Escape! is my feeble and time-constrained attempt to recreate, from my admittedly poor memory, an online game I enjoyed playing many years ago but can no longer find. It was my favorite type of puzzle game, requiring the player to switch between analytical and creative modes of thought to solve.

How to Play

The goal is to escape from each level by moving the player piece to the exit using the arrow keys. Once the player piece starts moving, it doesn’t stop until it reaches an obstacle. If it leaves the game field, the level starts over. So you have to use the obstacles creatively to find the right path to the exit.
