I'm in love with this game: OnEscapee

I've been playing OnEscapee for the Amiga. This game reminds me of Bladerunner and Terminator as well as Out of this world and Flashback.
If your into futuristic sci-fi, try this game out.

Im playing it on a HDF version in OS 3.1

i rather like onEscapee.

It doesnt quite handle as nicely (response time on jumping etc) as well as Flashback or another World, but it certainly looks nice and is generally pretty good.

I had been playing it through on my PS3 recently... might have to pick that up again.

Mmm, this is one of my absolutely fav Amiga games ever! I love the music and atmosphere..... the ending was sad

If you get stuck, check my longplay video. It also includes all deaths at the end. [ Show youtube player ]

woot, one of the few amiga games I actually bought after rediscovering my amiga roots, not as good as flashback and another world imho and as hungy horace says the controls doesn't feel as tight, but it is a really good game and I can recommend it aswell, infact for that period of amiga games this is one of the best

Its a great game, but there are a lot of places where you can get stuck and there is no clue what to do next. I will have to check out your long play.

The intro is nice even for today's standards (having 2d in mind ), my Metalic-maniac friend loved it . The game itself is a bit too slow at times (in terms of character movement) some puzzles too long/hard for a platformer, the main character is too big for a platformer.
But thinking of it as a Flashback clone (which of course it is) is doing for it's best - the game is quite good.

Was any of you ever able to actually play OnEscapee through alive? I always died in the end, but it felt like there is another ending where you can stay alive.
