Escape Games or also called Escape the Room Games is the game genre where you have to use your brain the most! This genre unites puzzle and adventure games, some of them even have some elements of racing games. Players might find themselves imprisoned in different locations such as prison, classroom, dark house etc, or must run away from hot lava or tsunami to survive. In the first case, players usually act from the first-person perspective and have to explore the surroundings and find useful objects and interact with them to rescue the character.
Most Breakout Games have a plot and a story behind a wish for liberation, short cut scene consisting only of comic-like pictures and some text to establish how the character got there might be offered at the beginning of the game. In another, race-like type of escaping games you just have to run away as fast as you can avoiding obstacles and collecting some items on the way for additional points. Much fun!
