Deliverance – The Assassins Hidaway – 7.5/10
Over the past year, a sadistic and calculated Organised Crime Group have been terrorising the city, committing violent crimes and cold blooded murders. Confident of stopping them, through ‘Operation Deliverance’ you and your unit have been on their tails, taking down key members of the OCG. However it is believed the lead member of this group, the person responsible for dictating these criminal acts, is still at large.
It is believed this individual goes by the name of ‘The Assassin’. The OCG’s crimes to date have left us with very little evidence as to who their leader could be…that was until their latest offence. Seemingly wanting to get away in a hurry, a vital piece of evidence had been left near the scene, and using this evidence we believe that we have located The Assassin’s Hideaway…an old abandoned oil warehouse in a disused industrial park on the edge of the city.
With your preparation complete, the time has come…Your team are set to raid this factory in the hope of tracking down The Assassin, making the arrest and ending the OCG’s reign of terror. You know you’ll need to be vigilant – given his actions you’ve witnessed this far chances are he may have left some surprises to trap any unwanted visitors. Do you and your team have what it takes to take him down?
Our host, Matt, took us straight into the hideaway as we escaped the cabin in the woods. You can easily play this as a standalone game without feeling short-changed, however it does continue the story from the cabin so we’d recommend playing that one first. Again, there is an actor in here but I found it less scary than cabin.
The hideaway has a simple but effective decor. It’s set in an old oil warehouse and as such you may get a little dirty. Only a little but perhaps don’t wear your brand new bright white item of clothing.
A good variety and well themed puzzles in this room kept the four of us busy, although, as usual, a lack of looking properly did hold us up for a little while near the start of the room. Classic team DARKE.
Overall it’s a good, enjoyable game with well though-out room and puzzle design and we would recommend giving it a go if you’re in or around Lincoln.
2-5 people would be fine in this room.
We went to Cosy Club for lunch after this room which is around 5 minutes walk from Deliverance. It catered for our various dietary requirements and was pretty good.
