again and the whole proccess repeats. Oh well. The moles from some reason hid treats at quite unexpected places. Will you make happy all the visitors?
