My husband and I played this game after playing The Alp, also by E-scape Rooms, as we thoroughly enjoyed it and wanted to play more of their games. We also really enjoyed Detention and found there to be plenty of challenging puzzles to keep us occupied. I hope they bring out more games as we'll certainly be playing them if they do. We love playing escape rooms in real life but we don't often get the time to so having some good online games to play instead from home is great.

I really enjoyed this game.  The digital interface was very smooth and everything was clear and precise.  Good puzzles, especially the last one which had me stumped for a bit, but it was my own mistake that held me back.  Would recommend!

Reviews by escape room review sites

Detention is your classic play-at-home escape room from E-Scape rooms and although it’s not as magical as the fantastic The Alp and Sword of Drakul, it holds its own in the genre as a fun space packed with enjoyable puzzles to solve collaboratively with friends. Since lockdown has ended, I still appreciate games like this being made and put on the market as a way to stay connected with friends who don’t live in the same city as me. Detention is a perfect game like that and would be excellent for friends, family or just about anyone to play together.
