My niece takes on the universe

Alert earlybirds required as young as 8 years of age to help stop the Supervillain Organization of the World destroy our universe.

Opening up our secret mission packet me and my niece got cutting and cracking down the mission.

It was up to me and my niece to stop a Supervillain Organization of the World, who have got their hands on time travel technology! We needed to stop these juvenile villains, and save the universe from a catastrophic time paradox!

Safely in our living room me and my niece we entered a secret code to start our mission and stop a time paradox from super villains. We were shown a short video via our smart tablet and we soon got solving a variety of puzzles from cracking codes and piecing things together. Along the way after each challenge we get to watch another video taking us on a story of adventure. Remember though like with most missions you only have 60 minutes before time is up and possibly the world.

There are buttons throughout to help guide if you get stuck from which pieces of paper to use, several hint buttons and even a solve button which I must admit we had to use on a few occasions.

In all the mission is great as it develops lateral thinking, helps with communication, teaches about time and a great way to play together with each of us being able to get enjoyment out of it.

Some of the puzzles though I must admit were a little tricky, as neither could my niece or I work out some of the puzzles. We even ended up using the solution button at times so this made the game sometimes a little frustrating for both of us and to be fair my niece did start to loose some interest. However when we discovered the solution we could then easily see where we was going wrong and the puzzles is actually easy, you just have to think outside the box a bit more. Some puzzles though we did manage to figure out and those we did enjoy.


Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Having played an adult Print + Cut + Escape before this time around instead of printing out the game in black & white clueQuest kindly sent me a pre-printed colour version which was a lot better to play with as it was thin shiny cardboard, colourful and easier to play with. All I had to do was cut the pieces out.

The game even though I and my niece could not figure out a few of the puzzles, but became obvious in how to solve when we clicked for the solution I would still recommend as is fun. Just think outside the box and not too much in depth then it will become clear. I think there is just the right number of chapters and the video interludes gave a light sense of humour and break from thinking which I think children require.

My niece said she did enjoy the game but was little frustrated at the puzzles she could not solve and said that made her a little bored with the game. However she said she did love the puzzles she could do and entering in the code to crack the chapter to head onto the next puzzle.

Great for a family gaming hour and great for party activity. However I highly recommend ordering the colour version from clueQuest direct as so much easier to play with the paper being thick and colourful.
