A really neat look at helping others escape from somewhere. A good use of theme to look past the obvious. The obstacles had a nice variety between shooting dogs, bear traps, soldiers, and running guards.

Overall a very good entry. I hope there are more that leave me this satisfied.

I'm afraid I can't download the game to try it out, I recommend you check the link to make sure it works...

Thumbs up for nice retro style art, one of the better entries I've tried.

Surprisingly entertaining, definitely one of the better ones. Also, animations look really nice, as well as the graphics as a whole. Fantastic take on the theme. A really nice game!

A pretty decent game. It worked as you would expect - to the point where you could accidentally shoot the escapees - and the game was fun and exciting to play.

The only thing I wasn't so fond of was the graphical style. I feel the retro-ish graphics don't quite fit with the smooth scenic background. It's a bit of an odd mix, in my opinion.
I know it's a bit short sighted to say, but at first glance I thought the escapees were black slaves.

Nice! Loved the presentation and it was a great quick playthrough. The art was a bit inconsistent but the audio was spot on. It felt like the collisions on the bear traps might be a bit off, or I just suck at aiming.

Well done!

Loved the nice retro graphics. However, it is too difficult to play with a touchpad... ;-)
