Deep in this underground laboratory we needed to find an anti-virus and save the world.
The set mainly consisted of low lighting and built-in furniture of the counter-and-cabinets variety. It was pretty standard lab escape room.
Amazing Escape’s The Virus was a standard escape room with a low level of difficulty.
Core gameplay revolved around searching and applying different tools to solve puzzles.
+ The Virus was at its best when we were manipulating different gadgets to further the gameplay.
– The more cerebral puzzles were pretty basic, though frequently unintuitive.
– In one section of The Virus, we were surprised and confused by a rather eye-catching red herring.
+ The antidote was beckoning to us. It was the most aesthetically pleasing prop in the gamespace. That added a bit of excitement to the culmination of our mission.
