Facility 47 Game Review
This is definitely a game worth playing, if you are looking for a new point-and-click adventure escape game. The atmospherics are spot-on, from the visuals to the sounds. The puzzles and mini-games are varied and tricky enough to get you really thinking. Without being unsolvable! And if you do get stuck, the hints system is very useful. In giving you solutions or to guide you to the next action required.
An all-in-all, Facility 47 is an excellent ‘cool’ escape game for computer or mobile players!
