A while back a few years ago I and a couple of friends played this game for hours on end until we completed it and finished. The game is obviously set during the Second World War and you are a new arrival in to a small prisoner of war camp which looks like it is situated deep in the countryside in enemy territory. The graphics are very eye catching and tick every box as regards what you would expect to see from one of these camps, there are the huts where the inmates sleep as well as other building with different uses. There are barbed wire fences around the perimeter and as you walk around the compound if you go close to the fence, guards above in turrets or watchtowers will warn you in their stereotypical German accent to back away or suffer the dire consequence.
The game is a role playing format where you have to interact with your fellow prisoners to find information in order to aid your escape. There are lots of good characters, all the different types you would expect and have probably seen in films and programmes focusing on this kind of setting. You have to make sure you are not found where you are not supposed to be otherwise you will find you end up in solitary confinement where a German guard will utter great little phrases such as "Perhaps this will teach you some respect". My friends and I still repeat this phrase to each other when the situation warrants it.
Once you manage to escape this first location you are moved to a larger camp and then finally once it is realised you are a serial escaper you are sent to Colditz. The graphics and the game play make this a fun, interesting and entertaining way to pass a few hours or days in our case.
