Escape Academy: Escape from Anti-Escape Island Reviews
Escape Academy: Escape from Anti-Escape Island is more of the same escape room antics from the base game, which fans will lap up immediately.
Much like the "What Lies Below" puzzle from the base game, each level is made of several puzzle rooms that flow and connect to each other seamlessly while still managing to feel wholly unique from one another. Even the aforementioned puzzles standout in more positive ways than negative. The Anti-Escapist facility is brilliantly laid out and interconnected, while the final two levels, particularly the very last level, reach a level of creativity and spectacle that was wholly unexpected. Despite some minor pitfalls, the Escape Academy: Escape From Anti-Escape Island DLC is a wonderful continuation of the base game that makes every epiphany feel more satisfying and rewarding than the last.
Escape from Anti-Escape Island is a fun journey back to Escape Academy but it's marred by poor puzzle design and illogical solutions
If you enjoyed Escape Academy, Escape from Anti-Escape Island is an absolute no-brainer. This is a sizeable addition, adding in five new rooms filled with brand new, extra-challenging puzzles. Yes, some of them may frustrate you as you hunt for the solution – but that’s the whole point. Fighting your way off this tropical island from hell is incredibly satisfying, and we only hope Coin Crew Games has more expansions – or even a sequel – up its sleeve for the future.
I'm happy to say that Escape Academy: Escape From Anti-Escape Island isn't just more of the same as it offers some truly innovative and brain-melting puzzles that are great fun to solve with a friend. Throw in a captivating premise and you're left with escape room gold.
