Decent environment, nice puzzles, simple controls
War Escape for Android is a puzzle driven game that revolves around the user, playing as a war prisoner confined in a military bunker somewhere in continental Europe. The story is driven by a self-appointed mission to escape from captivity using your puzzle solving skills.
The rooms in the bunker have more than decent graphics and a soundtrack that manages to provide the users with the atmosphere for their escape. The game is enjoyable and provides easy interaction with scenes and objects by taping around the environment to find clues and items to use on their own or in combination with other hidden objects in order to form a solution for you to escape each room and enter the next until the ultimate goal of freedom has been achieved. The puzzles are logical and shouldn’t stress the user for a long period of time but they are fun nonetheless, with most puzzles having a certain degree of originality to them. If by any chance players should at any point become stuck in a level, the game can provide you them a walkthrough video and thus help move things along. It is worth mentioning that many of the game’s levels must be purchased through in-app purchases, thus limiting free users to only a small part of the story and content.
Overall War Escape is a highly enjoyable brain teaser that brings challenging puzzles without being obnoxiously difficult to solve. It also features a great environment to play around and manages to immerse players within the game world through the story of an escaping war prisoner.
