“Moriarty has abducted Dr Watson and threatens to kill him. Sherlock Holmes needs your help to save his friend and defeat Moriarty!”
Performance: We saved Dr. Watson in 75 minutes (out of the 90 minutes we were allowed), using a small hint during the final puzzle.
Difficulty: The escape is not that difficult and should be accessible to everyone, but will probably still present enough challenges for seasoned escapers. The record time so far is 65 minutes.
At the same venue: Gamescape also hosts three more traditional escape games: The Jail of “La Bastille”, Interview with Gustave Eiffel and the most recent Gentleman Burglar. I haven’t played the latter, but it has been described by my colleagues from experienceimmersive.fr as a very good experience – you can read their review in French here.
Elsewhere in the Escape Galaxy: In a different manner, Mindfall from the Lock Academy also offers a mix between treasure hunt and escape game through the city (see the review in French here).
In French: Read the review of this game in French by Virginie from Expérience Immersive here.
