About the Game:
Alleys is an adventure experience in which the player explores a theme park world full of quaint alleys that would fit perfectly in small towns in the English countryside. The gameplay is simple, with fewer of the complicated elements often found in puzzle games. All the player needs to do is to search for passageways, gather resources, and get immersed in the exquisite graphics and noir atmosphere. The player is free to choose where to go and can solve puzzles in any order to escape.
Background Story of Game:
Alleys is a large-scale escape room hosted by a theme park, and the player is a tourist who has decided to take part in the escape experience. The player wanders through a fictional old English-style town, collects resources, solves puzzles, and overcomes obstacles to gradually discover the backstory woven throughout the alleys. In the end, the player finds the exit gate and escapes.

Ratings and Reviews
So much wasted potential
It hangs. Often. Especially when moving between areas. This time it won’t restart at all. Just goes to the restart/player/start screen and refuses to go forward. Apple store QA should never allowed an app this buggy. I want my money back!
Brilliant, took me days to get through, and now I want to play again. Took *lots* of exploration, looking into every nook and cranny, and even getting out pen and paper at one point to do some mapping, though it is not required to finish. Beautiful art, sound, and graphics. Enormous map. Logical puzzles. A few small glitches here and there, like sometimes you do something to generate a tool card and it puts it into your inventory without telling you, so it is confusing to see that you *do* suddenly have that thing that you need, even though you don’t know why! Also several notable typos in the English version (forth/fourth). But the rest is exceptional. Recommended!
Literally. The screen is unresponsive in the first menu.
