For such a basic looking title, I found myself really enjoyed playing One Escape. There were layers to this puzzle platformer that I wasn’t expecting, like each character having their own specialized ability; strength for Rhino (obviously), Gorilla and his superb climbing and Duck being about to jump higher than his friends. Add to the mix security cameras, guards, and dangers like open electric wires and switch to open doors, One Escape was a pleasure to play and enjoy.
I found the short levels gave me the ability to pick up and play when I had a short amount of gaming time. If I was stuck/frustrated on a level I could switch to one of the other characters to progress through their levels. Controls were tight, visuals appeasing to the eyes and, of course, those sweet, easy achievements to boot.
At first glance One Escape appears to be yet another simple platformer. The use of three distinct characters and some fun level design however mean that anyone looking for a short, fun experience should defintely check One Escape out.Become a Patron!
