These mini mission based puzzle games were really enjoyable. Each mission had about 4-5 pages that you would need to print and cut to solve the puzzles. The game was designed with easier levels going to harder levels as the missions progressed. The puzzles are to be downloaded from their website. The app purchase of $0.99 came with a prerecorded mission story and a keypad to confirmed your answers. Each mission are timed and they are different with each mission. Clues will populate only when a certain amount of time has passed by. This was quite nerve-racking for me as we rarely had to play digital game on a timer. It did make the missions more exciting and at the same time more challenging.
There were a lot of puzzles that required visualization which was pretty cool since we don't encounter too many of those types in escape games. At times they also felt like IQ tests. We enjoyed switching to a different puzzle mode.
The company provides a free trial of mission 1 for you to test out before deciding if you like to purchase the others. They are confident for a reason as we were instantly hooked and played all 5 missions at once. We can't wait for the next episode but in the meantime, they are some free missions made by their fans that you should definitely check out on their website!
