This is a very challenging escape game. First, there's no drawing tool to mark the rooms I've visited. Second, there's no crystal ball for easy access to a location. Third, the map isn't labelled. As a result, it's easy to get lost while exploring the asylum.
Thanks to the walk through comments and video, I wouldn't have known that the three-compass puzzle was an anagram made from the last three letters on the first page of a book. Also, I wouldn't have found a blue gem and a knife unless I had explored every corner of each room.
The only good thing is the provision of various handy tools.
