a new bontegame: 40xescape

Yes it's time for a brand new bontegame! Enjoy 40xEscape! Only one door, firmly locked, but have you got what it takes to escape? 40 times?! 40xEscape was made for the Casual Game Design Competition 10 with theme 'escape'.

Excellent escape game, Bart! I got stuck for a bit on level 35 but finally figured it out :) Thanks for sharing your latest creation with us!

PaleRose said...

Great job, Bart! I love it! Made it through only using hints for lvl 35! I'm kinda proud of myself...and of you too, Bart! Awesome game. :)

Fun! Some of the puzzles were too easy, but some definitely had me scratching my head.

It's alright. It worked for me eventually.

Miss Piggy said...

@Anon 5/9 9:01 - I used Internet Explorer and it works for me. Are you making sure that you follow the instructions?

Bart, that was a fantastic game. It started off fairly easy, and then there were a couple of ones where I had to stop and think a little, and I loved the return of the bird!

PeterK said...

Fairly easy but liked the concept a lot, the yellow bird hopping about all the time is genius. Nice!

Hugh Janus said...

I liked the game a lot.

I liked the simple design. I liked the puzzles.

Most of all I liked the little bird, which I shall call "Anja".

Me/you said...

Really nice one! Just needed a bit help for the 29...
Thank you Bart and keep going!

How can I do level 20?

Wookie said...

Great game. Some easy. Some I had to think hard about. Some I kicked myself when I realised what to do.

Thanks.

I signed up to judge CGDC10, and this was the first game I tried. I have to say, I was not disappointed! Most levels were easyish, some I sort of fumbled through. For example, I got #19 in the end, but what was the logic behind it?

wyatt said...

fun!
couldn't believe my brain fart on #38!
thanks so much, bart!

Alexander said...

A Great Game Bart.
Congratulation!!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

level 9 isn't working for me :(

wyatt said...

btw...
i always love your game style... the clean simplicity is such a treat :)
and totally loved the birdie!

Yu-chan said...

Wo!! Got stuck in level 38. And so, there was a level with the hint 4x4 that I passed no idea how o__O

Yu-chan said...

Oh, the bird is free now ^___^

Rob said...

Nice and easy, nr. 29 and 35 were tricky

Moe said...

Fun escape game...entertaining as well, some are easy and others need the right thinking.I got stuck at levels 16 and 38 a bit.
Anw thanks for the new game Bart,hope for some more later...

Joaybean said...

Thanks Bart! I'm so excited to play another game by you.

eville said...

stuck on 22. any help?

Anonymous said...

I stopped at lvl 20 out of sheer boredom. That is a boring and repetitive game.

amyandkeekers said...

bart!!!! level 9 ..did you really let me sit there and drink my vodka? you sneaky devil you :P i love the music too!! psst...would be neat if you dedicated a level to minoto :) hugs love ya always hon

Anonymous said...

this is a great game- very straightforward, although must say i got bored after lvl 13 and gave up....

Bart said...

Thanks for playing everyone! In case you need a little help, you can find hints/a walkthrough over here:

Bart said...

To everyone that had a problem with level 9, I couldn't reproduce the problem, but I think I know what was causing it. There is now a new version online that should solve it.
Could someone that had a problem with level 9 confirm this please? Thanks!
(note: to verify you are playing the fixed version of the game, there is now a small 'v1.1' indication in the opening screen with the ad in the big pink ball)

Anonymous said...

Again with the sound... Bart I just love your games but I have to be able to turn the sound off. Everyone should have the choice to listen or not to listen. That goes for introduction sounds, background sounds and background music. You get a big thumbs down from me today. I'm not playing!

Anonymous said...

Bart -I've never written before, but have loved your games for a long time. I don't understand how anyone could become bored with this game! It's wonderful - you make us think outside the box over and over, and that's never boring! I love this game! Thank you so much!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHH........... so that was why you dint post anything! You were working!

Thank you, Bart!

PyroLuna said...

I love this one, I needed help on level 27 but got all the rest!

Anonymous said...

the lvl 9 in the new version works now on internet explorer & firefox.

thankx bart!

TiCKed said...

Several people mentioned the bird....

Well, the little goof distracted me enough on one level that I was convinced you could only light a letter when the bird was NOT pecking on the side of the door. LOL!

Finally figured out the bird had nothing to do with it. :)

DonutLover said...

Fun and just what I needed today. A nice little set of puzzles. The bird was a nice little touch. Thanks Bart!

Imogen M. said...

Nice game! Some puzzles had unnecessary hints, while some were very vague...but this was fun and most of them were cool. Thanks!

Vite said...

Simplemente genial.

Anonymous said...

the "chick" was originally from:a bonte escape.fun game too.

sergio said...

Not your masterpiece, sorry Bart!
The game is a bit boring. Once started it's hard to quit, but tricks are not original and really predictable.
Don't worry, I'm sure that a new and better game will be ready soon!

Anonymous said...

Very fun, although could have been a little trickier and a little less repetitive. Thanks Bart!

Anonymous said...

Bart you're so creative!! Always loved your games! :D

Tina said...

Nice respite. A bit on the easy side and repetitive but it's nice to have an easy game every now and then. Kinda copying 100 floors/exits? Do more and make them progressively challenging.

Lizzie! said...

Nice little escape. A couple of floors made me think for just a little bit...but I got it all by my onesies.

Thanks, Bart!

Goose said...

Loved the game bart. It was 10:00 at night when I played it after a tiering day at school so I had to use a walkthrough on 4-5 of the levels. But thought it was good and KEEP GOING WITH THE ESCAPES BART!!

Anonymous said...

lvl. 21 was difficult with a laptop!!!!!!!!

Yami Puppy said...

Level 27, any hints?

koekjesvreter said...

Great game! Thanks for creating and sharing!

Anonymous said...

Yay! Another Bonte game!

NotMarian said...

Loved it! Some levels were really tricky, but I figured them all out on my own. Thanks for the great game.

Anonymous said...

it reminded me a lot of 100 floors on my phone but a good game none the less

Carly said...

Hi Bart
I loves this one! I had ply planned to do about half and then pick it up some other time, but played it through without any help. Got stuck a few times but figured it out in the end. And I loved that little birdie! I wasn't all alone in that room but had a little friend! Very sweet! :)
Thanks, Bart! Keep up the good work!

I liked the bonte rooms, a bonte escape and free the bird more!!!!

jdoe said...

hi bart,
can't play your game anymore - seems the site contain a malicious virus :(((

Stevens Miller said...

Same problem. My browser warns that jayisgames has been reported as an attack site.

Bart said...

JayIsGames had an attack indeed, here's their statement:

"We had an attack last night and so we took the site down immediately once we learned of the issue. The site has since been fixed and is now back online and safe to visit again. The malware warnings should go away soon, once the pending Google site review has been completed."

So all should be fine now.

Stevens Miller said...

Right you are! Site has a clean bill-of-health as I write this.

Nice work, jayisgames!

Stevens Miller said...

Not bad. Only three or four took some real thinking, but all were amusing.

Izzi said...

kind of easy sorry bart...

Anonymous said...

Love this game...THANKS BART... :-)

The Former Site Master said...

I had to use your walkthrough for the 2nd half of the game. But I had been dieing for a Factory Balls 5. I made an example of 35 new levels on PowerPoint and should be sending it to you in a week. But yeah, nice escape game! I've always pictured a game like this and BAM! My thoughts come true. The game was the perfect birthday present, since it came out 2 days after my birthday.

rypi said...

I need help on level 27.

Anonymous said...

Awesome game! I love challenges, and I think this was possibly the best game in the history of the planet.

anna in spain said...

Thank you for this game Bart. I've just come back after a long hiatus, your games are always that bit different and require lateral thinking. Thanks so much for helping my brain stretch a little!!
