Free Game Friday: Don’t Escape 2

Not only is Friday a day to celebrate the oncoming weekend, get a takeaway and go out for a couple of bevvies with your friends and family, for us here at GameSpew it’s time for #FreeGameFriday. That’s right Spewers; it’s the best day of the week.

Don’t worry regular readers; you’re not going mad and neither am I. Rather than werewolves we’re dealing with that old chestnut: zombies! Yes, this week it’s Scriptwelder’s Don’t Escape 2. As opposed to its predecessor, Don’t Escape 2 is actually more traditional. Rather than barricading yourself in, you’re barricading the beasties out – but here’s the kicker: this time you have a time limit.

You, the unnamed survivor, have until sunset before a horde of 50 zombies comes a’moaning and groaning to nibble on your flesh. You’ve got eight hours, one bitten friend, five scavenging destinations, and two potential survivors to save. Everything is about making smart decisions. It seems like plenty of time to prepare, but don’t be fooled. Rather than happening instantly like in Don’t Escape, each task has a time cost and sometimes that can be quite a challenge if you don’t think before you act.

“It doesn’t matter what genre you’re into or if you think flash games are totally last year, these are the sorts of things you need to have a go on, even if you don’t think you’ll like it. It’s online, it’s free; what’s stopping you?”

In following my previous efforts, the first time was, again, terrible and I kicked myself for missing out on some of the things that were absolutely blatant. But that’s the beauty of Scriptwelder’s creations; they’re so simplistic yet so wonderfully thought through. It’s an interactive story and a puzzle, and you know how I love puzzle games. It doesn’t matter what genre you’re into or if you think flash games are totally last year, these are the sorts of things you need to have a go on, even if you don’t think you’ll like it. It’s online, it’s free; what’s stopping you? Click the link below and see if you can beat the challenge.

So let us know how you get on in the comments below, we always love to hear your views, and I’ll speak to you next week, folks.
