Escape 2042: The Truth Defenders

In the year 2042, a socialist government is in power, but nobody had foreseen the progressive dictatorship that settled in. The elites of the government hid behind a sham democracy, disconnected from the life the people were leading, and acted solely in their own interests. The regime considered the dissidents as conspiracy theorists, treated them like terrorists and locked them away in highly-secured prisons.

You are Shun, a computer engineer and member of the Truth Defenders coalition. After a clandestine operation to inform the people, you are locked away in the highly-secured prison Bulor 24. But your knowledge on security systems will enable you to escape.

It's your turn now to escape as fast as you can from this place!


Escape 2042 game takes place in three different environments (prison, desert, forest) and is interspersed with two mini-games, including a reversed “Shoot’em Up” and an original rappelling game! Avoid the security cameras, collect grenades to get rid of your enemies, and exercise your working memory by hacking the computers of the prison to unlock the doors or to deactivate the safety systems.

Escape 2047 includes two difficulty modes. Normal is an easy game mode allowing you to use grenades for jamming cameras and to kill enemies. Harder game mode has no grenades and the minigame sequences last twice as long.

During the game, when you retrieve a new level card to open certain doors, the game will also display a password consisting of letters. This password will allow you to restart the game at the current point.

Good game, but very little replay value. Game controls well. Was able to beat game first time I played it on Normal mode.

Escape 2042: The Truth Defenders is a great addition to the Jaguar library. The controls feel comfortable, they don't feel slippery or floaty and the hacking memory game is a nice little break from the platforming action.

If you're in the mood for an easy to pick up and play puzzle platformer, I would definitely recommend looking into this game.

Escape 2042 starts out promising, with the first level being a fair balance of challeng and fun. The minigames are a nice addition, the rappelling minigame being a blast to play.

The main problem is the length. I managed to complete the game in a few hours, combined with there being no replay value makes this not worth the price to me.

Overall it's a good game, just not worth the pricetag. I'd reccomend picking it up if the game was cheaper.
