After playing Cast Away (review will follow), we also played this game at this company. The game is a classic detective/spy game and in this case that says pretty much all. In plain language, not much of a set, other than the typical indoor apartment/office that characterize these kinds of games.

The beginning of the game is at least interesting and like most of the games in Northern Spain, riddles nonstop await you. I think all riddles fans would be quite happy with the rooms up there. This room had a mixture of some interesting riddles with several that to be honest were rather work than fun. The moment you need a calculator to start doing some calculations the fun usually stops. And as an engineer I have nothing against numbers, but in my opinion if the resolution of a puzzle looks more like an elementary school test, just for the sake of it, then it should not even be there. Not to mention that said puzzles did usually not have any context or background for them to be conceived like that.

I honestly feel that there were much better rooms than this one in our trip. And while I enjoy a lot classic rooms, at the end of this game I was rather happy that it ended. Particularly the last part of the game was an anticlimax. Also, for safety reasons the idea of how the last room was conceived was not implemented as it should be and that does not contribute to the ambiance.

The room is located just across their other room, so in one visit you can tackle both rooms. My advice would be playing this one first (as a warmup game) and not the other way around.
