The Good

Quick and easy to get to the table.
A decent SOLO experience.
Does a cracking job of emulating the classic choose your own adventure experience.

The Bad

Very, very random. Lots of dice and deice rolling and chance if your not a fan of random you'll probably want to move along.
Art is either going to draw you in with a nostalgic glow or send you running for the hills.

Summing Up
 

If you loved Dark Castle you'll surely love this too. And with some new mechanics and options there is improved game-play and options so it feels less an on rails random luck fest with now at least some choices to be made.
A solid and tough experience sure to be a hit with lovers of old school adventuring, its very chance led by plays fast and sets up easy so it won't outstay its welcome.

 

Mike takes a look at Escape the Dark Sector from Themeborne Games. Following their success with Escape The Dark Castle now we’re trapped in the depths of space in this nostalgic nod to the choose your own adventure games of the ’80s. With plenty of dice and a sheen of retro-cool it’s time to find out if this plays as well as it looks.
