📖 THE STORY

You have an important mission and the victory of the war lies in your hands. If you can successfully infiltrate this submarine and launch a missile at the enemy's submarine in an hour, you'll be crowned the hero of all times. Do you think you have what it takes?

🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE

  • The dim red and green lighting mixed well with the storyline. The various stations and numerous buttons also made us feel like we just stepped foot into the control room of the submarine.

  • One of the latter puzzles definitely created a sense of urgency. We felt the sweat coming down our spines as we try to launch the device in the nick of time.

  • The final prop that we had to use towards the end had some special effects and sounds build in that made the conclusion special. The act felt very realistic and it was the perfect way to complete the mission.

🧩 MISSED THE MARK

  • Some of the tasks that we had to accomplish were lacking directions. Since the puzzles were non-linear, we were unsure which act triggered what device to open or unlock. By adding sound for confirmation or lighting up certain areas would help resolve this issue. Also because the lights are dim in this room, certain name plaques were harder to read. This also made us miss some of the cluing. Perhaps adding some lights directly on top would be helpful.

  • There was a fairly complicated deduction puzzle at the beginning and our clip board did not erase for some reason. It definitely made the puzzle more challenging.

🏹 TAKE A SHOT?

We've played a bunch of submarine themed escape room by now. Most of them are great at set designs (like this one) but puzzle wise it's quite similar in the sense that it's mostly task oriented. I would have loved to see more of the "infiltration" (like starting the game out by us trying to sneak in using certain tools) aspect of the storyline versus mostly concentrating on button switches. However I do think this game has a pretty unique ending that we haven't seen before that made it feel more authentic than the others. Full disclosure, this game was also purchase from another builder. But the creator has one that he Is building in house as we speak. We look forward to seeing his original creativity as we took a sneak peek and it definitely looks intriguing enough for us to want to go back in the near future!
