Weekday Escape N°313
Hello, Weekday Escape just arrived!
TomoLaSiDo's latest game is mostly about numbers and playing with them, and clever puzzles with a twist require unusual thinking. The same can be said about short and atmospheric escape by kurosan - to figure out their hints isn's easy. Esklavos is back after several years with a new escape as we were used to - yay - and it feels so good to play it. There are two bonuses this week, by Dassyutu and Akatsuki no Yado, the first one with a bit confusing controls and the second one with a language barrier.
Have a good time and enjoy!
Puzzles in the latest tomoLaSiDo may seem a bit difficult and while feeling stuck you might overthink them. What's important is to try to look at hints from another angle - yes, the thinking outside the box approach. It's easier to say than do, though, but you were warned! You need to find four sheets with numbers and for the perfect ending the fifth one.
The cursor isn't changing, no save option, one ending.
Kurosan's game isn't standard escape at all. You need to figure out several four digit codes and open several doors so technically yes, but there aren't any items to be found or combined. The most unusual part is discovering codes which can be anywhere at your monitor, outside the game screen too. Though the game is a bit clumsy and controlled by arrow keys it definitely worth playing!
Controlled by arrow keys and a mouse, no save option, one impressive ending.
After five years Esklavos is back with a new game, yay!!! Hand drawn art is gone, the familiar soundtrack as well - but puzzles haven't changed a bit and the controls are much easier than in their flash games.
Where the inspiration for this one came from is obvious. The game's title, the tune and theme pay tibute to Monkey Island series, only Guy Threepwood is missing, but during playing the game turns into typical Esklavos and remained basically unchanged. It's Esklavos as we knew them.
The cursor is changing, autosave, one ending.
