Completely Free Puzzle Game Ice Escape: Steakosaurus Rescue Slides Onto Google Play
Ice Escape is a new puzzle game from a two man indie development team made up of Corey (the programmer and artist) and Jesse (the musical genius). By working together they have crafted a very fun puzzle game that has rewarding gameplay, appealing graphics, an unforgettable soundtrack, engaging environments, and best of all it is completely free! That’s right, no ads, no IAP’s – completely free! But why free you ask? Quite simply the devs have stated that they love what they do and they wanted to prove to themselves that if one believes they can do something they can if they work hard enough. These two friends just love what they do and they wanted to share their creation with anyone that wants to try it out.
Ice Escape is a puzzle game that has you helping prehistoric creatures escape from a glacier they’ve been frozen in for millions of years. In the game you take control of three different characters; Peter Plesiosaur, Tori Triceratops and Mohawk Mammoth. Each of these characters has their own special abilities, but there will be times where you’ll have to combine these abilities to escape certain mazes. Puzzles are solved by swiping your finger in the direction you want your creature to go and you will send it sliding across the ice until they hit a wall and stop. Levels start out pretty easy to get you warmed up to the game’s mechanics, but as you play through Ice Escape’s 100 hand crafted levels you will definitely start to notice an increase in the puzzle’s difficulty.
Ice Escape is a great looking and great sounding game that has been most highly inspired by game’s like Banjo-Kazooie on the Nintendo 64. Part of Corey and Jesse’s goal with Ice Escape was to replicate some of the nostalgia from that era, and if you ask me they’ve done a wonderful job here. Ice Escape’s gameplay has also been inspired by the ice caves from the Pokemon series as well as the lock puzzles found in Skylanders. With such great influences you know Ice Escape is going to be a game that shouldn’t be missed out on.
