I Can’t Escape: Darkness is an atmospheric horror adventure game that pulls you into a living dungeon where everything conspires against your escape. It is an immersive journey into the unknown, personified by the Darkness itself. Your odds of escape are slim, and when you fail, the dungeon will change before you can try again. Defend yourself from the Darkness with whatever light you can find; once your light burns out, the Darkness will consume you.

4 / 10.0

From its abysmal combat to its shoddy randomly generated dungeon, I really could not stop playing "I Can't Escape: Darkness" fast enough. I'm sure there are some masochists out there that enjoy this sort of game, but I'm certainly not one of them.

All in all, I Can't Escape: Darkness is a very simple, though difficult, game. It's squarely rooted in the past, with the only modern touch being the Steam-based scoreboards.

I Can't Escape: Darkness is vague, contains random and frustrating win states, not scary, and the best part is the secrets and sound design.

I Can't Escape: Darkness certainly does well to create a tense atmosphere with some great pleasing visuals. Unfortunately that doesn't cover up this games flaws. Combat is slow and irritating, exploration becomes tiresome after several attempts and there's never any real motivation to keep players going. This game just seems to be more style over substance.
