Can You Escape 2.

Mimicry is the first obvious category here because you start each level trapped within a room and have to search the room for items in order to solve clues which in turn help you escape the room.

A certain amount of Alea (chance) is also present here too, as some of the puzzles and items are and need to be literary stumbled upon.

You can fall in to a state of flow quite easily in this game (you want to escape) but with only ten levels it is too short at the moment.
