This is the best one out of the Unlocked family, but it still isn't great.
The theme has much more impact on the story and the game play here, it's original for a digital game.

Again, didn't like the fact that you need to call a US number or use a hint to get around it.

This was fairly substantial here.

I'm not an escape room expert but, with one exception, the puzzles were either trivially easy or, at their hardest, only slightly challenging. The theme and implementation were excellent

The Escape Game have been one of the more prolific creators of play at home games this year; in addition to their avatar games, they’re now up to four digital online experiences. This one is not part of their Hahn narrative, but has a similar feel: you are agency operatives investigating wrongdoing and trying to hunt down the perpetrator, who in this instance is a scientist involved in some dubious research.

The puzzles revolved around different science subjects like biology, chemistry, etc...There was no need to know any high school science from school (whew!) to solve these puzzles. Many were logic, deduction, pattern recognition, etc. We enjoyed all of the puzzles except for one which we thought could use more clarification with the clues. By now we've kind of noticed a trend to the ending of TEG games...My question is will we ever catch the bad guy? I guess we'll have to wait till the next episode to find out...
