Alas a copy never arrived, and I patiently waited for it to drop into my price range. Exit recently got into my price range, and I purchased it. I have been playing this hand held game, and enjoying it. Exit is a puzzle game where you help others escape.

Excerpt: Exit is a stylish 2D platformer/puzzle game that looks a lot like a resurrected comic book. Everything is true 3D, even the backgrounds, which gives the game great depth despite the fact that the gameplay only deals in two dimensions. The polygons are also cel shaded, which lends some style to the game. The sound and music are very action-oriented. There is little recorded dialogue, except for the people you are trying to save screaming one-liners out every now and then.
Excerpt: Without a doubt, the next generation of hardware should be pretty fantastic from a technical standpoint—and by extension, the games should be too. These superpowered machines are more potent than ever, and it's pretty clear that the stakes are being raised for developers who want to compete; the market is being driven towards an endless cycle of must-be-a-blockbuster. However, what about indie developers and people with new ideas, or those working on a shoestring?
Excerpt: Superheroes don't have to wear obscenely coloured costumes, move faster than the speed of light, shoot web from their wrists, control the weather or possess any other such fantastical powers. Well, that's what Mr. Escape, the hero of Ubisoft's Exit would like you to believe. In a world where merely saving people the good old fashioned way doesn't seem good enough, does this simple puzzler have what to takes to prove people wrong?
Excerpt: When a genuinely innovative title pops up out of nowhere, it never gets the credit that it deserves initially. Later on though, the game ends up being heralded as real groundbreaker, and swarms upon swarms of players descend upon bargain bins and eBay to find that elusive copy.

Excerpt: Taito's Exit centres on a character named Mr. Esc. (short for Escape, of course). He's a self-styled 'get-you-out-of-a-jam man' who's ready to hire himself out for those all too frequent moments in life when one finds oneself in dire straits. Fire, ice, crumbling walls and debris can't deter Mr Esc. from the one thing he's really good at - saving lives. Exit is a game as simple as its title. You take control of Mr. Esc. and aim for the exit.
