Some really lovely ideas in this game with a naturally unique setting. We found the flow for this game to be a little off due to some difficult searches (purely a taste thing) but the puzzles themselves were enjoyable and made clever use of the cab space in the ambulance.

It's always interesting when you play an Escape Room and it's not actually a room, having played escape games in a prison van this then attracted some interest. Its also worth noting, you don't have to escape as such, this is a logic deduction puzzle that you can only solve when you've solved the other puzzles around. It's also worth noting that you only get one chance to correctly identify the solution or its an insta-fail.

Gameplay is relatively linear From puzzle to puzzle but some of the puzzles can be oblique in nature and not overly well sign posted as to what you have to do to progress. There are some good ideas here in a potentially interesting environment but I think the game as it stands lets it down.
