In the "Wizard" game, we are students of the mighty wizard Tambeldor. Our training is almost ending but an evil warlock had just poisoned our teacher. We did not expect our final task to be to save his life...
This game used the same platform as "Voodoo School". There were a lot more items that were placed in the inventory system and it was quite helpful to have the build-in portal since we didn't have toggle through different screens. One suggestion we had would be to either have the avatar be more efficient with updating puzzle hints or make it automated. It was getting a bit overwhelming and would definitely help if the used items were deleted right away from the inventory.
Mike was quite speedy and did everything we asked efficiently. We did feel that the camera was more wobbly this time than our last game so hopefully that could be fixed with a harness or stand. The room decor was more to theme this time and we enjoyed the certain "magical moments" from the special effects. There were two puzzles we thought didn't translate as well to the online version. One was because it was quite difficult to instruct the avatar on what to do since the visuals were quite fast and the other was a physical puzzle that we could only really watch on the side. It would be great if there could be an added interactive puzzle that we could try on our own in the inventory system and follow along with the avatar.
This room was less linear and we were able to solve different puzzles simultaneously. All the puzzles had a close connection to the wizard world and that happens to be one of our favorite escape room themes. To us, this would've been a really fun room to play in person as there were a lot of visual and physical puzzles that we would've enjoyed. But since we can't travel right now, it was nice to be able to still "teleport" ourselves to Austria for 60 minutes!
