Friday Fun: 40xEscape

By Akemi Iwaya on September 28th, 2012


This week’s game literally lives up to its name…forty locked doors and forty tests of your problem solving skills. Some of the solutions will be obvious, but others will test your patience to solve them. Do you have what it takes to escape forty times or will you be locked up in defeat?




The first level gets you started on how to think when it comes to solving the ‘puzzles’ you will encounter as you seek to unlock the door for each level.


Simply clicking the wall button multiple times will allow you to ‘light up’ the word Escape a letter at a time in neon green and unlock the door.


Once you successfully unlock the door you will be able to move on to the next level.


The second level has no wall button to use, so you need to move your mouse around until you find the interactive element(s) to work with.


Clicking the letters one at a time will help you unlock the second door.


Level three gives you a numerical puzzle to solve…


Later on you will encounter the first of the word puzzles…


On level six it is all a matter of timing…


Solve the picture on level eight…


And sometimes the answer is staring you directly in the face… Good luck and have fun!
