You can't remember the last time you left your room. When you receive a barcode reader in the mail, you discover that the world around you is not what it seems, and must escape the bars of black and white.

"Bars of Black and White" is a game in the room-escape tradition with hand-drawn line art graphics and novel barcode-scanning action. Is the world insane, or is it you?



Rated 2.5 / 5 stars


most of the codes are on the walls of bar codesat the end


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


I beat the game but I only found 14 out of 30 barcodes. I wish I knew where to find the other 16 ones.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

nice game

it was hard at the begining but once i beat the computer game it was easy


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Good game

I originally gave this a 1 and then replayed it after reading some reviews and changed my mind. Good concept, but not the best I have played. Complete the computer game to get your scanner. Thats the trick to it. Hope there is a sequel.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


This was a very cool game. I liked that the puzzles weren't too complex, and all the item usage actually made sense (unlike most point-n-clicks. I liked the twist ending as well, and that it turned out that the entire prison was in your own mind, and I also like that you wrote all those things to yourself, even though it was never expressly stated.
