illogical
It was a cool game however didn't enjoy the point system. A lot of the puzzles were confusing and we got stuck on the dial for a lot of time. The tape on the floor was worn which didn't help solve the clue

Loved the concept of this game - not just getting out before the clock runs out, but making the most of your time in the room to collect high value items. The set design just get kept getting better and better as you moved through the game. Fab!

Reviews by escape room review sites

A small handful of escape games give you a goal other than completing the game as quickly as possible, and Pandora Heist is one of them. This is a heist game where instead of a bank vault you're sneaking into the collection chambers of another art thief, with the aim of recovering a priceless artefact from Greek mythology. However, the room has a wide variety of other art pieces too, and you're expected to pick an additional four to leave with. Different objects have very different monetary valu...

A game that was close to greatness. A great concept, visually beautiful, with a fantastic start and solid central gameplay but, just as I was getting really excited, it let me down. All the certainty that the early puzzles had provided was undone by a finish that felt more like a lottery than a puzzle challenge.
This is a fun room with a slightly different twist to most escape rooms. We weren't a big fan of the format, but like Marmite, you'll probably love it or hate it
