We loved this game. We’ve done a few similar themed games now but this one still stands out for its clever use of space, range of puzzles, and a padlock we’d not seen before. As always the hosting at cryptology is great, and the room was just really good fun with lots to replay in our heads when we left.
Originally built for a different venue, I believe cryptology has bought this game and reinstalled it here… it plays well, flow was good but the room is almost in 4 parts. Without spoiling anything. 1st part- frustrating
2nd/3rd part themed great and some great puzzles
4th part - disappointing ending with no real sense of achievement.
Afterlife is a room which was originally run by X-it games, based in Shipley, and we had been meaning to venture up there…then COVID happened of course, scuppering our plans! However, during the lockdowns Cryptology announced the exciting news that they would be opening Afterlife right here on our doorstep in Sheffield! Opportunity knocked, and of course what could we do but get ourselves booked in for as soon as we possibly could upon its opening?!
A thoroughly enjoyable adventure which combines good puzzles with a fun sense of exploration and stunning set design. While there are a few places where individual teams might get stuck, this is still a room that I would absolutely recommend if you're even vaguely nearby.
A truly spectacular game with a great storyline and non-stop adventure from the very first second. There are many different spaces to explore as you battle to save your life. We loved this game and really can’t fault it.
