    "I live abroad and wanted to find the best resource for watching American TV while I'm out of the country for a while. I've found Hulu to be my go-to steaming platform for all my favorite American TV shows. The plans are fairly priced and you can even upgrade to a no-commercials plan, which I have and love. It's well worth the extra money. I get to enjoy all my favorite shows on-demand with no issues so far. I highly recommend Hulu to everyone."

      "When it comes to mind-challenging games like this, I really put a game face on. I even took down notes while I navigate through the room. Unlike the other games, elements focuses more on getting the clues and then get them connected but the thing is details are overwhelming so I often see myself stuck in between puzzles but to finally find a workaround is the greatest reward. Way to go, Neutral!"

      "It seems as if the instructions are very vague. And the lack of companionship with other people. This seems as if it would just be a lonely to do puzzle with no company and no interaction."

      "Amazing game. While most escape room games depends on 'click in proper place to find hidden part of room', the elements is almost free of them. All is visible and only pure logic counts."

I found it to be enjoyable and intuitive--the interface easy to manage and the puzzles just difficult enough to hold my interest. The gameplay is pretty easy and is good for newbies. You just have to click and mark the item icons and zoom in items to look into them more. Andd you can actually pause it!"

    WHAT’S THE MEANING

    In the parlance of video games, escape the room (also known as room escape or escape game) is a game inspired by the point and click game genre that requires a player or a group of players to get out of the room within a certain allotted time by exploiting their surroundings. Moreover, this game requires strategic planning to utilize the available resources around them. On the other hand, real-life escape room is a physical adventure game inspired by the video game that requires players to solve a series of puzzles and riddles by taking hints, clues, and applying strategy to complete the goal at hand.

    DID YOU KNOW

    Did you know that in the Philippines, the first real-life escape room was launched in 2014 and it is called Breakout Philippines? The gameplay is simple, you together with your teammates are locked out in a carefully designed room from which you must escape within 45 minutes. From virtual to real-life, players are put into time pressure as they try to solve the mystery and riddle by taking hints and planning carefully. If you are a newbie in this kind of game, it is of the essence to know the key points to be observed during the game. Always remember that teamwork is the key. The rooms are intentionally made to overwhelm your senses and it will leave you puzzled and make you feel like you are all lost, so the presence of your teammates is heaven-sent. Next, thoroughness is a must. You would not want to miss a single detail for these tiny details can lead you to the bigger problem at hand. And lastly, enjoy the moment and savor the time you are going to spend with your teammates.

      "Don't waste your time playing this game!! As an avid lover of escape games, I saw a lot of buzz surrounding Mirror. I finally found a site I could play it on, and i'm frustrated to see that all instructions are in another language! How am I supposed to play a game that I can't even understand? Besides that, the interface is boring, and it just looks like every other escape game. I want something new and exciting, not recycled puzzles and plot-lines. I won't bother finishing the game."

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the most clever player of them all! Play and find out; just remember not to look into mirrors for too long as it can be bad for your health."

You will need some observational skills in order to combine clues. This game stands out for me because of its consistent theme all throughout."

      "Sagrario's Room Escape was an acceptable solution to my problems with finding an online room escape game - it was a good game, but just not as well presented as I would have liked. The graphics were unexpectedly good for a simple game of this type, and the puzzles were solid. I liked that it was easy to play anywhere as well. My issue was with the site that the game is hosted on - it has a lot of unsightly and unseemly elements and ads that detract from the game experience."

      "My biggest complain about this is not about the game but about the website. The web interface is terrible! There's a lot of displays going on in the screen. I easily get distracted by them!! On the other hand, the game is very minimalist in nature. It is a bare room--like literally it has only a door displayed, a chair, and a briefcase."
