Weekday Escape

elleHere in the Weekday Escape studios, things tend to be rather heavily biased toward free online escape games. Which is great: What's not to love about being able to turn on your computer, open your browser, and plug into fun puzzles all centered on the concept of escaping from your confinement? There's not only enjoyment in the actual mental stimulation, there is immense satisfaction in the symbolic escape from your surroundings. So this week, besides living up to expectations and presenting three typical escape games—brought to you by Hottategoya, No1Game and FunkyLand—I thought I'd break out of the mold and suggest a few things different. After all, if it's been a while since you've dug through the JayIsGames archives, perhaps this week's featured trio will be the inspiration to get you started...

Escape from the Similar Rooms 18Escape from the Similar Rooms 18 - In yet another entry in the escape multiple-like-looking-rooms series, Hottategoya returns to the one puzzle per room format, leaving you stuck in each room until you can piece together the clues and solve your way through the door leading to the next room. Some animations make a pen and notepad come in very handy. Yet the logic used is solid, nothing too abstruse, while the aesthetics, albeit rather basic and white, are soothing and pleasing to the eye. And if you're enjoying this multiple-doors-to-get-open thing, you should also try 58 Works' DOOORS games, such as DOOORS 4.

Find the Escape-Men 135: A Typical Escape Game 3Find the Escape-Men 135: A Typical Escape Game 3 - from No1Game starts out in the quintessential escape game way: you wake up, lump on head, in a strange environment, unsure how you got there. There's no other story or reason to why you must do this but, if you're going to get anywhere, you need to collect ten escape-men. Since the object of the game focuses on finding, much of the gameplay is about the search: clicking on and examining every angle and object in each scene. Once clues are found, simple calculations result in needed solutions. No, it's not the most original or inspired entry in the Escape-Men series. Just typical. That doesn't mean it isn't good for whiling away a few minutes of break time. And for those of us who can't get enough hide-and-seek in our days, it's always good to have Little Things Forever nearby.

Fruit Kitchens No.16: Banana YellowFruit Kitchens No.16: Banana Yellow - The premise here is this: you're stuck in this funky yellow kitchen and, to unlock the door and exit, you must find and collect seven pieces of fruit. This is done quickly enough by searching every detail of the scene and solving a few simple puzzles. It has perhaps come to the point that FunkyLand and whimsical are synonymous. Perhaps to the point that they've gone bananas with whimsy-superfluity! And if you don't know what I mean, expose yourself to more such things as whimsy, kitsch, and funk by trying Little Gardens or This Way Up.

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.

Major Hints for Escape from Similar Room 18:

1st room:

The colors on the tv match the colors found on the door...maybe it holds the clue

2nd room:

The black spots on the paper clue are the same amount as what's needed for the door. Now what could those black spots represent to link the numbers together?

3rd room:

When clicking the white switches, something in the room changes. That and the other clue found should provide the answer

Thought I'd list the Escape Men locations

#1

Tree scene: Behand the left moveable tuft of grass

#2

Table scene: Under the lowest sake bottle

#3

Balcony scene: In the upper sky scene, throw the STONE at the EM's balloons then look at the balcony

#4

Cooler scene: Pick up the only uncrushed BEER CAN and click on it in your inventory until the EM comes out

#5

Cooler scene: Look at the RECEIPT to figure out the cooler code

2 x6, 6 x3, 10 x2 and 7 x1 OR
12
18
20
07

The EM is under the darkened flap

#6

Tree scene: Solve the tree code

BSWG

and pick up the GONG

#7

Balcony scene: Use the ICE BLOCK on the carpet, leave, then come back. Click on the protrusion

#8

Balcony scene: Right after #7, leave and come back to see the ICE BLOCK has melted

#9

Cooler scene: Check the right-side shoe

#10

Table scene: Use the GONG on the table then use the MALLET from the upper part of the tree scene on the GONG

Got thru Fruit Kitchen with almost no help! Just had to be reminded that one of the 1st clues I found existed. I'd forgotten about:

The "+25" on the red plate.

I'm really stuck on EM though. I figured out the

tree code

and got the

gong, I put the gong down but don't know how to sound it;
receipt
rock

I'm assuming

the receipt has something to do with the other code, but I can't figure it out. I've tried every combo I can think of.

I currently have 4 EM, all but 1 of which came from non-code-access locations.

@Leopardmask I'm stuck with 9... Why is there two digits for each item for the code you are stuck on? ...It doesn't have to do with counting the beer cans and stuff strewn about.

Not sure how to turn on the TV. =\

@jswzz - For your last EM, you need to

investigate an item in your inventory to get another item

Once you get that, you need to

do some simple math...

Still stuck?

multiply the number of each beverage by its price and enter each number under the appropriate bottle

Hey, Elle ... I for one, DO spend time in the JIG archives. Too much time ... :)

If you click on any "point-and-click" or "escape" tag, 17-odd pages of games come up, going back about a decade.

I have spent more hours than I care to confess trawling through the archives!

Thanks for this week's round-up, as well as 3 from the archives!

If you're like me, and you're stuck in the first room of Escape from the Similar Rooms 18

Look more carefully in the room with the sofa

In the drawer of one of the end tables (*smacks forehead*, that's escape games 101 to check all furniture for drawers)

@Gabe on EM #4, how many times do I have to...

click on the uncrushed beer can? Do I have to be in a certain scene? Do I have to have the beer can showing enlarged along with the CLOSE button?

HELP. I have nine EM and just need this one to finish.
