Escape Academy Cheats, Tips Strategy
Below is a collection of hints and tips that will help you to progress in the game. These include why you should not interact with objects you do not understand and why you should take handwritten notes. As well as these hints and tips, we also have a beginners guide here which goes into more details on some of the tips we have below:
Experiment with Items
Keep in mind that there will sometimes be alternate uses for the items that you are presented with, it is therefore essential that you explore different options by trying out as many things as possible with them to know what they are.
Interact with the Professors
Between puzzles, you are given the opportunity to interact with the school's faculty by talking to the various professors that oversee each escape room. It is recommended that you do this as each of the puzzles are designed according to each professor's interests and history and by talking to them, you will be able to garner some useful information that will help you solve their escape room.
Don't Interact with Objects you Don't Understand
Resist the temptation to interact with objects that you do not yet understand as doing so can sometimes negatively affect your ability to solve the puzzle. If you feel something maybe dangerous you should steer clear of it until you have more information that can help you avoid the danger.
Remember Previous Puzzles
It is recommended that you take handwritten notes as Escape Academy will sometimes reveal that a puzzle requires information from a previous puzzle. Having clues and solutions written down in a notepad that you can quickly refer to will help to make your escape times a lot quicker.

Don't be Afraid to Guess
When you are dealing with puzzles that involve locks, codes, or number sequences, and you are finding it difficult to get a piece of the solution it may be faster to guess and check. For example, if you have already found two digits of a three-digit code there can only be ten possible options for the third digit. You do not even have to try all ten, the lock will automatically open once the correct number is entered.
Don't get Frustrated
If you are struggling to find the solution for a particular puzzle it may be time to take some time and rest for a while. When you return from your break with your mind clear there is a good probability that the answer you are looking for is right is front of you, and you couldn't see it before because you were frustrated.
