Stir in Springfield
The story

Welcome to Springfield, an American town, which has been living its quiet life till today. Let’s start from the very beginning when all inhabitants suddenly disappeared and all electronic devices went mad. It looks like the famous family of Bart and Marge has taken part in this dementation. Go to this town in order to make everything calm.

    Our opinion:

    By Snow & Saol

    Here we are back for a second adventure at Claustrophobia after the mystery of Tesla which had started in a rather catastrophic way.


    We're received on zoom by our Avatar Andrey. This time no inventory, but we have the right to film, take pictures and make screenshots as much as we want.


    The plot is introduced by a short video of the Russian Simpsons with English subtitles.


    Our task will be to save Springfield from the Simpsons' house.


    We are quickly immersed in the colorful world of this cartoon with a soundtrack and iconographic references galore. That's funny. I have a bit of a feeling that a 2D world has been transformed into 3D but still remains 2D.


    It's a room that lends itself well to fans of the colourful world of The Simpsons, big and small.


    At first we'll go around a bit in circles, but then everything becomes more and more fluid. I have to admit that some things were quite complicated as we played in video and the language barrier was for everyone present.


    All in all we had a nice 55 minutes but I have to admit that a more fluid camera movement and a more controlled sound would have improved the experience in a playful room, based on the mechanisms for fans of a Simpsons based universe.

    + We enjoyed +

    • Dive for an hour into this world of cartoons.
    • Many mechanisms
    • Funny puzzles for a good part
    • Surprises.

    - We didn't like -

    • Erratic camera movements
    • An avatar only partially listening to what we were asking for.
    • A background sound that was sometimes unbearable to me with my tinnitus...
    • An end that deserves a crescendo...
    • A last under-exploited space
    • A decoration that looks like made of cardboard


    For who?

    • Les fans des Simpsons
    • Les grands et les petits enfants
    • Ceux qui n'aiment pas trop les cadenas et ont un petit faible pour les mécanismes

    Why play it?

    • Pour .... les SIIIMPSOOONS (avec la mélodie hein)
    • Pour un univers ludique et coloré
