This is the perfect family game if you want to get your little ‘uns interested in escape rooms. Get them away from the computer, and put this game in front of them. It is good clean fun that will get their brains whirring away!
In my opinion, there aren’t enough space games. Mission to Mars manages to be fun, but also has the potential to be educational. It is on the easier side, making it ideal for a family game night
Flight 927 felt like a step up on the previous season by Trapped. Puzzles were fair, story made sense, and it kept us occupied for nearly an hour. If you need a break from a computer, then this is the game you’re looking for
Play it as intended, don’t get help, accept you may not complete it, and just enjoy the experience. This is a game to be played, to leave, to come back to, and to find your own eureka moments. Strap in, you’ll never have experienced anything like this before
It would be impossible to talk about Captain’s Treasure without using the words delightful, clever, joyous, or perfection. If you are lucky enough to live close enough to Swindon to hire Captain’s Treasure, pick your date and book it now. No really; Book now
The games by Co-Decode seem to be under-the-radar due to them being Print and Play, but really they are gems waiting to be discovered. Digging in Disguise, thanks to the improved interface is our favourite Oldervik game so far.
Puzzle enthusiasts will not enjoy this game, but those who like to get immersed in a story certainly will. With beautiful artwork and great narration, this is likely a game for those who enjoy experiences similar to Dungeons and Dragons
With a strong narrative, traditional escape room style puzzles, and a bit of magic, The Wizard’s Apprentice is ideal for a family game night, or perhaps just for introducing someone to the idea of an escape room.
Nothing to make this game stand out in the online escape room world, but we were actually surprised by this game. The ending felt a bit abrupt and most of our time was spent on one puzzle. If you’re a logic-fiend then you’ll likely get through in no time, but it’s not a bad way to spend an evening with friends (virtually).
I loved the aesthetics of this game, and the incredibly bonkers ending! The puzzles it had were good, but we couldn’t help but feel like it just needed a few more so we really felt satisfied. Saying that, this is still a game we’d recommend if you want a reason to get you friends together. More please Hourglass Escapes!
Every now and then a game appears out of nowhere and destroys all of the benchmarks for what I consider to be a truly exceptional online game. Showdown from 66 Minuten was one such game.
