Palindrome Syndrome: Escape Room is a puzzle game in which you play as a scientist who awakens after having been cryogenically preserved in the past. To exit the room, you must solve riddles, and while you do so, a fascinating secret is slowly revealed.
The majority of the puzzles in this game have a logical answer, which is always a positive. There are even several conundrums in Palindrome Syndrome: Escape Room for which we nodded and exclaimed, “Very clever,” when we finally figured out the solution. In such a situation, we praise the developer for creating such a fantastic brain teaser. We only wish that this was the case for the entire game. Unfortunately, it was not the case.
In our minds, two puzzles stand out as conniving in Palindrome Syndrome: Escape Room. What exactly do we mean when we say that? Let’s look at the “Password” puzzle at work. When you are near to finishing this chamber, you’ll be left with 8 numbers (1–8) and 8 characters (four letters and four digits). According to logic, you should match the numbers to the characters. That isn’t going to work. So we tried it the other way around. That is also ineffective. We finally gave up after a half-hour of tinkering with various combinations and strategies and searched for the answer. It’s anyone’s guess how anyone came up with the answer provided. There’s no logic to it… at least none that we can perceive. Another puzzle at the infirmary that has no logical solution is the Eye Chart, which you’ll have to look up as well in Palindrome Syndrome: Escape Room.
Except for a couple of areas in the corner of at least one room where the developer messed up and you could see past the edge of a wall, out into space, and no, it wasn’t a window, the sci-fi appearance of the scene was very excellent. The ceiling panel could also be seen protruding out past the edge.
Palindrome Syndrome: Escape Room game attempts to tell a story, and we believe the ending would have been fantastic in a different or much longer game. However, the finale didn’t feel justified, and we were left mildly angry and rolling our eyes. However, the same conclusion would have been fantastic in a lengthier, more narrative-driven game; the kind of thing we’d force our friends and family to sit down and either play the game or listen to us prattle on about its magnificence. But, as we have stated, that conclusion in this game snagged us completely off guard.
The concluding sequence was, well, dreadful when we got to the finish of the game (just 4 hours). We don’t want to give too much away in case someone wants to try the game, so we’ll just say that the finale disappointed us. We will, however, say this. You’ll understand what we’re talking about if you’ve read Stephen King’s “Dark Tower” series (the seven books, not the god awful movie). That ending works in the literature, but not so much in the game.
Palindrome Syndrome: Escape Room was selling for ₹ 174 at the time of the review. This game can be annoying at times, especially the two puzzles that make no sense; as a result, it’s difficult to give it a rating. If you remove (or replace) the two “poor” puzzles and change the ending, you’ll have a winner, but if you keep the game as is, you’ll have to wait for a sale. On a side note, we were planning to buy the sequel before playing this game, but after playing it, we’re reconsidering.
