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: .

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!

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Good game, overall. Graphics and music are top notch and the atmosphere is really good. However:
- Those hidden pits are pure evil. They're nearly invisible and there's nothing in-game that could possibly reveal their existence to the player. That means a lot of undeserved punishment and frustration for newcomers.
- The ghosts are even worse than the invisible pits. They have the tendency to pop-up on you passing through walls, often when you are mid-movement, and the player can't possibly prevent it any way. I think they would be better as atmospheric effects rather than enemies.
- The gameplay lacks urgency, which would increase tension and, in my opinion, will make the gameplay better.

great now go with a dungeon hack - eye of the beholder version

monster slashing and fireball trowing! IT'S ADVENTURE TIME!

Haha, I was definitely going for that retro-3D dungeon look - and they're both randomly generated too! I strongly recommend Lands of Lore as well, it's a great retro-3D RPG.

davidmaletz responds:

Does it have an error message, like "requires 3D hardware?" Please PM me the details, and I'll see if I can help you get it working again.

The game was funny I saw a black phantom for the first time and actually got scared..4 stars because the controls feel too stiff it would be better to be able to look around with the mouse and to move with WASD.
