Game Review

onEscapee is an action-adventure created by Invictus and published by Sadeness Software in 1997 exclusively for the Amiga.

The decision to invest two years in developing an Amiga game when Commodore was already dead and many Amiga users were moving to the PC was probably not wise. In fact, not many people had the chance to try (not mention buy) this game, which is a pity because onEscapee is an incredible creation. Inspired by Delphine Software's popular titles such as Flashback: The Quest for Identity e Another World, onEscapee is a cinematic adventure set in an alien world, vaguely cyberpunk. The music and visuals are stunning: after a 5-minute intro, you will enjoy the beautiful hand-drawn backgrounds and animations, digitized music, and fantastic effects such as reflections, lights, and ocean waves. The animations are impressive, with more than 1000 frames for the main character, which can perform 70 different moves.

But it's not just all presentations. The gameplay is also excellent, with action scenes and many different puzzles to be solved creatively. Enemies benefit from varying levels of AI and are different for each level. So it's not a surprise if onEscapee received so many high reviews from the magazines then and was also voted Best Amiga Game of the year in 1997.

Ten years later, the game was released as freeware and was ported to Windows so that you could enjoy this title without any emulator. If you are one of the many people that missed this gem, now it's time to make amend.
