PuzzleParrot expert rated this:Rated between 25 and 25 out of 5

Had a fine time on the first four (very easy) levels.  Toward the end there were some leaps in logic, and the website timer also appeared to be broken; hard difficulty was supposed to be 40 minutes, but sometimes I'd start a level with only about 20 minutes on the clock.

Wei-Hwa Huang expert rated this:Rated between 25 and 25 out of 5
Outcome: Successful escape!

Pretty creative given the limited production values and only a couple of leaps of logic problems.  Enthusiasts won't find anything too fulfilling here but it's a fine diversion.

Reviews by escape room review sites

MacGyver: The Escape Room Game was created by the folks behind the ThinkFun games Mystery at the Stargazerโ€™s Manor and Secret of Dr. Gravelyโ€™s Retreat. As fans of those games (particularly Stargazerโ€™s), we were psyched to see a 5-part, licensed MacGyver escape game from the same creative team. MacGyver was a natural and an exciting character to adapt into an escape room game.
Can MacGyver even create a compelling home game out of some envelopes, a paper clip and a candy bar? The answer may surprise you.
