Befuddled Down Baker Street
My final escapade at MoviEscape involved a visit to 221B Baker Street, though I wish I took more than just one comrade for this difficult room.
Find out the location of Sherlock and his kidnapped pals.
There’s nothing massively intuitive in the puzzle department, here. We got off to a speedy start, but then slowed down to an unenjoyable halt. Useful items aren’t just tricky to find- they’re literally camouflaged, which took the fun out of searching for things. I’m sure that one of the items needed for a certain calculation wasn’t present. For one of the last puzzles, the problem-solving required was very difficult to work out without any sort of help. I overthought the penultimate task as a result of becoming overwhelmed by lots of different numbers and not knowing what to do with them. We must have spent a quarter of our time on it, and more or less had to have the answer spelled out to us.
It passed as a detective’s office with its dated wallpaper, record player and Holmes memorabilia. However, the second room was a random and irrelevant space to the story. This is another of MoviEscape’s rooms that uses an egg-timer (grr).
Apparently, all of the games at MoviEscape are intermediate level, but this one was by far the hardest. Our host was apathetic at best.
Fun but really really hard!!
