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.
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.
A round up of the six games we played across two Escape World venues in Amsterdam. Good theming, logical puzzles and fun hosts. Definitely a great option if you’re looking to play lots of games in one location.
A brief round up of seven games in Aberdeen. None were must plays but The Locked Door provided a very solid escape room in the form of the Heist
Last month’s news from the London scene. Get it while it’s hot!
A well-made but fairly traditional escape room with an all-round solid experience.
A puzzle-packed escape room that makes no pretence to be about escaping and instead is all about trying to solve as many puzzles as possible in the hour. Prepare for frustration and fun in equal measure!
A fairytale locked in an escape room. A charming room where you should forget about the time and just soak up the atmosphere.
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.
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.
