Review of 'Great Escape, The'

Rating:5 User: p13z

Isometric arcade adventure game, where you play a prisoner of war, attempting to do as the title suggests.
You must play along with the routine of the prison camp, and ensure the guards don't rumble any of your escape preparations, like a severe version of SkoolDaze. The 'play area' is monochrome, but beautifully drawn and smoothly scrolled. It is atmospheric, and draws you in as it plays out like a story.
Spent many happy hours playing this with a friend at the time, a great game.
