60 minutes

A missile is on its way to Brighton and you’ve only got 60 minutes before it lands.
Luckily you have the keys to your Grandad’s old Cold War bunker, but it is not in good shape. You’ll have to use your hour wisely to fix up the bunker and bring it back online in order to survive!
In this game, communication is king because your team will be split at the start, with half taking a different side each and only a small opening to communicate and pass items between the two halves.

Quite a stressful room, hard to work out how much you have left to do in the time remaining. Great start splitting the team up forcing you to communicate. Enjoyed this one.

Team size: 2 Outcome: Successful escape!

A clever room to utilise a small space, by splitting the team up and forcing you to communicate to progress it engages and requires little room. An inventive twist on securing yourself in a room rather than escape. Some elements of the puzzles were disjointed and a good room for logical thinking escapists. Sadly no real elements for more physical/technical players.

Reviews by escape room review sites

We were being bombed by the northerners in this Brighton Escape room at Pier Pressure – find out whether we secured our bunker or whether the radiation got to us first!

Broken, currently Pressure Point's newest game, is set in a nuclear bunker. Following the venue's penchant for putting an unusual spin on a familiar setting, you're not infiltrating a bunker or trying to break out of one - instead, this is an ageing home-made bunker, which you need to quickly repair before the nuclear first strike hits. Despite the impending Armageddon, this isn't handled as a grim game. Broken may not be as light-hearted as its sister game Murder on the Dancefloor, but it share...

A fun game with a great balance of puzzles. I loved the unusual theme, the clever structure, the strong set and the confident finale. Pressure Point seem to have the knack of creating games that feel really polished and leave you with that hard-to-define feeling of "flow"."
A solid room where you’re trying to barricade yourself in rather than escape. I preferred their other rooms but this was still a good room with decent puzzles and a solid ending
