As you can surely guess from the game’s name, this game is about an escape from some museum. Of course, you are right. The introduction to the game tells a brief story about a girl who goes to visit the local museum. While walking around with the guide, who’s role the players will be playing in the game, an earthquake seems to start and everything around begins to fall apart. The guide lefts the girl in the monitoring room, supposedly the safest place in the museum, and goes out to find some help. Suddenly she finds herself trapped in the other end of the museum and help is not coming. She needs to get back to the monitoring room and save the girl. As a matter of fact, you as a player have to find the way to go back to the monitoring room.

So, how are you going to do that? Let’s take a look at that. At all times you will be able to access the museum’s map to see where are you at and the way to go to the goal. The basic routine of the game is to escape from different rooms that are really messed up since the earthquake, and finally get to the monitoring room. Every escape is a mission in which you need to solve some problems in order to be able to leave the room. For example, in the first room, you need to move a dinosaur head which is blocking the only door. To do that, you need to find a rope to tie the head up and lift it using a pulley located above the door.
On the top of the screen there is a list of items you need to find in the room, to solve the problem and escape the room.

When you first enter the game, you’ll be asked to type in a player name. Then, you’ll see the welcome screen with the following options:

- Change player: the first time there’s no existing player. After you create one or more, they’ll be saved. When you enter into this submenu, you’ll be asked for a name as a new player. It’s possible to have a list of different players and record their performance. This way, you can play home tournaments with family and friends.
- Play: this option leads you to an introduction. When it finishes you can start playing the first level, with some on-screen aid.
- New Game: this option starts a new game from the first level.
- Options: this is the menu from which you can set some game options like sound volume, music volume, and full screen.
- Exit: no further explanation required.
