Hi guys,

For those of you who like exploration games here's a new one you might enjoy: Escape HD. You begin in a strange place and you need to find the way out. Each room has a key somewhere. Find it and open the door. As you progress, monsters will block your way, so you will need to decide which monsters to attack and which to avoid. After each room you can invest points in attack, defense, or health. Shop becomes available later where you can buy first-aid kits, bombs, and night-vision goggles.

Game trailer:

This is actually pretty fun.

Are the levels random and how do I save?

hey Bazooka, your progress is automatically saved, so you don't need to save manually. levels aren't completely random. level size and amount of monsters is fixed for each level. but positions are random, so if you died you can be more lucky next time . to start all over again there is a button that looks like this: |<

yeah, the sale was until end of April, so it's over. i edited first post and changed the title, but it hasn't updated yet i guess.
