What's New in Version 1.0.3
(1.0.2) Prepare yourself for the all-new Epilogue Chapter!
The Room will return later this year in a stand-alone sequel, so until then prepare for its release with this all-new "Epilogue" chapter. Follows its mysteries wherever they lead to understand the past and foreshadow the future. This update is free to those who have already purchased The Room.
(1.0.3) Fixed a few minor bugs
Good, but short.
Overall the puzzles are engaging, and a little creepy. The great story enticed me to keep playing, but there is no big reveal or conclusion, subsequently the game feels like it is cut short and unfinished. Possibly also due to the very small number of puzzles.
The puzzles can be reasonably straight forward as there is quite a bit of repetition between each level, which leads to my next point; the navigation.
The largest technical downside is the controls. They leave something to be desired, I often found myself with the correct solution in mind, but frustrated by the below-par navigation. This game doesn't fulfil the potential of a touch-based interface.
If you're like me, and can't stop 'till it's done, then don't buy this game. I finished both Room and Room 2 so quickly that I'm left feeling like an addict without her vice.
I spent a day on the first and completed the second over a couple of days. I found the game very addictive.
Only downside was that even though I had an idea of how to solve some of the puzzles, the navigation/calibration wouldn't allow me to do so, and so I would spend time thinking there must be another solution. Only to come back to my original idea and after many tries, realising I was correct.
That good I had to review!
I deleted the original app cause I didn't think they were going to make a sequel but then this epilogue came through and now can't wait for Room Two! Visually stunning though not a lot of replay value (unless you play it through again after you've forgotten how to finish it). I would love to write a movie script for this so much potential, so eerie and and it's building to a great end! Well done!
