Claustrophobics have an intense fear of being stuck on elevators, but indie developer Fezziwig Games has made that prospect even more (enjoyably) disturbing for everyone with its debut mobile release, Escape the Hellevator!.
Players control a dying man named Clarence Ridgeway, who's being rushed to the Emergency Room in a hospital elevator. This is no ordinary trip, however, and you'll take your time getting to your destination, as a "mysterious priest forces Clarence to relive his sins on each floor as he plummets to his final judgment. Can you survive the drop and escape damnation?"
Each of the six rooms Clarence visits represents one of his past sins, and he'll need to escape them all in order to complete the journey. This involves solving a series of "fiendish" puzzles and interacting with the real-time 3D environments that let you "swipe the screen to investigate in an intuitive manner", while "each item you pick up can be examined and/or interacted with in a similar fashion."
A mobile exclusive, Escape the Hellevator is available for only $1.99 for both iPad and iPhone at the App Store, and for Android devices at Google Play.
