A round-up of the games we’ve played in and around Malaga including Prison Island, ParaPark and Torrenigma – by no means a complete set but at least something to point you in the right direction.
A quirky room that I wouldn’t recommend to beginners but will be interesting to some enthusiasts. Don’t expect lots of puzzles but do expect a more “real” ending to the game.
A fun game with a structure that should give enthusiasts decent value for money while not being too intimidating for first-timers.
A classic prison start and unusual ending sandwiching a set of fun puzzles led to a very solid experience and one of my favourites in Málaga.
A basic game that will do OK in a small town with no escape room experience but which was lacking when compared to Málaga’s offering which are just half an hour away.
Fun from start to finish, with reasonable decoration, solid challenges and a decent chain of puzzles at the end.
A solid game with fun puzzles, a nice sense of exploration and the most complex scoring system I’ve come across in a long time!
A collection of repeat-as-often-as-you-want games that challenge mentally and physically. A really fun experience that I think will become more prevalent over time.
At its heart, a genuinely good game, but utterly ruined by the cluing system and some breaks to standard escape room conventions. A place I came out of incredibly frustrated, feeling that you could improve the game immensely by making just three or four small changes that don’t really affect the fundamentals.
In a quiet seaside town you might expect a relatively basic game, but what we found was a strong room that would stand up well in any market. It’s got plenty of interesting and logical puzzles, is well decorated and weaves in a story that you can choose to take or leave.
