Player Comments on Escape (Strategy)
All in all, quite a fun game, though I would place this in the 'Puzzle' category rather than the 'Everything Else'.
I did find one slight mistake where you coded a letter 'Q' instead of the letter 'O', but it wasn't a big deal since I could still understand the message. The math was fairly simple, though that was probably a good thing since difficult calculation problems would just make for a tedious playthrough. The difficulty level was about right for a wider audience. I also really appreciated how there are questions following even a wrong answer that give you a chance to go back, rather than a dead end plus an 'End Game and Leave Comments' link. These little glimpses of the additional work you put into this game were very much worth the effort.
I would advice including a bit more of a storyline to this, since the twist on the very last page was excellent and would be made even more surprising if you had some build up to it. A bit more foreshadowing, for instance, or just some flavor text on each page to add an overall atmosphere to the setting. Also, be sure to proofread and fix the pages with no links.
Still a fun game and better quality than the usual length 3 games due to its puzzle format. Great job, and I'll be looking forward to more games like this in the future.

That was pretty fun! I liked your writing style as well. The only things I could really complain about, wass that it was much too short, and you seemed to really overuse the number=letter type of puzzles.
How you gave me a hint at the end was extremely helpful, otherwise I would've never gotten it, and figured out who you were... *shivers* Or who I was...

First off: I really enjoyed this game! I think it deserves a slightly higher rating than it currently has.
There was a mistake near the beginning where the word "BOLD" was encoded as "BQLD", but other than that this piece of writing was fairly error-free. Overall I enjoyed the various ciphers/puzzles found on each page.
However, I think that this was a little too simple - the same standard number->letter cipher was used throughout the duration of the game, with a few extra simple maths equations thrown in. I think that some of the latter puzzles at least should've been made more difficult.
It would also have been a good idea to incorporate an actual plot into this, alongside the puzzles (an easy example would be that you are in the secret service etc.)
I didn't really understand the ending, because it didn't seem to make much sense to me, but it was interesting nonetheless.
All in all, this is not a bad attempt by any means, and I wish there were more of these types of stories on the site.

This is pretty good, slightly better than homework.(But it kinda is homework at the sametime because it works your brain.

It was a fun math game. And I don't tell that to any math game because some of the suck, but this one didn't. I liked this game.

Pretty good, however i found it quite predictable, plus you could have fleshed out the story alittle bit more, while it leaves mistery it felt rather cheap.

I rated it better than Reese's Cups, but only because it was kinda confusing. I mean, the path I took made those first numbers completely useless! But other than that, AMAZING.

Not too bad, needs more objects as well as possibly people? Otherwise pretty good.

Fun but short, still not sure why I had to remember all my answers as I really only needed a couple of them in the end.

Interesting concept. I thought it was fun.

I thought it was okay, but I really didn't feel like doing math since I just got out of school.

Be sure to leave no pages without links. Always put a previous page link at least. A page without links is ugly and makes the author seem lazy or forgetful. Otherwise, it was an enjoyable game.
