It's very blue.

That aside, this is one of my personal favorites. It's got a bunch of neat things such as manually controlling shinesparks, a hub area, bonuses for saving the animals early and more.

Full playthrough below, but there was tools used.

Escape II is an enjoyable hack filled with some pretty interesting stuff, and a lot of blue. (Literally everything is blue.) It's got a nice hub, and plenty of secrets. Not to mention every major item can be grabbed from multiple spots it seems. Plenty of secrets make this to be something you'll get plenty of time exploring.

There are some different features in this hack, including a Super Missile Beam and Shinespark control. The shinespark control in particular sets up for some interesting puzzles and does allow for some very interesting movement through rooms. The hack does have some problems though. For one, it uses one color. Another thing is a particular X-Ray room is extremely obnoxious, even if finding it uses an underused feature of the Googly Eye enemies. And sometimes, the hack just doesn't flow too well. Might be from entering the warp zone on accident and having to take a long way back, but there were some dull points.

I would definitely recommend this hack. Planet Blue SpoSpo is worth visiting and you'll likely enjoy it. It feels a lot like a single-color extended edition of a vanilla hack with additional features.

Escape 2 does a lot of things really well, and the alterations to the movement mechanics are some of the most ambitious and rewarding that I've come across. The reason I gave this a 4 is because of how confusing I found it to make my way around the planet. With that said, it's a really well made hack and pretty fun as well. 8.25/10

You need some knowledge to finish this hack without any tool assisted stuff!

For more information checkout my 'review' at:,3125.msg59822.html#msg59822

PS: Don't hate the final escape! The game is gradualy teaching you all the basics you need to get past it. If you can't do it, hate yourself, not the hack!

A frustrating hack that I grown to like. This game have so many dead end. You go down a path forever to discover that you don't have the necessary upgrade to push through at the very end. Level design is bland in many places and there's a lot of padding. The hub mechanic is interesting but also not intuitive. Graphics are alright but rough in some spots. I also got the Wave beam glitch that broke my beams and made them likes infinite super missiles with plasma, wave and ice properties. It kinda broke the balance of the last part of the game, which might actually be a good thing since I could breeze through it. Difficulty is vanilla for the most part with a bit of a spike by the end. Even with all the frustration, I found myself wanting to play more and ended up finishing it. It's worth playing through but require some patience.
