Escape game - Escape Through History

One of the best things about puzzle games is that there is a wide range of variety in them. Escape room is one such sub-genre where you are placed in a situation or in a literal room from which you need to escape. In order to escape, you need to find hidden clues and form a strategy. Though the real-life escape style puzzle games are much more interactive and fun, by finding a good escape game, you can be lost in it for hours. Here are some of the best escape game apps for Android and iPhone.

16. Laqueus Escape

The game starts with a very spooky, old burst radio frequency-like intro already gripping you in (use headphone). The gameplay is a bit similar to other games, where you can tap on objects and rotate the field of view to reveal objects. Of course, you use these to get ahead and unlock doors, but even when you think you have the right objects fitting at the right places, you get nowhere ahead in the game.

The only way to move forward and escape the room is by spending more time with the clues and finding creative ways to use them.

The game seems easy initially, but you get to a point where even after you have all the clues you are nowhere close to the finish, moreover the background music has a horror-like tone, which grips you but makes you anxious at the same time.

The game has 4 chapters in total, with the option to restart chapters. There is also a hint icon, which allows you to fetch a hint by watching ads, but that didn’t work for me. The pro version comes at $4, but oddly, I didn’t find any ads in the game.

Price: Free, has ads(didn’t pop up while I used), and in-app purchases.

Install Laqueus Escape (Android | iOS)

17. Nox Mystery Adventure

Nox is touted as one of the best escape games on the app store. With terrific 3D graphics laced with a detective-like storyline, it might not be suited for some who are looking for a small-sized game. If that’s not a problem this puzzle will surely put your mind to work as you have to find multiple clues in various room locations. If you’re looking for a combination of logical thinking, detective, and escape genre game, this one has all well fitted into one.

The game can be confusing for first-timers although I highly recommend you to try and solve it in one go. If you get stuck, there are plenty of walkthrough videos you can refer to, like this one.

Price: Free, has ads, and in-app purchases(ad removal).

Install Nox Mystery Adventure (Android | iOS)

Best Escape Game Apps?

Escape Room Games give you a different thrill and adrenaline rush mainly because it simulates real-life situations. I like Titanic escape because of the nostalgia and the impact Titanic had on me as a kid. True Fear and hell raids are one of the best games with an intriguing storyline. I hope that helps.
