A nice video led introduction to this virtual escape room. Itโ€™s a point and click style search which was okay. The first puzzle did need relatively careful clicking though which didnโ€™t seem to be required throughout (just one particular aspect). 

There are four rooms with puzzles in each. Seemed strange not be able to go back to the first room from the second, but very useful moving from third to second. 

The third room puzzle solved required another interaction which for 3 of our 4 (all separate laptops) players was fine but 1 took over five minutes to complete (thatโ€™s downgraded the score a bit as it just got boring). 

A nice three stage puzzle to end and another good bit of video.

Timings for finishing ranged from 58 mins to 1hr 2 mins simply because the cookies must be stored on each computer and not per the whole team. We were surprised at the sudden end but weโ€™ve been playing online rooms relatively slowly. Would have preferred a bit more but itโ€™s good enough.

Good value for money though, and a nice intro game for anyone who has yet to get into online escapes.

Not having done an online escape room before I didn't really know what to expect here, but having played plenty of RPG style games over the years this left me with that similar kind of vibe, which was a good thing. The puzzles are relatively tricky and progression felt seamless. Only issue was the dark contrast setting on the monitor meant one screen was just impossible to see without adjusting settings.

This game surprised us, and in a good way! Ok we got through it in no time at all and others may complete it quicker, but for only ยฃ8 it was surprisingly well put together and enjoyable to interact with.
