Outcome: Successful escape!

This was more like as storytelling game, not much on the puzzle side, put what was there where ok. Not a bad escape game very much a forgetable one.

This felt more like a choose-your-own-adventure than an escape room. Which, in some ways, provided a refreshing change - there were parts at which you could make decisions about e.g. which items to take, or the order in which you proceeded to investigate different areas of the game. Ultimately though, these choices ended up really only being surface-deep and immaterial to the outcome of the game, and the puzzles you encounter along the way are very much like the simple puzzles in a Professor Layton game - involving only basic observation, routefinding through mazes etc.

As with their other games, El Dorado is a small box of cards, which you work through in a semi-linear way, with some cards being puzzles that you must solve to g...

The Mystery of Eldorado was the fourth installment in Deckscape’s card-based, story-driven escape game series. We were lost in the Amazon (rain forest… not website) and Deckscape added a survivalist twist to the puzzles.
We’re back with another game in the Deckscape series… This time we’re off to find the lost city of Eldorado, but in an endless jungle filled with dangers what will we actually find?!!
