Another lost temple room is the first thing that comes to my mind, when reviewing this room. It´s a room that lacks the massive dimensions of some of the Greek rooms and therefore it is similar to other rooms proposing the same topic as you can find in different places (including Athens) and it does not excel in its appearance, although it has several mechanisms, which are really well done and provide for cool distinguishing features.

Some of the puzzles were really creative and original and I had not encountered them before. There were not that many puzzles, but there were a few complex ones. Some a little bit repetitive after you understood the dynamics. Maybe for this reason, it was very easy to get stuck, given that there were not so many activities and you could spend quite some time with one puzzle. This is something we did not particularly enjoy, specially since from the beginning of the game you are confronted with a rather complex puzzle with some interpretation issues and we got a little but frustrated. By the time we struggled with the second one, our flow was down the drain.

Obviously, this is a very personal assessment based on our experience. I can imagine that if you recognize and solve the puzzles in a more dynamic way, you will probably enjoy the game more than we did. This is something that I have experienced in other rooms, which are “lock free”, where there is sometimes no clear input and it’s difficult to understand what they expect you to do. In any case, I appreciate the intention behind the puzzles, in particular the few original elements and would have liked to enjoy it more.
