- • Candy Rooms No.17: Purple Girly
- • Scary Dungeon Escape
- • Escape from the Similar Rooms 14
With Halloween around the corner from Weekday Escape, it's time for something a little bit scary, a lot of walking around, and a handful of candy to make it all the more fun. That's where these three escapes from Selfdefiant, Hottategoya and FunkyLand come in. No Elsa or Olaf costumes needed: just use your wits and tackle a few puzzles.
- • Bonneville
- • Yellow Walls Escape
- • Escape from the Japanese Style Hotel
Neatescape, Yomino Kagura, and no1game walk into your browser... there's no punchline, it's just another installment of Weekday Escape! This week, you've got two rooms with a view and a whole pack of puzzles ready to be picked (or clicked) apart.
- • Yuk Escape 2
- • Frog Lake Escape
- • Fresh Bathroom Escape
We have three fresh, fun and a little bit tricky escape games from Kamokichi, Sanpoman, and Flash512 for your weekday escape enjoyment this week. I think you'll like them. Enough said.
- • Fruit Kitchens No.11: Pineapple Yellow
- • Escape from the Strange Locker Room 2
- • Escape from the Room of Three Pictures
In the mood for something yellow, sweet, juicy and whimsical? Then step into FunkyLand's kitchen and indulge in the clever creativity of its design. The strangest thing about Hottategoya's locker room is how you keep getting locked up here, a room most remarkable for its three clever but quick puzzles. Yomino Kagura changes up the furnishings only slightly, but adds new puzzles to satisfy the fans.
Elle? She's... indisposed. But just because she's been, um, NOT kidnapped doesn't mean Weekday Escape doesn't have everything you need to get past Hump Day. Choko-Chai, Gotmail.jp, and Yamino Kagura serve up three escapes in three different flavours!
- • Candy Rooms No.15: Crimson Red Modern
- • Chicks Hide and Seek 20
- • Escape from the Room of the Alphabet Picture
When you need to getaway from it all, Weekday Escape is the place to go. This week FunkyLand is back with another gorgeously whimsical Candy Room, Yuri's adorable brood has played hide-and-seek with their school supplies, and Yomino Kagura brings another room full of puzzles, plain and simple.
- • Find the Escape-Men 117: Load Runner
- • Escape Another Nightmare
- • Cute Duckling 3
No1Game's latest episode continues the classic arcade game theme, this time with some morbid implications. Meanwhile, welcome Self Defiant to our weekday escape spotlight with another atmospheric asylum adventure. But if you need more smiles than that, Minoto should brighten your day with the cutest baby water fowl in the world!
- • Fruit Kitchens No.10: Grape Purple

Act now and you can impress your friends and wow your co-workers with your brilliant escape game skills and witty comments. And all you have to do is click "play".
- • Button Escape 20
- • Escape from the House with a View of the Sea
- • Escape from the Room of the Diamond Apparatus
Tototo Room, Neat Escape and Yomino Kagura are our featured game authors this week, bringing us a trio of ways to escape the mid-week doldrums. Although they each have their quirky sides, it's a straight-forward and quick endeavor, whether trying to find eleven buttons, solving your way out of a waterside suite or grappling with a diamond-topped device.
- • Candy Rooms 13: Black Modern
- • Button Escape 22
- • Find the Escape-Men 112: EM Express
As it turns out, with another quest for five sweet treats by FunkyLand, a search for ten green men from No1Game, and a game of hide-and-seek for eleven buttons in Tototo Room's single-walled scene, the theme for this week's selection of fun free escape games is: can you find it? Of course, there is no shortage of puzzles and quirky amusement to go along with your investigations. But we can chat about those details after you're done playing. Have fun!
Doodle Devil is here and, as promised, we have it here first! The sequel to the amazingly popular Doodle God is now out in a Flash version for all those without a smartphone. More Doodle God is never a bad thing, and even though Doodle Devil doesn't reinvent the alchemical wheel, there's still plenty to love. The series distills a very basic element found at the core of all video games: exploration and discovery.

When we made the announcement for our 2nd Flash Game Design Competition we said that additional prizes would be announced, and we weren't kidding. I have just confirmed with Adobe that not only are they going to sponsor this competition as they did our first one by offering two (2) Flash 8 Professional licenses to award to the top two games submitted, they will also upgrade those prizes to the Adobe Video Bundle if either winner has made good or innovative use of either Premiere Pro for video or After Effects for animation/video within their Flash game!
Wooty tooty flip-bam-booty! We hosted our 2nd Flash Game Design Competition! Yes, the type of entry we were looking for was the same as what we called for during our first competition. The simple puzzle idea proved to be an excellent choice, and we have over a dozen excellent games now to choose from. Congratulations to Sprout and Gateway II for taking home the prizes valued at over $2000!!
Adobe made available a beta version of FP9 for Linux systems a few days ago. It works pretty well with most of the flash games reviewed at your site (which often did not work with the highest version available for Linux - 7). I don't know how many of your visitors are using Linux OS but even if it is 1 out of 100 it could be nice to give them that info.
Somewhat because I feel compelled to, but also because I do so enjoy the music that I just want to share it with the world. Mixed Tape 14 is out, and just in time to help make the weekend that much cozier.
Alick over at Mousebreaker in the UK sends word of a Flash game development contest they are running now through the end of November. They are offering substantial cash prizes for the three (3) best games submitted. See their contest page for complete details.
The results are in from the recent Flash Forward Film Festival held in Austin, Texas, last week, and there are some exceptional items that simply should not be missed. In particular, be sure to check out the Bendito Machine, a stunning piece of work by producer, animator, and illustrator, Jossie Malis.
Today the wraps were taken off the remaining details regarding the launch of Nintendo's next console, Wii (pronounced "we"). Besides being available November 19th for a retail price of $249, what was even more interesting (at least to me) was word confirming that the Wii Opera Web browser would indeed support Adobe Flash(!)
Judging this competition has truly been a bittersweet experience for all of us here at JIG Casual Gameplay. Sweet because we have been graced with so many wonderfully creative and original puzzle games to play. Every last one of them deserves the usual treatment we like to give around here, so look forward to seeing each game highlighted and reviewed in the days and weeks ahead.
Today we are proud to announce the Audience Prize, to be awarded to the game designer of the competition entry that receives the most votes from the JIG community. This award will be a cash prize of at least $100(!)
The next batch of entries submitted to our competition are up and available to play! Thank you kindly for leaving your comments and constructive criticisms for each of the puzzles. There are just a few left that are giving me some trouble getting them to play well with my API. Hopefully the rest will be up before the end of the day so we can concentrate on figuring out who to award these prizes to. =)
The first batch of eight (8) entries submitted are up and available to play! I think I have all the bugs worked out of the UI. I've rushed to get this up, though, so please be kind with your bug reports.
Our first ever game design competition deadline is upon us, just a little less than 12 hours away, and already I am inundated with unbelievably good, fantastic puzzle designs to sort through and choose from. Picking the best of them will certainly not be easy. I am working feverishly hard to make sure that you are able to play each and every one of the finalists, and depending upon the quantity of any last minute submissions received, I will (hopefully) have something up and playable for you over the weekend, so be sure to check back if you are as excited as I am about it! =D
We hosted our first Flash game design competition, and what an amazing event it was! 21 creative and original puzzle games were submitted from all over the world, and just about any one of them could have walked away with one of the prizes. You simply must play every one of these games and experience the amazing quality present in each of the entries. Cheers to everyone that participated, either by submitting an entry or by playing the games submitted!
