Fun little puzzles to keep me entertained and my brain thinking. Appreciate the thought and creativity involved in creating these games. Also love to see indie developers creating quality games.

highly recommended this game is super fun, easy and hard. i play this game all the time. it really gets your mind working. personally i enjoy the game and how it works your mind. if you like a game that has quests, puzzles and work your mind this is a game for you.
I love Haiku’s games, but

I wish there were a way to earn extra stars if you are really clueless.
Nicely done
by deductive reasoner on 2020/10/06 04:57
The story lines stay true. A wonderful distraction from daily things. I’m liking almost all of Haiku’s games... except the Solve It stories, but that’s just something I’m not into. Nicely done team.
Love Haiku
by SiriDevta on 2020/10/04 17:04
I am getting really into the Haiku games. They are fun and challenging
Fun game but....
by hiccupkid on 2020/09/29 22:54
I love Haiku games and have played many of them. I like this one but I’m frustrated that if I stop playing the game for a while and come back to it, it starts over at the beginning of the chapter. I may have found all the objects and worked out many puzzles to open doorways or whatever, set it aside for an hour or 2 and then be made to go through finding all the objects and solving the puzzles again when I start playing again. Some of these puzzles are hard and I really don’t want to do them over and over just because I don’t spend hours at a time playing this game. I’ve never had this issue in other Haiku games.

Review hidden ruins
by Alexclay3 on 2020/09/20 22:56
Very good storyline and directions on puzzles
Haiku games are FAB buuut...
by Brielen on 2020/09/20 02:33
Not my favorite Haiku game given the confusion about what to do with each puzzle. And the hints aren’t worth the stars. I know the clue is on the stone, so please don’t take 3 stars to state the obvious. Sheesh! That being said, I ADORE Haiku games. I want challenging but not without a clue that causes me to think and not just get frustrated with the lack of ingenuity.

Very Good Game
by Arthur7625 on 2020/09/12 07:20
This is a challenging game, which forces you to think in order to advance to the next level. Some of the puzzles are difficult, but there is also a greater sense of satisfaction when you figure out the solutions to the harder ones. Highly recommended as an enjoyable escape from boredom or a temporary reprieve from the worries of daily life.
Great game
by Aitch51 on 2020/09/10 21:30
Sometimes the puzzles i would think need logic seem to be more of a guessing game.

Leads you to the puzzles without being too easy. Makes you think just enough to be fun. Wish there would be a little less wait time between scenes/when you find an item.

I keep coming back to this game developer. The early games have much simpler puzzles compared to the recent games so sometimes I skip a puzzle or get help but I really enjoy them. Great job Haiku! Keep them coming.

This is my 5th Haiku Game and My 5th adventure escape game! I love the challenge that the games bring and how it makes me think! The games can sometimes be difficult but that’s why I love them so much! If you’re not up for a challenge then this probably isn’t the game for you. Keep making games like this!

Fun game but pretty hard and if you run out of stars it’s expensive to get more without completing task also makes you follow on Facebook for free stars but some people don’t have Facebook and don’t want to make one just for a game

Challenging, yet not impossible to figure out. Clues available for the tough ones! I enjoyed this game very much, and will try other games by this developer!
Love Haiku AE games, but this one was not my favorite.
by Ink_ninja on 2020/05/08 15:06
I have played several Haiku AE games and I love them. I love the challenge and uniqueness of the puzzles, and the stories are entertaining. I did enjoy playing Hidden Ruins, but it was not my favorite. Some of the puzzles were not clear. (The fish puzzle box was infuriating. And the yellow circuit puzzle fits more than one way, so I thought the game was glitched when I had completed it and nothing happened.) This particular game doesn’t save your progress within the chapter, so I had to repeat a few chapters. However I have noticed this is not an issue on their other games. What upset me most was spending stars to reveal hints that I had already passed - I’m sure this is an added issue of it not saving your progress. Overall, I enjoyed it but it could be better.

Doesn’t save your process.
by JPoff1224 on 2019/09/13 19:15
All the games I have played by this developer is fun. Some puzzles are challenging while others are exciting to play. I love all their games but this one drove me insane hence why I am giving it a 2 star rating. I would play the game, solve a really hard puzzle that I wanted to give up on and I finally get through it then move on. Move on to the next challenge where I would put my phone down and come back later and have to do the whole chapter over again. Errrrrrrr! So extremely frustrating. None of the other games do this. If you stopped in the middle of the chapter you can still pick up where you left off. Not this game for some reason. So again I would have to redo the challenging puzzle again, re-find everything again. I was on the last chapter of this game when it had me redo everything. I just deleted the game. I was not going to move those blocks around to get the stopper out again. Frustrating

SO FAR SO GOOD
by Jkzie on 2019/05/21 21:20
Only solved one chapter, so don't know what I am doing yet. But like the game and it seems to work well. Would help if there were some instructions. Will review again later when I figure out what I am doing. JKasie Chap.3. Still don't know all what I am doing, but progressing. Fun game. Don't bother with hints though. They aren't very helpful. Chap.5 Have not played for months. Returned to game and started at beginning. Still like the game but gave only 3 stars because: hints are stupid and don't help. Need to be more specific. Don't use ! The really bad thing tho is no save. I only have short times to play games, so have to repeat puzzles that I have solved because game is sent back to the beginning of the chapter if I don' have time to finish it in one sitting. BORING to repeat. So I stop playing the game. Too bad, because I basically like the game.
Haiku Makes Great Games but....
by Shop_Diva on 2019/01/26 05:15
I originally reviewed this after the first chapter (as requested); everything was going well and made sense to that point. It got much, much more difficult as it progressed and not everything was as clear as in the beginning. The puzzles, while offering great variety and not the same old same old, are often quite difficult and it is not always obvious what needs to be done. I like being challenged, but if I need to spend hours on one puzzle, I get irritated and just want to move on. That said, I have completed several games from this developer and keep coming back for more.
Haiku = Great games
by Neebwok on 2017/08/13 12:59
Initial review: I have only made it through 1 chapter of the Hidden Ruins game (without using hints although I was tempted for a moment)and it's no surprise to me that I'm already hooked on the story line and intriguing puzzles. Great game so far, but I wouldn't expect anything less from Haiku ;-) Final review: Finished the game! There were several very challenging puzzles along the way, which I did like. It's great to be able to find & earn stars...I needed to use them for hints when I got impatient with some of the puzzles. I liked the direction that the storyline took and how it end. Can't wait for another new Adventure Escape game!
Great Game... BUT.....
by dawnn510 on 2018/02/19 00:29
The only reason I am giving this game 4 stars instead of 5 is because it made me re-do nearly every single level, over and over! Every time I had to stop playing, even thy I had completed a challenge—or even completed an entire level—when I went back into it, it started the entire level OVER again! That got seriously FRUSTRATING!! Some of the levels I had to do over & over 3,4, even 5 times because of this! Every puzzle over & over! That’s ridiculous!! But, other than that, it was a great game and very challenging. If I had only had to figure out each puzzle only one time instead of 4 or 6 times, it would have made the game WAYYYY better!!
Haiku has awesome games
by Modewoman79 on 2017/12/14 03:00
This is the 4th haiku game I’ve played , and I have to say I am addicted !! Their puzzles are fun and challenging , the best thing I love about Haiku games is that they’re free. Legit free, not like other game developers where they say it’s free, but after the first chapter it’s .... to unlock the next chapter purchase for $2.99 . I’ve played games where I’m really enjoying the game and the puzzles and BAM .. to continue to the next chapter and unlock the game it cost $6.99 . And I delete it because I don’t want to pay $7.00 for a game . So thank you Haiku for making free games that are challenging and fun to play.
No WiFi Game
by Widderune on 2020/03/14 01:46
This game plays like a escape game, but it has a plot with cutscenes (hence, Adventure Escape). Many of the puzzles can be solved with ease, but the developers leave enough difficult puzzles for you to try and figure out (the hard puzzles are usually at the end of a chapter). You can find and collect stars to use as currency for answers, but try not to use them unless it is necessary. The best part (of course) is you do not need any WiFi to play this game. Haiku Games craft their apps rather well. No disappointments so far.
As good as the others, but there are a few glitches
by Tuesday Patience on 2018/05/12 05:38
I’ve enjoyed this game as much as all the other Haiku games, but I have gotten tripped up several times because I can’t get the game to recognize when I click on an item. This has made me question what I’m doing and waste hints. I prefer to not use hints at all if I can help it, but I’ve had to on this one - only to find out I’m doing it right but the game isn’t responding. But this is a great story and keeps my interest, so I’m still doing 5 stars!
When it says free it's not a joke AND it's worth playing
by l2awkism on 2017/09/13 09:49
That's the main sentiment to get from this. Sure, it's not as long as the money games, but these are worth playing and not too difficult. Great for passing the time and not wanting to throw your phone constantly. I've played 4 games by this developer so far and each one has gotten better and/or maintained the quality of the others. Thanks for making fun adventure escape games without the usual tricks :)
I give it a 4 because...
by cpabound on 2018/05/06 18:02
I give it a 4 because it asked me to write a review after the first chapter to get 5 stars in return. Well, not exactly what I like to do (write a review in exchange for something), and it is a bit early in the game to ask for a review. I need to play it a bit longer to give better feedback. But, so far it has been a good game. Challenging puzzles and haven’t seen any glitches yet. I hope I don’t, or my opinion of the game will drop very quickly. I would recommend the game. It’s worth playing though the first chapter so far.
Fun, but could use Improvements
by Cam Kat on 2018/07/29 20:19
I love these little Haiku games; they have interesting puzzles, fun storylines, and are more involved than an I-spy, point-and-click. However, in this game in particular, I’ve met with a lot of interface and mechanics frustration. This won’t make sense until/if you play it, but for instance: being able to turn the last puzzle piece (to finish the puzzle) at the top right of a screen, while the “use stars to skip” button, is so close, that you can’t click one without the other. Or that objects you may need to use, could be that one tiny speck, hidden in a corner, unnoticeable, so you wander for 10 minutes, then give up, because it blends in too well, without spending hints to find that random object. Don’t get me wrong; this game is great! Engaging! I just think it needs some tweaking, before it’s a staple game, favored by those who would give up after five minutes of frustration. ;)
Haiku makes the best games

I am always thoroughly entertained by Haiku’s Adventure Escape games. I have played so many and I never get tired of them. It is challenging enough (unlike other games that are just way too easy it gets boring) but not impossible to figure out that (unlike those games where you will be “forced” to spend the money to buy stars for hints because there is no way you would get through the level). It’s perfect!
Needs some work
by A.muse.me on 2018/02/16 04:47
This was an enjoyable game overall,however, the story was at times laughable. The old man they helped was robbed by them of a few items, they go through all this trouble to find the elixir and then... Poof. A few of the puzzles acted on their own at times despite my not touching the screen. The clues for the puzzles were often too vague to use although their concept as puzzles seemed good. If you don't care about a story line and are really good at puzzles with vague clues, then you will enjoy this game.
4.5 star game
by AaronT AK on 2017/12/14 18:43
I'd give it 4.5 stars if I could, but I gave it 5 because I didn't want to give it a 4. The story was good, as seems to be the norm with Haiku. This was the fourth game I played from them, and they've still managed to make the puzzles and entire game unique, interesting, and fun. I am once again looking forward to the next one. The fact that these are free, have minimal ads, and give me such enjoyment lead me to leave reviews for each game I play, when I typically don't write reviews. P.S. Having a part where you play as a separated character was excellent. It'd be nice to see that happen more, perhaps. Forgot to mention that my items were placed on the bottom of the screen, instead of on the side like I think they're supposed to be....
Where is the logic
by Bunny Blackrose on 2019/09/03 20:44
I have been loving the adventure escape games but I can’t say the same about this particular one. There were more puzzles than story, and what puzzles there were most of them didn’t make sense. The hints were no help either, especially when I would end up using stars for clues that had absolutely nothing to do with the puzzle I was trying to solve. I nearly ran out of stars on this one because of how many I wasted on things I already knew. I usually use these to destress, but this just stressed me out. I would encourage others to play the other adventure escape games!
Fun and interesting!
by jcolney on 2019/11/25 04:54
So far so good! This game and others by the same company have been fun and exciting. The puzzles can be tricky but once you stop and think, and sometimes hindsight, they make a lot of sense. While dialogue can be a bit cheesy the characters are still interesting. The only real issue I’ve discovered is that when playing the games on my iPhone any object that’s close to the bottom of the screen is really hard to get without minimizing the game a hundred times.
Underwhelming
by Dark Guardian 9 on 2018/12/22 00:48
I thought the game had a pretty good story at first, but after beating the game, I thought the ending was rushed and anticlimactic. The puzzles are way too difficult. It got to the point where I didn’t know how to go about solving the puzzle without a walkthrough. I think there should have been a bit more explanation on some of the puzzles. Also you can spend stars you’ve collected to skip puzzles. This is a great feature, but the amount of stars it costs to skip certain puzzles is exorbitant considering you only earn 5 stars for completing a chapter. Overall, not the greatest game.
Classic adventure
by Jjhinnj on 2019/04/20 22:06
I was always a fan of the classic adventure games, like crystal cave, kings quest, etc. so many adventure games now are mostly hidden picture type games with little variety or story continuity. This is a game in the classic adventure vein - finding objects, figuring out how to use them, solving puzzles. My only quibble is you cannot save progress in the middle of a chapter, but the chapters (so far) are not too long.
Archaeologist aporoved
by America T. on 2019/10/18 22:57
I love this game. Smooth game play and great puzzles. I love the variety of puzzles involved in all the haiku games. Many times I see something based on archaeology and it’s just wrong. This however seems to be very well researched with some slight Exaggeration; think Indiana Jones movies vs. what Indy says in class in the beginning that archaeology is tedious. This is what archaeologists dream of doing but rarely what they actually get to do.
Love their gamers!
by MomMonster2 on 2017/09/17 20:36
This is the fifth Haiku game I've played in the last three weeks. I really enjoy them. I do wish they would auto save as each puzzle is solved rather than only at the end of the chapter. One game wouldn't reset when I didn't solve a puzzle correctly and I ended up having to quit the game and start the entire chapter over, but this was only a minor annoyance.
Frustrating !-update-
by THAT -1one-small-town-girl on 2018/07/18 08:33
I QUIT THIS GAME BECAUSE OF THE HORRIBLE GLITCHES! The only way to get past these glitches is to have stars BUT i refuse to give money to buy the stars you need to get past these glitches to a company that doesn’t have customer support to report these glitches . And fix them I want to give the game 5 stars but ! You get to this computer puzzle and you need to rotate the pieces but the app won’t let you. Then they have no customer support page/ contact area so your stuck on your own. Any time there is a glitch like this your out of luck !
Early chapter
by Gmanyxzuxujvvciiv on 2018/12/07 22:08
The beginning of the story is well conceived. Clues were fairly easy to find. Didn’t need to use any stars to the point where the bad guys held us up. The next section was very hard. I had to spend all my stars (20) to pass them. Couldn’t figure it out. Thought the mushroom challenge was very doable but took more time then I thought, but I liked it.
So far so Good!
by Dekejake on 2018/10/01 05:14
I have really enjoyed every Haiku game I’ve played, and although I’ve only completed the first chapter this game it appears that it will live up to the usual standard of the others. Puzzles are challenging but (typically) not impossible to figure out, and the story line is interesting with good character development. I’ll continue to specifically look for games from Haiku!
Love hate.
by Larry-qp on 2018/05/13 02:56
I love the concept and the adventure of this plot. A little mystical and adventurous. I agree with the others regarding to have to start over each level if I haven't finished it and want to take an extended pause. This is part of why the 4 star review. There is something else that feels disjointed in the flow of the game that I am used to in the Haiku games that I can't quite explain. Even still I'm having fun with it and that what counts. Congratulations.
It’s fun, but a glitch cost me $4.00 to bypass
by KimmyMonica on 2017/10/11 16:05
In the second mushroom escape with Tawa, the only option you need to to double step on a crack in the floor. Every time I did this for the first step, it would reset me. It’s other cracks didn’t do this. So I had to pay to get 25 stars to bypass it or I couldn’t keep playing. I like these games and have started playing all of them, but am a bit salty about the money issue with something that wasn’t my fault. Haiku, if you’re reading this. I want my $4!! Thanks
Best Free HO Game
by AMPoland on 2018/10/30 02:16
Came across these games while looking for HO games to play for a long trip. We are all hooked on them not only because they are free, but the puzzles are challenging and fun. If I can’t figure them out I let everyone else 8n the family try instead of using hints. Downloaded this game plus another one and honestly can say we have not been disappointed.
Good story and puzzles but ...
by Pjpeopleservices on 2018/07/11 05:40
The game glitches a lot. The bullhorn disappeared from the items screen and the chapter had to be started over to have it appear again. The tablet pieces wouldn’t turn without continually beating on each piece. Every time you leave the gane before the end of a chapter you have to restart the level - very frustrating. Good puzzles and story but it needs a save feature. Not up to the quality I’ve enjoyed in other games in this series.
Very Good Game
by Arthur7625 on 2020/09/12 07:20
This is a challenging game, which forces you to think in order to advance to the next level. Some of the puzzles are difficult, but there is also a greater sense of satisfaction when you figure out the solutions to the harder ones. Highly recommended as an enjoyable escape from boredom or a temporary reprieve from the worries of daily life.
Like room escape? Play Haiku.
by KevoAllanPoe on 2018/06/19 21:54
Great game, but the dialogue needs a bit of work and the ending is abrupt. As usual, another great FREE room escape game from Haiku. I like Bert; he’s like a Stuka with feathers but without the anti-semitism. I hope Haiku does more like these, maybe with an historical take. I think that would be neat, but ONLY if they research the topic. (Their take on police procedure was substandard but forgivable since these are about escaping rooms! Although...it does subtract from the story and inhibit gamer immersion.)
Fun!
by Samann518 on 2018/12/15 07:33
This game is fun, much like all of Haiku’s other games. Pretty easy and paced, lots of (almost) challenging puzzles, and it’s completely free! I really do enjoy this devs games, unlike most other free games, this ones ads are bearable and don’t make you sit thru endless 30 sec ads, these can be x’d out right away. Thanks for putting out decent games guys!
I love haiku games!
by Punk_Rocker323 on 2020/06/23 01:16
This is my 5th Haiku Game and My 5th adventure escape game! I love the challenge that the games bring and how it makes me think! The games can sometimes be difficult but that’s why I love them so much! If you’re not up for a challenge then this probably isn’t the game for you. Keep making games like this!
Not a fan of Starstruck but. Love the other ones
by 1129ej on 2019/01/23 07:43
Please make more games!!! Especially the one like asylum! I really wish you could pick the level of difficulty or have a varied of them. I loved allied spies and the carnival one. I didn’t like Starstruck at all. I want to enjoy thinking and figuring out a strategy not for it to give me a headache. Also please hurry and finish Trapmaker part 2! Starstruck is my last one and I need you guys to make some more please.
Another great haiku game
by ChristineMoon on 2017/08/27 18:04
I've loved every haiku game I have played so far, and this is no exception. They're easy enough to play, but challenging enough to keep it interesting. I love that there were no ads (other than between-Chapter pop ups for other haiku games), and it can be played for free. Haiku, please keep up the great work!!
Glitchy puzzles
by blueeyedmamma on 2018/06/17 03:19
Great game but had to restart several levels because the puzzles were glitchy; example: the circuit board puzzle would not let me rotate the circuits, therefore I could not complete the puzzle even though I knew how to do it. I ended up having to purchase stars just so I could skip the puzzle and move on. Very frustrating!!
Love haiku
by Borbs 4 Lyfe on 2017/09/25 00:44
I've played every game by Haiku and have loved them all. Great storylines, great plots! Sometimes the puzzles are a little easy but the difficult ones balance them out. My one critique for this game is the ending scene! Bert isn't shown making it out of the temple... I hope our little friend made it!
Yet another great Haiku puzzle!
by StrayTaco on 2018/04/15 16:37
I love playing these and solving them. The only drawback on this one is the length of time between chapters. I’ve had a couple times where I was most of the way through a chapter and had to go replay all the puzzles again because I didn’t quite get to the end. More frequent save points would be great.
Good challenge
by jenhan606 on 2017/07/12 06:52
I enjoy the escape games put out by Haiku games. I play a lot of escape games, and their games offer a good challenge. My only complaint is that their newer games don't have a save option. So if you spend a lot of time on one puzzle and have to come back later, you might have to do it over again. Great flow, great graphics!
I 💕 Haiku games,
by Suski33 on 2018/06/13 04:52
and so far this one seems to carry on the tradition of intriguing stories combined with fun/challenging puzzles. I’ve only hit a couple of their games that leave me tepid...for the most part, TERRIFIC! And, regardless of those few clunkers, I’m grateful that they have provided so many titles for free. Uncommonly innovative AND generous!
Favorite Haiku game
by auberrylane on 2018/07/19 03:40
I loved this as a departure from the other games that have a crime aspect! This one has no darkness, just pure adventure fun. The addition of Bert was fun and I was thrilled with the musical bowls puzzle at the end. Thoroughly enjoyed it!!! I hope they make one with Asian leads, since it looks like the main designers and programmers are Asian.
I love these games!!
by gfursis on 2018/08/21 04:31
I love these games!! I have played several of them and hope they come out with more! It's really fun and keeps me busy for hours if I have the time to sit and play. Great puzzles (some of them are extremely difficult to figure out some times)
Awesome Fun!
by Tabethajk on 2019/10/29 16:53
Finished Chapter 1 so far, and having an adventurous start. Growing up with Indiana Jones, I have such nostalgia for this great game. Puzzles have been easy so far, but, as with all Haiku Games, the challenge is soon to come! I haven’t had to refer to Appunwrapper’s walkthrough yet...Thank you for developing these great games!
Love Haiku Games
by HaikuGameLover on 2017/12/18 23:03
The puzzles are reasonably challenging. I can solve most on my own and only have to use the hint option a couple times. I always have enough stars if I need a hint. I’ve played all but one of their games and I have enjoyed all of them!
Fun Games, one complaint
by javagirl44 on 2018/09/15 12:42
I love these Haiku games. My only complaint is that it will make me start from the beginning of a level that I’ve nearly completed if I have to leave the game before I can finish it. Other than that, thanks for making free mystery adventure games! Fun stories and puzzles to solve!
Great game
by Haiku frequent player on 2018/08/02 04:36
Overall, another hit by Haiku Games. My only complaint is that almost every time I try to exit out of the ads before a chapter, it takes me to the App Store a few times before letting my press exit. I've noticed this in a few of their games. But overall, love this game!
Another fun Haiku game
by Siolnatine on 2017/09/12 12:32
This one was a little harder to follow at times, but maybe that's just because I played at bedtime. The mix of Mayan and Egyptian didn't come across as a fantasy culture so much as a just weird. Maybe next time don't borrow quite so specific elements?
Lost count of how many I’ve done
by EAS714 on 2020/07/08 22:07
I keep coming back to this game developer. The early games have much simpler puzzles compared to the recent games so sometimes I skip a puzzle or get help but I really enjoy them. Great job Haiku! Keep them coming.
So far So Good!
by TxQtee on 2018/12/22 19:21
I’ve only finished level 1 and I like!! Puzzles are different and challenging, not a boring hidden objects puzzle every time! I didn’t have to use any hints yet, I have a feeling I will need them as I progress. Great job so far developers! Keep it up!

I wish there were a way to earn extra stars if you are really clueless.
Nicely done
by deductive reasoner on 2020/10/06 04:57
The story lines stay true. A wonderful distraction from daily things. I’m liking almost all of Haiku’s games... except the Solve It stories, but that’s just something I’m not into. Nicely done team.
Love Haiku

Fun game but....
by hiccupkid on 2020/09/29 22:54
I love Haiku games and have played many of them. I like this one but I’m frustrated that if I stop playing the game for a while and come back to it, it starts over at the beginning of the chapter. I may have found all the objects and worked out many puzzles to open doorways or whatever, set it aside for an hour or 2 and then be made to go through finding all the objects and solving the puzzles again when I start playing again. Some of these puzzles are hard and I really don’t want to do them over and over just because I don’t spend hours at a time playing this game. I’ve never had this issue in other Haiku games.

Haiku games are FAB buuut...
by Brielen on 2020/09/20 02:33
Not my favorite Haiku game given the confusion about what to do with each puzzle. And the hints aren’t worth the stars. I know the clue is on the stone, so please don’t take 3 stars to state the obvious. Sheesh! That being said, I ADORE Haiku games. I want challenging but not without a clue that causes me to think and not just get frustrated with the lack of ingenuity.

Loving Haiku games...

I have played a number of this developer’s games now, and I love each more than the last. Fantastic challenging puzzles, and engaging story lines you want to keep following.

So far so good! Not so easy that it’s boring and not so hard that it’s frustrating.
Fun game
by Skyler grace the third on 2020/06/14 19:06
Fun game but pretty hard and if you run out of stars it’s expensive to get more without completing task also makes you follow on Facebook for free stars but some people don’t have Facebook and don’t want to make one just for a game
Almost made me want to pay
by jo27n on 2020/06/14 18:27
The puzzles get successively harder but always a good challenge.You have a good idea what to do you just have to connect the dots.
Great Game

I played this with my 7 and 5 year olds, and we had a great time figuring out all the puzzles together!! Love Haiku Games!

This game would be better if the instructions would clear. For a newbie it's confusing.

Puzzles are challenging, but just keep concentrating on them, trying different things. Everything you need is there. My progress has been saved, no problem. It is addicting and enjoyable.
Good so far

Like all the Haiku games this one makes you think & is a lot of fun.
So far so good.

Challenging, yet not impossible to figure out. Clues available for the tough ones! I enjoyed this game very much, and will try other games by this developer!
Love Haiku AE games, but this one was not my favorite.
by Ink_ninja on 2020/05/08 15:06
I have played several Haiku AE games and I love them. I love the challenge and uniqueness of the puzzles, and the stories are entertaining. I did enjoy playing Hidden Ruins, but it was not my favorite. Some of the puzzles were not clear. (The fish puzzle box was infuriating. And the yellow circuit puzzle fits more than one way, so I thought the game was glitched when I had completed it and nothing happened.) This particular game doesn’t save your progress within the chapter, so I had to repeat a few chapters. However I have noticed this is not an issue on their other games. What upset me most was spending stars to reveal hints that I had already passed - I’m sure this is an added issue of it not saving your progress. Overall, I enjoyed it but it could be better.

Fun game but....
by hiccupkid on 2020/09/29 22:54
I love Haiku games and have played many of them. I like this one but I’m frustrated that if I stop playing the game for a while and come back to it, it starts over at the beginning of the chapter. I may have found all the objects and worked out many puzzles to open doorways or whatever, set it aside for an hour or 2 and then be made to go through finding all the objects and solving the puzzles again when I start playing again. Some of these puzzles are hard and I really don’t want to do them over and over just because I don’t spend hours at a time playing this game. I’ve never had this issue in other Haiku games.
Doesn’t save your process.
by JPoff1224 on 2019/09/13 19:15
All the games I have played by this developer is fun. Some puzzles are challenging while others are exciting to play. I love all their games but this one drove me insane hence why I am giving it a 2 star rating. I would play the game, solve a really hard puzzle that I wanted to give up on and I finally get through it then move on. Move on to the next challenge where I would put my phone down and come back later and have to do the whole chapter over again. Errrrrrrr! So extremely frustrating. None of the other games do this. If you stopped in the middle of the chapter you can still pick up where you left off. Not this game for some reason. So again I would have to redo the challenging puzzle again, re-find everything again. I was on the last chapter of this game when it had me redo everything. I just deleted the game. I was not going to move those blocks around to get the stopper out again. Frustrating

SO FAR SO GOOD
by Jkzie on 2019/05/21 21:20
Only solved one chapter, so don't know what I am doing yet. But like the game and it seems to work well. Would help if there were some instructions. Will review again later when I figure out what I am doing. JKasie Chap.3. Still don't know all what I am doing, but progressing. Fun game. Don't bother with hints though. They aren't very helpful. Chap.5 Have not played for months. Returned to game and started at beginning. Still like the game but gave only 3 stars because: hints are stupid and don't help. Need to be more specific. Don't use ! The really bad thing tho is no save. I only have short times to play games, so have to repeat puzzles that I have solved because game is sent back to the beginning of the chapter if I don' have time to finish it in one sitting. BORING to repeat. So I stop playing the game. Too bad, because I basically like the game.
Haiku Makes Great Games but....
by Shop_Diva on 2019/01/26 05:15
I originally reviewed this after the first chapter (as requested); everything was going well and made sense to that point. It got much, much more difficult as it progressed and not everything was as clear as in the beginning. The puzzles, while offering great variety and not the same old same old, are often quite difficult and it is not always obvious what needs to be done. I like being challenged, but if I need to spend hours on one puzzle, I get irritated and just want to move on. That said, I have completed several games from this developer and keep coming back for more.
Haiku = Great games
by Neebwok on 2017/08/13 12:59
Initial review: I have only made it through 1 chapter of the Hidden Ruins game (without using hints although I was tempted for a moment)and it's no surprise to me that I'm already hooked on the story line and intriguing puzzles. Great game so far, but I wouldn't expect anything less from Haiku ;-) Final review: Finished the game! There were several very challenging puzzles along the way, which I did like. It's great to be able to find & earn stars...I needed to use them for hints when I got impatient with some of the puzzles. I liked the direction that the storyline took and how it end. Can't wait for another new Adventure Escape game!
Great Game... BUT.....
by dawnn510 on 2018/02/19 00:29
The only reason I am giving this game 4 stars instead of 5 is because it made me re-do nearly every single level, over and over! Every time I had to stop playing, even thy I had completed a challenge—or even completed an entire level—when I went back into it, it started the entire level OVER again! That got seriously FRUSTRATING!! Some of the levels I had to do over & over 3,4, even 5 times because of this! Every puzzle over & over! That’s ridiculous!! But, other than that, it was a great game and very challenging. If I had only had to figure out each puzzle only one time instead of 4 or 6 times, it would have made the game WAYYYY better!!
Haiku has awesome games
by Modewoman79 on 2017/12/14 03:00
This is the 4th haiku game I’ve played , and I have to say I am addicted !! Their puzzles are fun and challenging , the best thing I love about Haiku games is that they’re free. Legit free, not like other game developers where they say it’s free, but after the first chapter it’s .... to unlock the next chapter purchase for $2.99 . I’ve played games where I’m really enjoying the game and the puzzles and BAM .. to continue to the next chapter and unlock the game it cost $6.99 . And I delete it because I don’t want to pay $7.00 for a game . So thank you Haiku for making free games that are challenging and fun to play.
No WiFi Game
by Widderune on 2020/03/14 01:46
This game plays like a escape game, but it has a plot with cutscenes (hence, Adventure Escape). Many of the puzzles can be solved with ease, but the developers leave enough difficult puzzles for you to try and figure out (the hard puzzles are usually at the end of a chapter). You can find and collect stars to use as currency for answers, but try not to use them unless it is necessary. The best part (of course) is you do not need any WiFi to play this game. Haiku Games craft their apps rather well. No disappointments so far.
As good as the others, but there are a few glitches
by Tuesday Patience on 2018/05/12 05:38
I’ve enjoyed this game as much as all the other Haiku games, but I have gotten tripped up several times because I can’t get the game to recognize when I click on an item. This has made me question what I’m doing and waste hints. I prefer to not use hints at all if I can help it, but I’ve had to on this one - only to find out I’m doing it right but the game isn’t responding. But this is a great story and keeps my interest, so I’m still doing 5 stars!
When it says free it's not a joke AND it's worth playing
by l2awkism on 2017/09/13 09:49
That's the main sentiment to get from this. Sure, it's not as long as the money games, but these are worth playing and not too difficult. Great for passing the time and not wanting to throw your phone constantly. I've played 4 games by this developer so far and each one has gotten better and/or maintained the quality of the others. Thanks for making fun adventure escape games without the usual tricks :)
I give it a 4 because...
by cpabound on 2018/05/06 18:02
I give it a 4 because it asked me to write a review after the first chapter to get 5 stars in return. Well, not exactly what I like to do (write a review in exchange for something), and it is a bit early in the game to ask for a review. I need to play it a bit longer to give better feedback. But, so far it has been a good game. Challenging puzzles and haven’t seen any glitches yet. I hope I don’t, or my opinion of the game will drop very quickly. I would recommend the game. It’s worth playing though the first chapter so far.
Fun, but could use Improvements
by Cam Kat on 2018/07/29 20:19
I love these little Haiku games; they have interesting puzzles, fun storylines, and are more involved than an I-spy, point-and-click. However, in this game in particular, I’ve met with a lot of interface and mechanics frustration. This won’t make sense until/if you play it, but for instance: being able to turn the last puzzle piece (to finish the puzzle) at the top right of a screen, while the “use stars to skip” button, is so close, that you can’t click one without the other. Or that objects you may need to use, could be that one tiny speck, hidden in a corner, unnoticeable, so you wander for 10 minutes, then give up, because it blends in too well, without spending hints to find that random object. Don’t get me wrong; this game is great! Engaging! I just think it needs some tweaking, before it’s a staple game, favored by those who would give up after five minutes of frustration. ;)
Haiku makes the best games
by GuardianZero on 2019/01/09 16:00
I am always thoroughly entertained by Haiku’s Adventure Escape games. I have played so many and I never get tired of them. It is challenging enough (unlike other games that are just way too easy it gets boring) but not impossible to figure out that (unlike those games where you will be “forced” to spend the money to buy stars for hints because there is no way you would get through the level). It’s perfect!
Needs some work
by A.muse.me on 2018/02/16 04:47
This was an enjoyable game overall,however, the story was at times laughable. The old man they helped was robbed by them of a few items, they go through all this trouble to find the elixir and then... Poof. A few of the puzzles acted on their own at times despite my not touching the screen. The clues for the puzzles were often too vague to use although their concept as puzzles seemed good. If you don't care about a story line and are really good at puzzles with vague clues, then you will enjoy this game.
4.5 star game
by AaronT AK on 2017/12/14 18:43
I'd give it 4.5 stars if I could, but I gave it 5 because I didn't want to give it a 4. The story was good, as seems to be the norm with Haiku. This was the fourth game I played from them, and they've still managed to make the puzzles and entire game unique, interesting, and fun. I am once again looking forward to the next one. The fact that these are free, have minimal ads, and give me such enjoyment lead me to leave reviews for each game I play, when I typically don't write reviews. P.S. Having a part where you play as a separated character was excellent. It'd be nice to see that happen more, perhaps. Forgot to mention that my items were placed on the bottom of the screen, instead of on the side like I think they're supposed to be....
Where is the logic
by Bunny Blackrose on 2019/09/03 20:44
I have been loving the adventure escape games but I can’t say the same about this particular one. There were more puzzles than story, and what puzzles there were most of them didn’t make sense. The hints were no help either, especially when I would end up using stars for clues that had absolutely nothing to do with the puzzle I was trying to solve. I nearly ran out of stars on this one because of how many I wasted on things I already knew. I usually use these to destress, but this just stressed me out. I would encourage others to play the other adventure escape games!
Fun and interesting!
by jcolney on 2019/11/25 04:54
So far so good! This game and others by the same company have been fun and exciting. The puzzles can be tricky but once you stop and think, and sometimes hindsight, they make a lot of sense. While dialogue can be a bit cheesy the characters are still interesting. The only real issue I’ve discovered is that when playing the games on my iPhone any object that’s close to the bottom of the screen is really hard to get without minimizing the game a hundred times.
Underwhelming
by Dark Guardian 9 on 2018/12/22 00:48
I thought the game had a pretty good story at first, but after beating the game, I thought the ending was rushed and anticlimactic. The puzzles are way too difficult. It got to the point where I didn’t know how to go about solving the puzzle without a walkthrough. I think there should have been a bit more explanation on some of the puzzles. Also you can spend stars you’ve collected to skip puzzles. This is a great feature, but the amount of stars it costs to skip certain puzzles is exorbitant considering you only earn 5 stars for completing a chapter. Overall, not the greatest game.
Classic adventure
by Jjhinnj on 2019/04/20 22:06
I was always a fan of the classic adventure games, like crystal cave, kings quest, etc. so many adventure games now are mostly hidden picture type games with little variety or story continuity. This is a game in the classic adventure vein - finding objects, figuring out how to use them, solving puzzles. My only quibble is you cannot save progress in the middle of a chapter, but the chapters (so far) are not too long.
Archaeologist aporoved
by America T. on 2019/10/18 22:57
I love this game. Smooth game play and great puzzles. I love the variety of puzzles involved in all the haiku games. Many times I see something based on archaeology and it’s just wrong. This however seems to be very well researched with some slight Exaggeration; think Indiana Jones movies vs. what Indy says in class in the beginning that archaeology is tedious. This is what archaeologists dream of doing but rarely what they actually get to do.
Love their gamers!
by MomMonster2 on 2017/09/17 20:36
This is the fifth Haiku game I've played in the last three weeks. I really enjoy them. I do wish they would auto save as each puzzle is solved rather than only at the end of the chapter. One game wouldn't reset when I didn't solve a puzzle correctly and I ended up having to quit the game and start the entire chapter over, but this was only a minor annoyance.
Frustrating !-update-
by THAT -1one-small-town-girl on 2018/07/18 08:33
I QUIT THIS GAME BECAUSE OF THE HORRIBLE GLITCHES! The only way to get past these glitches is to have stars BUT i refuse to give money to buy the stars you need to get past these glitches to a company that doesn’t have customer support to report these glitches . And fix them I want to give the game 5 stars but ! You get to this computer puzzle and you need to rotate the pieces but the app won’t let you. Then they have no customer support page/ contact area so your stuck on your own. Any time there is a glitch like this your out of luck !
Early chapter
by Gmanyxzuxujvvciiv on 2018/12/07 22:08
The beginning of the story is well conceived. Clues were fairly easy to find. Didn’t need to use any stars to the point where the bad guys held us up. The next section was very hard. I had to spend all my stars (20) to pass them. Couldn’t figure it out. Thought the mushroom challenge was very doable but took more time then I thought, but I liked it.
So far so Good!
by Dekejake on 2018/10/01 05:14
I have really enjoyed every Haiku game I’ve played, and although I’ve only completed the first chapter this game it appears that it will live up to the usual standard of the others. Puzzles are challenging but (typically) not impossible to figure out, and the story line is interesting with good character development. I’ll continue to specifically look for games from Haiku!
Love hate.
by Larry-qp on 2018/05/13 02:56
I love the concept and the adventure of this plot. A little mystical and adventurous. I agree with the others regarding to have to start over each level if I haven't finished it and want to take an extended pause. This is part of why the 4 star review. There is something else that feels disjointed in the flow of the game that I am used to in the Haiku games that I can't quite explain. Even still I'm having fun with it and that what counts. Congratulations.
It’s fun, but a glitch cost me $4.00 to bypass
by KimmyMonica on 2017/10/11 16:05
In the second mushroom escape with Tawa, the only option you need to to double step on a crack in the floor. Every time I did this for the first step, it would reset me. It’s other cracks didn’t do this. So I had to pay to get 25 stars to bypass it or I couldn’t keep playing. I like these games and have started playing all of them, but am a bit salty about the money issue with something that wasn’t my fault. Haiku, if you’re reading this. I want my $4!! Thanks
Best Free HO Game
by AMPoland on 2018/10/30 02:16
Came across these games while looking for HO games to play for a long trip. We are all hooked on them not only because they are free, but the puzzles are challenging and fun. If I can’t figure them out I let everyone else 8n the family try instead of using hints. Downloaded this game plus another one and honestly can say we have not been disappointed.
Good story and puzzles but ...
by Pjpeopleservices on 2018/07/11 05:40
The game glitches a lot. The bullhorn disappeared from the items screen and the chapter had to be started over to have it appear again. The tablet pieces wouldn’t turn without continually beating on each piece. Every time you leave the gane before the end of a chapter you have to restart the level - very frustrating. Good puzzles and story but it needs a save feature. Not up to the quality I’ve enjoyed in other games in this series.
Very Good Game
by Arthur7625 on 2020/09/12 07:20
This is a challenging game, which forces you to think in order to advance to the next level. Some of the puzzles are difficult, but there is also a greater sense of satisfaction when you figure out the solutions to the harder ones. Highly recommended as an enjoyable escape from boredom or a temporary reprieve from the worries of daily life.
Like room escape? Play Haiku.
by KevoAllanPoe on 2018/06/19 21:54
Great game, but the dialogue needs a bit of work and the ending is abrupt. As usual, another great FREE room escape game from Haiku. I like Bert; he’s like a Stuka with feathers but without the anti-semitism. I hope Haiku does more like these, maybe with an historical take. I think that would be neat, but ONLY if they research the topic. (Their take on police procedure was substandard but forgivable since these are about escaping rooms! Although...it does subtract from the story and inhibit gamer immersion.)
Fun!
by Samann518 on 2018/12/15 07:33
This game is fun, much like all of Haiku’s other games. Pretty easy and paced, lots of (almost) challenging puzzles, and it’s completely free! I really do enjoy this devs games, unlike most other free games, this ones ads are bearable and don’t make you sit thru endless 30 sec ads, these can be x’d out right away. Thanks for putting out decent games guys!
I love haiku games!
by Punk_Rocker323 on 2020/06/23 01:16
This is my 5th Haiku Game and My 5th adventure escape game! I love the challenge that the games bring and how it makes me think! The games can sometimes be difficult but that’s why I love them so much! If you’re not up for a challenge then this probably isn’t the game for you. Keep making games like this!
Not a fan of Starstruck but. Love the other ones
by 1129ej on 2019/01/23 07:43
Please make more games!!! Especially the one like asylum! I really wish you could pick the level of difficulty or have a varied of them. I loved allied spies and the carnival one. I didn’t like Starstruck at all. I want to enjoy thinking and figuring out a strategy not for it to give me a headache. Also please hurry and finish Trapmaker part 2! Starstruck is my last one and I need you guys to make some more please.
Another great haiku game
by ChristineMoon on 2017/08/27 18:04
I've loved every haiku game I have played so far, and this is no exception. They're easy enough to play, but challenging enough to keep it interesting. I love that there were no ads (other than between-Chapter pop ups for other haiku games), and it can be played for free. Haiku, please keep up the great work!!
Glitchy puzzles
by blueeyedmamma on 2018/06/17 03:19
Great game but had to restart several levels because the puzzles were glitchy; example: the circuit board puzzle would not let me rotate the circuits, therefore I could not complete the puzzle even though I knew how to do it. I ended up having to purchase stars just so I could skip the puzzle and move on. Very frustrating!!
Love haiku
by Borbs 4 Lyfe on 2017/09/25 00:44
I've played every game by Haiku and have loved them all. Great storylines, great plots! Sometimes the puzzles are a little easy but the difficult ones balance them out. My one critique for this game is the ending scene! Bert isn't shown making it out of the temple... I hope our little friend made it!
Yet another great Haiku puzzle!
by StrayTaco on 2018/04/15 16:37
I love playing these and solving them. The only drawback on this one is the length of time between chapters. I’ve had a couple times where I was most of the way through a chapter and had to go replay all the puzzles again because I didn’t quite get to the end. More frequent save points would be great.
Good challenge
by jenhan606 on 2017/07/12 06:52
I enjoy the escape games put out by Haiku games. I play a lot of escape games, and their games offer a good challenge. My only complaint is that their newer games don't have a save option. So if you spend a lot of time on one puzzle and have to come back later, you might have to do it over again. Great flow, great graphics!
I 💕 Haiku games,

and so far this one seems to carry on the tradition of intriguing stories combined with fun/challenging puzzles. I’ve only hit a couple of their games that leave me tepid...for the most part, TERRIFIC! And, regardless of those few clunkers, I’m grateful that they have provided so many titles for free. Uncommonly innovative AND generous!
Favorite Haiku game

I loved this as a departure from the other games that have a crime aspect! This one has no darkness, just pure adventure fun. The addition of Bert was fun and I was thrilled with the musical bowls puzzle at the end. Thoroughly enjoyed it!!! I hope they make one with Asian leads, since it looks like the main designers and programmers are Asian.
I love these games!!

I love these games!! I have played several of them and hope they come out with more! It's really fun and keeps me busy for hours if I have the time to sit and play. Great puzzles (some of them are extremely difficult to figure out some times)
Awesome Fun!

Finished Chapter 1 so far, and having an adventurous start. Growing up with Indiana Jones, I have such nostalgia for this great game. Puzzles have been easy so far, but, as with all Haiku Games, the challenge is soon to come! I haven’t had to refer to Appunwrapper’s walkthrough yet...Thank you for developing these great games!
Love Haiku Games

The puzzles are reasonably challenging. I can solve most on my own and only have to use the hint option a couple times. I always have enough stars if I need a hint. I’ve played all but one of their games and I have enjoyed all of them!
Fun Games, one complaint
by javagirl44 on 2018/09/15 12:42
I love these Haiku games. My only complaint is that it will make me start from the beginning of a level that I’ve nearly completed if I have to leave the game before I can finish it. Other than that, thanks for making free mystery adventure games! Fun stories and puzzles to solve!
Great game

Overall, another hit by Haiku Games. My only complaint is that almost every time I try to exit out of the ads before a chapter, it takes me to the App Store a few times before letting my press exit. I've noticed this in a few of their games. But overall, love this game!
Another fun Haiku game

This one was a little harder to follow at times, but maybe that's just because I played at bedtime. The mix of Mayan and Egyptian didn't come across as a fantasy culture so much as a just weird. Maybe next time don't borrow quite so specific elements?
Lost count of how many I’ve done

I keep coming back to this game developer. The early games have much simpler puzzles compared to the recent games so sometimes I skip a puzzle or get help but I really enjoy them. Great job Haiku! Keep them coming.
So far So Good!

I’ve only finished level 1 and I like!! Puzzles are different and challenging, not a boring hidden objects puzzle every time! I didn’t have to use any hints yet, I have a feeling I will need them as I progress. Great job so far developers! Keep it up!
