1. The theming is very poor. It doesn't feel Wild West at all, especially if you play the 5* difficulty as you don't go behind the bar which is the most western looking part of it. The worst bit of theming had to be that you escape a wild west room with a ***?!2. A lot of the puzzles have nothing to do with the theme or (lack of) story. The final puzzle being **** makes no sense compared to the rest of the game. When you consider for example that in 'Outbreak' the last puzzle is '***', this makes sense. **** had nothing to do with anything.
3. The five star difficulty was far too easy. We were out in 39 mins with minimal pointers - having played Sabotage and got out with 11 seconds to spare that feels five star. This was extremely simple and also leads into point 4 which is...
4. There's barely anything to do! Especially once you're in the second room it's an absolutely huge space and essentially all you need is the little bits for the arrows and to be able to count a few things on the walls. Oh and to look at a door for a numbers. That's literally it for room two and on two separate occasions I found myself standing saying 'I actually have nothing to do here', which is bad considering there were only two of us.
We had a fun time escaping Wanted as cowboys with the rest of my family. Some clever puzzles and a nice ending.
