Nice and fast action platformer

The Escapist is a good platformer, full of colors, power-ups...and it is deadly! You will die a lot, but the game never will be frustrating. If you are searching for a good title, waiting for a Super Meat Boy sequel, try this.


Action packed!

Quite a good platformer game! It's very fast paced and be prepared to die a lot in this game! It's really quite innovative and has some old elements of platformer games as well all new themes and aspects which make it quite unique to play. I would definately recommend you checking it out as I don't think there are a a lot of games of this type around. You could definately sink countless hours on this as I have and once you stop there is not stopping as you go from onw level to the next without looking at the time! There are also collectable coins which you can collect if you are a collector freak like me! Definately check it out and enjoy this radical game!
