JUJUTSU KAISEN Online Puzzle Game "Escape from the Cursed Spirit of the Abandoned School"
Who it Caters to
Jujutsu Kaisen Online Puzzle Game – Escape from The Cursed Spirit of The Abandoned School brings us back to when we were kids as we grab our pens, sheets of paper, and scissors to play a game with our favorite cast of Jujutsu sorcerers! Folks, if you’re like us and tired of the mindless clone games for shounen series, then you may want to continue reading this review!
What to Expect
Players must buy the kit and, when it arrives, you scan the QR Code on one of the sheets to get a link to a video! From here, the game commences but be sure to free up at least 1-2 hours as this game is meant to be really played in one session for maximum enjoyment.
When you begin, the game seems simple enough. Gojo talks to the other students and informs them of the mission—and why he can’t conveniently be there physically for them—and then it’s up to the player(s) to start it. After several brief and static screens with full voice acting, you will enter the school and start investigating.
Jujutsu Kaisen Online Puzzle Game – Escape from The Cursed Spirit of The Abandoned School goes further once you start using your paper doll. In your kit, you will have two pages, and one of them is for your doll specifically. Here you fold the doll to match the contours of the puzzle you need to solve. It can be a bit confusing at first, but after some trial and error, you’ll understand how to make the doll spell out a word for you to move on further. This is why we think having multiple players while playing Jujutsu Kaisen Online Puzzle Game – Escape from The Cursed Spirit of The Abandoned School is helpful. One mind can solve these puzzles, but two or more will make the challenge significantly easier.
The great thing about Jujutsu Kaisen Online Puzzle Game – Escape from The Cursed Spirit of The Abandoned School is that one kit can work for an entire group! There isn’t a need to buy different variants or have a group each buy separate games—though it does help for solving some of the escape room’s tougher, later puzzles—and reminds us of the concept of the old school board games. Many games need multiple copies to be played with everyone but here, one will do and that is very surprising for a modern game!
Lastly, let’s talk about the paper doll elements. Honestly, this was the hardest part for us to figure out, as making the doll took us a lot of time scratching our heads and wondering how it worked. In the end, we had to make a lot of guesses and ended up really just trying different words till we got the solution. It’s a neat idea—once we actually did it for real—but it could have maybe been a bit less convoluted.
