“Discover the world of pirates and become part of a treasure hunting mission!”
|Game experience: VERY GOOD|
|If you enjoyed playing pirates as a kid, this room will delight you! Even if the decor is not the most sophisticated you can find out there, this room has a delightful “artisanal” feel and a variety of well-thought mechanisms that will immerse you in the pirate atmosphere. For all fans of Pirates of the Carribean or Secret of Monkey Island!|
|The musical immersion and light effects.
Several beautiful devices (padlocks, hint-giving prop…).
A very fun mechanical device mid-game that will really make you feel like in a pirate movie.
A few basic elements of decor (contemporary ceiling, simple paintings…)
|A large variety of puzzles.
A parallel structure with many puzzles that should keep everyone in the team busy.
A couple of puzzles were a bit ambiguous – you’ll need good eyes in several respects!
|The possibility to play not only in English, but also in French (with translated hints, introductory video…).
A friendly and passionate host, who really gives his best to make you experience the best possible adventure.
Difficulty: With a team of 2-3 enthusiasts or 4-5 beginners, this room should be both challenging enough and doable. The success rate is 70% with between 0 to 3 hints.
Performance: I played the room on my own and needed a few additional minutes to escape, having used 5-6 hints.
Elsewhere in the escape galaxy: If you like pirate environments, Secret of the Black Pearl in Paris (France) or Pirate’s Prize in Toronto (Canada) have somewhat more elaborate decors, though less of a feeling of adventure as in this game.
