Galactic War is a slick, visually alluring take on an alien spaceship theme. Taking place in a fairly small but efficiently utilized space, this room concealed many layers and reveals. There was a moderate amount of puzzle content, though since much of it was parallelizable, more experienced players would get the fullest experience on a lean 2-3 person team.
Encrypted Escape Room West Reading hit it out of the park with Galactic War, and I’m excited to return for whatever they create next.
All 4 rooms currently available at Encrypted Escape Room West Reading demonstrated a steady commitment to growth and experimentation, and Galactic War — their newest room — was an impressive display of just how far the creators have developed their tech skills.
During our marathon run of all 4 rooms, I observed how this standard of excellence is an equal partnership among owner, designer, general manager, and game hosts. Not only were the rooms well designed, but they were also meticulously maintained and reset. It’s clear that everybody involved genuinely cares about what they’ve created, their players’ experience, and the escape room industry more broadly.
