Musical Escape

Mr. Smith needs to get away…fast! Can you help him leave the country in a private jet?

Musical Escape is a musical game. If you are a beginner, it trains your ear to recognize a specific orchestral instrument while listening to a short musical piece.

If you already have a good working knowledge of music, try the “hard” level, where it is more difficult to recognize when your target instrument is playing.


Sound must be ON. Listen to the music and watch the clock. Finish all nine levels, each with its own music!

When you hear the instrument, press the designated color.

Note: The instrument will be heard three times within 30 secs. If you tap wrong answers, the music skips for 2 seconds as a penalty.

Tips and Strategy

Play smart–don’t just place pieces randomly, hoping to solve the puzzle by trial and error.

There are two important differences, compared with regular jigsaw puzzles: (a) the pieces are all square, so the shape of a piece does not help; and (b) you are presented with pieces one at a time.

You can use the overlap feature, by placing one piece on top of another. The cell border turns red to indicate this. This allows you to delay positioning the piece, while you move on to other pieces.

Use the small image of the completed puzzle at the top of the screen. If you need a more detailed view, press the Check Answer button, but it will cost you some turns.

Enjoy Gridzzle! on your device. It’s a great way to exercise your brain while enjoying the fun of playing a very visually oriented game.

Three time champion, World Gridzzle! Tournament

Gordon has a photographic memory, and is often rude to players who think longer than five seconds a move. He has a bad temper and once hurled a 10,000-piece jigsaw at the wall, only to put it all together just an hour later.

Professional Gridzzle! player

Eri took home $50 million in prize money and product endorsements last year. When not actually playing Gridzzle!, she counts her prize money, and arranges it in a grid. This is because she has no friends.

Sven plays so much Gridzzle! that he is often hospitalized for fractures of his thumbs. His book is updated frequently with new techniques, and all the other champions read it secretly.

Tiffany coaches professional Gridzzle! tournament players. Is the rumor that she mentally internalizes a picture and divides it up in her head, so that she recognizes every piece true? Nobody knows.


Musical Escape players say 

There aren’t that many pieces in a puzzle, but because they are all square, this is probably a bit harder than some of the jigsaw puzzles I did while I was in jail. Yeah, didn’t see that coming, did you?
–Paul “nicer than I look” McEvil

Okay, so the objective is to put together a picture, but what I want to know is why break it apart in the first place? I’m asking for a friend…
–Jimmy “don’t really get it” Hahn

Gridzzle! is my latest obsession, but I find it healthier than my previous obsessions, such as chocolate, binge watching TV shows and gambling and…I think I should stop there.
–Lisbett “no half measures” Choi
