How to Play

Evade rocket fire and avoid stepping on electric spikes. Unlock the doors at the red switches and make it through all 15 stage doors before the rocket blows up. You have 3 minutes!

  • Starting the Game
    • Select Play Game on the game’s welcome screen.
      • On your first playthrough it will take you through a mini tutorial level where writing on the background explains the premise of the game.
      • On subsequent plays you go directly into the game (or at least plays the rocket critical intro message then has you play).
  • Game Controls
    • Desktop
      • Use the arrow keys or WASD to move.
        • Left arrow or A moves left.
        • Right arrow or D moves right.
        • Up arrow or W jumps.
    • Touchscreen devices
      • Use the on screen controls.
    • Controls & indicators
      • The upper left corner shows how many lives you have left.
      • The top center shows how much time you have left.
      • The upper right corner shows your score.
      • In the background of many levels there is text on the walls explaining how the game is played.
      • Each time you beat a level the level map is displayed, showing how many stages have been beat & how many remain.
  • Game Play
    • Tips
      • Many levels are easiest if you run fast through them right from the start.
      • The red switch must be activated before you can go through the door.
      • Each coin you collect is worth 100 points, but you do not need to collect all the coins to progress through the game.
        • You are ultimately playing against time, so it is best to ignore coins.
        • Each level generally takes at least 6 seconds to beat (with some taking longer), so when you consider there are 15 levels you are using over half the time on a perfect playthrough with no deaths even if you do not stop to pick up any coins.
    • Dying
      • In the original 2 Minutes to Escape you had infinite lives but only 2 minutes to make it through the game & you had 3 heart containers which were fully restored each time you died or each time you made it to a new room.
      • In this game you one-hit die if you hit electrical spikes or are hit by fire from one of the ship’s defense rockets.
        • A single hit kills you & you restart the current level as long as you have some of your 20 lives remaining.
        • You are given a maximum of 20 lives and 3 minutes to make it through all 15 stages.
        • If you run out of time it is game over and you start with a full 3 minutes and 20 lives on the first stage for your next play.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for players who like challenging level escape games.
      • Early levels on the game are easy, but the game gets difficult quickly, so later levels may frustrate some younger players who are not experienced gamers.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
