Like many games before it the game instantly throws you right into the thick of things. Players can choose to play as one of six different characters which have their own episode within the game. These episodes offer a different experience, setting and overall feel which makes for some great variety in the content. While they all have their own stories behind the focus is very much on escaping and won’t bog you down with unnecessary story elements.

While the settings are different each episode features one recurring element, a locked door for players to pass through. Unlocking these doors is not going to be as easy as turning the door knob though with episodes requiring players to complete often a large process of events in order to get the door open. Most of this process involves the use of inventory style puzzles but there are also more generalised puzzle types available that regular puzzle players will recognise.

The game also features a healthy blend of hidden object style puzzles so fans of hidden object hunts will also be attracted to the gameplay of Roombreak: Escape Now!!!
