📖 THE STORY
We are hired to steal a rare art collection that was stolen by a thief from the museum. Let’s see how this pans out…
🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE
Although the decor of the room was not as impressive as some other Breakout Games that we’ve seen, we still enjoyed the puzzle elements of this room.
One puzzle in particular, incorporated physical and logical elements which ultimately gave us a strong and surprising ending.
We liked how Breakout Games tried to put us in the mindset of an actual thief and our entire game play was based on what a thief would do in these situations. The puzzles were intertwined within this thought process.
🧩 MISSED THE MARK
The initial space could use some more puzzle elements and decor as it felt like a waste of an area right now and the décor could also have more of a nighttime kind of feel. This could add a more “mysterious” feeling of breaking and entering.
Some props needed updating. There was a cool puzzle element that needed repairing and it would’ve added to the surprise element of the room if it had been working.
One puzzle was a bit confusing for us from a word play perspective.
🏹 TAKE A SHOT?
If you are good at picking locks, this is the room for you. Just kidding... then you’ll probably be good at every escape room! Some puzzles felt challenging with just the two of us but it’s definitely doable. The room is spacious enough for us to recommend an ideal group of 4 people. Release your inner “Bonnie & Clyde” and give this room a shot!
