ThinkFun Escape the Room Secret of Dr. Gravely’s Retreat – An Escape Room Experience

This product was recommended by Ted Mosby from CamperAdvise

This game is notable for a series of puzzles that require physical manipulation. These puzzles were a welcome addition to the game, helping to increase both the difficulty and variety of puzzles. Overall, we recommend this Escape Room Board Game for its high-quality materials, fun puzzle experience, and great value for any small group of escape room fans who want to play at home. The game’s structure is familiar to those who have played escape room board games. There are four envelopes, each with a different puzzle and possibly more envelopes. Correctly solving puzzles and verifying your solution with the solution wheel will grant you access to more envelopes, which will advance the story and the game.

Escape Room The Game

This product was recommended by Keenan Beavis from Longhouse Media Company

This game of 3 to 5 persons is not like the plain, old, boring board games. In fact, it successfully kept the thrill and mystery without risking the interest and fun of the players. Another good thing about this is that it has integration with the digital application Chrono decoder and the escape room which keep the chills and excitement rolling. This game, when optimized through the app, will transform into a thrilling and challenging game experience with pressuring timer and sound effects that can boost the player’s emotion and excitement. Indeed a perfect mystery case that can be played either with your family or friends.

Adventure Escape Mysteries

This product was recommended by Olivia Tan from CocoFax

Adventure Escape is a series of escape games from Haiku Games. They are a series of games that follow a protagonist trying to solve a mystery. At their core, each game has you solving mysteries and then getting out of danger alive. It features decent graphics , simple mechanics, and the storylines aren’t half bad. There are nine games in total and each one is free to download. There are in-app purchases, but they’re mostly just for stuff like hints.

All That Remains

This product was recommended by Olivia Tan from CocoFax

All That Remains: Part 1 is one of the newer escape games. The main character and his sister are trapped in a secret bunker by their father. Your goal is to escape it. The game includes a camera function to take pictures of clues. It also includes various puzzles, a decent soundtrack, and an auto-save feature. The Part 1 portion implies that more titles in the series are coming. We certainly hope so because this one was pretty good. It’s also relatively inexpensive at $1.49 with no in-app purchases.

The Island Castaway: Lost World

This product was recommended by Steven Walker from Spylix

Discover a forgotten fate in Lost Lagoon: The Trail of Destiny, a free hidden object game set on a desolate mystery island. Get ready to protect yourself against a mythological creature and get acclimated to the usual activities and gameplay in this unique survival game!

Survivors: The Quest

This product was recommended by Steven Walker from Spylix

Our top pick was Escape City, a great PC escape game. It’s a huge escape room on a tropical island. Escaping from the locals is a constant adrenaline boost as you are constantly exploring and surviving. Unbelievable, the base game is also free. The game’s charm, high stakes, and magnificent world full of human and animal predators won us over.

Doomsday Escape

This product was recommended by Steven Walker from Spylix

Doomsday Escape is the best escape room PC game we’ve ever played, and it’s straightforward. You are one of the last humans left alive in a post-apocalyptic world. From room to room, you must solve mini-puzzles, collect resources and food, and bring other survivors along. The goal? Getting out of your virtual nightmare. It won’t be simple – you’ll be bewildered and must avoid traps. The game also contains a leveling system for growth.

Zero Escape: The Nonary Games

This product was recommended by Jeff Mains from Champion Leadership Group LLC

Zero Time Dilemma is the last chapter in the Nonary series; it has nine hours, nine people, nine doors, and virtue’s final reward. The rich storyline of the Nonary series encompasses a large number of characters and puts the player’s dexterity to the test on a couple of fronts. When the cast must escape from a particular room, there are significant stakes at risk since the group’s existence depends entirely on their actions, collaboration, and general connections with one another. As a result of the inclusion of time travel and treachery, the Nonary Series will make players question not just their ability to solve each problem but also their ability to trust the individuals they meet in these games.

The House of Da Vinci

This product was recommended by Brent Hale from Tech Guided

This is a fantastic game. If you enjoyed The Room Games, you will enjoy this one as well. This is a difficult game that takes a great deal of thought and logic. The graphics are stunning. The 3D is fantastic.


This product was recommended by Brian Lee from Drill and Driver

Being associated with the Saw film series, the game is set between the first and second film after he was healed from a gunshot wound by the jigsaw killer. Detective taps have been placed in an insane asylum to be taught a life appreciation lesson. The goal of the game is to traverse the asylum, solve puzzles, disarm traps and eventually manage to get out. The player has the ability to search toilets and corpses to find items like weapons or clues that can help him fulfill his objectives. There are also mini games which are a major part of the game and they intensify the puzzles and challenges that have to be completed.

The Room

This product was recommended by Greg Clark from GSD London

The Room is the best escape game to play if you are getting bored and you are fond of the escape games. You can play it with your kids as well if they are around 16+ years of age. It is basically a puzzle video game, it is included in the category of scary games where the room is creepy and contains stuff similar to the horror games. It was basically developed by Fireproof games in September 2012.
