The best introduction to a game Iโ€™ve ever seen, extremely immersive from the get go. A diverse range of puzzles that all fit within the magical world created. 

There was an excellent use of space and a good culmination to the story at the end  

For me one section was too dark to enjoy which impacted play and there was no way to increase the lighting, hence the lower score. Otherwise it is absolutely the 5* that other reviewers have given.

Reviews by escape room review sites

I wanted to play this game since quite some time based on the many positive reviews it had received, but it was not available in English back then, so we had to patiently wait for the necessary translations to be made. Magic is a topic that has been used a lot in escape rooms, most of the times associated with Harry Potter resulting in dozens of magic school rooms and otherwise with the well-known magician named Houdini. I did not know what to expect of this game, as I do not tend to read the description of rooms in advance and prefer to be surprised on the spot.
