Full description
Here's a sneak peek to the storyline: “You are a Private Investigator in charge of solving the mysterious disappearance, and possible murder, of Teresa do Carmo. She is a famous fado singer, known as one of the Seven Grand Wonders of Alfama. You do suspect foul play, a crime of passion. Teresa do Carmo had a bohemian reputation, and maybe one of her lovers did the bad deed.” As you solve challenges, the story unfolds and exact directions on your phone will guide you to the next location. So, are you up for an exciting city game? The city game starts at Portal da Nossa Senhora da Conceição Velha. It will take you around 2 to 2.5 hours to complete and you can also explore at your own pace: pause the game and resume anytime from the location where you paused it. You will finish at Cais das Colunas. After your booking, you will receive an email on how to download the game to your phone. You can play on your own, in a large group, or in several smaller groups that compete against each other and meet at the final stop of the game. For larger groups, one person can purchase access for the entire group by selecting the number of people in the group. All group members will be able to download and play the city game on their phones. Alternatively, each person can make their own purchase.

The price-performance ratio was okay. However, the whole thing kind of dragged on and the story wasn't really exciting. But we saw a lot of Alfama - also many corners that we probably would not have come to on our own.

Good experience to get to know the Alfama neighborhood. Very original. However, we did identify some translation errors (which sometimes made the tests difficult to read) and even one of the challenges had the correct answer in English.

It's cool but a little monotonous.
