Amsterdam Escape Review: Questomatica (formerly Claustrophobia)

Two games that are highly rated by enthusiasts but felt a little flat to me. Arcade Invasion had the potential for being brilliant but lacked direction and we encountered a real issue with the hinting. Wake up! didn’t have quite as much potential but delivered better. Both games are well worth a visit when you’re in Amsterdam though.

Amsterdam Escape Review: Boom Chicago and Locked.Amsterdam

Two more great Amsterdam games. Escape through Time was an excellent experience that very much felt on the theatrical end of escape rooms. Locked.Amsterdam was was a hard mission in a beautiful environment although at times those hard puzzles required a bit of a stretch.

- Overall rating:
The Panic Room Gravesend: The Gilman Hotel

A hotel where checking in is harder but checking out is harder. The puzzles weren’t amazingly exciting but the immersion was top notch and came at you on several levels.

- Overall rating:
The Panic Room Gravesend: The Dollhouse

A room that managed to blend concepts together. Horror and humour. The beautiful and the macabre. Some interesting puzzles and decent set design added up to a game that I found surprisingly enjoyable.
