Description

About the Game: Alleys is an adventure experience in which the player explores a theme park world full of quaint alleys that would fit perfectly in small towns in the English countryside. The gameplay is simple, with fewer of the complicated elements often found in puzzle games. All the player needs to do is to search for passageways, gather resources, and get immersed in the exquisite graphics and noir atmosphere. The player is free to choose where to go and can solve puzzles in any order to escape. Background Story of Game: Alleys is a large-scale escape room hosted by a theme park, and the player is a tourist who has decided to take part in the escape experience. The player wanders through a fictional old English-style town, collects resources, solves puzzles, and overcomes obstacles to gradually discover the backstory woven throughout the alleys. In the end, the player finds the exit gate and escapes. MAIN FEATURES: 1. Alleys Exploration The players must find the way through complicated alleys, buildings, and sewers. 2. Check in to Proceed Accumulate points by activating the check-in stations found in new locations. Certain areas require a specific number of points to enter. 3. Freely Choose Your Route Alleys is a non-linear adventure puzzle game with no predetermined route. The player is free to explore and can escape the game as long as the conditions required to open the town exit gate are fulfilled. 4. Collect Resources Player decides how to use the keys and other resources collected in the game. The decisions the player makes will affect the difficulty of the game. 5. Solve Riddle on Tool Cards Every Tool Card is its own little riddle. Figure out the meaning of the illustration to find out what the card can be used for. 6. Simple Controls No need for virtual controllers—just swipe and tap to easily move around and interact with items.

  • Lots of potential but full of arbitrary & unnecessary frustrations

    The game is fun and has potential....but there are several things that annoy the absolute crap out of me: 1. No map legend so if you can’t remember which symbol is the mining office, good effing luck. Nothing found on the developer’s website or via google searches either. 2. No “you are here” symbol on the map. 3. You can accidentally win before you’re done exploring and there’s no warning. Then you have to start completely over. Seriously. Since there are several ways to escape, this is just extra stupid. 4. I got the “All Aboard!” achievement, which is great I guess, but now the announcement - which takes up half the screen - pops up all the time. For. The. Love...sigh. 5. Apparently there’s new stuff in the latest update but I’ve only encountered a couple small new areas and there’s now these weird people shaped posters that give you useless information & minor backstory. And guess what?! If you’ve played through before and just want to go back to see the new stuff, NOPE! You have to play the whole fracking game from the beginning. YAAAAAAAY. 6. The “quest tracker” only tracks a few quests...the main ones, of course, but also some of the side ones but only 1 or 2. Why can’t the game track all your quests?! I’m all for writing things down for an escape game but not something as basic as what the game wants me to do. So unnecessarily frustrating.

    Totally great gaming experience, the fifth star would be there if the game isn’t crashing when loading between areas. My device is iPhone6 with 12.1.2 iOS version, in case you need to know for further crashes investigation.

    The game crashed, and now it's now stuck on the main menu. The icons on the menu screen are unresponsive. It's impossible to play.
  • Fun killer

    Beautiful graphics but the amount of screens to read and the business with the keys kills the game.
  • One of the biggest surprises of 2018

    *the dev is currently working on fixing the itouch 6 crash issues so I am changing my review back This has easily been one of the most addictive and fun games I purchased this past year. And to be honest, I never thought I would like a game about just collecting tool cards and keys, but the game strips down the puzzle solving and it’s all the more fun because of it. The graphics are really great looking on iOS (pc quality) with great attention to detail. Since the ‘re-release’ the dev even made some really nice changes to the graphics style and control movement making it feel much more smooth and like you’re in better control. It really fits the touch screen well. This is definitely one of the better premium games on iOS that warrants the price. The gameplay can last upwards of 15+ hours depending on how much of the story you want to discover or if you want to 100% the game by collecting everything, discovering all secrets and completing the achievements that were also recently added.

    I play many room escape, adventure, puzzle games. This is one of the best I’ve played in a long while. Thanks to the dev(s) for the fine work.

    Great idea but it keeps freezing and will not let me do anything.
  • One of the best escape games I’ve ever seen

    What else can I say? This is a masterpiece. Great graphics and gameplay, soundtrack and environmental are top notch. The UI (I’ve only ever seen the “all-new” one) is awesome, intuitive and helpful. The concept of “cards” makes conquering puzzles fun but adds its own new dimension at the same time. Really impressive game. Not done yet but looking forward to seeing how it all comes together. One note: some of the text could use proofreading. There are some clunky sentences, weird grammar and spelling errors. I see this is developed by a Chinese company so much of that can be forgiven, but it does take away a little bit from an otherwise very polished experience.
  • So much wasted potential

    It hangs. Often. Especially when moving between areas. This time it won’t restart at all. Just goes to the restart/player/start screen and refuses to go forward. Apple store QA should never allowed an app this buggy. I want my money back!
  • Loved it!

    Brilliant, took me days to get through, and now I want to play again. Took *lots* of exploration, looking into every nook and cranny, and even getting out pen and paper at one point to do some mapping, though it is not required to finish. Beautiful art, sound, and graphics. Enormous map. Logical puzzles. A few small glitches here and there, like sometimes you do something to generate a tool card and it puts it into your inventory without telling you, so it is confusing to see that you *do* suddenly have that thing that you need, even though you don’t know why! Also several notable typos in the English version (forth/fourth). But the rest is exceptional. Recommended!
