With throwbacks to the 1980s, Level Up sets a series of challenges around a mysterious old retro console that has been discovered and needs shutting down before a dangerous virus in its software manages to escape.
With garish neon and designs reminiscent of Tetris and Donkey Kong, Level Up brings back fond memories for anyone who was an '80's child.
At its heart are a series of clues and puzzles to solve but Escape Hunt has put effort into making the aesthetics as fun as possible. They look dated, but that's the point.
Compared to its other recent play at home games, Level Up is on the medium to difficult side so that you need to concentrate to complete it within the one hour target.
Level Up goes back to a time when special effects were simpler
Along the way, the tasks range from assembling your own paper spaceship to deciphering a coding clue.
There's even an optional bonus round that involves choosing your own retro computer game character that includes the likes of Sabrina Slayer and Ninja Nathan. A nod to Mortal Kombat.
While the storyline of uncovering the dark secrets of the Seiyako Technologies videogame empire and hacking in to stop the system is a little like starring in Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy movie WarGames.
You'll need to have a Facebook account and Facebook Messenger to receive messages and submit answers. There's quite a bit of use of the internet along the way as you are directed to certain web pages to seek out answers and help with solving clues.
This game, more so than others in the Escape Hunt print at home range, involves a lot of cutting out in advance, so allow time for that before you get started. And have a pair of scissors handy.
If you are doing it as a family, maybe make that part of the activity as it will add another 10 minutes or so on to the adventure.
With themes about a dangerous computer virus, gaming and coding, Level Up is refreshingly a game that can provide a link between generations. Just imagine explaining the fun you had with those basic graphics and how an old-fashioned joystick worked.
But even if it isn't about the trip down memory lane and you are a fan of escape rooms and puzzles, there is enough intrigue as well as conundrums to keep challengers entertained.
