WALKTHROUGH: /walkthroughs.php. For anyone curious on why this took so long to bring to NG, check out my latest user-page post

Escape #3, The Phonebooth. A little different from the others, focusing more on the phone itself than finding items. But don't worry, there's some of that too. Big thanks to Josh and Jason of KT-Records for hooking me up with an opening theme, and ending theme (Afro-Ninja theme song). Check out their stuff!

Rated 3 / 5 stars


I liked the minimalistic graphic style and the sound quality was really damn realistic, but what pissed me off was how stupid the gameplay was. It started out great but then got ridiculous.

Night5? How are we supposed to know that's a password? Sure it looks like a hint, but why would we find it there? That's pretty stupid. And why is Gush7 on the light? That makes no sense either! The only thing you find in those lamps are dead bugs... What a stupid gameplay quirk. I think it's also stupid you have to write down Arch as 2724, as multiple letters go to one number, meaning it would be more prudent if the telephone service rigged it up to some kind of street number. And then the words scrawled on the fountain. Who the hell did that? Why would that release a key?

By the time I hit the minigame I was incredulous. This game is so unrealistic it's not even funny. You can't even call 911, which would obviously have solved the entire puzzle in all of about 30 seconds. Next time maybe make it so either 9 or 1 is missing, and so that instead of passwords you have some kind of emergency hotline maybe... I don't know, but this game is wonky and surrealistic and it pissed me off. I really liked how the phone booth was such a cozy little place containing so much gameplay, and yet it was all ridiculous.

This one is a bit more difficult than the last two, but still fun...until I had to use the socket screwdriver. No matter where I click, the two bolts won't come off, thus making the puzzle unsolvable.
