You have fallen into a vast underground maze. Can you find your way out, or will you end up trapped in darkness forever?

We recommend playing in a dimly lit room with your speaker or headphone volume turned up. It's best to play I Can't Escape late at night, as it is an eerie exploration experience.

Troubleshooting: This game requires flash player 11+. If you don't have flash player 11, the game will tell you, and you should download it (for free) here: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ .

If you get the error "requires 3D hardware rendering," that means it's not running on your graphics card for some reason. Try right clicking the game, clicking settings, and make sure "enable hardware acceleration" is checked in the display tab, then refresh the page. If that doesn't work, try updating your graphics card driver or your flash player version.

If you're using windows 8, cheese123 mentioned to me that he couldn't get the game to run unless he ran chrome in windows 8 mode. If you're using windows 8 and having trouble, you can try that and see if it makes a difference. Thanks a lot to cheese123!

If you are still having trouble playing the game, feel free to send me a PM!

Actually, yuki1406, there are doors you can't open without keys. ;)
As for the camouflaged holes, they were never random. They were most of the time in front of a door or a ladder, so the door or ladder would work as bait for the trap.

I noted as well the light decreasing and the character speeding up as he'd fall into deeper levels. Caused me a burst of panic near my game over. :D
Is the ghost capable of forcing you through the ground to the next deeper level ? It seemed so to me.

Quite a frightening game in the end, if you keep analysing all that is happening. ;)

The funny thing about humans is that they have such a strong desire to figure out patterns that they will see patterns even when there are none. Are there patterns - or is it completely random? Your mind will never let stop asking that question. And yes, the ghost is capable of forcing you down a level!

If the point was just being scary, I guess this is acceptable, but as a game I found it disappointing.

First of all, it seems like a luck-based game. The keys seemed to play absolutely no role in the game and I couldn't find any clues of what (not) to do. I seriously hope it's just me being dumb and not able to identify a pattern.

I also should say I understand the need for camouflaged holes, but sometimes they seemed so random they transformed a game that should be about keeping calm and being able to figure a way out into a game for feeling annoyed.

At last, the youtube video in the game description is not the least helpful. It doesn't explain how keys work neither gives us a hint of how many floors are there.

And what the hell is happening to newgrounds? The review sections are clustered with garbage.
