- Overall rating:
Exit the Game (Málaga, Spain): Operation Kandinsky

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.

- Overall rating:
Rock Escape Rooms (Gibraltar): Casino

A fun game with a structure that should give enthusiasts decent value for money while not being too intimidating for first-timers.

- Overall rating:
X-Door (Málaga, Spain): Haunted Prison

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.

- Overall rating:
Torrexcape (Alhaurín del Torre, Málaga, Spain)

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.

- Overall rating:
Prison Island Benálmadena (Málaga, Spain)

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.

- Overall rating:
Indizio (Köln/Cologne): Santa's List

A Christmassy delight with charming decoration, solid puzzles and a nice flow through the game. It might be a Christmas-themed room but don’t let that influence you – this is the sort of feelgood game that is fun to play at any time of the year.

Berlin Escape Review: Outopia (formerly Claustrophobia)

A review of Vault 13, Museum of Contemporary Art and Pirate’s Hut. Great decoration and enjoyable puzzles with one game standing out for unique player interaction and another for unusual theming and decoration.
