Great Escape, The box cover

Great Escape, The screenshot
One of the most gripping "realistic" adventures ever produced, The Great Escape puts you in the role of a World War II pilot who is captured by the Germans and must --what else?-- escape from the prison. The puzzles are standard find-everything-that-isn't-nailed-down affair, but there are may scripted events and characters you must take advantage of. For example, figuring out the daily routine of prison life and the guards' patrol routes are essential to plotting your escape. Puzzles are obvious (e.g. se poison on guard dog), but the truly affective adrenaline rush you'll feel when implementing your plan is the best thing about this game. Overall, it's a fun but forgotten classic, and the graphics was good for its time. Thumbs up!
