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
How these guys came up with this game is anyone's guess.
The detail in the mood-setting backgrounds and the sounds are amazing (definitely use headphones).
The beautifully rendered 3D graphics are fantastic. There are not enough positive adjectives to describe this game.
As some have said, it seems too short but that is only because it is so good you don't want it to end.
As well as being the best game on the App Store their backup is also sensational, responding to a late night email within minutes!
Definitely buy it. I bought as a prelude to 'the room 2' and I'm so glad I did.
Off to get 'the room 2' now.
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.
Device: iPod Touch 5th Generation
Play with headphones! You have to buy the other chapters after number one, totally worth it!
The 3D graphics in this game are amazing, and I would recommend one of the newer devices to truly enjoy them.
The riddles are brilliant, not too hard and not to easy, always logical. The ingame hints dont say to much and do their best to help you decently.
Even the story is interesting, kind of a mix of mysterious, religious and scientific aspects.
