Out of all the genres of games becoming available on smartphones, Old Offender will convince you it is the "escape adventure" genre that fully exploits the power of 3D graphics and full-screen touch panel.
In this game, you are a prisoner in jail. What you see first are bars of your cell. Tapping on the directional arrows allow you to look around. Try tapping the screen at various points to acquire items and information. The basic of this game is to use those items and information to escape from this prison. Of course, there are puzzle-solving elements, so fans of the genre are sure to love this game.
At times, you may wonder how to use some items. In those cases, they might work in combination with others.
The game doesn't take much time to finish if everything goes smoothly, but few players would find it that easy. Before giving up, refer to the BBS by tapping on the HELP button in the start menu. Numerous topics are already there, so you can find useful tips and advice. However, the BBS does not tell you all answers, so don't expect too much. Enjoy thinking with your own head.
If you get addicted to escaping, two sequels, Old Room and Old Basement are already available by the same publisher. They are more difficult and complicated than the first one. But harder the escape, more gratifying the ending becomes.
