Review: Detective X, Break The Code @Penang

Break The Code Detective X
Break The Code Detective X

Rating: Number 3 after Mission-Q and Breakout. 
Mission Report: Failed. 3 codes short to the escape door.
Comrades: 6 (5 1st timers)
Handicap: 3 hints.

Gameplay: Solve puzzles to unlock numeric & alphabet locks. Clues and puzzles are similar to Escape Room@eCurve but less confusing as there are numbers to indicate which lock to solve first. Solving one lock will give clues to the next one.

Pros: What puts Break The Code above Escape Room@eCurve, the clue sticks to the theme. Somewhat. At least at the final bit which we didn’t get to. The theme is a murder mystery. Solve who’s the murder suspect to escape.

Cons: What puts Break The Code below Mission-Q & Breakout, there are no physical obstacles.

The “surprise” factor: Need to use one of the 5 senses which we don’t normally use in escape room games. There are also a couple of other gimmicks which I also didn’t get the chance to figure out.
