Unlock Escape Adventure
A box full of promises and secrets

When we played our first Unlock adventure, we enjoyed it so much that we had to come back for a second helping! The Formula is a mission to retrieve a truth serum from a military scientist who has not reported in.

The mechanics involving the phone are still present. The app is pretty much the same except a slightly different texture pack.

Now that I’m looking at it, it has a very Fallout feel to it.

Without giving too much away, this was certainly more a thinker than we expected compared to the first one, and we recommend playing the tutorial again quickly to get a feel. A lot of the clues seemed obvious, but figuring out how to enter them into the mobile device wasted a lot of time.

Still enjoyable, but left a sour taste in our mouth. Perhaps that’s just our pride. We’ll get it next time. Next time…
