Tick-Tock Boom Escape Room Game : Escape the Room – Limited Time

Since I’m an avid fan of puzzle game, I’m very happy to review one. Actually, most of the ‘escape room’ games I’ve ever played usually have similar concept and features, but this game, Escape the Room : Limited Time by Gameday Inc., is a great game among all. This game’s concept is actually pretty similar like any other escape room games, but the storyline and additional feature is pretty interesting.

As describe above in the picture, the story is thrilling and I’ll tell you why later. Escape the Room : Limited Time takes place in an unknown area while taking role of Hyunbin who was being kidnapped into this strange place. His body is injected with time bomb that will explode. Anyway, your main task is simply escaping that whatever-that-is place. By doing so and progressing throughout the game, you will find out a fact behind all of these things you’re facing.

The how-to-play is actually pretty simple, the logic isn’t, hahaha. You only need to find clue by tapping items that you think is usable or responsive to some actions. By doing so, the easiest way is by tapping literally everything in your screen, instead of specifically guessing what items are interactable (I hope this is a word, though, since the web is giving me a spell checker red underline). By doing so, you can find some useful items to move on to the next rooms. The thrilling part in Escape the Room : Limited Time is since a time bomb is installed inside Hyunbin’s body and cannot be taken off, your time in solving puzzle is time-limited. The bomb will explode if you can’t solve the puzzle in a set amount of time, so if he’s dead, it’s your fault, take it. :D.

Escape the Room : Limited Time is, in my opinion, the best puzzle game I’ve ever played. The storyline is interesting with each characters relationships, ultimate story behind all of this, and the mystery concealed in the puzzle and story. The puzzles are very challenging especially some of the last parts. You need to use quite massive amount of logic since the puzzles aren’t that easy to solve. The user interface is quite different than some other escape room games especially with tools provided for you to specifically move/examine/touch/see your inventory. It’s so well-made and detailed.

Guess I need to explore more games from this developer in case they made several similar games. Anyway, give like if you enjoy reading my post, give some words if you have ideas or opinions for me, game recommendations are also accepted (if my device can handle the game), and stay tuned for my next stories. I will also publish something new to boost my foodie reviews.

Very Detailed Reading-Only Game : Zombie Exodus

Lately I found a game (actually its successor) but it’s still at the 1st part and the developer is still working on it. This game is called Zombie Exodus : Save Haven. Upon playing the first part, my friend told me there’s another similar game, the previous installment called Zombie Exodus. This one has been fully developed and was a very interesting game. Hosted Games as the developer really nails their job at making such simple games with exciting experience for players.

If you play this game, you can count, maybe the amount of pictures in this game (excluding this game cover)

could be less than ten, really. Even those in-game pictures during stories are just basically sketches, rough sketches, just to make a simple image in players’ mind about what happened on Zombie Exodus universe. That cover artwork is pretty awesomely drawn, though. 😀

The gameplay is simple, you read and choose. Really, that simple. Like any other choose your own story games. Like this, as an example of one in-game screen..edpabgw

See, a minimalist tone isn’t it? Basically it’s just 95% texts. Zombie Exodus‘s selling point is its storyline. The story is very complex for ‘just’ a game. The creator (or storyline artists probably) really did their job amazingly at describing every situations in the game. They gave us extraordinarily detailed ‘images’ of the story. You will start at the same point but will have 9 different endings depends on how you progress throughout the story.

My own favorite thing here in Zombie Exodus is its character development, even with deeper feature in the next installment, Zombie Exodus : Safe Haven. In that last picture, it’s a screenshot of a scene where you can decide your own profession/job. In this game you can choose 1 among 5 and each might results in different endings. Then there’s the character status including strength, dexterity, intelligence, and charisma. Each could be developed through some ways inside the game and each would really matter in the story. For example, you could die in a battle with zombie only you’re lacking strength, meanwhile higher strength could easily kill zombie and carry more items. That kind of possibilities.

I won’t spoil too much story of this game, but inside you’ll encounter a lot of crossroads like rejecting/accepting new crew, recruiting people, killing someone/something, and so on. Each relationship with people are displayed and can affect your story. You can be hated or loved by people. You can even have boyfriend/girlfriend. Hah! That’s it! A little bit of romance inserted during zombie apocalypse :D.

Anyway, even 9 different ending possibilities are featured, I only tried 2. Too tired to get everything. First playthrough got a ‘so-so’ ending (IMO), and the second run got a quite interesting and a little bit sad ending (IMO as well). Overall, I love this game, specially the part that you can choose your own in-game fate hahaha. Looks like the developer also made some different themed games and I think I might try those. Last but not least, if you enjoy reading my entire story, give like below, and give some comments if you have any ideas/opinions. See you on the next stories!
