Unlock! is a series of cooperative card-based escape adventures for up to six players. Each Unlock! game consists of sixty cards depicting objects, maps, and puzzles that can be activated, solved, or combined in an effort to access other cards and areas. The free companion app tracks the time allotted to win the game, while also offering hints and unlocking new, and necessary, elements. When the players believe they have figured out the code to escape each adventure, they will input the number into the app and escape the danger, or lose even more time in finding the real sequence. You start the game with 60 minutes on the clock...
The box includes a tutorial and three scenarios:
The Formula takes you into the tunnels of New York's subway system in search of an elusive chemist and the serum he's been developing.
Doctor Hoffman's laboratory is full of traps and puzzles you'll have to get past in order to obtain the serum and escape.
Squeek & Sausage is a cartoon adventure, in which you must try to stop the evil Professor Noside from activating his doomsday device.
The Professor is very clever, though, and you must be able to evade his traps in order to save the world.
The Island of Doctor Goorse is a complex and multifaceted mystery adventure set on a billionaire antique collector's island.
The crash-landing that got you there will separate players into two teams, adding yet another obstacle to achieving your brilliant escape.
*Unlock!, like escape rooms, is scenario based and once you have 'escaped' you will know the secrets to the 'room'. This card game does a very good job of replicating the escape room experience and the puzzles are nice and challenging for most people.*
