This is the first in a series of escape mini-games I intended to make. Well, other things came up after finishing the first one so I'm releasing it for play. I'll return to these later this year.

PS- Be sure to explore EVERYWHERE

Too illogical at times


Why does the electronic keypad to get into the trunk work BEFORE the key turns on the car's electricity?

Why is the electricty required to pop the trunk (isn't this a purely mechanical function)?

Beyond those two things, I never would have gotten "E40" without the walkthrough -- Eiher there wasn't enough emphasis on the "40," or the eectronic keypad should have had some indication of how many digits to input, etc.

The game could also be improve by adding a negative response, like text at the bottom of the screen saying "That won't work," or "Try something else" in case you say, try using the screwdriver on the ignition switch.

Graphics were decent, though some parts were difficult to decipher (back side of center console, for example). Maybe starting with taking photos inside of your own car would provide good reference.

Some story-line would have really helped the mood, too.

Keep at it, this is my favorite genre of flash games, and I hope to see more from you!

-The keypad was self-powered ;)
-The trunk release is actually an electrical function in a lot of cars. For example my 1992 cutlass, where I got the idea from
-I didn't think the E40 was too obscure, after all those are the only numbers you see in the car

not perfect YET!

Some people would call me harsh but i think with the level of skill on newgrounds.that i grade each flash equally.this was almost perfect but you had some minor mistakes now i know you said that there wont be story line see that dosent make me wanna come back for you know each game like the blood you could do alot and maybe make it the best show on new grounds if you wrote and certin parts were better.Like it took me a long time to use the duct the ductape really didn't work that well.and i also like to see maybe a ranking system of some type just you know like 1 to 2 minutes great 2 to 4 medicore.Cause i mean it took me ten minutes to beat it but mainly because of the whole ductape didn't work.So a yeah i think this works at like an eight i don't know if it will be great because this the first one but i think it could get better cause with killing spree it started so good and then it went down from there.i think this starts on a good level so theres room for you know it to get better kind unlike killing spree so yeah you could become a legend if you continue this make it a little beter and just dont do what the guy who created the negitaor that was and wrong so yeah you could become one of the great flash makers just needs a little work.and a the stratgey guide was kind of bad no offense it really didn't tell you what wires to use the ductape and a yeah good game.

Enjoyable with a general complaint

The one problem I usually have with this click games is the departure from rationale.

<spoiler warning>


1. why the lock combination should be related to the instrument panel in that particular fashion would be utter coincidence and not something anyone would look for when trying to escape. A more plausible example might be to leave a drivers license hidden somewhere and have the birthday be the combination (i.e. a common number series people use as passcodes)

2. wiring diagram hidden in cieling. Just wierd! Also slightly disturbing that not every cut wire should be spliced back together. A wiring diagram would make more sense if there were color connections to make like blue to red for example.

I liked the feel of the game and enjoyed figuring out the parts I did. I'm sure a more thorough and patient clicker would have puzzled out the parts I gave up on.

People find this review helpful!

Nice, but there should be more clues.

I liked the game a lot, but the only problem I had was that (as far as I could tell) there were no clues as to how the wires should be connected. I did most of it by myself, but I had to go to the walkthrough to find out how I was supposed to connect the wires.

I think that you shouldn't have to guess in these games, because then you're not figuring out how to do something, you're just clicking things until it works.

there's a wire guide hidden in the car's ceiling
