Description: The Poisoner is a horror escape room you’ve never seen before! Immerse yourself in a darkly atmospheric thriller. You are police detectives on the trail of a dangerous criminal. Original puzzles and dark atmosphere, a mysterious criminal who is going to catch you and leave in his house forever. This is the start of a big detective story to come soon.
Review:‘The Poisoner’ is an action game that is mostly a puzzle escape room style of gameplay. I have to say, it is quite well made with a nice tense atmosphere from start to finish. But the gameplay is where the game lets itself down a litter as it is far too basic at best given the small number of interactions you have to perform. There is nothing challenging here and it doesn’t last much longer than 30 mins and I got stuck on 1 puzzle. While I can’t suggest paying £7.19 for this if you managed to grab this in a good sale you might be happier with your purchase than I was. If you like your escape rooms on the easy side this might well be worth a look.
