Flash Friday: Casual Gameplay Escape is a game where you solve puzzles to escape a room. Some puzzles are more difficult than others.

Here's a not really helpful walkthrough if you get stuck...clues are hidden until you click on them.

Actually that walkthrough is here...oops.

Um, some of these games seem very crappy. Like the dice game which has many possible solutions but one correct answer, and the red and yellow squares game, which I can't see the logic of. I'm still hooked, though.

I can only see one solution to the dice game. I played this earlier in the week, but I went back just now to look again, and I just can't see any other way for it to work.

Also, the red/yellow rectangle puzzle was one I had to refer to the walkthrough to get. I tells you "what" to do, but now "how," so at least I still had to figure something out on my own there.

Finished the whole thing without the any help. Probably the first time I've ever done that with a flash "escape" game.

...and it didn't take me that long, either.

Okay, I finally got the jist of using the posters, so I take back my complaint about the DJ game. I escaped at last. It feels pretty good, actually, to be out of there.

This is pretty frustrating.

Okay, let me just save you all the trouble: this is, hands-down, the best room escape game out there.

More neutral games.

These are pretty neat too.

I nominate the "escpape" tag as a signifier of things unnecessarily frustrating.

The Vision game greenie links is great because the puzzles are actually logical. If you can't figure it out, it's your own damn fault.

Wow. Some of those puzzles were not logical. Lots of guesswork, trial and error, trying things so many goddamn times. More frustrating than engaging.
