996 Escape Games – Free the Love Birds and its counterparts are fun games. However, they would be much more appealing if the quality was improved. In general, the game responds well to player interactions and players can fairly easily tap on objects to reveal clues or add them to their collection. Other aspects of the game, lack quality. For example, the introduction is written using fragments, run-on sentences and other errors in grammar and punctuation. The game also features ads at the top of the screen that are partly cut off given the size of the ad bar, making the game look like it is of less quality than it is. During the game, on the bottom of the screen, players will see icons for more information and video. These icons are small and easy to miss. The video icon also takes players out of the app to watch a walk-through of the game which is not set up to be easily viewed on mobile devices.
While not inherently educational, escape games like 996 Escape Games – Free the Love Birds encourage logical thinking and reasoning skills. Players must be able to put together all of the information they find in a way that helps them solve the mystery. They must make connections and inferences and draw conclusions. These are all essential skills that students need to develop.
