3D Methods Launches Cryptic Escape on Mobile

Mobile game developer 3D Methods has announced the launch of its latest app on mobile devices, and the fifth title in its “Cryptic” series, Cryptic Escape. The point-and-click style adventure game sees players taken to a medieval world, under the threat of an invading army. Players begin trapped in a cell, and must complete their quest to find the hidden chamber of Malvadius to stop the enemy from taking over the land.

Throughout the game, players tap to move around their environments, and tap again to zoom into particular areas (say, a peculiar stone on the wall, a fireplace or a window). Gamers will collect over 70 items as they play, and can tap to use these items to unlock doors, retrieve other key items or otherwise continue their journey.

The game’s map shows players a general layout of the castle, and gamers can retrace their steps to pick up missed items or interact with items that were previously inaccessible.

A hint system provides step-by-step (but vague) clues should players become lost, but if all else fails, a link to a video walkthrough is also available.

Cryptic Escape is available to download for $0.99 on iTunes, Google Play and the Amazon Appstore.
