Hard but not too hard. Hints aren’t the best. A lot of fun. Have to look up on the parts I cannot get past even with hint.

by Mrsbstn04 on 2020/09/14 21:26
This was the last of the haiku games to play for me. I absolutely loved the rest of them. This one was a bit different. As a haiku game I don’t think it was up to par but as a puzzle solving game it great.
Fun albeit a bit cheesy

Good game but..,
by Oleanderbush on 2020/08/29 19:37
I cannot get past the fiery steps and because it is in between scenes there is no opt out even with stars. I have a screen protector and there is so much pressure required to activate a step it can’t be done quickly. An option to skip would be ok or fixing the sensitivity. iPhone.
Worst one of the lot.
by Fsxcghhgddrhggddd on 2020/08/27 08:45
These guys make much better games than this one. So far this game is the only one where there is no clue to some puzzles. If you have to shake your device to make a key fall then put it in a tutorial at least once. Most of their other games are much better.
pretty simple

The puzzles are fun but needs some updates to compare the quality of more recent games.
Meh
by MichinAlien on 2020/08/18 02:34
The story (as far as I got) was decent and somewhat funny. Unfortunately, the hints are poor and serve as directions for the mini games, meaning the directions aren’t free (which is pretty messed up). Stars are easily found; however hints have a high and unanticipated cost. Basically, if you get stuck at any of the mini games and don’t have enough stars, you’re forced to either give up on the game or pay money for stars. I personally don’t find this game worth actual money and would have preferred to just watch ads to earn stars. The mini games were a fun and interesting addition to an escape game, and the artwork is nicely done too! It still feels like this game was purely created to farm money out of people. Worth the time but not worth the money.

I’ve done several of these games and am making my way backwards through them. Hints are not helpful, and the mini games are harder than the actual mystery. Often, the locks are hard and no where to see where the clue is, even after looking online. There was no way to know I had to shake my iPad to get the cauldron to shake. The company has done a better job since. I like this company and the concept. Worth doing when you are bored.

I did enjoy this game. I love all the Haiku games. I love the puzzles and storylines and I think all the games are fun. This is the first time I have given 4 stars. I could tell this must have been one of the earlier games because things have definitely elevated from this to the adventure escape mysteries which were the first I played. I think it’s great to see how much they are truly developing as creators with each mystery. The reason I gave this one 4 stars was the hints. These are the least helpful out of any of the games. For some of the harder puzzles it’s really frustrating because they give 3 very very obvious hints where you are like yes obviously I am looking at that but then to get to an actual helpful hint takes like 15 stars. That’s the only grievance. Great job overall though!
Challenging yet buggy
by Shugo3 on 2020/06/06 03:15
Love all these games but the mini game is buggy and laggy and just unplayable. The marble game is not responsive enough and the boulder game is impossible to move over two spaces once it gets faster... so frustrating and I will not buy stars to get past it.

Glitchy
by rhondatravels on 2020/05/18 02:33
The game is fun but it has lots of bugs. Often a piece would stop moving or a correct code wouldn’t open a door. I had to quit the game and start chapters over again several times to get past the glitch. That was the only good think about the “feature” that if you left the game mid level i always had to start the level over again.

New but not as fun
by Celticdragonlord on 2020/04/16 15:15
I like the theme, and that they are trying new animations. Some of the puzzles are new and different, so it shakes it up a bit. Physically shaking the phone was novel. The puzzles get repetitive, though. Instead of reusing the number combination, I’d like to see more variety. One puzzle had no immediate answer, and the marble puzzles were buggy and non-responsive. All in all, I got some fun out of it, but not the same quality as in some of the other Haiku games.

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.

Terrible Mini Games Ruin It
by McStevensonenov on 2020/01/21 05:07
I greatly enjoy all of this developer’s games, but this one is very disappointing. The ball mazes are extremely clunky, and the boulder dodge is the worst. Swiping sends you the opposite direction you would expect, and the delay between movements is so long that to go from one side to the other you have to do the first movement before the boulder is even past you. The game is very clunky overall, much like a low quality flash game in your browser. I’d love to see the developer revisit and rework this game to at least take some of the clunkiness out. Until then, I would suggest fans (and everyone else) just skip it.

by Tahlula Jane on 2019/03/24 15:32
I’m on the very last chapter and the apple weighing game is messed up! You’re supposed to choose the heaviest apple out of I think 10 apples after 2 times using the scale to weigh...and you need to do this 3 times in a row choosing the correct apple. Only, if you choose the wrong apple (this is a difficult mini game), the apples graphic no longer separates into 10 apples, but stays as one apple asking you to choose which apples to weight. Well, you can’t choose because it only shows 1 apple!!! To get out I have to start chapter all the way over again!!! (Which I have done 3 times!!!) or pay $5 to skip puzzle!!!! I quit. Fix the bug please. I will not pay for a messed up game:-(

No Explanations
by EbertofGames on 2019/07/30 19:37
Some reviewers have called this game easier than the other Haiku puzzle games. That’s only true if you’re very familiar with the developer’s other apps. Unlike most other Haiku apps, this one does not give the “free hint” to explain the objective of puzzles. This is frustrating because some puzzles are very easy to overthink. Usually, the solutions are much easier than an experienced puzzle solver would expect. Not to mention, you have to perform random actions like tilting or shaking your device which seems totally out of place. Also, the mini games are ridiculously hard. The boulder game is a nightmare because there is a lag and the swiping is counterintuitive. This is one of Haiku’s older apps, and it shows.
Could be a lot better
by ...Therese... on 2019/09/23 23:06
The response is terrible ... in act one, you have to tap the weights several times (sometimes 5 or 6 times) in order to even pick up the weights ... rolling the marble in act 3, also for example, if you hold the phone tilted to the right, the marble continues to roll to the left far too long even when rolling very slowly ... same goes for rolling up and down – any direction really. Additionally, it is offered that you can skip a puzzle if you “like” the game on Facebook ... that having been done I was unable to skip the puzzle ... only other option: purchase stars! Not this time! Developers please fix the response sensitivity and the issue of getting hint stars for more stars and a better review.

Buggy. Freezes. And bad puzzles
by Miss_Tish on 2019/11/10 17:02
I have enjoyed almost all of the other Haiku games. But this one frustrated me to no end. The program would freeze so often, I couldn’t tell if an object I touched was just background decoration, or if I had to wait a second and try again. I had to use 35 stars to skip the boulder challenge because I couldn’t swipe during the many times it froze. In addition to that, several puzzles made no sense. And I’m pretty sure one of them was actually wrong (one digit should have been “4”, but the puzzle accepted “7” instead). I would recommend ANY of the haiku puzzles before this one. Most of them are great. Sadly this one was a big miss.
Simpler, yet frustrating
by Fun for years on 2018/01/24 13:51
Love all of Haikus games, and while this one is a bit simpler in the puzzle solving department, some of the mini games are more frustrating than they are worth. The boulders in the third act were rediculous. The lag and unresponsiveness of the swiping made me spend all my stars just to skip it. The maze puzzles with the balls were almost as bad. 5 star otherwise, it would be a great game for new comers to this genre. But save your stars to skip those pesky mini games!
Not my favorite, but still worth the free download
by Tasz mom on 2018/12/14 17:46
I love all the escape games by Haiku, although this is my least favorite. Might be because of the cartoony characters or the boring storyline, or maybe this was one of their first games and it’s not done quite as well as their other games, but besides that the puzzles are fun and I hope they come up with more escape games soon!
Good!
by Krotaidptelgd on 2018/07/25 20:14
Challenging puzzles, intriguing plot, and good graphics. So I downloaded this forever ago, and replayed it recently. I found it very fun, and I loved the story line and plot, it’s very interesting. And for a game that’s more 2D, it was illustrated and worked very good!mSome of the puzzles were simple, some were harder to solve, and some outright baffled me. I very much enjoyed this, and would love to see a sequel game for it! I would definitely recommend downloading this game!
Best games ever!
by Russ3382 on 2019/07/29 07:07
I enjoy all of your escape adventure escape games! No one else can make them like your team does. Awesome storylines with amazing graphics and the best assortment of puzzles to keep me glued for hours. I’m just waiting patiently for updates to new games from you! I rate other games compared to you and leave reviews for them and other players to search Haiku games to see how it should be done!
Kind of frustrated with the boulders section
by JessAkOop on 2017/11/05 05:10
It feels like the game isn't responding quickly enough, in particular when you need to go quickly from the left to the right sides. Maybe arrows rather than a swiping motion? I'd much rather just have the mind games too instead of dexterity, as another reviewer mentioned. I like the game, but am super frustrated right now. The puzzles are challenging and clever, though sometime stuff is hard to read on the screen because it's super tiny. *grumble*
Fun
by Nursecmc on 2017/11/05 00:42
All Haiku games are great! This one is no exception. Once you play one Haiku Adventure Escape game, you'll find yourself downloading all of them. They're quite addictive. Only one ad in between levels which is a flash ad, not a video. Hints are free with stars which are easily earned/found. Nice way to pass time. Some puzzles are rather challenging while others are quite simple....a nice mix. Enjoy!
Easy, yet fun... so far
by Lou in Louisville on 2019/09/15 14:41
This is the second game by this developer that I’ve tried so far and they both have been fun but this one seems different and a lot easier than the first one, which was one of the trap maker, Kate Gray mysteries. I’m still at the beginning of this one so we’ll see how well I like this one. to be continued...
Like most of the game
by Sam2Sar on 2017/10/15 19:25
The puzzles are fun but there a several timed sections in this game. If you don’t swipe fast enough or if you have a screen cover on the response is slow. Also it seems to lag after a swipe which can cause a failure and having to restart the level. It would be nice if the timed events were slower, shorter or made easier after many failures. Love the other games that don’t have the timed sections.

Love all these games but the mini game is buggy and laggy and just unplayable. The marble game is not responsive enough and the boulder game is impossible to move over two spaces once it gets faster... so frustrating and I will not buy stars to get past it.
Adventure Escape Series
by LeLeNyoNyo0701 on 2018/10/28 00:52
I love all the Adventure Escape games of the Adventure Escape game series by Haiku. Even though a few puzzles are extremely challenging (and annoying at times), I still love the game. Graphics are very well-done. Gameplays aren’t too difficult for the most part. It’s so much fun and addicting. Please make more!!!
Great game...hours of fun
by Kasey2065 on 2019/06/07 00:38
I love your games. I get so sick of people leaving bad review because they might have to pay 99 cents or so. They don’t understand all the work that goes into these games. Game creators need to eat too. Thanks for all the hard work you all do for my enjoyment!
Good game
by Katbearlol on 2018/12/19 16:30
Good game fun so far! Love the plot yet again cute to. I just hope I don’t need to skip a few puzzles cuz some of the other games I played were hard For me and the walkthrough couldn’t have helped me lol, but I still love these games from these developers please keep them coming
Adventure Escape games are addicting!
by cmtcourt on 2019/10/04 02:48
I do not normally play games on a console or my phone, but this game is absolutely addicting! I can’t stop playing them. I have never played a game that was so much fun, had such great graphics, and was so well thought out. I give this game an A++.
Like this one
by Lynnguistics on 2020/05/29 00:36
I like the game and storyline. It’s a little glitchy sometimes and controls are slow moving in a few of the mini games. But overall I have enjoyed playing this one
Worth playing
by E_.E on 2019/02/03 17:39
Enjoying playing but frustrated with lack of guidance with what is found in some rooms and suppose to help you solve puzzles. Some extremely difficult where I don’t think anyone could solve without using cheating hints...others way too easy. Goes from one extreme to the other.
Buggy and hints don’t keep up with your progress
by Kindlegamer on 2018/10/20 03:33
I don’t know if this is an earlier game from Haiku, it it is full of bugs, or poorly designed compared to the others. Hints are given for things you’ve already done, and some of the puzzles just don’t do what they are supposed to do. (Full bucket won’t go on pillar for example). This one should be dropped or fixed.
Like the series
by Danny#61 on 2017/10/10 01:54
Played all of their adventure games and find them to be fun. Just started this one. Graphics are not as nice as the previous games. Will report back after I get a little further.
Some puzzles highly stressful!!! Not relaxing
by slweber186 on 2019/02/25 21:33
I love the game. It’s a bit easier than some of the others. But some of the puzzles are just plain nerve-wracking! I have to skip those, which I don’t like doing.
LOVE IT
by StarrySarah101 on 2018/10/16 04:16
I love all the levels and all the puzzles even though they can get very frustrating sometimes. I think everyone should have this game. Btw have you noticed that the girl with the orange curly hair looks a lot like Disney princess Merida?
Not to hard
by Char2459 on 2019/01/07 15:07
Keep your interest. So far games are fun and makes you think but after a little while you can figure them out. Having fun so far.
Fun
by VaseGator on 2019/03/06 02:08
I do these to relax, so I enjoy these types of games that are not too hard nor too easy. At times it can be tough to figure out certain parts or maybe I'm missing something. LOL I like it
Haiku is great, but don’t bother with this one
by FenderSaleen on 2018/06/07 03:36
As others have mentioned, there is a lot of lag which causes the mini games to be extremely frustrating and almost impossible. Writing on the walls is difficult to read. I love the other escape games from haiku just not this one.
Good game but..,
by Oleanderbush on 2020/08/29 19:37
I cannot get past the fiery steps and because it is in between scenes there is no opt out even with stars. I have a screen protector and there is so much pressure required to activate a step it can’t be done quickly. An option to skip would be ok or fixing the sensitivity. iPhone.
Fun and Challenging
by Heiki Jo on 2018/11/23 08:27
I love all the Haiku games and I like this one as well, although it is my least favorite due to cartoon graphics, cheesy storyline, and confusing puzzles...I had to do the walk through for several scenes, which I do not like to do. Still, I enjoyed it and am excited for more games.
The ball roll maze acts a bit funky
by dickbuckis1 on 2020/10/07 04:00
Sometimes i won’t even be close to going into a hole and the game will decided to put it in anyways. Can something be done about this
Love the haiku games
by Lljjbvfyedvdeiyesaxvbhhgyuk on 2018/01/30 22:16
Agree with the previous review. Simpler but mini games are crazy hard. Again due to the lag time of swiping on my device.
Haiku(ish)
by Mrsbstn04 on 2020/09/14 21:26
This was the last of the haiku games to play for me. I absolutely loved the rest of them. This one was a bit different. As a haiku game I don’t think it was up to par but as a puzzle solving game it great.
Great game, but..
by Gamergirl_101 on 2018/08/01 17:21
I love games like this but... in the kitchen I had to use basically all my stars to skip the cooking thing because when I would try to shake the pot I would have to click multiple times which would end up with me losing.
Worst one of the lot.
by Fsxcghhgddrhggddd on 2020/08/27 08:45
These guys make much better games than this one. So far this game is the only one where there is no clue to some puzzles. If you have to shake your device to make a key fall then put it in a tutorial at least once. Most of their other games are much better.
Kind of easy but fun

I am a huge fan of Haiku games. This is probably my least favorite of all of them. That’s not saying that much though, because I truly love them all.

by Nakstacks on 2020/08/19 00:05
The puzzles are fun but needs some updates to compare the quality of more recent games.
Fun enough, but not as challenging as the others
by MomMonster2 on 2017/09/27 14:40
This feels a bit like a "Brave" knockoff and geared toward a younger audience than the others in the series. Still, it's better than most escape games so far, so I'll play the it to he end.
New but not as fun
by Celticdragonlord on 2020/04/16 15:15
I like the theme, and that they are trying new animations. Some of the puzzles are new and different, so it shakes it up a bit. Physically shaking the phone was novel. The puzzles get repetitive, though. Instead of reusing the number combination, I’d like to see more variety. One puzzle had no immediate answer, and the marble puzzles were buggy and non-responsive. All in all, I got some fun out of it, but not the same quality as in some of the other Haiku games.
Glitches galore
by kikidadoo on 2018/07/06 01:02
The marble roll game kept glitching; my ball would go down a hole and not return, so game over. Couldn’t finish. Restarted several times, even redownloaded it. Then, the boulder roll game glitched and I could never pass it. Reloaded again, but same issues. Love all the other haiku games. Did every single one, but not this one! Uggggggg

by MichinAlien on 2020/08/18 02:34
The story (as far as I got) was decent and somewhat funny. Unfortunately, the hints are poor and serve as directions for the mini games, meaning the directions aren’t free (which is pretty messed up). Stars are easily found; however hints have a high and unanticipated cost. Basically, if you get stuck at any of the mini games and don’t have enough stars, you’re forced to either give up on the game or pay money for stars. I personally don’t find this game worth actual money and would have preferred to just watch ads to earn stars. The mini games were a fun and interesting addition to an escape game, and the artwork is nicely done too! It still feels like this game was purely created to farm money out of people. Worth the time but not worth the money.

by Breeina on 2020/07/07 22:09
I’ve done several of these games and am making my way backwards through them. Hints are not helpful, and the mini games are harder than the actual mystery. Often, the locks are hard and no where to see where the clue is, even after looking online. There was no way to know I had to shake my iPad to get the cauldron to shake. The company has done a better job since. I like this company and the concept. Worth doing when you are bored.

by BreezyB7689463 on 2020/06/06 09:36
I did enjoy this game. I love all the Haiku games. I love the puzzles and storylines and I think all the games are fun. This is the first time I have given 4 stars. I could tell this must have been one of the earlier games because things have definitely elevated from this to the adventure escape mysteries which were the first I played. I think it’s great to see how much they are truly developing as creators with each mystery. The reason I gave this one 4 stars was the hints. These are the least helpful out of any of the games. For some of the harder puzzles it’s really frustrating because they give 3 very very obvious hints where you are like yes obviously I am looking at that but then to get to an actual helpful hint takes like 15 stars. That’s the only grievance. Great job overall though!

by rhondatravels on 2020/05/18 02:33
The game is fun but it has lots of bugs. Often a piece would stop moving or a correct code wouldn’t open a door. I had to quit the game and start chapters over again several times to get past the glitch. That was the only good think about the “feature” that if you left the game mid level i always had to start the level over again.
Awesome!

by Widderune on 2020/03/14 01:47
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.

by McStevensonenov on 2020/01/21 05:07
I greatly enjoy all of this developer’s games, but this one is very disappointing. The ball mazes are extremely clunky, and the boulder dodge is the worst. Swiping sends you the opposite direction you would expect, and the delay between movements is so long that to go from one side to the other you have to do the first movement before the boulder is even past you. The game is very clunky overall, much like a low quality flash game in your browser. I’d love to see the developer revisit and rework this game to at least take some of the clunkiness out. Until then, I would suggest fans (and everyone else) just skip it.
It’s ok

It’s amazing
The hints aren’t great but the game is
by BreezyB7689463 on 2020/06/06 09:36
I did enjoy this game. I love all the Haiku games. I love the puzzles and storylines and I think all the games are fun. This is the first time I have given 4 stars. I could tell this must have been one of the earlier games because things have definitely elevated from this to the adventure escape mysteries which were the first I played. I think it’s great to see how much they are truly developing as creators with each mystery. The reason I gave this one 4 stars was the hints. These are the least helpful out of any of the games. For some of the harder puzzles it’s really frustrating because they give 3 very very obvious hints where you are like yes obviously I am looking at that but then to get to an actual helpful hint takes like 15 stars. That’s the only grievance. Great job overall though!
Not one of my favorites
by Breeina on 2020/07/07 22:09
I’ve done several of these games and am making my way backwards through them. Hints are not helpful, and the mini games are harder than the actual mystery. Often, the locks are hard and no where to see where the clue is, even after looking online. There was no way to know I had to shake my iPad to get the cauldron to shake. The company has done a better job since. I like this company and the concept. Worth doing when you are bored.
Buggy, cannot complete until bug fixed
by Tahlula Jane on 2019/03/24 15:32
I’m on the very last chapter and the apple weighing game is messed up! You’re supposed to choose the heaviest apple out of I think 10 apples after 2 times using the scale to weigh...and you need to do this 3 times in a row choosing the correct apple. Only, if you choose the wrong apple (this is a difficult mini game), the apples graphic no longer separates into 10 apples, but stays as one apple asking you to choose which apples to weight. Well, you can’t choose because it only shows 1 apple!!! To get out I have to start chapter all the way over again!!! (Which I have done 3 times!!!) or pay $5 to skip puzzle!!!! I quit. Fix the bug please. I will not pay for a messed up game:-(
Meh
by MichinAlien on 2020/08/18 02:34
The story (as far as I got) was decent and somewhat funny. Unfortunately, the hints are poor and serve as directions for the mini games, meaning the directions aren’t free (which is pretty messed up). Stars are easily found; however hints have a high and unanticipated cost. Basically, if you get stuck at any of the mini games and don’t have enough stars, you’re forced to either give up on the game or pay money for stars. I personally don’t find this game worth actual money and would have preferred to just watch ads to earn stars. The mini games were a fun and interesting addition to an escape game, and the artwork is nicely done too! It still feels like this game was purely created to farm money out of people. Worth the time but not worth the money.
No Explanations
by EbertofGames on 2019/07/30 19:37
Some reviewers have called this game easier than the other Haiku puzzle games. That’s only true if you’re very familiar with the developer’s other apps. Unlike most other Haiku apps, this one does not give the “free hint” to explain the objective of puzzles. This is frustrating because some puzzles are very easy to overthink. Usually, the solutions are much easier than an experienced puzzle solver would expect. Not to mention, you have to perform random actions like tilting or shaking your device which seems totally out of place. Also, the mini games are ridiculously hard. The boulder game is a nightmare because there is a lag and the swiping is counterintuitive. This is one of Haiku’s older apps, and it shows.
Could be a lot better
by ...Therese... on 2019/09/23 23:06
The response is terrible ... in act one, you have to tap the weights several times (sometimes 5 or 6 times) in order to even pick up the weights ... rolling the marble in act 3, also for example, if you hold the phone tilted to the right, the marble continues to roll to the left far too long even when rolling very slowly ... same goes for rolling up and down – any direction really. Additionally, it is offered that you can skip a puzzle if you “like” the game on Facebook ... that having been done I was unable to skip the puzzle ... only other option: purchase stars! Not this time! Developers please fix the response sensitivity and the issue of getting hint stars for more stars and a better review.
No WiFi Game
by Widderune on 2020/03/14 01:47
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.

Buggy. Freezes. And bad puzzles
by Miss_Tish on 2019/11/10 17:02
I have enjoyed almost all of the other Haiku games. But this one frustrated me to no end. The program would freeze so often, I couldn’t tell if an object I touched was just background decoration, or if I had to wait a second and try again. I had to use 35 stars to skip the boulder challenge because I couldn’t swipe during the many times it froze. In addition to that, several puzzles made no sense. And I’m pretty sure one of them was actually wrong (one digit should have been “4”, but the puzzle accepted “7” instead). I would recommend ANY of the haiku puzzles before this one. Most of them are great. Sadly this one was a big miss.
Simpler, yet frustrating
by Fun for years on 2018/01/24 13:51
Love all of Haikus games, and while this one is a bit simpler in the puzzle solving department, some of the mini games are more frustrating than they are worth. The boulders in the third act were rediculous. The lag and unresponsiveness of the swiping made me spend all my stars just to skip it. The maze puzzles with the balls were almost as bad. 5 star otherwise, it would be a great game for new comers to this genre. But save your stars to skip those pesky mini games!
Not my favorite, but still worth the free download
by Tasz mom on 2018/12/14 17:46
I love all the escape games by Haiku, although this is my least favorite. Might be because of the cartoony characters or the boring storyline, or maybe this was one of their first games and it’s not done quite as well as their other games, but besides that the puzzles are fun and I hope they come up with more escape games soon!
Good!
by Krotaidptelgd on 2018/07/25 20:14
Challenging puzzles, intriguing plot, and good graphics. So I downloaded this forever ago, and replayed it recently. I found it very fun, and I loved the story line and plot, it’s very interesting. And for a game that’s more 2D, it was illustrated and worked very good!mSome of the puzzles were simple, some were harder to solve, and some outright baffled me. I very much enjoyed this, and would love to see a sequel game for it! I would definitely recommend downloading this game!
Best games ever!
by Russ3382 on 2019/07/29 07:07
I enjoy all of your escape adventure escape games! No one else can make them like your team does. Awesome storylines with amazing graphics and the best assortment of puzzles to keep me glued for hours. I’m just waiting patiently for updates to new games from you! I rate other games compared to you and leave reviews for them and other players to search Haiku games to see how it should be done!
Kind of frustrated with the boulders section
by JessAkOop on 2017/11/05 05:10
It feels like the game isn't responding quickly enough, in particular when you need to go quickly from the left to the right sides. Maybe arrows rather than a swiping motion? I'd much rather just have the mind games too instead of dexterity, as another reviewer mentioned. I like the game, but am super frustrated right now. The puzzles are challenging and clever, though sometime stuff is hard to read on the screen because it's super tiny. *grumble*
Fun
by Nursecmc on 2017/11/05 00:42
All Haiku games are great! This one is no exception. Once you play one Haiku Adventure Escape game, you'll find yourself downloading all of them. They're quite addictive. Only one ad in between levels which is a flash ad, not a video. Hints are free with stars which are easily earned/found. Nice way to pass time. Some puzzles are rather challenging while others are quite simple....a nice mix. Enjoy!
Easy, yet fun... so far
by Lou in Louisville on 2019/09/15 14:41
This is the second game by this developer that I’ve tried so far and they both have been fun but this one seems different and a lot easier than the first one, which was one of the trap maker, Kate Gray mysteries. I’m still at the beginning of this one so we’ll see how well I like this one. to be continued...
Like most of the game
by Sam2Sar on 2017/10/15 19:25
The puzzles are fun but there a several timed sections in this game. If you don’t swipe fast enough or if you have a screen cover on the response is slow. Also it seems to lag after a swipe which can cause a failure and having to restart the level. It would be nice if the timed events were slower, shorter or made easier after many failures. Love the other games that don’t have the timed sections.
Challenging yet buggy
by Shugo3 on 2020/06/06 03:15
Love all these games but the mini game is buggy and laggy and just unplayable. The marble game is not responsive enough and the boulder game is impossible to move over two spaces once it gets faster... so frustrating and I will not buy stars to get past it.
Adventure Escape Series
by LeLeNyoNyo0701 on 2018/10/28 00:52
I love all the Adventure Escape games of the Adventure Escape game series by Haiku. Even though a few puzzles are extremely challenging (and annoying at times), I still love the game. Graphics are very well-done. Gameplays aren’t too difficult for the most part. It’s so much fun and addicting. Please make more!!!
Great game...hours of fun
by Kasey2065 on 2019/06/07 00:38
I love your games. I get so sick of people leaving bad review because they might have to pay 99 cents or so. They don’t understand all the work that goes into these games. Game creators need to eat too. Thanks for all the hard work you all do for my enjoyment!
Good game
by Katbearlol on 2018/12/19 16:30
Good game fun so far! Love the plot yet again cute to. I just hope I don’t need to skip a few puzzles cuz some of the other games I played were hard For me and the walkthrough couldn’t have helped me lol, but I still love these games from these developers please keep them coming
Adventure Escape games are addicting!
by cmtcourt on 2019/10/04 02:48
I do not normally play games on a console or my phone, but this game is absolutely addicting! I can’t stop playing them. I have never played a game that was so much fun, had such great graphics, and was so well thought out. I give this game an A++.
Like this one
by Lynnguistics on 2020/05/29 00:36
I like the game and storyline. It’s a little glitchy sometimes and controls are slow moving in a few of the mini games. But overall I have enjoyed playing this one
Worth playing
by E_.E on 2019/02/03 17:39
Enjoying playing but frustrated with lack of guidance with what is found in some rooms and suppose to help you solve puzzles. Some extremely difficult where I don’t think anyone could solve without using cheating hints...others way too easy. Goes from one extreme to the other.
Buggy and hints don’t keep up with your progress
by Kindlegamer on 2018/10/20 03:33
I don’t know if this is an earlier game from Haiku, it it is full of bugs, or poorly designed compared to the others. Hints are given for things you’ve already done, and some of the puzzles just don’t do what they are supposed to do. (Full bucket won’t go on pillar for example). This one should be dropped or fixed.
Like the series
by Danny#61 on 2017/10/10 01:54
Played all of their adventure games and find them to be fun. Just started this one. Graphics are not as nice as the previous games. Will report back after I get a little further.
Some puzzles highly stressful!!! Not relaxing
by slweber186 on 2019/02/25 21:33
I love the game. It’s a bit easier than some of the others. But some of the puzzles are just plain nerve-wracking! I have to skip those, which I don’t like doing.
LOVE IT
by StarrySarah101 on 2018/10/16 04:16
I love all the levels and all the puzzles even though they can get very frustrating sometimes. I think everyone should have this game. Btw have you noticed that the girl with the orange curly hair looks a lot like Disney princess Merida?
Not to hard
by Char2459 on 2019/01/07 15:07
Keep your interest. So far games are fun and makes you think but after a little while you can figure them out. Having fun so far.
Fun
by VaseGator on 2019/03/06 02:08
I do these to relax, so I enjoy these types of games that are not too hard nor too easy. At times it can be tough to figure out certain parts or maybe I'm missing something. LOL I like it
Haiku is great, but don’t bother with this one
by FenderSaleen on 2018/06/07 03:36
As others have mentioned, there is a lot of lag which causes the mini games to be extremely frustrating and almost impossible. Writing on the walls is difficult to read. I love the other escape games from haiku just not this one.
Good game but..,
by Oleanderbush on 2020/08/29 19:37
I cannot get past the fiery steps and because it is in between scenes there is no opt out even with stars. I have a screen protector and there is so much pressure required to activate a step it can’t be done quickly. An option to skip would be ok or fixing the sensitivity. iPhone.
Fun and Challenging
by Heiki Jo on 2018/11/23 08:27
I love all the Haiku games and I like this one as well, although it is my least favorite due to cartoon graphics, cheesy storyline, and confusing puzzles...I had to do the walk through for several scenes, which I do not like to do. Still, I enjoyed it and am excited for more games.
The ball roll maze acts a bit funky
by dickbuckis1 on 2020/10/07 04:00
Sometimes i won’t even be close to going into a hole and the game will decided to put it in anyways. Can something be done about this
Love the haiku games
by Lljjbvfyedvdeiyesaxvbhhgyuk on 2018/01/30 22:16
Agree with the previous review. Simpler but mini games are crazy hard. Again due to the lag time of swiping on my device.
Haiku(ish)
by Mrsbstn04 on 2020/09/14 21:26
This was the last of the haiku games to play for me. I absolutely loved the rest of them. This one was a bit different. As a haiku game I don’t think it was up to par but as a puzzle solving game it great.
Great game, but..
by Gamergirl_101 on 2018/08/01 17:21
I love games like this but... in the kitchen I had to use basically all my stars to skip the cooking thing because when I would try to shake the pot I would have to click multiple times which would end up with me losing.
Worst one of the lot.
by Fsxcghhgddrhggddd on 2020/08/27 08:45
These guys make much better games than this one. So far this game is the only one where there is no clue to some puzzles. If you have to shake your device to make a key fall then put it in a tutorial at least once. Most of their other games are much better.
Kind of easy but fun
by .……………… on 2020/07/10 23:25
This is much easier than some of their other games but still fun
Kinda good
by Fantasia Mathews on 2019/11/16 22:23
The stages are amazing but when I got to the part where I had to avoid the rocks...the swiper was going to slow so I had to restart 15 times...afterwards I deleted it...can you please make it to where the swiper is faster...please and thank you❣️
Already a ton of fun!
by Yankeesoil on 2020/05/20 04:52
My 7YO daughter saw me playing the more advanced games and we started the Scottish Castle escape to help her with her reading extra credit. Super fun already!
Fun
by Betsy and Ari on 2019/12/12 05:54
I am a huge fan of Haiku games. This is probably my least favorite of all of them. That’s not saying that much though, because I truly love them all.
Cute
by Nakstacks on 2020/08/19 00:05
The puzzles are fun but needs some updates to compare the quality of more recent games.
Fun enough, but not as challenging as the others
by MomMonster2 on 2017/09/27 14:40
This feels a bit like a "Brave" knockoff and geared toward a younger audience than the others in the series. Still, it's better than most escape games so far, so I'll play the it to he end.
New but not as fun
by Celticdragonlord on 2020/04/16 15:15
I like the theme, and that they are trying new animations. Some of the puzzles are new and different, so it shakes it up a bit. Physically shaking the phone was novel. The puzzles get repetitive, though. Instead of reusing the number combination, I’d like to see more variety. One puzzle had no immediate answer, and the marble puzzles were buggy and non-responsive. All in all, I got some fun out of it, but not the same quality as in some of the other Haiku games.
Glitches galore
by kikidadoo on 2018/07/06 01:02
The marble roll game kept glitching; my ball would go down a hole and not return, so game over. Couldn’t finish. Restarted several times, even redownloaded it. Then, the boulder roll game glitched and I could never pass it. Reloaded again, but same issues. Love all the other haiku games. Did every single one, but not this one! Uggggggg
Awesome
by jkkk13123 on 2020/08/02 21:55
Game is great for time consuming and your mind definitely takes awhile to get these thinkers down..
Great Game
by Msf5341 on 2019/04/11 02:33
Easy enough to be fun and difficult to be a bit challenging. I am not very far but am very much enjoying it!
Fun so far
by mercules74 on 2020/01/26 17:10
Just started this game and it’s funny and not to hard so enjoyable if you’re not looking for a really challenging game. Will finish my review when I finish the game
