After having played both The Alp and Detention by E-scape Rooms, my husband and I played The Sword Of Drakul as we enjoyed their other games so much. We're actually gutted that they don't currently have any more online games as we would love to play more by them! This game was once again a great experience and filled with lots of good puzzles which were quite challenging at times! There were certain puzzles that had us stumped for a little while but we enjoyed the 'aha!' moment when we finally figured them out. We like the immersive setting of this game too. A great way to spend an evening when you don't have time to do out play a real-life escape room, play from home instead!

Really great telescape game!  It had a few things that needed to be fixed to make the game flow a bit better, but we had fun playing it.

Good level of difficulty. We got stuck at two points but I think that was more us having no brain cells/ trying to be too abstract. The theme was great and the music was legitimately amazing, I need it on Spotify. Overall, really fun! Also, I liked being able to see the other player's cursor but still be able to explore a bit on my own so we could both split up and work together. Got it on sale so it was even better value for money! Highly recommend!

Help find the Sword of Drakul and save the country from the dragons!

Completely digital but well made online escape room with reasonable puzzles. We were not big fans of the first room (chess-puzzles), but when the game progressed it got better. The second room had a nice decor and the audio puzzle was nice. Also a shield held a nice aha-puzzle. 

Collaboration made things a lot easier in room 3 but it wasn't needed. 

This telescape had a nice story/theme and it used the telescape platform well.

A nice game made in 360 using Telescape.  However, instead of a "real" room this is a virtual space made with computer-generated graphics.  SO the look of it was more like a video-game.  Good puzzles, especially enjoyed the goblin.

Reviews by escape room review sites

The Sword of Drakul seemed to take away a lot of the frustrations with their first game, The Alp, and this made for an enjoyable experience. The graphics were slick and the puzzles were solid, well done E-Scape Rooms, you’ve made a cracking game!

Compared to dozens of Telescape games out there, "The Sword of Drakul" proves to be a unique game that sets it apart from the others out there. Once the game loads, there will be a lengthy video with a cinematic storyline, music in the background and amazing graphics. This is not just a reproduction of a physical escape room, but a fantasy world that uses graphics and images to create the room. Hence, it can be seen that a lot of effort was put into creating this game.

I would say besides the minor issue regarding 1 puzzle mentioned above (which might have been fixed already at the time of writing), this is a well polished Point and Click game which most players would enjoy. For those who have played both The Alp and Detention, this was designed by the same designer, so if you like those games (like me), you will certainly enjoy "The Sword of Drakul"!

If we could give an award for the most exciting and dramatic intro to any at-home escape room game, The Sword of Drakul would claim it! Seriously, I felt like I was watching the intro to HBO’s latest fantasy drama rather than an escape room.
