Very fun point-and-click style game, in 360 environment.  A great game for teamwork, as we could all put our evidence on the evidence board and move things around to solve the case.  Good fun, would recommend.

This is a really solid telescope game!  We've played quite a few and this one rates up there with the best we've played so far.  There's loads to do and it kept us busy for a while!

We loved the style of this game. One of the best we have played and we play online escape rooms every weekend. This actually might be our favorite so far.

There was a nice atmosphere, nice puzzles, a great flow and we loved that you could go upstairs. 

The tech (telescape) worked well and we really felt like we got a lot of value out of this room even from home.

Reviews by escape room review sites

This is one of our favorite digital games translated from a physical escape room. The puzzles worked really well with the interface. It's one of those games that I actually felt like worked better as an online game (although I'm sure the set design would be amazing to see in person). The company may think about implementing the game as fully digitized game with build-in hint system and no game mastering. Regardless of which option you decide to go with, if you're a fan of murder mystery and love detective type of games, you'll definitely want to crack this case!
In real life, I’m sure that this would be a good game to play, fortunately even online it is great fun. Great Scott have done a great job of digitising their room and this will be one that we are recommending for a long time.

Who Killed Bugsy Marlowe definitely lives up to the ‘hype’ and my only regret is that I didn’t play this sooner! I absolutely love 1920s noir, murder mysteries, and escape rooms, so Bugsy Marlowe is a double thumbs up from me. I hope that at-home games like this one will be around to stay for a lot longer.

As the name suggests, it is a 1930s whodunnit and all the styling – props, decor and puzzles – are era-specific and great fun.
