We’ve already reviewed Bust Out Escape Room’s newer games. We played Camp Crystal Lake mainly to see where this company started. Plus, this game caterers to fandom and still quite popular.
Camp Crystal Lake was a fun old-school escape room. The jump scares created fun moments (and not terrifying ones) and with each act, the scene changed in ways were didn’t see coming.
We expect that the third act impresses many newer players, for whom the novelty outweighs the lack of polish in execution.
Play Camp Crystal Lake for the theming, but know that it doesn’t quite capture the Friday the 13th slasher horror vibe that well. It’s an escape room through and through, with a bit of adventure tossed in. It’s was a strong early outing from a company who went on to up the caliber of both puzzles and adventure.
Who is this for?
- Adventure seekers
- Puzzle lovers
- Friday the 13th fans
- Any experience level
- Players who don’t need to be a part of every puzzle
- Dramatic scene changes
- Playful mid-game sequence
- The jump scares
