1 song that repeats throughout the game. Broken props. You can easily solve the puzzles without the clues which gets confusing. Good concept but dated and broken.

Fun theming, but definitely showing it's age in terms of the stylenof puzzles and prop wear and tear. We played as a 4 and found there wasn't really enough content to keep everyone occupied.

We had fun in this game, it’s nothing special, second part of the game felt very ‘worn’ with props having seen much better days. But you could tell it was built with passion, some basic and some clever puzzles which had our brains working. Liked the ‘clue system’ in the first part of the game and felt pretty immersed when ignoring the broken/worn props.

The final game in our schedule at Pressure Point was their 70s disco murder mystery, Murder on the Dancefloor. The winner of a dance competition has been murdered, and, as a group of disco stars yourselves, you decide to sneak into the dancehall and get to the bottom of what happened.

It's actually a game of two halves, with your first task being to find a way into the disco hall for your investigation. I'd describe that as a warm-up section, but it's more substantial than that. Whereas the lat...

An absolute joy to play. Interesting theme, beautiful execution, good, logical puzzles and plenty of humour thrown in. I don't know what Pressure Point's magic is, but they make games that just seem to flow really well and where you come out on a high.
Pressure Point have designed a special game, full of humour and clever puzzles, with a fantastic set and fun music, and we're just sad that we can’t play it again

It really was time to get our groove on with this 1970’s disco extravaganza. A team of four of us were feeling funky so we headed on down to Ashford to see what the noise was all about. Safe to say, we came away feeling as high as Simon Cowell’s waistband!
