Reversed Reality: Inside the head of Enigma the Psychopathic Killer @MysteryManila

Reversed Reality takes place within the head of criminal mastermind, Enigma. Inside his head are his plans to destroy the world and you are tasked to find them in 60 minutes. Each plan is represented by a puzzle piece, which the team has to put together before the hour is over.

We liked the concept of this room, as everything inside it was…reversed! The game uses anamorphic illusions, which requires players to really look at their surroundings to carefully gather clues.

Mystery Manila: Reversed Reality

Welcome to Reversed Reality! What makes this room unique is that almost everything in this room is upside down—from the tables, chairs, clock, and writing.

Players will be blindfolded before stepping into the room to give a feeling of entering Enigma’s mind.

The room will be completely dark so the team should look out for sources of light as soon as the game begins.

(Note: No phones, personal flashlights, or cameras will be allowed inside.)

Enigma’s plans to destroy the world are stored in these little treasure chests; you have to uncover the codes to unlock its secrets.

Each lock uniquely has its own method of decoding. Some locks will require letters, numbers, or both. Others will require a directional sequence.

Reversed Reality requires a lot of fun code-breaking. This game is really for lovers of the more traditional number and letter puzzles.

We enjoyed the process of finding the clues, especially the “reversed” kind! Challenging, but worthwhile.

Should you have any trouble trying to solve a puzzle, your designated Mystery Manila guide can help you but it adds a 5-minute penalty!

Asking for clues can be very tempting, especially with the more cryptic “mindblocks” the room has to offer. Note: having your Mystery Manila guide solve the final puzzle for you once you’ve collected all the pieces adds a 10-minute penalty.


Mystery Manila: Reversed Reality

Congratulations to Chuck & Marge Chang and Eroll & Kimbee Magdato for creating, yet again, another enjoyable puzzle experience! Team OAP was able to solve the mystery within 48 minutes (with 2 clues spent).

This Mystery Room was fun because it balanced traditional puzzle elements with a modern environment. We enjoyed the extra challenge of depending on 2 flashlights just to get around, as it forced the team to rely on one another to find a solution.

Overall, Reversed Reality makes for a great bonding experience with friends, co-workers, or family. Mystery Rooms are more than just games. They teach you the value of teamwork.

It’s 2016 and Psychopathic Killer, Enigma, has been detained by the government. Through Dream Snatching, you and 5 others are tasked to extract Enigma’s evil plans. Inside his head are 6 fragments, which you must find and put together.

Remember: Find the fragments, save the world! You have one hour. Good luck!
