We have finally found the entrance to the secret temple. Inside lies a priceless artifact that will give us the power to control the entire world! Today, is the day when the villains will win for once!

🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE

  • Your journey will start before you even get to the "portal" to the temple. We were very entertained by the introduction.

  • The craftsmanship of the props and set design were top-notch. We were amazed by how real the jungle felt. Are we in an Indiana Jones movie? The sounds of animals, thunder, and of course the characters in the storyline all contributed to making this experience extremely immersive.

  • Although we played the villain version of this game, we were lucky enough to also walk through the hero version as well. We were shocked at how different the games were even though they were staged in the same room. You'll also never notice the props that you didn't use in this game would be used in the other.

  • The goal was clear from the beginning. As we solved the puzzles, it felt like we were completing scenes from a movie. The finale really reminded me of the Golden Idol scene from Indiana Jones. I can't reveal any more than this...

🧩 MISSED THE MARK

  • We really enjoyed this room. Nothing to say here.

🏹 TAKE A SHOT?

If you had time to play just one of the versions then here's my take on which you should choose pending on your preferences. The villain version had puzzles that felt more difficult (especially a translation one that could be quite long). So if you want to challenge yourself, go for this version. The hero one had a couple of more special effects that would be more attractive to some people. Either way, you'll have a good time no matter which version you choose. All I know is, after the game ended, I was eagerly waiting for that post-credit scene.
