⭐⭐⭐★★ – “The Chaos Engine” – Realmz, Perth


“The Chaos Engine” – Realmz, Perth –  3/5 stars

Stepping into the room for “The Chaos Engine” was an immersive delight, as the theming transported me flawlessly into the intended environment. The attention to detail was evident, from the props to the set design, creating a cohesive atmosphere that truly resonated with the room’s theme. As I ventured further, I discovered that the puzzles were not just challenging but intricately tied to the environment, enhancing the immersive experience.

The logical flow of the puzzles was a highlight, effectively complementing the overarching narrative. Each puzzle seemed to naturally progress from the previous one, forming a seamless journey that kept me engaged. While I was engrossed in the task at hand, I couldn’t help but notice that the volume of the speakers and the immersive music fell slightly short of fully captivating me. Elevating these audio elements could have elevated the overall engagement and immersion.

The pre-show video, while visually cartoony, did its job in providing context. However, I believe a more realistic portrayal could have heightened the anticipation and set the mood more effectively. Despite these minor quibbles, the puzzles presented a satisfying challenge that required thoughtful problem-solving. With a team of two, I was wholly absorbed in deciphering the intricate puzzles that enhanced the gameplay.

A point of disappointment was the clue system. When assistance was required, ringing a bell summoned the host, who unfortunately broke the immersion by just wandering in and giving a hint.. This disconnection from the room’s atmosphere could have been avoided, as it momentarily disrupted the flow.

In conclusion, “The Chaos Engine” had an immersive start, logically connected puzzles, and a healthy challenge level. To fully realize its potential, an improvement in audio elements and a more seamless transition for clue assistance could elevate the overall experience. Despite these areas for enhancement, the escape room still managed to offer an engaging and enjoyable adventure.
