A review of Huxley, the most talked-about VR escape room. Good puzzles, pretty sets and, surprisingly, a genuine sense of exploration both physically and virtually.
A review of the non-VR games we played at Exit Game: Biggs and Game of Crowns. Both were pretty but flaws in other parts of the game tempered the experience.
A review of THE ROOM, Berlin’s best escape venue and home to The Lost Treasure, The Best of Berlin and Go West. Three great games with amazing theming and good, logical puzzles. If you’re ever in Berlin, THE ROOM should be on your to do list.
A review of three of the games at Final Escape: Robot Paranoia, Prison Break and Steampunk Puppeteer. Three good games with Robot and Puppeteer having amazing set design and theatre while Prison Break had an older feel but stronger puzzles. Robot and Prison Break also had a fantastic sense of exploration.
Reviews of Jackpot and Cyber Attack, two fun games set in an alternate world where the Illuminati reign. With logical puzzles, great set design and good flow I’d recommend both but Jackpot had the edge across the board.
A game that puts story and decoration to one side to focus on puzzles. If you’ve never played a “white room” before, then I think the surprise element here will impress but of the three I’ve played, this is my least favourite.
A review of Andere Welt, a 90-minute game with the vaguest of theme but plenty of puzzles. there are plenty of faults in the room
A review of the three games we played at Cat in the Bag. Two fun games with reasonable theming and good puzzles plus one highly original game that unfortunately we hit a lot of problems with. Not high up my list in Berlin but definitely a solid venue.
A round-up of the 31 rooms that we played in Hamburg in late November 2017 including a summary of which rooms to play if you don’t have time to read the individual articles.
A review of the two games at Fluchtweg. A couple of reasonable experiences which have been created with love but struggle to match up to the quality of the other games in Hamburg.
