Place Review: Hide N' Seek XL
This week, I'm going to review TwoShue's game called "Hide N' Seek XL." As always, I begin with the thumbnail. This thumbnail shows me a picture of a living room or bedroom. It looks small on the outside. Well, we're going to find out more.
I entered this place and was introduced by a lobby with a lot of pink. The round didn't start yet, so I took the liberty of trying out what TwoShue calls "Advanced Obstacles," I make an attempt to prove his statement wrong. This obstacle is called the "pipe jump," which seems easy at first. I completely fail many times, which makes me angry. I then, after trying more than 20 times, beat it! The round took like 4 minutes to start.
The game started out with me hiding, which sounded fun at first. I then realized, the seeker was none other than a Guest. The Guest was roaming around searching for the hiders and was unsuccessful. I was hiding in a bush. The round had to end because the Guest could not find us in time. I have to admit, this game starts out to be fun, then it gets really boring when hiding for 5 minutes.
I was then chosen as seeker, goodie! Well, not necessarily. I first thought "this will be fun," it was, for the first minute. I then couldn't find all of the people on time, which ended the round and forced us to go back to the lobby.
