Can You Escape 2 Review

Puzzle game Can You Escape 2 for iOS and Android is finally here – but it’s missing a few levels

Can You Escape 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to Can You Escape, the popular puzzle game. The objective is simple: find the hidden objects to reach the next level.

Logic is the main skill required here, so if you struggle with these types of puzzles, you might find this game tests your patience. As a bonus (or a hindrance, depending on the type of gamer you are) the app doesn’t allow you to skip levels, meaning you have to work through the game methodically in order to complete it.

A big letdown for the game at this stage is that only the first eight levels are available to play – the other seven are still currently in development, so you may find that the game comes to a shuddering halt for a few months until the next few levels are released.

Can You Escape 2 is free but by default has advertisements. You can remove these for just £0.69/$0.99 in-app, and it’s well worth doing so as you gain some extra screen real-estate for gameplay and it prevents video adverts from appearing sporadically when you press either the Help or Settings icon.

This is a fun and challenging way to spend some time – but it falls short of being a truly great game until all levels are available to play.

Rated 3 out of 5

An addictive app where logic is the name of the game – but it is worth investing in the ad-free version for better gameplay.
