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.

Netherlands Escape Review: Project Escape (Nijmegen)

Great games focusing on immersion and making use of strong in-character introductions to get the experiences off to a fantastic start. Two of their games were good but Ramkraak is a truly great game with an amazing intro, solid puzzles, a neat mechanic and an awesome ending. Well worth a detour.

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.

Berlin Escape Review: House of Tales

A review of three games at one of the top Berlin venues – Executioner, The Secret of the Pharaohs and Illuminati. Beautiful rooms with solid puzzles and a great sense of exploration.

Berlin Escape Review: Exit Game VR (Huxley)

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.
