If this was your first escape room it is a great introduction. For us there was nothing new or different about the game but I cannot find many things to criticise the game for. We flew through it as the puzzles were nothing out of the ordinary. A solid game though.
This room was good fun. Enjoyed the puzzles, some clever things. Theming was nice and worked well with the storyline too. Locks wise, it was busy, lots of number locks and it was a case of find a number, try the locks, which is not terrible, but frustrating if you have worked the number out wrong.
For what it was though, I enjoyed it. I got told that some of the Escape franchises dont look after their rooms (this is my only experience with the escape franchise) but from what I saw, the room was clean, nothing was broken or worn, and i would go and play more of their rooms without hesitation.
It's....fine. Really basic design, very easy. I ran it on my own in 48 mins without really needing a clue. A bit near the end really isn't in keeping with the theme. Also it might seem fussy but a *lot* of the puzzles are really poorly written - really bad grammar and spelling.
