Mission Escape does it again. This time we're back to try Nemesis, their new space theme game that is a harder difficulty than Escape the Hydeout. At the time we tried Hydeout, they were testing the Nemesis and getting a 5% success rate. Yikes! We had a fantastic time with Hydeout and had high hopes for Nemesis, which (thankfully) now sits at 11-18% completion.Gracie J.
I don't know why I was color-blind in my last review, but you're actually look for an entrance with BLACK awning (not blue), next to Ling Ling Beauty.
Now, on to the puzzle - Nemesis's props are well made and the room was carefully put together. No second rate props here. The lighting and equipment were excellent. There are (no spoilers) electronic hatches that open, voice recognition, etc... all fitting in with the theme of Nemesis. As far as difficulty goes, I would not recommend Nemesis for first-timers. Although I'm sure some smart first-timers can make it out, I feel like Hydeout is a better introductory puzzle room than Nemesis and is more 'classic' in terms of its puzzles.
Loved the story, layout, and final climax of the game. My only advice to players is to make sure you are METICULOUS. It doesn't hurt to check over other people's work, as one careless mistake in this puzzle can hang up the entire team, costing valuable time. Our team successfully got out with 6 minutes to spare, having used all 3 of our hints. Good luck!
