A solid offering with some nice quirks and straightforward puzzles. It is definitely one that's on the easy side, as we flew through it, but that's not to say it wasn't enjoyable and we appreciated the different kind of take on a common theme.
The hosting here is incredibly friendly and welcoming.
We just flew through this one. Wish we had played it in real life as we would have liked to watch some specific game mechanic IRL.
We love detective type stories and this one delivered. It is quite easy and is probably best for beginners, but we also had fun.
Part one was really what we came for - the plot twist in part two was not really our cup of tea storywise, but the puzzles were fine and not hard. You could probably say that this escape game is more focused on the story than the puzzles and that makes it very inclusive also for a younger demographic.
Tech wise this is based on the telescape platform and it worked well all the way except for sounds, where some was very low in volume and some was very high in volume. Lots of videos used to create the story.
A murder mystery done very different kept us on our toes! It had some puzzles we had not seen before and whilst it was on the easier side it was very enjoyable.
The interactive system used in the game is like nothing I had seen!
Enjoyed this a lot - some original puzzles, lovely flow to it.
Enjoyed the room, interesting with the way they've decided to create this room in terms of story line. Not the usual ending.
A fairly common theme but the story takes an interesting turn. Clue system is very inventive and the theming, whilst initially sparse and uninspiring, is done well overall. Some good puzzles (if not a tad frustrating) and great logic/flow.
Reviews by escape room review sites
This is a really fun room with the ‘things to do’ element of the room meaning everyone can get really stuck in and feel properly involved. The clue system, as with Cryptology’s other rooms, is interactive and funny, and perfectly designed to fit in with the room’s story and theme, making it a thoroughly immersive experience. Additionally, as you progress through the room the pressure ramps up to encourage you to get everything solved in time. This is cleverly done and Hugh Dunnitt is a really enjoyable and commendable room!
