Description: Los Angeles, 1951. You assume the role of a newly hired floor manager at The Atlas Theater, a luxurious 1940’s era movie palace that played host to a notorious Hollywood tragedy. Navigate through the twisted labyrinth of the Atlas as you solve intricate puzzles, discover startling artifacts, and evade sinister forces to uncover the shocking truth behind the theater’s dark history.

The Atlas Mystery combines challenging escape-room style puzzles with a riveting investigative narrative full of shocking twists and haunting revelations, plunging players into a detailed and captivating world inspired by classic cinema.

Review: At its core ‘The Atlas Mystery: A VR Puzzle Game’ is a pretty basic puzzle room style game. You have to find things like screwdrivers and other things to fix, solve or make puzzles and other contractions in order to progress further in the game. What makes this game stand out has to be the 1940s theming. There are old-style projectors, old movie posters and loads of other things for you to enjoy looking at while you move through the game. It does have to be said that it is a little sparse at times and bland, especially some of the long corridors that are void of anything. Some of the puzzles could also have been better themed, but those few issues didn’t stop me from enjoying the game.

Bearing in mind that I am pretty crap at these sorts of games it looks me just under 2 hours to finish this was left feeling pretty satisfied with the purchase. While it’s theming does give it a touch of originality I felt some of the puzzles could have been better themed, but all in all, I am happy to recommend this. Puzzle room fans will fly through it and might not get their money’s worth, but if you are new to this genre you might enjoy it a lot more.
