Lo.Nyan's Room Escape 13
Lo.Nyan, Lo.Nyan, wherefore art thou, Lo.Nyan? We've been hankering for one of your escape games, so thank goodness you're here with Lo.Nyan's Room Escape 13. As usual, you're locked in a room somewhere, but also as usual, it's just a bit too stylish and cozy looking for you to want to realistically escape from. A hanging basket chair, a cup of your favourite beverage, a bright and airy view, and all the books you could want? Colour me hermited! Still, if you want to play, you have to try to find a way out, so it's time to ferret out all the puzzles and the items needed to solve them. Just click around to move and interact, using the directional arrows that appear and your changing cursor for guidance. To use an item, click it once so it highlights green, then click where you'd like to try to use it. Want to get a closer look at something? Click the object in your inventory, then the "about item" button, which will allow you to manipulate it up close and personal. Oh, and if you hate having to take screenshots of clues or write them down, don't worry... you can pick up a camera you can use to take photos of important things to carry with you!
While some of the clicking and navigation is a little clunky, if you want clever and logical puzzles, Lo.Nyan's name should always be up at the top of your list. The camera is such a welcome tool, as is the way the game allows you to "stick" certain clues to the top or sides of the screen (an arrow will appear beneath them when viewed up close if possible), making the game feel user-friendly in the way few other escapes ever are. Lo.Nyan knows how to make puzzles that are clever without being obnoxiously obscure and this game is no different, though perhaps not as difficult as some other games from the developer have been in the past. Lo.Nyan's Room Escape 13 is smartly constructed and a near perfect balance between light whimsy and smart puzzle design, combining for one excellent escape to kick back and escape your own day with.
