    BASED ON COMPLETED GAME

    Let’s see... Monochromatic distorted images, check. Static scenes with a little interactivity, check. Boring game formula of 25 levels with each HO scene visited 3 times and 1 very easy puzzle at the end of each level, check.

    Ah, yes, we have another game in the Escape series!

    If your thing is PURE HO with at most a few EASY PUZZLES and only a hollow shell of a STORY (and I’m not denying the place of such games, not everyone wants to be dragged through a mental ringer), then this game might appeal to you.

    But you could do better. I’m no fan of the Big City Adventures or Amazing Adventures series, but they are both more appealing than this one, which offers you little in the way of eye candy, no personality, nothing but drudgery really.

    Still interested, okay, well the good news is, this game has a timer, points for fast finding, and collectibles that unlock a free play mode.

    The puzzles, while easy (match 3, jigsaw, rotate tiles, word search), are still fun, and for me, the best part of the game.

    None of which is enough to sell me on a game that falls so far short on imagination and emotion.

    I Don't Recommend This Game!
