Great continuation from part 1 with plenty more to do and way more involved. Avoid if you hate maths puzzles.

More to do than in Part 1, with the same cool interface.  Rather a lot of math!  A few points where I was a bit stymied, but overall a good experience.

Fun activity that does a good job of making you feel like you're actually controlling a little robot.  But it feels just a bit too short.  Combine this with Phase 1 and I think this is a 4-star experience.

Reviews by escape room review sites

The new breed of online digital escape games mostly fall into well defined types - most often webpage-based puzzles, some ARG (alternative reality game) style involving social media pages or Google Streetview, some point-and-click, some a hybrid of those. What Marvo have come up with doesn't really fit into any of those categories. I suppose point-and-click is closest, with some additional ARG elements, though that description is as misleading as it is useful. And what's worse is that for spoile...
Phase One lacked puzzles and felt like a warm up act for something bigger. Phase Two was the headliner, and delivered on the earlier promises.
To summarise, its safe to say that this is another very strong showing from the Marvo team, maybe even better than their first outing! Great effects and videography, brilliant use of technology and a more advanced level of puzzle, set this up to be a well rounded immersive experience which you wont forget in a hurry!
