Escape a Tower - My First Text Adventure Game (PPT/Web)

This is Escape a Tower: my first text adventure/PowerPoint game. Some nefarious dude has kidnapped you, and your goal is to navigate your way out of his puzzle-filled tower!

Escape a Tower originally released in 2010 as a PowerPoint game. In 2014, I ported the game to the Web.

 

Left: PowerPoint. Right: Web.

The PowerPoint version is the "OG" release that offers a full screen experience. It was last updated in 2012.
The Web version is playable on smartphones, has grammatical corrections, and includes more post game content. It was last updated in 2018.

Let me know which version you try!

Hi Tim!
I did the Web version and enjoyed it till the very end despite my 16 game overs! Well done. I'm glad the riddles were not too difficult - it's easy for me to lose interest otherwise. I also liked the humor - I decided to have a lot of coffee cups when in uniform with the guards and you foresaw that with funny responses. I went on till 17 and another game over. In what other parts of the game did you implement this approach?

Your game reminds me of an experience I went through at University. We were freshmen lined up in a huge gym hall signing up for the first time. There were hundreds of us and it was loud. There was staff sitting at desks scattered all over the gym floor and rope hand rails for people to follow route. There was the photo desk for an immediate ID, the medical questionnaire desk, board&room, course selection, etc, etc. Walking up to a desk we would get 1 or more coded forms to fill out and to take to other desks. The guys at the desks were not too specific about what to actually do and created a sense of rush "Next please! Hurry up!". We didn't want to show that we didn't know what the heck was going on and played on - what later turned out to be - their game. If we gave the wrong form or gave wrong answers in the form or went to the wrong desk we were sent back, sometimes a few desks back to clarify and start anew form that point on. With the commotion, pushing and shoving it took me a while before I realized I was taking part in a real-life MAZE GAME!

They explained it at the end - it was part of some Uni experiment. We all had a laugh. And got a free beer.

Hi Guys,

I have posted Yahretzky's question above into PPC Help Center as a new thread so that this thread can stay on-topic.
