Don't Let This One Escape You
Imagine Exit, Dementium and Pac-man woven together to create a sort of stealth-arcade adventure on the go. It's pretty short, but considering the price tag, I feel I've more than gotten my money's worth. You play as a woman escaping a hospital, but like Dementium, you don't know why you're there in the first place – you just know you have to make tracks.
The levels are designed like intricate Pac-man levels made to look like real-life settings. You'll pick up power-ups along the way to aid you in your escape, and though luck plays a small part in your success, it's a surprisingly exciting, little adventure.
The visuals remind me a bit of Contact (DS), and the subtle music and sound effects are a nice backdrop to the gameplay. There are something like 15 levels to play through, plus an excellent survival mode that's unlocked about midway through the story. A multiplayer option is also included, but unless you can hook up with someone locally, it's kind of a moot point.
For $2, you can't beat this excellent DSiWare title. It's polished, intriguing, and great fun while it lasts. It's a must-own and easily accessible with its uber-low price tag.
