Our opinion. An animation is very nice, conducted by two true actors that guide the small filibusters between 5 and 10 years on the right tracks. A presence – reassuring for parents – allowing hackers-facilitators to adapt the flow of the game. Smooth or fright depending on the age of the players!

Our opinion . In this game, the adrenalin is always at its maximum. An escape game? It’s a term well simplistic as it is transcended. The actors are terribly gifted. The backgrounds are teeming with detail. Theatre immersive, inspired video games (for alternative) and movies of Fincher… An excellent thriller which you are the hero.

MAFIA DISTRICT. Little brother of the bunker zombie, this second escape game from Team Time has absolutely nothing to do with his younger brother. Except, perhaps, the lighting failed…
The principle. all in All, was it really a good idea to upset a baron of the mafia-colombian? You here is a bag made of jute on the face, prisoner of a gloomy basement, a reduced particularly oppressive. The puzzles to solve are all the same and you will get out of your comfort zone.
Our opinion. Few searches in this setting of the gaol, stripped, on the other hand a lot of manipulations and puzzles of a very relieved – you’re in one of the escape games the hardest of Paris. With, as a bonus, a surprise guest may be a little more up the tension…
