The Room 1 & 2 Exceptionally Brilliant!
I have just finished escaping all the rooms in both the Fireproof apps 1 & 2.
I have been through what I can only describe as a fantastic jaw-dropping gaming experience.
The apps are the best game/puzzles I have ever played on any device. If only all apps were of this exceptionally high standard. Great value for the small amount of money they cost. I have had many hours of entertainment in trying to find the solutions needed to progress through the levels.
My only regret was not playing the games with my headphones plugged in, because the sounds and music create a surreal atmosphere. It means I will now start over and enjoy the games all over again.
At the end of The Room 2, I felt a great sense of achievement myself and then I thought about all the design, planning, artistic creation, mental ability, programming and the sheer brilliance of the people at Fireproof who created these apps in the first place. You have left me in awe of you people.
Everyone with an iOS device should play these very thought provoking games.
Finally I hope those at Fireproof Games continue with this brilliant concept and go on to produce more in the series. It's an absolute winner !!
Mysterious Fairytale Puzzlesolving!
I rarely leave reviews and I have only got to the end of Chapter One but I just had to say how great this game is. It's reminiscent of Myst with similarly beautiful graphics and strong story comprised of mysterious notes which really draws you in. It's intense so great for doing in short bursts on your journey into work! One suggestion: the hints are a little too easy to access- I keep clicking them just so I can see what happens next when if I were given a bit more time I would probably figure it out without too much difficulty. The hints are essential or the game could become frustrating but maybe make them a bit less obvious and hide them within the menu so we're not tempted by them?
A beautiful and subtle game with just enough plot to be compelling while maintaining mystery. It's rare that I feel I need to replay a game once finished. With The Room I am on my second time through and will repeat again I'm sure. It's hugely difficult to design a puzzle game where the puzzles are a challenge but not insanely frustrating. Somehow Fireproof Games have got it just right. The graphics are absolutely stunning and the music and sound design are wonderfully conceived, adding a huge amount of mystery, suspense, and tension to the gameplay (I speak as someone who knows: I'm a composer and sound designer myself). In short this is a masterpiece.
