Ripped from the headlines of ancient Greece, No Escape takes place immediately after Jason stole the Golden Fleece. Naturally, the gods were not pleased at the hubris of this proud mortal and decided to test him.
Jason finds himself in the Temple of Aphrodite faced with several frenzied Furies, who fire flaming projectiles at our hero. Fortunately, the goddess, none to pleased about the other gods using her palace as a prison, has armed Jason with an endless supply of rocks with which to defend himself.
Don't do the obvious thing and hurl your rocks at the Furies — each time they are hit, they multiply, so avoid hitting them at all costs. Instead, aim your rocks for the bricks that line the roof of Aphrodite's temple. Strike a brick and it falls free, hopefully onto a Fury and destroying it. You clear a level when all the Furies have been destroyed.
No Escape can be played with one or two players. You start the game with four lives, as indicted by a gold bar at the bottom of the screen, and you gain a life at the end of each level for a maximum of eight.
There are eight variations to choose from in No Escape — four one-player games and four two-player games. Each variation represents a different level of difficulty. ~ Michael Schwartz/Joan Dykman, All Game Guide
