"3D Escape Game: Chinese Room" has 5 levels and there are all different types of puzzle challenges along the way. The first level of this game reminded me a little of "The Room" by Fireproof Games mainly because it was one box inside of a room that had so many secret compartments to unlock. But as you continue on, the other levels explore other parts of the rooms.

The graphics and music was beautifully designed to create a authentic experience. When you open a box or unlock a compartment, the unveiling is truly cinematic. It many not be for everyone. Much like IRL escape rooms, some players are just there to solve and escape as fast as possible and some players are there to absorb every moment of the experience.

The controls are fairly simple but it does take some getting used to. Certain objects will require a twist, turn, push, pull, or click type of finger gesture on the screen. The game provides you with a brief tutorial on how the controls work. Like most app games, there's an inventory for the items that you collect. What's interesting is that the items are 3-D, so you can examine every part of it.

If you're stuck on a puzzle or a "mini-game", there's an option to skip it by using 30 gold coins. You can also accumulate 5 gold coins in exchange for watching an advertisement.

A majority of the puzzles required a search and find aspect to it. Most of it was straight-forward and simple to understand. None of it was language-based, so anyone should be able to understand the puzzles. In comparison with their other game - "3D Escape Room Detective Story", which focused more on the storyline and puzzles, this game focused a lot more on the graphics and the ambience.

Personally, I really enjoyed "3D Escape Game: Chinese Room", as it reminded me of parts of China that I recently visited and I thought it was beautifully designed from beginning to end! As a puzzle-lover and a fan of immersive theatre, I thought that everything was well-executed and provided a truly cinematic experience!
