Monday Mind Teasers: Swan's Room

Last week had not one, but twelve puzzles for you to peruse over in the past week, and I encourage you to go back and give them each a try if you haven't yet. However, if you're all caught up and ready for a few more mind teasers, then I've got another reader suggestion in the form of another "escape the room" genre game.

Dtoider The-Excel has guided us to a flash game called Swan's Room that can be equally fun and frustrating. It begins just like Crimson Room but ends in a frantic two minute bomb diffusal puzzle that is a bit misleading. For those of you that have mastered Crimson Room, this one is a bit on the easy side up until the end -- be warned: you CAN die and be forced to start all over -- but it still offers some clever interactive objects along the way.

I like how several items had more than one use before being tossed away, with even some non-inventory objects also having a few different purposes. I get that claustrophobia is part of the point to these games, but I think it would be interesting if someone made a flash game like this that took place in a whole mansion instead of a single room, much like successful The 7th Guest game. If I can find it, I have a game that's slightly like this that I'll introduce next week.

You can play Swan's Room here, or visit Mofuya's homepage for more puzzle games. Do you have any AJAX/HTML/flash game suggestions for future Monday Mind Teasers? Email me or leave the suggestion in the comments and I'll put it to the test!

Review: Abyss Odyssey

One thing you can't accuse Chilean developer ACE Team of doing is ploughing the same, well trodden ground as other indie devs. Its debut hit Zeno Clash combined a surrealistic art style with first-person, melee combat, while ...more
