What's New in Version 1.0.3
(1.0.2) Apple's Game of the Year has been updated & expanded! 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
Superb graphics, good interface, smooth play, atmospheric music that is perfectly suited to the game. Even the sound effects are spot on.
The problems are fun to solve, and involve all the ways of interfacing with the iPad. Some are so simple you think 'that can't possibly be the answer', and others require a lot more thought and memory recall. Some need over-thinking, and some just need the first answer that pops into your head.
I used this game with a couple of older clients in the early stages of dementia. In their younger days they had been working as an engineer and a biologist. Also another with an acquired brain injury who had been a graphic designer and was a superb artist.
While the older clients had difficultly with the iPad interface, they quickly picked up the thought processes needed to solve the problems. You have no idea how rewarding it was to see them reconnecting and working with memory skills that had been thought lost forever.
It wouldn't be for everyone, but for those who had been working in a logical, analytical field such as the sciences, mathematics, geometry etc it could be a great help. I reckon it would be great for anyone who had been used to thinking outside the box.
One problem at a time though, as concentration spans are short and frustration sets in. An iPad doesn't like being thrown at the wall too many times ;-)
Personally, I loved it and was a bit disappointed when it ended so abruptly. Can't wait for more Rooms :-)
Worth your buying!
Amazing game! Thoroughly engaging and intensely addictive. Every puzzle is a challenge, but not an impossible challenge, just one that makes you think for a moment. I found at some elements were easier than others, and I liked that there was that kind of difficulty variation in the puzzles. I liked the fact that there was no time frame to resolving the puzzles. I could think about them at work and on the way home have another look.
I really loved the exploration and visuals. The music I didn't use all the time due to playing in shared places, however when I did use it I definitely thought it added depth to the game!
I will be buying the next one!
I bought this game after reading of its similarities to Myst, one of my old favourites. Despite being only five chapters long, The Room is more than worth its price. All those glowing reviews are well deserved.
The graphics are exquisite, similar to the gorgeous PC game "Myst 4: Revelation", and razor-sharp on the Retina display. The storyline is spine-tingling, and the eerie music makes the game even more gripping.
The puzzles are challenging without being frustrating, and the clues come in a number of stages that give you just enough information to move forward but don't spoil the challenge.
The Room captured my imagination immediately and drew me right in; I couldn't put it down until I finished it. I have now played The Room Two as well, and noticed that its plot is rather less coherent than that of this game. But the sequel makes up for its vague storyline in other ways; it has larger and more complex rooms and puzzles. If you enjoyed this game, you'll love The Room Two.
