Exit: The Haunted Roller Coaster

Room-in-a-box, Jan 2020

Rated 3.5 out of 5
Like its sister game House of Riddles, this comes with a low difficulty rating and a linear, one-puzzle-at-a-time structure. Also like House of Riddles, it mixes pages of story into the clue booklet. Perhaps Exit was concerned that they weren’t provi… (more)

Exit: The House of Riddles

Room-in-a-box, Jan 2020

Rated 3 out of 5
I wouldn’t like to suggest that Exit are scraping the barrel for their theme ideas, but the premise for House of Riddles is simply that you’re in a house… full of puzzles… kinda like one of those ‘escape room’ things. Although to be fair, there’s… (more)

Exit: Mysterious Museum

Room-in-a-box, May 2019

Rated 3 out of 5
In Exit’s ever-expanding range, Mysterious Museum is pitched to be less challenging, intentionally one of their easier games. Puzzle difficulty is a very subjective matter, but Museum is made more approachable by being much more linear than their nor… (more)

Exit: Sinister Mansion

Room-in-a-box, May 2019

Rated 3.5 out of 5
Exit follow a very consistent, well-defined style of puzzle game, and after reviewing eight or nine of them there’s not a whole lot to say about a new one unless it differs from the others in some significant way; and Sinister Mansion does not.

Exit: The Catacombs of Horror

Room-in-a-box, Oct 2019

Rated 4 out of 5
For those who enjoy lining up all their Exit games in a neat little line of matching boxes on the shelf, it will have come as bad news that Catacombs of Horror is a double-size game, packaged in an outsized box that completely fails to match the othe… (more)

Exit: The Sunken Treasure

Room-in-a-box, Aug 2018

Rated 3 out of 5
Each year brings a new crop of titles from the EXIT line of boxed escape games, a reliably polished product that faithfully follows their established format while managing to feel fresh and free from recycled puzzle ideas. The latest batch of boxes i… (more)

Exit: Huxley

Berlin, Nov 2017

Rated 4 out of 5
Huxley is only the second virtual reality escape game I’ve played, and so it remains a challenge to write a fair review. The aim is to assess the game, but with such a new format it’s far from straightforward to tease out what’s impressive about the … (more)

Exit: The Forbidden Castle

Room-in-a-box, Nov 2017

Rated 4 out of 5
Last of the Exit games until they finish translating the next four in the series, Forbidden Castle is marked as a harder game (4/5 difficulty, where Polar Station and Forgotten Island are marked as 3/5) and is my favourite so far. It follows the usua… (more)

Exit: The Forgotten Island

Room-in-a-box, Nov 2017

Rated 3.5 out of 5
It was Forgotten Island that finally made me surrender and start playing the Exit games in a way that marked the components – though so far still only in ways that I could reverse to restore everything to its original condition. But for most players … (more)
