993 Mine Escape is a high quality app that will occupy puzzle fans for hours. Developers have created a wealth of innovative puzzles to stump players as they try to find their way out of each room. They also have linked to a helpful walk-through that is great for novice players, since it demonstrates how to solve the first puzzle (though things move very fast, and it will take you several views to understand everything).
Puzzles that exercise observation and reasoning skills are always education, even if they don’t really “intend” to be. This app is no exception. Kids have no alternative but to be observant, to apply their reasoning skills, to be curious and to be persistent if they want to win at this activity, and these are precisely the same skills that they will need for success in educational pursuits.
993 Mine Escape is a lot of fun to play. Though the game is timed, there doesn’t seem to be any “time limit,” so it’s ok if a player takes a while to solve the given puzzles. The graphics are enticing, and many of the items in the room can be manipulated. The challenge is figuring out exactly what actions are needed and in what sequence.
This app is free on the App Store, making it a great value. If you (or your older children) enjoy escape-the-room puzzles, this would be a fun addition to your collection. It features dozens of hours of game play, so it’s tough to beat the price.
