A new genre of puzzle games has emerged in recent years: Escape Room Games. These games are similar to the common escape rooms you may have seen online, but the difference is that the goal of the game is to escape from a maze-like environment by solving puzzles within the room. Some escape games have also added some hidden object elements into the mix, which makes the game seem more like an adventure than just a bunch of people trying to get out of a room. This allows for a much more personal experience as the person playing gets to feel a sense of being involved with solving the puzzle, instead of just playing a generic version of the same games over again.
Today, these games have combined all their most popular products into one package, creating Escape Room puzzles that players must solve in order to move on to the next level. Puzzles are usually given out as puzzle pieces, through an in-game leaflet, and clues are hidden inside an in-game puzzle. If players are too eager, a clue hidden inside the room itself can be revealed. Once players solve the puzzle successfully, they will unlock the exit room, which is usually located in another location in the maze. Each time they solve a puzzle, they receive a prize, usually a cash prize or a new escape room. Once all of the rooms are unlocked, the player will get a trophy and move on to the next level.
Escape Room games are becoming incredibly popular and they have even taken to the Internet, where there are many websites dedicated to these types of games. These websites offer many different options for puzzles and prizes, allowing the player to pick from several different types of puzzles. Some of these websites even offer games that are based on famous stories, movies, TV shows, or even characters from other mediums.
