Room Escape games

Hey guys,

Bought and really enjoyed Mystery Mania.

I love room escape games in general, and was wondering if there are any apps out there which are a must have in this genre.

Thanks

There's Theseus and the Minotaur.

Edit: Never mind. Wrong genre.

I thought Mystery Mania was a little too cutsey (but okay time killer). I do love the escape genre as well though, so here are a few I have

Mystique 1 & 2 (very dark and Halloween appropriate)
Raving Manor (a little easy with a comic book style)
iEscaper (one of my favorites!)
Surrounded (excellent and challenging)
Escapeseries 1 (this is a little off, and I have yet to finish it)

You might also like

Nick Chase (lots of puzzles in a more "adventure" setting)

Hope this offered you some new fun!

Great stuff just what I needed thanks.

I though MM was a bit cutesy (snd short) to, like you said though it's a good time killer on the train

Avoid Escape (The Room) - it's very straightforward and dull.

I very much enjoyed the Mystique games. I like horror games in general, and that was what drew me to them in the first place. To my surprise, it was a horror room escape game, and really enjoyable. I think Mystique 1 is still 99, too.

I just played Mystery mania and realize that it's not the mosat challenging game but I liked it. I am wondering which ones out of these are easier. I am looking for a fun game that's not too hard.
