Review of 'Escape'

This little game shows how clever your mind can be in altering reality. With just a few dinosaurs, a simple randomly generated maze and a stick figure, you could transport yourself to the pre-historic times.

'Escape' shows how games looked like in the dawn of times, and how cute and wonderful they could be without the use of explicit violence and complex graphics.
Just take a look at Pac-man, people still play it to this day and it continuous to be release in almost all systems!

For me, 1983 to 1985 were the golden years of the Speccy era, with a few exceptions here and there, like 1982's 'Escape'. And those were genuinely good times.

It's a pity that you can choose the level in which to start, which diminishes the games interest, but besides that, this is a delightful little game.
