Description: Haunting Hour is a cross-platform multiplayer VR escape room experience that mixes a silly atmosphere with serious puzzle solving. Players have one hour to complete a series of physical and mental challenges while brewing potions, chasing cats, and generally wrecking the place. If they can break the spellbinding them to the castle, they just might escape before the witch comes home.

Silliness aside, the game is a challenge, and many players will have to make multiple attempts if they want to escape the evil witch’s clutches. The castle is devious, but the rewards are bountiful. Special achievements and challenges will earn players unique costumes. Work hard and communicate with your team or you won’t stand a ghost of a chance!

Review: Haunting Hour is a cartoon style escape room game in which you and up to 3 friends will have to solve the clues as spooky ghosts. On paper, this is a pretty great game with its colourful, Halloween style graphics and multiplayer game, it’s a blast to have you and some friends solving puzzles together and generally messing about. However…if you don’t have friends to play this with or indeed willing to pay the £4.79 current asking price this game is as dead as they come. Sure, you can play on your own, but you won’t even justify the small asking price. Its a great game it really is, but without a player base its sadly kind of pointless.
