Weekday Escape

elleIt's the night before Christmas and we here at JayIsGames want to wish you merry merriment and festive festivities, whatever you might be doing. If you're here, though, that means you're playing more free online escape games. As well you should, being what a cold night it is in Yonashi's whimsical world. But, thanks to Flash512, Santa brought you a gift, and it's a nice gift, but only the most clever can get through the jolly one's test and leave with it. After that, help little Northan get into Jenny's house: she'll only let you in if you can solve all the puzzles because, well, that's what friends do for holiday fun...

One Cold NightOne Cold Night - Yonashi brings all the charm and whimsy you could want for your Christmas fun in this mini escape. You're stuck inside, you want to get outside, which means following the changing cursor to find active spots and solving the riddles you encounter. You'll rely mostly on inference to figure out what you're supposed to do, yet the clues are more than abundant even if there's not a lot of explanation, besides magic for why things work as they do. Being on the easy side, all the enjoyment comes from the cuteness factor: which is ramped up to high along with plenty of holiday spirit.

Warm Christmas Room EscapeWarm Christmas Room Escape - This is an older title by Flash512, not quite as polished and flashy as the author's newer titles, but it's perfect for the getting into the Christmas mood, with Santa Claus and a pretty tree all decked out with ornaments. There's a few instances where you might get hung up. One is if you forget that you must click, hold and drag items from your inventory to use on screen. Another is when you find yourself on a pixel hunt for important clue or items. Lastly, some clues seem like they could work on more than one lock, so you'll need to narrow it down. Otherwise, the solutions are straight-forward enough that you should be out the door, your loot in hand, well before Santa knows whether you've been naughty or nice.

Northan's Christmas 2014Northan's Christmas 2014 - The simple graphics and unusual navigation might not grab your attention, but give it a few moments and you'll soon find yourself enjoying this little escape "into" the room from Shuinvy. It has more than its fair share of cheerfulness and personality to bring a smile. Once you're able to keep track of each scene, gathering useful tools (accessed via a click to open the "ITEM" box in the lower left corner) and solving the puzzles should be a snap. There's just enough thinking involved to keep you engaged, but it's light enough to complete with feet up by the fire, cup of cocoa in one hand, while singing your favorite carols.

We love escape games, and our readers love talking about them and sharing hints! How about you? Let us know what you think, ask for clues, or help out other players in the comments below.

Walkthrough Guide


(Please allow page to fully load for spoiler tags to be functional.)

One Cold Night walkthrough

Exploration, and gathering of some items

In the first scene, we see a stove. To open it, we'll need to solve a puzzle with three shapes and colours.

There's some strawberries (?) and a fish hanging to the left of the stove. We want that fish, but we can't get it yet.

There's a bucket of water with a key in it, but the water is frozen.

Turning right, we see a window. To open it, we'll need to solve a left-right puzzle.

There's a chest, but it needs a key.

There's a door, with a locked box on it.

In the bottom left, there's a table with some letter cookies. Clicking on the cookie box gets us a B cookie. If we look more closely at the B, and click it, it turns into two D COOKIES. Yay!

Look at that plate of cookies.

Those look like eyes, but the mouth is missing.

Put one of the D COOKIES on the plate to complete the smiley face.

Leaving the table scene and turning right again, we see a big smiley face and some firewood. If we click the firewood, we get a MATCH BOX.

There is a snowman. The branch that is the snowman's arm has some twigs going left and right.

Hey, that's probably the solution for the left-right puzzle.

Let's go back to the window and try: L R R L R R. Nope. Well, that was too good to be true.

Solving puzzles

Stove

If we look closely at the MATCH BOX, there's some coloured shapes there. A green triangle, red circle, and blue square. Where have we seen those shapes?

We can open the stove. For the colour-blind, click the circle twice to make it red. Click the triangle three times to make it green. Click the square once to make it blue.

There's already some wood in the stove. Let's light it with the MATCH BOX (hmm, those seem like dangerous matches if we can light the stove without even opening the box).

Lighting the stove has melted the water in the bucket. We can take the KEY.

If we go left, we can see that the snowman isn't looking too good in this heat ..

We can use the key on the chest.

There's a word missing a letter.

We can use our D LETTER.

There's a BOTTLE of purple liquid. Above the bottle, there's a picture of a flame and the word "Fire".

There's fire in the stove. Throw the bottle in the fire to get a nice explosion.

Aw, the explosion has also finished off the snowman. But look!

There are more twigs on the branch. L R R - L R R - R L L. Let's try the window again.

Nope. That doesn't work.

Let's let go of our top-to-bottom mentality, and try the reverse order

L L R - R R L - R R L

.

There's a KEY under one of the glasses.

Hmm, why are some of the glasses not standing upright? Let's remember that the first glass is upsidedown and the third glass is on its side.

We can get the FISH now with our new KEY. But there doesn't seem to be anything we can do with the fish.

Let's have another look at the cookie table. There's a squirrel eating the D cookie.

Click on the squirrel and get the KEY and the RIBBON. Look closely at the ribbon. It says MIZTER. Hmm.

Opening the door

We use the KEY on the box on the door and there's a new puzzle with a 6-letter word. Ew, it's the kind where we have to click a zillion times ...

We have a 6-letter sort-of-word, MIZTER. Let's try that. (Grumble, if only there were up-down buttons, it would be easy to get that Z.)

Nope, not surprisingly, MIZTER doesn't work. But wait, remember the glasses?

Turn the M upsidedown to get W and turn the Z over to get N.

WINTER. That's better.

Inside the second room

There's a present on the table. But we can't open it until we solve a shape puzzle.

There's a bear. Maybe it would like a fish. Yes indeed. Take the SHAPE he's offering.

We can place the shape in the puzzle that opens the present.

Now we have a new puzzle. Some shapes on the left, some letters on the right.

The bear is holding a sign that has a 90 degrees left image.

If we assume that it's the puzzle that's turned 90 degrees left, we can make another smiley face. Not a winky one, but a real smiley :D

It's a cake! Click on the cake ...

And we're outside.

There's the Christmas tree, bear, the squirrel, a rabbit, some deer, and there's the snowman. Yay, he didn't completely melt, he must have just left.

There's another present! And the real end scene.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Found the matches, opened the stove, lit the fire,got the key, opened the box and.... stuck !

Put the

bottle with purple liquid in the fire.

It will

explode and melt the snowman.

When the snowman is

melted, there is a whole stick with little twigs on it. I think it has something to do with the buttons on the window, but I can't seem to figure out the code.

After you

Use the potion on the fire

you can

go back to the table where you got the B cookie, use the other half on the face. turn around a couple of times, go back to the table and a creature will be eating the cookie. he has a key on his tail.

Reply

The

rabbit will give you a ribbon.

There´s something written

on the back of it.

I wonder how to use the

letters, though. They don't go directly on the mailbox.

Reply

Aha!
Some of the

letters

need to be

put on their side

Thanks for that Hes. That has to be one of the weirdest puzzles I've seen yet.

@ Hespetre

For the

twigs

you have to go

up the twig, not down, for the left/right buttons pattern.

Reply

Thank you, I thought I had tried that, but maybe too early in the game?

These were the perfect start to Christmas Eve!

I especially liked the typewriter sound effect when entering the letters on the door in One Cold Night. Brought back good memories. Also, the singing angels in Northan's Christmas 2014 were brilliant!

Thanks elle, and Happy Holidays to all my JIG brethren and sistren!!!

For the letter puzzle in One Cold Night,

I think the clue is the orientation of the glasses in the twig/two button cabinet.

Reply

For Northan's Christmas 2014...

what do you do with the angels? I see you can move them around the screen, and they must have something to do with the "xylophone stands" of the same numbers/colors on a different screen that you can hit with the mallet...

any help?

Reply

Okay, I feel really dumb, but where is the purple potion in One Cold Night?

Reply

Purple potion in One Cold Night is -- oy, where was it... I think it was in the cabinet with the glasses or one of the locked boxes...

Reply

Thanks, like always I gave up too quickly! That was a cute little adventure.

looking forward to walkthroughs :)

Stuck in Warm Christmas Room:

Can't figure out either numerical code:

The stepstool has something to do with the numbers on top of the dresser, perhaps combined with the clock?

and I have no idea yet for the 3-number drawer.

korvarthefox December 24, 2014 11:28 AM replied to baileydonk

@baileydonk:

The number you get from the clock (still haven't worked out how you're supposed to get it, I just prod the thing until it works) plus the number on top of the chest of drawers is the code for the footstool.

Still haven't worked out the code on the chest of drawers, although the numbers do go up to 12 (Spinal Tap would approve)

Reply

I am also stuck on the warm room. Found the footstool number, but can't find the number for chest of drawers.

Also, I have

a knife and a ribbon which is "too long for the tree" but it wont let me cut it?

Reply

jayisgamed, you should have another cutting implement.

jayisgamed December 24, 2014 12:59 PM replied to baileydonk

Thanks, I just found it LOL. But still can't figure the number on the chest of drawers.

baileydonk December 24, 2014 1:02 PM

I'm stuck on Warm Christmas Room, probably right near the end, with

the opened stepstool, a pair of scissors, and no clue for the dresser code.

. I'm wondering what else I need the stepstool for, since it's still clickable.

Reply
jayisgamed December 24, 2014 1:03 PM replied to baileydonk

You can

put the stepstool to the right of the tree. After that I'm not sure what else.

Reply
jayisgamed December 24, 2014 1:04 PM replied to baileydonk

It lets you reach something

Reply

@ColleenWerthmann For the angels:

Drag them into numerical order from 1 to 5. They'll sing for you, and you have to note down the order they sing in and hit the coloured blocks in that same order. It's a long song, so if you need to hear it again press the red angel.

Reply
baileydonk December 24, 2014 1:45 PM

I've about had it with Warm Christmas Room and that 3 number code.

The fact that the numbers go to twelve seems like a good hint, but I've tried everything I can think of...

Reply
jayisgamed December 24, 2014 2:17 PM replied to baileydonk

@baileydonk, Have you seen the hotspot near where you found the cutting instrument?

Reply
baileydonk December 24, 2014 2:25 PM

Aaaargh! jayisgamed, thanks, now I have a sort of clue, but it changes every time I go back to it, and what at first seemed to make sense does not work. I'm going to poke my eyes out with a screwdriver.

jayisgamed December 24, 2014 2:36 PM

@Baileydonk

Found a walkthrough: http://www.gameso.com/walkthrough/warm-christmas-room-escape.htm

Yes, I had the same problem. I think it starts to repeat after a while though. It's really strange. To get the code:


Put them in decreasing order.

It's not very logical to me :P

interesting...
Why Tomatea last game isn't on your facebook or twitter?
Is there something we don't know?

although mostly like text walkthroughs I tried it abd it was cool. thanks jayisgamed.

What to do with the snowman in Northans? I've decorated the tree with a star and two ornaments, as well as a present, but not sure what to do now.

Reply

Never mind, guess I needed to post the question before the answer came to me.

Reply

The 3 box code at the bottom of the chest of drawers is:

11 7 3.
These numbers are found behind the Santa. (Click on the Santa, get the scissors, then click on the up arrow. Read the dial where it turns yellow.)

The code for the footstool is:


3237. To get this code, click on the clock eyes until the number 2012 lights up. Add 2012 to the 1225 found on the top of the chest of drawers. You get 3237. (Not very intuitive is it?)

Reply

Gah! I kept forgetting that I had to drag the items in Warm Christmas Room. I think I clicked that lid about 50 times with every item I had.

Reply

Same question as @username. I am stuck on the snowman in Northan's Christmas.
