You'll receive a zoom and inventory link after booking this game. Our avatar Jayson was in character right from the beginning. They play such a great villain. I must say they definitely perfected their villain laugh (MUHAUHAUHA). And it's contagious because we all started to do it during the game play.
The 360 view in the inventory portal really helped our team as we're able to identify what we wanted to see and then directed Jayson for a closer look. It also helped us to divide and conquer during non-linear parts of the game play. Jayson also had great control over the camera. They knew when it's time to rush and zoom in and when to slowly pan out. The entire game felt prerecorded but you know it's happening in real time.
The room's main focus was on the laser gun. The puzzles were all designed around turning on the Destruct-O-Ray at the end. The puzzles were not too difficult but all made sense with the room's theme. There's an interactive puzzle in there that would normally need more than one person to complete but Jayson made it work with just himself. It was entertaining for us to watch but they're definitely going to lose a few pounds after this game.
We love it when the avatar knows what type of player they are working with. Jayson was able to play the game like they're a member of our team. They did not purposely delay any of our commands to drag out play time. We completed the game in 33 minutes or so but we loved every minute of it.
We have never laughed so hard during an online escape room. Because of the explosive energy Jayson was able to provide to the players, we felt it during the entire game play and that made the game feel 10 times better. I would rather play the online version versus the in person game because I don't want to miss out on Jayson's performance. Of course we can't forget the silent helper in the back end. Andrew did a great job with sending us clues that we needed and removing the ones we've used in real time. It's because of the perfect collaboration, we succeeded with our evil plan. Now lets go destroy another Megatropolis!
Exceptional avatar interactivity
Puzzles were all sensible and fun
Unique Villain theme
Overall game flow didn't miss a beat
The quality of life enhancements and gentle guidance can make the game feel easier
This live avatar guided escape room was a blast. Our avatar's dedication and enthusiasm to their character and their craft made the experience ever so enjoyable. Their well rehearsed voice acting and camera set up made the room come to life; perhaps even more so than if we had done it in person. The puzzles weren't too difficult and were fair and intuitive. The online clue tracking app also fit well with the overall execution. I would highly recommend this remote escape room to anyone.
As a person who is not at all into all of the superhero/villain hype I wasn’t very enthusiastic about this escape room. However, within the first 30 seconds of the game starting, I had the hugest smile on my face. This experience is one I will never forget. The only negative I can even think of (and this is purely nitpicking) is the labels were sort of hard to disambiguate. Honestly though, this experience was one filled with laughter, fun, and some awkward duh moments. Jayson's character was amazing. Their big energy alongside smart puzzles was the best online escape room experience I’ve had. I will 100% be participating in another one of their escape rooms and recommend it to anyone. I think this puzzle in particular is fun regardless of your skill level.
(If you do decide to try this game, please remember to let them know that you heard it from"ESCAPETHEROOMers"!)
