About Tomb Escape

Guide your pixel archaeologist out of the tomb by jumping from platform to platform, collecting gems while avoiding obstacles. When your character reaches the end of the screen, he'll turn around and head in the opposite direction. Use these changing directions, along with well-timed jumps and varying platforms, to collect all of the gems within each level. When all the gems have been collected, the exit will appear, and you'll need to make your way to it to complete the level.

Tomb Escape is a constant motion game with a fixed, centered point of view. It features 30 levels of increasing difficulty. When a new game element is introduced, the stage where it's introduced should make it apparent how the game element should be used. If not right away, then certainly within a few attempts! Half the fun of the game is learning the patterns and behaviors of the levels, but see the "How to Play" section for gameplay hints if you want spoilers.

Tomb Escape is 100% free: there is no cost to purchase, no in-app purchases, no ads, no data collection.

How to Play

Tap the screen to make your character jump. That's it. The challenge is in the timing of the jumps and the order of the platforms. The timing of your jumps is very important; not only to reach certain platforms, but also to avoid other platforms while in motion. Pay special attention near areas where your character changes directions. You'll get a jump boost near these points, so time your jumps carefully.


  • Wine platforms: solid and fixed.
  • Pink platforms: solid, but disappear shortly after being touched.
  • Butter platforms: solid, but move downward when touched.
  • Brown platforms: solid from the top only (i.e. you can jump up through them).


Tomb Escape was built with Construct 2, HTML5, Adobe PhoneGap, and Adobe Photoshop. It's known as "Tomb Escape Adventure" on the Apple App Store. Tomb Escape was built using a now deprecated library and will be removed from app stores at the end of 2021.

And this battle shall be the delicious mustard on that bread! The mustard of your doom!
