Wow, what a difference a scenario makes!

The first adventure (Prison Break) my fellow escapees and I flew through. We really struggled on this adventure though, using every hint available to us. We made it out with under two minutes to spare. We also had an incorrect key on the end of phase 3, losing a minute, and making the escape even more harrowing.

The Virus is a solid follow up to the first adventure (Prison Break). The puzzles are well put together and several of them required a good amount of "think time" to work through. Now some of that "think time" was self imposed. On two of the puzzles we missed a key bit of information up front and solved the puzzle in the most difficult and painstaking way possible. Had we not made those mistakes early we probably would have reduced our escape time by 10 minutes or so. Overall though, the escape was a good one. However, I would give this escape an additional star. It feels worthy of three stars.

One special note on this escape. There are some puzzle elements that have a "printer" icon on them. Printer icons are explained in the last two sentences of the rule book, and it is an easy rule to miss. You can write on/scribble/tear up the puzzle pieces with printer icons. Replacement parts can be downloaded from the games website.

Spoiler - Code 3

So, we managed to get this code, but are not sure how we got it. Something felt incorrect in the way we solved it.

The fourth digit in the code, '1', didn't make sense with the the other 3 digits, as in it seemed like you got the first 2 digits one way, the 3rd another way and the last one just randomly. Thoughts.

If I remember correctly, the last fluid card had the word "stop" printed on it, next to a mark. If you pushed the card in up to that mark, the fluid level was 1 => correct code digit.

Ya, that is what we did, but our 'fluid' was at zero, or a little bit after, so eventually we just tried rounding up and it worked.
