James Bloodworth expert says:

Taking its inspiration from 1989 film "The Abyss", this game sends you to the bottom of the ocean..  Once again the scenery and props are excellent and completely in keeping with the theme, there's a couple of superb reveals but it let down by the ending, or rather the lack of one, the game just ends and doesn't really tell you anything.  After such a strong room it definitely ended with a whimper and that probably makes this room the weak link at the venue (but still worth your time).

Avissos is a deep sea adventure: deep in the Marianas Trench, the scientists at an underwater laboratory have mysteriously vanished, and you've been tasked with discovering their fate. As an extra complication, seismic readings indicate that there's a major earthquake due in about an hour, giving you a time limit on your investigations.
The underwater research station is suitably claustrophobic, and has been put together with excellent attention to detail. With metal surfaces and strewn debris ...
Abyssi wärmer könnte es sein in der Unterwasserstation. Ich habe gefroren. Ein relativ leichter ER für 2-3 Personen. Es gibt ein paar nette technische Spielereien, alles in allem kann Avissos einem Vergleich mit 20.000 L.U.T.S. bei Escaped aber nicht standhalten.
