Review: Peaky Blinders Mastermind is an inventive but lightweight take on the TV show

The BBC drama is transformed into an absorbing puzzle game

Game director
James Marsden
Key Credits
Sean Frisby (Lead artist), Toby Adam-Smith (Producer)

Peaky Blinders: Mastermind is a clever and neatly crafted puzzle game that could do with some richer presentation and another layer of intricacy. Not quite a blinder, but worth a peek.

  • Creative use of the licence
  • Satisfying puzzles based on synchronising characters
  • Lacks the atmosphere of the TV show
  • Not complex or challenging enough until the end
3 / 5
Version tested
