The CompanyOfficial Waldo Score 7.6/10

Official Waldo Review

The Company Game was one of those games that I wouldn't normally be interested in playing, but it caught my interest enough to give it a download. At first I was sort of expecting a cheesy puzzle game, but upon playing I was intrigued but its uniqueness and incredibly difficult challenges. I'm grateful for the hints that are provided when you get stuck (and I'm glad I wasn't charged to receive them). This game really goes outside the box to present you a game full of head-scratching fun. Out-smarting the system is incredibly rewarding and I'm looking forward to finishing all the puzzles this week.

Game Description

The Company is evil and must be stopped...at least that is the information you have received from your informant. Do you think you have what it takes to unlock, decipher, and unravel The Company files? You will need to rely on logic, skill and a bit of luck to get through these mind bending mental (and physical) challenges. As the story unfolds, the mystery of what you are really doing deepens. Will you be able to find the truth?

Each carefully crafted level is unique - no two puzzles are the same - giving you hours of brand new experiences throughout the game. You may even have to think outside the app!

From the escape room fanatic to the person who loves a good mystery, The Company Game is for you!

Includes AR - Augmented Reality puzzles!
Unlock helpful tools and hints - like a Morse Code translator!
Push your phone to the limits of what you thought you would need to do to pass a level.
