CGMagazine (7 out of 10): “The Artful Escape has a great storytelling with really good humor, highlighted by the talent of the voice actors, but the gameplay is boring and there is a long way to go for those who don’t like electric guitar.”

Screen Rant (2 of 5): “When the characters return unexpectedly in the finale, it becomes noticeable how little they have done in the oversaturated narrative. The plot can be completed in a few hours, and during these hours you can sometimes have fun and be distracted, but [в игре] there is no catharsis, no satisfaction from the narrative, not even an interesting platforming. With this visual richness, The Artful Escape looks more like a chilly museum after closing. “
