Fun.  The website is well done.  The puzzles are a little on the easy side for veteran puzzlers, but there's a nice interactional bit which is unique relative to other digital hunts.  This is more like a collection of puzzles with a vague plot tying them together.

Very similar to their free offering, but with a veneer of a story there, as well as an ending.  It's only worth a half-star less because this one costs money πŸ™‚

An amazing game - I played their free online game (Palace of Destiny), and I had to try the Ruby Palace. It was certainly worth the $20. Puzzles were creative, engaging, and intuitive. The website itself is clean and well designed too.

Reviews by escape room review sites

If you are a fan of "Palace of Destiny" (a free online puzzle adventure by Palace Games), you'll want to continue your journey to "The Ruby Palace". The interface is pretty much the same in terms of entering a room that has a few other rooms with a common theme. You'll need to combine the clues in all the rooms to unlock the door with a password in order to continue on to the next room. There's a self guided hint system if you get stuck. There were definitely a few added surprises in "The Ruby Palace" that we haven't seen in "Palace of Destiny".
