Egyptian Escape

Escape Reality is my favourite company in Manchester, not only because of the 50% student discount Mon-Thurs, but all of their rooms are well-developed.

Story

Steal precious treasure from the Ancient Pyramids, but get out of there before you're trapped forever.

Puzzles

Good fun, with the right links to Ancient Egyptian culture. One or two of them were clunky, though, and so we suffered a technical fault or two. I have to say, I'm not a big fan of scanning stickers using a tablet to get hints. In darker spots, they're impossible to pick up. Although it can be good to remain in control of your own hint-distribution and they don't usually give the answers away, a Game Operator would probably have a better idea on how much/little of a push in the right direction a team requires.

Mise-en-scène

Great. When entering, I felt like I was stepping into another world. It's an enchanting room with all the sand, mummies and sarcophagi you’d hope for in an Ancient Egyptian themed escape.

Final Comments

Take three or four people; as a team of two, we only just got out 😉

Some nice themeing and some standard puzzles but a couple of reset errors marred our enjoyment of the game.
